MAETOG | "For Generations to Come"
“The motto of my photography business is: For generations to come. My dad passed away when I was 11 years old and those photographs are some of the things I hold most dear. My aunt had one of those big camcorders that weighed you down and she has so many home videos, so many memories.
“When I meet with my clients, I photograph with the mindset that these are images that you’re going to have for ever. You’re going to be telling your children, your grandchildren and you’re going to remember that feeling.
“I look for those personal moments in the families.”
Family is her target market and Ms Edwards has earned a loyal following of repeat clients.
“I’ve built great relationships with my clients, so I’ve done their engagement photos, their annual Christmas cards, so they will push me. I’ve got the biggest cheerleaders. They have more belief in me than I have in myself.”
Professionally, she goes by the name Maetog.
MAE stands for Mark Allen Edwards, her father’s initials.
