Copy & Paste | Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

I was first introduced to the Berns family through other nurses we’d previously worked with at WINN Hospital, and we were thrilled to work with another! What was a little different about this lovely family is that they were expecting twin girls! We welcomed them into the studio in late November.

Megan is outgoing and kind, with an infectious smile that lights up the room. Mike is friendly and patient, totally attentive to his three girls.

Aren’t they a gorgeous family?

The favorite image from the girls’ entire session. Aren’t they the cutest? Love these adorable hats from Snippets Props. I purchase from her shop on a regular basis.

One of the things I like about shooting twins might surprise you … oftentimes they are easier to pose and work with together than apart. After spending months growing in a tight womb together for months on end, twins seem to find comfort and security in each other. It’s actually incredibly sweet.

Of course each daughter deserved her own solo images, too. 😉

Mike & Megan, thank you for choosing MMP to photograph your baby girls! Honored to document this milestone and more to come.

Girls Beach Session | Richmond Hill, GA Family Photographer

A client for several years, I squealed when Lindsey told me she was interested in a girls beach session for herself and two young daughters. We headed out to Tybee only to be promptly driven away by the reckless wind and whipping sand. A few weeks later we tried again and although it was still windy and overcast, the weather proved to add to that carefree, beachy vibe.

We moms are usually the ones behind the lens instead of in front of it. And while it is an important task, being the memory maker, it’s imperative that we take the time to be in the images, too. There are always a myriad of reasons as to why moms put off family portraits (I usually hear the “need to lose weight” excuse), but I urge you to not wait. Tomorrow isn’t promised, and your children won’t care if you needed a haircut or to shed a few pounds … they’ll  just want to remember you. I promise.

One of my favorite images from the entire session. I opted to give this a soft painted effect, and I’m so glad I did as it brings out the softness in the waves. Think it has potential for a print competition image … any thoughts on a title?

Miss C.’s love for the beach just can’t be contained.

Richmond Hill Family Photographer | www.meganmyrickphotography.com | Megan Myrick Photography

Yup, this was the hands down favorite image from their entire session and mom ordered it big for their home. Again, I chose a soft painted effect. It really helped to pop the gentle pastel hues in the image, and I adore how the painted effect creates even more flow and movement in the girls’ dresses.

Lindsey, thank you for trusting me to photograph your family over the past several years. It’s been such a honor to watch the girls grow.

Atticus

Every February for the past several years MMPs has held an annual “Love Your Pet” event in support of local animal organizations. After our last successful one I received an email from Kelly, inquiring about a full photography session for her dog, Attics. Trained as a service dog and nearing his 10th birthday, Kelly wanted to celebrate her beloved companion. We eagerly began planning his session.

I was thrilled when Kelly told me she wanted to pose with Atticus. The love between them is so evident.
(umm, and isn’t Kelly stunning?)

This was a favorite image from Atticus’ session. One edit is clean, the other has a painterly effect. Which do you prefer? If you’ve followed me for long you know that I’m a pretty pain Jane as far as editing goes, but every now and then it’s fun to experiment and try out artistic edits. Personally, I love the feel and flow of the artistic edit. I think the edit works especially for this image because of the gentle posing, plus neither subject is looking at the camera, which allows for more intimacy and tenderness.

I spotted this amazing antique chair in a snapshot Kelly sent me, and I asked if she could bring it in. Loved the texture it provided for Atticus’ session. He is quite the regal beagle! 😉

Richmond Hill Pet Photographer | Megan Myrick Photography | www.meganmyrickphotography.com

Look at his sweet face! Seriously one of the cutest dogs I’ve ever worked with. Bonus points that Atticus is trained as a therapy dog … he knew a ton of commands!

Richmond Hill Pet Photographer | Megan Myrick Photography | www.meganmyrickphotography.com

Kelly is a special education teacher and Atticus goes to school with her, so of course we just had to do a little school setup. He even rocked sporting glasses, although he did appear a little annoyed with us. Haha!
(if you look closely, the dice add up to ten … for Atticus’ birthday)

Richmond Hill Pet Photographer | Megan Myrick Photography | www.meganmyrickphotography.com

Kelly, thank you for choosing MMP to document Atticus’ amazing life. It is clear he is loved beyond compare, and that the feeling is mutual. Yours was truly one of the more memorable sessions I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. Much love to you all!

 

 

Princess Baby

I first met the Ponivas family through the preschool where I photographed their two middle kiddos. A gorgeous family of five, I was ecstatic when they chose me to photograph their tribe becoming six.

Aren’t they all so photogenic?

Princess Baby | Megan Myrick Photography | www.meganmyrickphotography.com

Baby F. is so loved and her older siblings were obviously incredibly smitten with her. Needless to say, with two big brothers and a bis sis, I think Baby F. will be well protected. 😉

Princess Baby | Megan Myrick Photography | www.meganmyrickphotography.com

Bethany is soft spoken, warm-hearted, and born to be a mother. I was touched by her immense patience and love for her children. And you can clearly see how she feels about her youngest. The camera doesn’t lie.

Princess Baby | Megan Myrick Photography | www.meganmyrickphotography.com

Gah! The Dad and baby images get me every. single. time.
How about you?

Princess Baby | Megan Myrick Photography | www.meganmyrickphotography.com

Baby F. had the most delicate features and porcelain skin.

Princess Baby | Megan Myrick Photography | www.meganmyrickphotography.com

Mom chose coral and teal as the main colors for Baby F.’s session, and they complemented her skin tone beautifully. During your pre-session consultation we will thoroughly discuss any specifics that you’d like to include … specific theme, colors, and props. We are continually adding to our extensive prop and wardrobe closet, so you don’t have to worry about bringing anything with you to your session, other than yourselves!

Love me some chunky babies!
