Baby F. | Savannah Newborn Photographer

Welcome to world precious Baby F.!

Baby F. was born on July 21st 2020, weighing 6 pounds, 11 ounces. Her mama, Sophia, immediately fell in love with her very first child. Mom and baby had a difficult start in their journey together, but their amazing story is nothing short of a miracle.

Sophia is the type of person that you love immediately upon meeting. Upbeat, bubbly, and with a gorgeous smile and infectious laugh, you can’t help but gravitate towards her. I first met Sophia at a Thrive Express Savannah event, where she was newly pregnant and unsure as to whether or not she wanted to keep her baby.

Sophia told us that she deeply felt prayers of so many, and God fervently placed on Sophia’s heart the decision to keep the precious gift she carried within her. What a blessing! Look at this sweet face … isn’t she just perfection … created by the hand of God.

Sophia had a very difficult pregnancy. She had two large fibroids in her uterus that gave her a tremendous amount of pain, as well as a lot of uncomfortable swelling. Baby F. was born via C-section due to her position in the womb. After delivery, Baby F. spent the next six days in the NICU battling jaundice. Meanwhile, Sophia became very ill and had to have 4 pints of fluid removed from around her heart! If that weren’t enough, she also needed a blood transfusion.

It was a rough start, but mom and baby both made a full recovery! Sophia said she yet again felt the hand of God and the prayers of many over her and her sweet baby girl during that trying time. She gives God the glory for healing them and for guiding her to choose life! She said she can’t imagine life without her precious daughter and is incredibly grateful for the decision she made. And now she has a lifetime of memories with her baby girl to look forward to.

Sophia didn’t hesitate to want to share her story in the hopes that it will help other mothers choose life. We are thankful for her openness and bravery, and grateful for the Lord’s steadfastness and love.

Beautiful Miss B. | Richmond Hill Child Photographer

Guess who came to have another portrait session with us? This beautiful little girl! Just look at those gorgeous curls. A future model when she grows up? I think so! Miss B. certainly knows how to work the camera. What a cutie for sure.

Love this classic white dress and pearls her mother and grandmother selected. It looks amazing against our favorite gray backdrop. Her grandmother commissioned us again to capture these images of her granddaughter … the last time I photographed this sweet girl she was only four years old. Childhood goes by way too quickly.

It’s astounding to think that one day little Miss B. will show these images to her own little ones.

Love the splash of color in this summer dress!

Time for her up-do … and this jumper!! Ahhh … it’s adorable!

We offer a wide variety in backdrops and floors which enables you to tailor your images to match your own home decor and color scheme. You may also bring in items from home such as a favorite toy, blanket, heirloom, or any item that is special to you or your child. These items make your portraits even more special and meaningful.

Look at little Miss B. hamming it up for the camera! It was so much fun photographing this young lady. I love her feisty and outgoing personality.

Miss B. in yet another gorgeous ensemble. You can tell she is enjoying every minute of her time in front of the camera. The cream backdrop just makes her pop. She is perfection and joy!

Who loves this shot the most? Wow! And we are complete suckers for kid toes! Can’t you can just imagine Miss B. running through an open field wild and free?

Oh my goodness silly girl! She is honestly so much fun and always makes me laugh. Such a pleasure it was spending time capturing Miss B. at the tender age of seven. We hope she and her entire family enjoy these portraits from many years to come.

Cheryl | Richmond Hill Maternity Photographer

Introducing beautiful Cheryl Arguelles! She truly does look stunning in this blue dress, borrowed from the studio wardrobe. Cheryl is mom to six year old twins, a boy and a girl. She is currently expecting a baby girl, due in mid October. Isn’t mom just glowing?

Cheryl is wearing a dress from our curated collection here at the studio. We have many beautiful gowns and dresses to choose from, or you are also welcome to bring in your own from home. Our Pampered Maternity session includes professional hair and makeup artistry for you. Moms enjoy the extra pampering … they truly deserve to be taken care of and look their best on session day. We usually joke with the dads to be sure to take their wives out for a special lunch or dinner afterwards to eat and show off their “hot mamas”! 😉

This is a popular shot called the “Warrior Pose”. If you are bringing another life into this world then you are for sure a warrior! We offer many different backdrops for your portrait sessions. This way your images are tailored to your own home, decor, and color scheme. This is especially important if you are planning on choosing images for wall art.

This blush lace gown is also from our wardrobe. We recommend moms visit us a few days before their scheduled session for a gown fitting. Knowing ahead of time what you’re wearing reduces stress the day of and helps you decide what other members of your photographic party (spouse, children) should wear.

We truly hope Cheryl and her family cherish these photos for a lifetime. What a special way to capture this time in a woman’s life. We also wish Cheryl and her family congratulations as she welcomes her precious baby girl to the world. We look forward to seeing them again soon!

Baby S.|Richmond Hill Child Photographer

Happy 2nd Birthday Baby S.! Isn’t she just precious? We have been photographing this little sweetheart since she was a year old. She brought her beloved stuffed doggie from home for her session. We have a large curated prop closet, but always encourage parents to bring meaningful items such as a favorite blanket, toy, or even a family heirloom. These often make the images even more special and unique.

Baby S. is showing us her “mean muggin'” face, haha! She takes this modeling gig very seriously! She looks so sweet in her sunflower outfit against a pale yellow background. We have many different backgrounds to choose from. You are able to select colors that compliment your child’s nursery/room and your own home as well.

There’s nothing like a girl in pearls!

Many of our parents join our Grow With Me plan. The Grow With Me Plan enables you to have portrait sessions of your little one as they grow and reach all of those special milestones that first year of their life. Don’t blink…it goes way too fast, mamas.

That’s a lot of blocks Baby S.! Could we have a future architect here? You never know! Look at those beautiful blue eyes! We are suckers for those tiny pigtails, too.

Look at that smile! This little one definitely knows how to work the camera like a pro. Baby S. is rocking those sunflower bellbottoms and gorgeous lace top like the cool kid in school. Doesn’t her mama have a great eye for style?

Little girls and blue … one of our faves! You don’t always have to have girls in traditional pinks and light colors.

Baby S. was having the time of her life with this little hippo car. What a joy it was to photograph this sweet little girl. We hope she and her family enjoys these images for many years to come.

Thank you for choosing MMP!
