Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer |Baby Malin

The adorable Malin family was another amazing referral from a client, thankfully trusting me to capture not only the beauty of  Audrey’s pregnancy, but the newness of their sweet baby boy as well. There is no doubt we here at MMP absolutely live by word of mouth referrals, but happily those referrals create an instant bond as we share in a familiar friendship.

A sample from Audrey’s lovely maternity session.

First official image as a family of four. Love their genuine, heartwarming smiles. Babies are pure magic, aren’t they?

Parents are always most eager to see what sibling images I capture during their session. Big sister M. just couldn’t hide her love for Baby C., so I knew it would be a piece of cake this time around. 😉

And catching a little eye contact with baby? Well, that’s just icing on said cake, don’t you think?

One of my favorite images from Baby C.’s session. There is just something so undeniably precious watching Dads interact and love on their babies, then capturing that relationship on camera.

So tiny and perfect, restfully sleeping in the hands of his father.

While MMP’s prop closet is fully stocked for any and all items you might need, making sessions meaningful and memorable to you is what we are about. Whether it’s supporting your favorite team, incorporating a family Bible or the quilt that Grandma made, feel free to bring items to include in your child’s session.

Richmond Hill Photographer | Around the Hill | Tech Smart

As a photographer, my computer is a pretty darn important part of my business. And when computer troubles hit, the results can be disastrous. Thankfully, Mike of Richmond Hill’s Tech Smart is the perfect person to seek around the Hill when electronic strife ensues. Mike has personally helped me multiple times with computer issues, including faulty memory and a failing hard drive (yikes!!). Mike is hard working, efficient, highly knowledgable in his field, and a genuinely nice guy. I would unwaveringly recommend him to any of my clients and friends.

      1. How long have you been in business? 2 years
      2. Where are you located and what are your hours of business? 2465 US Highway 17, Richmond Hill. Our hours are Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm.
      3. Describe your business. What services or products do you offer? We offer computer sales, service, upgrades and repair as well as onsite and remote online repair services. We are able to convert videotapes to DVD and also replace screens on iPhones and tablets.
      4. How did you get started in this business? My Dad was an electronic/appliance repairman when I was growing up. He brought computers home and I got to “test” them after he repaired them. I always had an interest in electronics of all kinds. My Dad taught me how to solder circuit boards about age 8. 
        Richmond Hill Photographer
      5. What is unique about your business? We consider ourselves a one stop shop for all computers and electronics. We work on Mac and PC. We aren’t limited by brands and we aren’t limited to only computers. That’s why we chose the name Tech Smart, because we’re more than just computers. We repair most electronics.
      6. To what do you attribute your business success? We offer good service and pride ourselves on customer satisfaction. We know from time to time things can go wrong, but we will do whatever is needed to ensure our customers leave happy. We try to take time to talk to our customers, to hear them out, and earn their trust. We try to stand out from our competition, we want our customers to recommend us to their friends and family.
        Savannah Photographer
      7. Where do you see your business in 5 years? As technology changes we will expand our services accordingly. One of our newer services is online remote repair and I feel that will expand in the future.
      8. What do you enjoy most about what you do? I enjoy problem solving. Working on really tough computer problems and resolving them is highly rewarding. The best part is when a customer calls you after their repair to tell you how great their computer is running or how good the service was.
      9. What do you love most about Richmond Hill? How nice the people are. Most everyone I’ve met through the store have been so friendly and appreciative.
      10. Best piece of advice you’ve ever received? My wife said, “Take a leap of faith and trust that it will work out,” and it did!
      11. Worst? “Try wasabi.” 
        Pooler Photographer
      12. Favorite quote? “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” – Steve Jobs
      13. When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to do what I’m doing.
      14. Anything else you’d like to share? We don’t charge for diagnostics, we offer free advice whether you bought from us or not. If you have any random questions about electronics give us a call at 912-756-TECH (8324). We’re always happy to help!

Mike, thanks so much for sharing your talent and knowledge with our Richmond Hill community. You may reach Mike at Tech Smart by: phone (912) 756-TECH, website, or Facebook.

Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer | Born to be Wild

What do you get when you mix pink, motorcycles, two outrageously fun, outgoing parents with their new baby, and a camera?

Well, you get one heck of a photography session.

With a breathtaking baby that you just know was born to be wild, free-spirited and full of joy.

And while babies and motorcycles may not seem synonymous, once you meet Derek and Jodi you’ll see how beautifully matched they truly are.

Umm, hello you stunning trio!

And a little smile from little miss herself to boot.

Savannah Newborn Photographer

Loved Jodi’s natural, easy-going personality and genuine smile.

Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

Dads and their babies.

Is there anything sweeter?

I had actually put my camera down when Derek did this initially and I asked him to repeat it. Sometimes some of the best poses come from merely watching your client interact with their newborn. Such a heartfelt, honest moment.

Pooler Newborn Photographer

Miss H. was fortunate to have her grandparents here during the session. Generation images get me every time – how much will she adore this later in life? I imagine most of us would love to have a photograph like this with our grandparents.

Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

And as for Miss H. herself? I almost have no words. She was a dream baby to photograph.

Perfect in every squishy way – hair the color of midnight, luscious lips and chubby pink cheeks.

Savannah Newborn Photographer

You might have been wondering where the motorcycle reference came from. Dad is part of a local motorcycle club and both parents are avid riders. The helmet seemed only fitting.

There’s no doubt in my mind that Baby H. will live a life full of adventure, love and wonder. A lucky lady indeed.

Derek and Jodi, thank you for the privilege of photographing your lovely family! I had a wonderful time with the 5 of you and can’t wait for your next session!

