{That Type of Love} Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

lace

Her voice bubbled over on the phone.

“We are so excited!”

I would later express that the love for her newborn baby girl was more than apparent, it was intoxicating. The type of love that made me smile wide, despite the fact that I’d never met this sweet family before. The type of love that instantly made me think of my two boys, tucked quietly in their beds, breaths slow and heavy with sleep.

A love deep, purposeful, (at times jagged and worn at the edges), unrefined, deliberate, consuming, whole.

A mother’s love.

Circumstance had kept me from meeting Tyler and Callie before the birth of their darling C., but it just didn’t matter. I had a pretty firm idea that we’d get along famously after a few telephone conversations and emails. The day of C.’s sessions proved my instinct correct, as we hit it off immediately.

The Evans family burst into my studio wide-eyed and smiling, infectious personalities that greeted me kindly. Gorgeous, like a couple out of a magazine. And then I met precious C. (yes, it’s true the apple does not fall far from the tree).

Don’t let C.’s sleepy eyes in the above image fool you. She was definitely more interested in checking out her new surroundings than sleeping. 😉

Oh! This face!

This was one of Tyler and Callie’s favorite images. Who could blame them?

This was one of Tyler and Callie

Pink is most definitely C.’s color.

Just gorgeous.

She had some of the most perfect newborn skin I’d seen. Delicate, soft, flawless.

Dad played college ball. Love when clients bring personal items from home to incorporate into sessions. Makes the images that much more meaningful.

Baby C. woke several times during her session, but I never minded. She loved to be swaddled, and was completely content.

Sigh.

I usually win out though, and before long she would settle back to sleep.

Tyler and Callie, I will be forever thankful that our paths crossed. It was such a wonderful blessing to meet the two of you and your beautiful new addition. Thank you for trusting me with some of your most precious memories. I look forward to watching Baby C. grow.

Megan Myrick Photography | Savannah Newborn Photographer

So you receive a new shiny camera for Christmas, your birthday or anniversary. Naturally you have grand visions of snapping magazine worthy images of your children, looking happily up at you with wide eyes, adorable toothy grins and absolutely zero tears. Yet you eventually discover that your pictures aren’t turning out quite how you’d imagined.

Sound familiar? 😉

RIchmond Hill Child Photographer

Over the past year I have had several clients and friends ask me to please teach a course on how to use their “nice” camera. I took this to heart and am excited to be offering the first Tiny Clicks workshop! This class will cover the very basic skills needed to begin taking better quality snaps of your children and family. I will teach you about aperture, shutter speed, ISO and how they work together to create a perfectly exposed image. We will also briefly discuss composition, perspective and “finding the light.” Each student will receive a class workbook with tons of information and resources that will be a reference for you after the class is over.

Savannah Child Photographer

Tiny Clicks will be held February 28th from 9-12 at my Richmond Hill Studio. Participation includes light snacks and drinks, a workbook that showcases great image examples and shooting assignments for you to try at home.

The cost for this workshop is $110 and is limited to five people.

What’s required for the class?
* camera and any applicable lenses
* camera manual

Please note: a point and shoot camera is fine to bring, although not all of the information will be applicable to point and shoot models.

Pooler Child Photographer

If you’re interested in snagging one of these five spots, please email me at megan@meganmyrickphotography.com. Deadline to register is February 11. I look forward to helping you learn to master your camera, better preserve your precious memories and most importantly, to keep on clicking!

Hope to see you soon!

{Celebrating One Year on the Hill} Richmond Hill Photographer

As a photographer, I am naturally pretty big on milestones. Pregnancies, births, birthdays, graduations and of course, anniversaries. July of 2014 MMP celebrated its third birthday – an awesome reason to break out the cake and ice cream. Now, six months later we have another reason to party.

It’s hard to believe that a year ago this month I opened my downtown Richmond Hill Studio. It has been, without a doubt, more successful than I could have ever imagined. Since last January I’ve had the privilege of capturing almost 80 separate sessions, 40 preschoolers, over a dozen babies, oodles of sweet toddlers and a multitude of gorgeous families.

Richmond-Hill-Photographer

I want to thank you, Richmond Hill, for welcoming me so warmly into the fold. I have enjoyed working with such outstanding businesses such as The Ice Cream Stop and Ella’s. I know that without you, my business would cease to exist and I am utterly grateful.

So I think this is the ideal time to kick up our heels! For any session booked between now and February 28, 2015, receive a $75 print credit good towards any print or product purchase. This is a perfect way to add a gorgeous canvas, beautiful mounted gift prints or even additional digital images to your order.

