6th Annual Love Your Pet Event | Richmond Hill Pet Photographer

Yay! We here at MMP are so excited to announce the 6th annual Love Your Pet event! And how do we like to celebrate the month of love?

With pets, of course!

We are excited to be supporting the SD Gunner Fund for the third year in a row.

(Please scroll below the image to sign up for our fundraising event!)

The SD Gunner Fund was created to assist Veterans and disabled children with the financial expense of owning much needed service animals. Service Animals require a variety of necessary items in order to perform their service. Those items can include but are not limited to: vests, custom harnesses, other assistance items, veterinary visits, and more. Service dogs are trained to support individuals with mobility, hearing, psychiatric, and brain/neurological disabilities. These dogs are professionally trained to meet the individual needs of their partner and completes tasks such as opening doors, picking up dropped objects, assisting with daily dressing, or pulling a manual wheelchair. The SD Gunner Fund can also assist Veterans and disabled children with a variety of “other” financial assistance if needed.

Here are the details about the 6th annual Love your Pet Event!

When? Saturday, February 6th from 10:00 – 2:00

Where? MMP’s RH studio, 10384 Ford Avenue in Richmond Hill

What is included? Session fee includes a 10-15 minute session for one pet ($10 per additional), an online gallery, and a treat for your favorite companion! Portraits are a separate purchase and collections begin at $25. Please note that all session fees and 10% of each collection purchased will be donated to the SD Gunner Fund.

Are multiple pets allowed? Yes! Your $25 session fee includes one pet. Each additional is $10. All session fees will be donated to SD Gunner Fund. If you would like more time, please purchase two time slots.

What do I need to bring? Yourself, your pet (of course), your pet’s favorite treat/snack/lovey. If your pet is a fashionista, feel free to bring an accessory or two. In addition, all dogs must be on a leash.

Fine print? For the safety of all involved, your pet must be up to date on all vaccinations, be able to follow basic voice commands (sit, stay), be fully house trained, and friendly around all other people and animals. The only exception allowed is for puppies who are still learning voice commands and working on house training.

How should I prepare for my pet’s session? Please consider having your pet groomed a day or two before the session – don’t forget to clip those toenails! Remember that a tired pet is a happy pet, so please walk, run, or play with your pet about 1 hour to 30 minutes before the session. While I do ask all owners to bring their pet’s favorite treat, they will be used as a last resort to capture your pet’s attention. With that in mind, please do not feed your pet within an hour of their scheduled shoot.

How do I sign up for the fun? Click here to reserve your booking!

Dearman Family | Richmond Hill Family Photographer

Introducing the gorgeous Dearman Family! I have known Fran & Rob for several years now, initially meeting Fran through a highly successful networking referral group we are both a part of. Fran is such a firecracker! Love her outgoing and friendly personality.

Unsure where you’d like to have your family session done? Our boutique studio is always an option, but if on-location is more your style we have several places to select from including Ft. McAllister, J.F. Gregory Park, Tivoli Marsh, downtown Savannah, Red Gate Farms, and Tybee, to name a few.

The Dearmans look gorgeous amid all of the lush natural beauty that is south coastal Georgia. We are blessed to have such amazing landscapes at our fingertips. The setting here is great for capturing beautiful photos and just enjoying day to day. Ft. McAllister is definitely a favorite go-to!

Don’t the kids look great in blues? While selecting your wardrobe, always keep in mind what colors/hues will go best with your home color scheme. You may also want to consider including items that hold personal meaning to you such as a family heirloom or your child’s favorite toy or blanket. These will make your portraits more meaningful.

Brother and sisterly love. If only they were always like this though, right? I’m sure all parents of siblings can relate, lol! The Dearmans wanted to capture their children before they are all grown up. Family portraits are a perfect way of doing this and allow you to preserve a moment in time for many years. It’s a good idea because childhood goes by much too quickly, doesn’t it?

Love this “hug” pose as it usually elicits lots of laughter! Such a beautiful family!

I know for a fact that this family enjoys each other’s company and have a lot of fun together. Both children are being homeschooled this year and the Dearmans have enjoyed several camping trips and family vacations.

Mr. and Mrs. Dearman…you look marvelous!

Such a beautiful backdrop for a beautiful family. It was such a joy to photograph them and help them preserve this time in their family in images. We hope that they cherish and enjoy them for many years to come. Thank you Dearman fam!

