Sam Senior Session |Richmond Hill Senior Photographer

Congratulations to future Richmond Hill High School graduate Sam Tondreau! You have a bright and exciting future ahead of you Sam. We also photographed Sam’s older brother Jay when he graduated from high school. Sam plans to attend GSU after graduation.

Sam and his family are Megan’s neighbors here in Richmond Hill. The Tondreau family is originally from Washington State and they are huge college football fans! Sam loves cooking and playing video games. His favorite musicians are AC/DC and Lil Baby.

Sam has great style that’s for sure! He likes Express, Banana Republic, and Lucky Brand. And look at that gorgeous hair! He looks amazing rocking that curly hair.

Our boutique studio is always an option for a senior portrait session, 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 outdoor portion of Sam’s portrait session was photographed at Fort McAllister her in Richmond Hill. What a blessing it is to live in such a beautiful place with so many natural backdrops for gorgeous portraits!

What a smile! This is a great time in your child’s life to capture them in images to cherish for a lifetime. They grow up so fast – I’m sure Sam’s parents can attest to that! Graduation is a wonderful milestone for a young person. They are bright and full of energy as they get ready to begin a new chapter in their life and start their journey into adulthood.

This guy looks incredible in his leather jacket. He looks great in everything! We wish you God’s many blessings as you begin a new adventure in college and beyond Sam! We are so happy you chose us to photograph you in this special time of your life.

Thank you, Tondreau fam! Two down, one to go! 🙂

Baby Evelyn Newborn Session | Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

Welcome to the world beautiful baby Evelyn! This little sweetheart was born in August of 2021 weighing 7 pounds and 0.5 ounces. Interesting fact about Evelyn’s birth. She was actually born in an ambulance! What a way to arrive! Mom Baily is an ER nurse at St. Joseph’s Candler and Dad Graydon is in field artillery in the Army. Bailey and Graydon are over the moon in love with their new bundle of joy!

She look amazing in pink! Under this gorgeous rug is a little surprise we found that works wonderfully when photographing newborns … it’s actually a cat scratcher! It is the perfect shape and size to prop up our newborns for the angle we need for this pose. The newborns seem to love it too. Super comfy and cozy!

Evelyn is wearing one of our many beautiful infant headbands from our curated newborn wardrobe. There are an abundance of beautiful bonnets for baby boys and girls to wear as well. We also have a plethora of outfits for babies and toddlers to wear too, many of which have that antique feel that’s so popular now.

There’s nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby! Evelyn is part of our Grow With Me plan! Lots of parents join our Grow With Me Plan as it enables you to bring your baby back at 4, 8, and 12 months for milestone portraits. It’s a great way to capture that very special first year in your child’s life!

This is such a special image! Feel free to bring in items that are meaningful to you and your family.

We love to photograph newborns in simple classic poses. We also love the bucket pose! So do all the newborns! Perhaps it’s because they are propped upright which is how lots of babies like to be. Babies look so sweet in all our props. We have a wide variety to choose from, as well as blankets, wraps, stuffies, and toys in many different colors to compliment your home and nursery decor. We can also change out the flooring to match your own style.

That red!!! Simply beautiful!

Mommy and Daddy with their sweet baby…so beautiful! Our Signature Newborn Sessions include professional hair and makeup artistry with one of our hair and makeup artists. We are fortunate to have these incredible ladies on our team! New moms deserve to be pampered and looking as gorgeous as can be too. Bailey looks amazing!

Here are two favorite parents poses together. What a sweet family they are!

Evelyn…you just stole our hearts! It was such a pleasure photographing this beautiful baby as she begins he life. Time goes by way too fast and they are little only for a short while. We hope she and her family enjoy these images for many, many years to come! Thank you Tackett fam!

Baby Thomas Birthday Bash Session |Richmond Hill Child Photographer

Look who is finishing up his Grow With Me Plan! Super handsome Baby Thomas! Happy 1st Birthday to this sweet baby boy (and future football fan)! Look at that adorable smile! He was, as always, a natural in front of the camera! We enjoyed all of his cute smiles as he hammed it up for us. Undoubtedly he is showered with love and kisses all the time. What a cutie pie! By the way Thomas…GO DAWGS!!!

Fun football little man! Babies love the toys and props we use here in our studio; we have a wide variety to choose from. You can also bring a favorite toy or item such as a book or a blanket they love. These often make your images even more fun and meaningful. You may also want to bring your favorite outfits for your little ones to wear during their session, or borrow from our curated wardrobe closet.

Look at you go, Thomas! No doubt he is showing off his standing skills. The whole world awaits you, sweet boy!

We so loved this Gone Fishing-themed birthday cake smash! The little boat you’ll see on the right was used in every session from newborn all the way through to his first birthday. Childhood goes by way too quickly, most especially that first year filled with milestones. They change so rapidly that first year too. Oftentimes parents, like Thomas’s, 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!

This sweet boy loved his yummy fishing-themed cake! It was beautiful and also delicious! We have a very talented baker who makes our cakes. Her name is Leslie Ates and her cake business is called Ates’ Bakes & Cakes. She is also local here to Richmond Hill!

Unsure if your baby will enjoy the cake? Well, here’s a tip we tell parents. Bring along your child’s favorite snacks. We can stick them to the back of the cake just in case they’re not in the mood for a cake that day or they don’t like sweets yet. It works amazingly well!

It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to! It’s ok sweet baby boy.
(yup, we photograph the tears, too)

Happy 1st Birthday Thomas!!! What a joy it is to capture these precious milestones and moments in the life of a child for their parents to cherish forever. We hope you and your family enjoy these images for many happy years to come.

7th Annual Love Your Pet Event | Richmond Hill Pet Photographer

Yay! We here at MMP are so excited to announce the 7th 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 fourth 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 7th annual Love your Pet Event!

When? Saturday, February 5th from 10:00 – 3:00

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

What is included? Session fee includes a 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!

“If having a soul means being able to feel love, and loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.” (James Herriot)

See you, and your pet, soon!
