the photographer

oh hey there, i'm mal!

I'm so glad you're here and I can't wait to get to know a little bit more about you. I not only want to provide you with beautiful captures of your family, but to also provide an unforgettable experience. I'd love to share more about who I am so you can determine if I am the right match for you!


As you may have gathered, I'm Mallory Jackson, but you can call me Mal. First things first, let's get into how I got here. I graduated from VCU in Richmond, Virginia in 2018 with a degree in sociology. I knew I loved working with people and I wanted to capture their stories. I quickly jumped into photography full time and I am so glad I did! The moments that naturally unfold between families at their session makes my career my passion. I love watching kiddos belly laugh with dad while he tosses them around and the sweetest snuggles with mom towards the end when they're tired. I strive to give my clients something to look back on when their little baby is all grown up and no longer makes the "face" that made them swoon, when their curls turn to straight hair and when their hands lose their little dimples. I want to watch your children grow up in front of my lens and to tell your beautiful story, no matter how crazy it may be!    

the stylist

hi everyone, megan here

Meet Megan, my sister in law and your new personal stylist! That's right, every Mal Jack session comes with a complimentary styling assistant. So what does that mean? Once you have filled out your styling questionnaire, Megan will work with you to find outfits that fit your family's style and budget! 


Megan loves her family, chipotle and all things styling! She is originally from Colorado and then moved to Virginia for college to play soccer at VCU. She met my brother there while he was playing baseball. After graduation they headed back to Colorado and have built a life there! She is probably one of the nicest people I’ve ever met and I’m so excited to have her on my team! You guys are going to love her just as much as I do!​


Your style will be in the best hands will Megan; she has been through the process of family pictures with me since the beginning and understands the impact of a good wardrobe for your session!