Baby H. and Moose | Richmond Hill Child Photographer

Let us introduce to you this sweet little 10 months old blue eyed, red haired, absolutely adorable baby boy … Baby H.! Doesn’t he look so dapper in that little blue jumper? And that smile!

Baby H. had a great time hamming it up for the camera and you can tell he is the true entertainer of his family. He has a huge captive audience to perform for at home that’s for sure.

Little guy…you sure make us laugh!

Outfit and prop change. We have a selection of adorable outfits for littles ones to wear for their portrait sessions. You are also free to bring your own favorite outfits. Baby H. looks so handsome in light blue!

Now we would like to introduce to you Moose! Moose was an 11 year old Boxer. Sadly, Moose passed away not long after this portrait session was complete. He had been diagnosed with many health problems over the years. Even so, Moose continued to be the light and joy of his family right up until his last days with them.

Baby H. and Moose had a very special bond. There’s nothing like the relationship between a boy and his dog. Moose loved and protected Baby H. since the moment they met.

Time for a little block building with my best friend, Moose.

Two sweet boys.

We have a huge selection of props we can use in our portrait sessions. You may also bring items from home such as a special blanket, book or toy. Family heirlooms also add something personal to your portraits making them even more meaningful.

What a pleasure it was celebrating this little boy and his dear dog in portraits! Moose gave this his family 11 years of love, fun, and companionship. What a precious gift! We love to capture these milestones in your child’s life and give our families beautiful memories to last a lifetime.

Baby L. | Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

Welcome to the world Baby L! Doesn’t she look precious in pink! This little beauty is the first baby for her mom and dad as well as the first grandchild! You can well imagine all the love she receives from everyone.

Babies look so sweet in all our props. We have a wide variety to choose from, as well as blankets, wraps, headbands, and bonnets in many different colors to compliment your home and nursery decor. We can also change out the flooring to match your own style.

We call this pose “shooting from the shadows.” It’s a perfect way to capture a baby’s sweet little profile. She is just beautiful! Which do you prefer…the black and white or color?

Oftentimes parents choose to be a part of our Grow With Me plan which allows you to create memories and milestones of your little one during their first year. If you’d like more information, please contact us!

How cute does Baby L. look in this little dresser drawer? And by the way…we love baby girls in blue! She stayed asleep for this shot so nicely too! We can use different backgrounds, floors, and items in your portraits to compliment your own home decor or a room theme such as a nursery.

Sugar and spice and everything nice. Baby L. is wearing one of our many beautiful infant headbands from our curated newborn wardrobe. We also have a plethora of bonnets and outfits for babies and toddlers. Many of which have that antique feel that’s so popular now.

Baby L…you just stole our hearts! It was such a pleasure photographing this beautiful baby girl for her family. Time goes by way too fast and they are little only for a short while. We hope they enjoy these special memories for many years to come.

Emonie | Savannah Maternity Photographer

Congratulations to mom-to-be beautiful Emonie! Isn’t she just glowing! A portrait session is the perfect way to celebrate and commemorate this precious time in the life of a woman. There’s no greater joy than a new life entering the world and into the hearts and home of a family.

Emonie and Jonathan couldn’t be happier to be expecting their sweet baby very soon! They were so cute together and such a joy to work with. Unsure where you’d like to have your maternity session done? Our boutique studio is always an option, but if on-location is more your style we have several places to select from including Ft. McAllister, J.F. Gregory Park, Tivoli Marsh, downtown Savannah, Red Gate Farms, and Tybee, to name a few.

Emonie look so gorgeous! Our maternity sessions include professional hair and makeup artistry with one of our exceptional hair and makeup artists. We are fortunate to have these incredible ladies on our team! We always recommend a date night afterwards. Mom-to-be looks so beautiful and she deserves a night out with her favorite guy. It may be the last time before baby comes!

This pose is rightfully called the “Warrior” pose. Moms go through so much growing babies and giving birth. Each and every one is a true warrior. Emonie looks absolutely stunning in this gorgeous light brown gown. We have a large selection of dresses and gowns to choose from in our curated collection here in the studio. You may also wear something special of your own for your portrait session.

Just wow! What a pleasure it was spending time with this sweet expectant couple. It is always an honor to be able to capture this special time in women’s lives as they begin a family. Baby D…welcome to the world sweet child! These years fly by so quickly. It’s so important to soak in every moment. We hope Emonie, Jonathan, and their whole family enjoy their portraits for a lifetime to come!
