What’s Up? I’m Matthew!!

The long quarantine of 2020 had left me itching to do something creative. As someone who thrives on human interaction, I was going INSANE. When some friends of mine wanted some instagram photos, I picked up the DSLR camera I had received the prior Christmas, and it honestly just went off from there. I had absolutely ZERO intentions of becoming a photographer. But there was just something about being able to capture my subject’s personality and making them feel good about themselves through a photo.

This is what I was meant to do.

I truly believe that this is the job I was put on this earth to do. While it has been anything but easy, Getting to work with incredible seniors every day makes it hard to even call this work. I pride myself on being able to create timeless images, while still keeping trendy, but capturing your unique individual self will forever remain my top priority.

but what is Matthew Orbaugh REALLY like?

Voted "Social Butterfly" in 2nd Grade, I’m a huge lover of meeting new people! While photography is one of my main passions, you will most often find me grabbing a starbucks refresher while jamming to any tunes from the great american songbook- but if i'm being honest, i love all music. 

I adore all things Broadway, and Lululemon, and I'm always scouring indy for new brunch spots with my closest friends. I might have a *slight* obsession with reality tv, especially if it was on MTV in the Early 2000’s.

I believe that your senior portraits should capture your personality. These photos will be with you for years to come and we believe that it is so important that they reflect who you are at this time in your life. It's my goal with every photoshoot to make sure you walk away with images where others can see your personality through your images. People change over time, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't document who you are as a person at this time in your life. MOP Seniors are unique in that they all want the very best senior portrait experience. They value not just the beautiful images that we create during your session, but they value being a part of an experience that allows them to see their inner beauty, increase their self-confidence and not have to worry about being anyone but themselves during their photo session. MOP Seniors all walk away with the experience of a lifetime and images that are truly unique and special to you.

My take on Senior Photos

Let’s create the session of your dreams, while having a whole lot of fun, and capturing who you really are along the way, all while adding in an editorial flair.