Richmond-Hill-Family-Photographer

I am offering a pretty amazing collection for the youngest of my clients too, those precious newborns. Receive a 3-4 hour newborn session, a minimum of 20 fully edited images to view during your premiere, access to all of my props/headbands/hats/wraps, five digital images and a $100 print credit for $475. Want to capture your pregnancy as well? Add a petite maternity session and five digital images for only $175. This is a complete savings of $345! But please hurry, I’m limiting this offer to the first five customers due between now and March 31, 2015.

Richmond-Hill-Newborn-Photographer

To quote Thomas Watson, Sr., “To be successful you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart.” My friends, I do. I love my job with all my heart and I love to provide you with stunning works of art that your family will cherish for years to come. Thank you for allowing me into your family, your special moments and your hearts.

{A Family Affair} Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

Honestly, what are the chances that:

1.Uncle Sam would move my family to the same state my sister-in-law grew up in,

2.most of her family would still live in same said state and

3.two of her family members would have babies within weeks of each other?

Apparently the chances are extraordinarily great because that is exactly how this story unfolded.

Meet precious Baby S., the niece of my sweet sister-in-law, Laura. Again, Laura was disheartened to miss the birth of yet another new life, but was grateful I was there to capture these first moment in her absence. Because, after all, birth is family affair. 😉

The family had driven over an hour to see me, so Baby S. was quite alert when they first arrived at the studio.

I literally gasped when I saw her. Such gorgeous eyes, with the most porcelain of skin.

Richmond-Hill-Newborn-Photographer-1

 And although she was awake, sweet S. was as calm as the sea after a storm. Quietly taking in her new surroundings, she finally succumbed to the warmth of the room, the lull of a heartbeat and the security of the swaddle.

Richmond-Hill-Newborn-Photographer-5

The purple blanket was knitted just for Baby S. I love incorporating meaningful items into a newborn’s session.

The color was perfect for her china doll skin.

Richmond-Hill-Newborn-Photographer-2

As S. dreamt on, she began to give me the most heartfelt, tender smiles.

My heart melted again and again and again. I was undeniably smitten.

Richmond-Hill-Newborn-Photographer-3

Richmond-Hill-Newborn-Photographer-6

Baby S. was honestly one of the most gentle, calm and loving babies I’ve ever had the opportunity to photograph. She was perfection in every way imaginable.

Richmond-Hill-Newborn-Photographer-4

Ashley, I’m sorry Laura wasn’t here to photograph your precious new life. But I know that our paths crossed here so that I could be the one to forever capture the smallest of details and the spectacular beauty of these fleeting moments in Laura’s absence. Thank you for trusting me and allowing me the privilege to photograph your beautiful baby girl.

{Sweet Little Fox} Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

This sweet little guy is the nephew to my sister-in-law, Laura. Providing that said sister-in-law lives in Washington State with my brother, the duty to photograph precious Baby A. fell to me … a job I eagerly agreed to!

I, of course, knew of Alan and Trisha through chats with Laura; however, the first time we officially met was at the studio for Baby A.’s session, early one May morning. They drove quite a distance to see me and I was utterly impressed that they arrived several minutes early! (who honestly can do that a week after the birth of a baby?)

Perhaps it’s because we are extended family, but I instantly loved both Alan and Trisha. Soft spoken and kind hearted, we chatted easily and exchanged “oohs” and “aaahs” over their precious new bundle. Darling Baby A. was wrapped snuggly in his carseat, with a swatch of delicate, wispy red hair peeking out from his cocoon. He was definitely one of those babies that immediately snags your heart at the mere sight of him, perfect in every way.

The gorgeous new family and Baby A., sporting some fan love. 😉

He loved being wrapped up tight.

Trisha is a sucker for profiles as much as I am – this was one of her favorite images.

See what I mean? Such sweet, sweet perfection.

This pose always make me chuckle … love those luscious cheeks!

The theme in Baby A.’s nursery is the forest. His quilt has an array of stitched woodland creatures, including a fox. I knew the fox hat from Owl Crochet You would be an adorable addition.

Baby A. was one of the best sleepers I’ve had to date; so calm and quiet. He barely made a sound.

And that endearing profile again. I swoon.

Alan and Trisha, thank you so much for bringing your handsome little guy to see me. It was fantastic to finally meet you all. I can’t wait to watch Baby A. grow up!

Oh My Word is this not an adorable newborn session! Momma is going to squeal when she sees all of these sweet, sweet captures you took. GREAT WORK! 🙂
