Lawrence | Richmond Hill Senior Photographer

I first met Lawrence and his family when they moved into our neighborhood. Quiet and hardworking, Lawrence and his brother started a part-time landscaping business that kept them both quite busy!

Lawrence technically graduated in December from RHHS and will continue to attend GSU. He plans on becoming a pharmacist.

Lawrence was a natural in front of the camera (as you can see). Soft spoken, he has a kind and generous heart.

It usually takes a while for clients to become more relaxed in front of the camera, but like most guys, Lawrence settled in fairly quickly. Before long we were laughing and joking around (Lawrence and others can attest that I’ll break out some pretty bad jokes to catch a smile, and I don’t even apologize for it, lol).

It’s always meaningful when we are able to incorporate personal items (instrument, car/truck, sports jersey, etc.) or locations into our sessions. Lawrence spent much of his high school years four-wheeling, camping, fishing, and hunting on this land. That place was an obvious choice to use!

All of our senior sessions include the option of both studio and on location. This is a great way to include wide variety into your session, mixed with your wardrobe and style changes.

There’s a reason why it’s called “Golden Hour” … it’s that time just after sunrise and just before sunset when the light is warmer and softer than when the sun is high in the sky. Also called “magic hour” by photographers and cinematographers, it truly is the perfect part of the day for your session, and why we are so insistent on when we shoot outdoors.

KaCe, thank you for choosing MMP to capture this important milestone in Lawrence’s life. And Lawrence, best of luck to you at GSU and in the future!

Baby S. | Richmond Hill Newborn Photography

Stephanie and Fausto walked into our studio for their consultation already pretty convinced that they were going to book us for their son’s newborn session. Showing the couple all of our beautiful finishes and pieces of wall art options sealed the deal, as Stephanie and Fausto knew they wanted tangible products and not just digital files … services we pride ourselves on!

Outgoing and warm, this sweet family was such a joy to work with. And Baby S. was an absolute dream … we barely heard much out of him!

How we love the simple elegance of these poses. Nothing to tear you away from what’s most important, mom and baby.

Beautiful new family of four.

For the same reasons as elegant posing and minimal props, we recommend wearing neutral colors for your newborn session … keeps the focus where it’s needed most. On you!

Gah! Dad and baby images get me EVERY. TIME. Fausto was a natural handling Baby S.

Sibling images are always a client favorite, and for good reason. Is there anything more precious?

I love using props that can be utilized during subsequent milestone sessions, and this little wooden bed is perfect to use again around the 6-7 month mark.

Our Grow With Me plan is a wonderful, easy way to capture all the incredible milestones your baby will see over their first year – first smiles, sitting, laughing, crawling, walking … and cake eating! ๐Ÿ™‚

Give me all the chunky babies! Actually, just give me all the babies. We puffy heart them!

This prop and pose is super popular among our military members. We like how it’s a quiet nod to a parent’s service and isn’t overly busy. This is a great image for a desk-sized print, either on an easel or in a frame.

Handsome Baby S. just rocked his bean bag posing! This is a classic pose and one we do almost every session as parent’s adore all the squishy goodness!

Fausto and Stephanie, thank you for choosing MMP to document your family’s story and the addition of your gorgeous new son.

Lewis Family | Richmond Hill Family Photographer

As the photographer for Richmond Hill Neighbors magazine, I am fortunate enough to meet amazing local families each month to feature on our cover. In December of 2019 I met up with Christopher and Heather Lewis and their three beautiful children.

All of the wardrobe choices Heather made for her family were perfect! If you find yourself struggling to prepare for your session, please know we are here to offer you suggestions and advice. I know wardrobe selection is often the hardest part!

One day a week is designated as family time in the Lewis house. The kiddos rotate choosing a restaurant and they all eat out, followed by playing a board game or watching a movie at home. Love how they focus on togetherness and enjoying precious moments as a family unit.

Such beautiful children! Hard to believe their youngest was born at 27 weeks and spent 79 days in the NICU. She is definitely like most other preemies I know … full of energy and spunk!

Christopher and Heather met when Heather’s brother and Christopher worked together at a local Chick-fil-A. Years later, Christopher still works for the restaurant as an operations manager. Heather is employed at SunTrust Bank.

We lucked out with the most lovely evening and soft, beautiful light.

One of my favorite images from their entire session. So much personality packed into one shot!

When I first pulled up to the location, a HUGE, colossal construction truck was parked right where I wanted to shoot. Just as I started to sweat over the circumstance and tried to figure out how to maneuver around it, two construction workers showed up to haul the rig away. Whew!!!

The image chosen for the cover of the January 2020 edition … one of my favorite covers to date!

Lewis family, thank you for being such a gracious family to photograph! I loved getting to learn more about you! See you around the hill!

Baby H. | Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

As your Richmond Hill newborn photographers, we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to photograph sweet Baby H. and her parents in late January. As the first child for Blake & Bryan, as well as the first grand baby, there’s no doubt this little one will be loved (and spoiled) beyond measure.

Baby H.’s nursery has a Beatrix Potter theme with pastel pink, baby blue, and floral accents. Baby Blue is a highly underutilized color for little girls, and I just love this hue on them!

Eeek! Isn’t this just the most precious bonnet? The tiny bow gets me every time. This profile shot is also a very popular one among our clients. We call it the “shoot from the shadows” pose (for very obvious reasons, lol).

Adding this precious bunny was a no-brainer as we knew it would complement her Beatrix Potter themed nursery perfectly. This is also the image Baby H.’s parents had printed large on our popular round heritage wood wall art.

I won’t apologize for this image-heavy blog post, she’s too cute! Every color we put her in looked amazing.

Gah!! Blake’s smile is beautiful, and look at Baby H. grinning and staring back up at her mama!

Congratulations, Bryan! Fatherhood suits you.

Introducing the Hollis family, party of three. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mother and daughter.

Most of our newborns come to see us within the second week of life, but sometimes things happen and babies come to see us a bit later than planned. Baby H. was about six weeks during this session, but as you can see, that didn’t stop us from capturing truly amazing images! So please do not hesitate to reach out to us if your baby is a little out of the “newborn” stage.

All that SQUISH!

Blake and Bryan, thank you for choosing MMP to document Baby H.’s during her first few weeks of life. Can’t wait to watch her grow over this next year! Much love to you.
