Celebration of Smiles Success! | Central Florida Children Photographer

We are excited to share that MHP, with the help of some amazing clients, recently raised over $600 for Operation Smile on PPA Charities’ Celebration of Smiles Day!  Get more information about these organizations here.

Operation Smile is a charity organization that provides surgeries for children with facial deformities.  We were able to raise enough funds for almost 3 surgeries!  Here are some of the adorable portraits that we made on Celebration of Smiles Day!

Thanks so much to everyone that participated!  We have such generous families 😀

MHP Celebration of Smiles Mini Sessions | Central Florida PPA Charities Photographer

We are so excited to announce that MHP is teaming up with Professional Photographers of America (PPA) Charities again this year to benefit Operation Smile!  Operation Smile is an amazing charity organization.  They provide surgical procedures to children around the world with cleft palates and other facial deformities.  For more information about Operation Smile and their mission, visit their website here.

Celebration of Smiles is a nationwide fundraising day that PPA Charities presents with the help of PPA members across America.  We can’t wait to be a part of this event and we know that ya’ll can’t either 😀  You can get involved with a minimum donation of $24 that goes directly to Operation Smile.  That’s 10% of a surgery for a child in need!!!  For your donation, you will receive a mini session and our gift of a complimentary 5×7 desk portrait.

Contact us now to reserve your session!  Space is limited and these are going to fill fast for April 20th and 21st!  These sessions are for children ages 6 months and up.  To make it even better- the first 5 people to call will receive an additional desk portrait of their image for early booking.  Can’t wait to see each of you for this fun and beneficial event 😀

Belly to Baby Progression | Central Florida Maternity and Newborn Photographer

We are so excited to introduce a new product…..our Belly to Baby Progression Series!!

It was an honor to be a part of Karen’s pregnancy and especially to meet Baby Bobby. There is nothing more beautiful than an expectant mother, and seeing all of the joy and anticipation on her face while she is waiting……. Then the ultimate reward is that sweet, healthy baby. Thank you, Karen, for allowing us to capture these memories for you.

The final product is a large framed panel, perfect for hanging above baby’s changing table or crib.

Mommies-To-Be: To schedule your Belly to Baby Progression, call us as soon as the stick turns blue!! hahaah! Seriously, contact us as soon as you know you are expecting, so that we can ensure availability.