Richmond Hill Photographer | June 2016 Newsletter

Richmond Hill Photographer

Because your story deserves to be printed.

Whew! I am squeezing this June newsletter in right before we slide into July, huh? I hope you are all enjoying the dog days of summer. My family, like yours I’m sure, has been crazy busy! Hours spent splashing in the pool, gobbling up popcorn at the movie theater, playdates, VBS, day camps, popsicles, Bible studies, even celebrating a birthday. Hard to believe we are just about half-way through and fall will be nipping at our heels soon. What have you and your family been up to?

Studio Highlights

May was quite the month for MMP, as we were recognized as “Best Photographer” in the Best of Bryan Awards for 2015. Joining with other winners and friends and family, we enjoyed a low-country boil at the scenic Fish Tales restaurant here in RH. It was the first time I’d ever had low-country boil, and it was delicious! Many thanks to Fish Tales for hosting the event! I was honored and humbled to receive the award, thank you to all who voted for me and my studio. A day doesn’t go by where I don’t fully acknowledge that it is my loyal and trusting clients who keep me (and Lauren!!) busy and employed. We look forward to providing you years of unparalleled service, quality, and commitment to excellence.

Details

For many of us our first instinct is to zoom in on our subject and start snapping away – it’s so easy to do, right? Our children’s bright, inquisitive eyes, pouty lips and small, turned-up noses are all things we want to remember. And while these pictures are wonderful and produce great up-close details, how many things did we miss around our subject by zooming in?  A big part of photography is capturing the memories that are happening at a specific time. The setting of your picture and the environment around you all add to the feeling an image has. For example, imagine taking a picture of your son or daughter sitting on the rug playing with his/her toys. Instead of focusing up close, take two steps back and capture the moment around them.  You never know in 10 or 20 years from now how much you both will enjoy looking back at all of the surroundings that helped to create your son or daughter’s childhood. Even if the surroundings aren’t “cute” or “neat” enough for you now, it will be a journaling moment you will enjoy later. Ignore the dust bunnies, the laundry piled up on the sofa, dishes in the sink.  Backing up and adding depth to your pictures allows more details to enter the frame, and gives a true picture of what it was like on that day. These are memories that will become more valuable to you as the years go by.

Color Quiz

I am an unashamed quiz taker. Always have been. Whether it’s online or in a magazine, I love filling out the little questionnaires or darkening in a bubble only to find out 10-20 questions later whether I’m an introvert or extrovert, a summer or a fall, whether my IQ is above “normal”, or be told what my name really should be. So, in the spirit of summer and all things fun, out of the ordinary and zany, I give you the “Color Temperment” quiz. Have you ever heard the expression, “You are a red personality all the way!” and thought to yourself, “I wonder what color I am or what’s my dominant characteristic?”  Chances are you too have seen personality quizzes floating around the internet or maybe you have taken a couple of minutes to actually find out what color/personality you are, but when’s the last time you actually did this? Do you think you’ll get the same result? Below are links to some fun personality quizzes you can try. Let’s see what color personality you are today! Have fun! 🙂

Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer | Birth of Friendship

It’s no surprise that my clients are the best. Hands down, no questions asked, the best. And the clients that refer their friends and family to me? Well, they mightily surpass that bar. MMP lives and breathes by client referrals and I am deeply touched and grateful for each and every one.

A favorite client of mine reached out to me in late 2015, letting me know that she was sending a potential client my way. She spoke so highly of this couple, rattled off how she knew them and that, fingers crossed, they would choose me to be their photographer.

When Bonnie and James first walked into my Richmond Hill studio, my heart skipped a beat. Not only are they a simply gorgeous family, but the pair were expecting twins to boot! I adore shooting multiples and definitely do not get to photograph them as much as I’d like.

The more we chatted the more I felt myself getting drawn to this family, as so often it does for me. I truly love my clients and working with them on  an intimate project, such as a newborn session, deepens the bond. James and Bonnie are kind, God fearing, easy to chat with, hard-working people. The love they already felt for these sweet babies radiated like rays of the sun, and younger sister K. was made to feel like a very important part in the entire miracle.

Thankfully James and Bonnie chose me to document the beginning of their soon-to-be larger family.

And the rest, as they say, is history. 🙂

Did I mention how stunning this family is??

Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

Sweet Miss K., so proud to be a sister to these handsome boys.

Savannah Newborn Photographer

Here they are … Baby K. & H. It always strikes me how much better twins do while together. And to watch them interact – fingers in each other’s noses, a poke, a hand in the face – goes quietly unnoticed by the other. For a moment, you can picture them before their birth, warm and snuggly together, safe in each other’s embrace.

Savannah Newborn Photographer

Do profile shots make anyone else swoon?

Savannah Newborn Photographer

This shot gets me. Every time.

Savannah Newborn Photographer

Tell me. Who looks this amazing after giving birth? To twins!!

Richmond Hill Photographer

One of my all time favorite images. Right here.

And my PSA for the day … Dads, if you have stellar tattoos and you are investing in a newborn session, I implore you – show those tattoos off!

P.S. Thanks, James, for being such a good sport.

Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

I’ve truly always been fascinated by twins. The incredible, inseparable bond that no one quite seems to understand unless they, too, are a multiple. The tiny nuances, small glances and gentle tilt in a voice that only a twin might notice of their other half. They do, after all, lovingly know each other before ever touching the world outside – from that beautiful, singular moment when one became two – the ultimate birth of a friendship. A bond woven so tightly that they will intimately sense when the other is sick, afraid, joyful or hurting. A mirror to oneself, a glimpse of a soul that once was shared, all within the confines of their mother’s womb.

Welcome to the world sweet boys.
