"Give me the wild children with their bare feet and sparkling eyes. The restless, Churning climbers. The wild ones using their outside voices, singing all the way home. Give me the wonder-filled glorious mess makers dreaming of mountains and mud, aching to Run through a field of stars.

-Nicolette Sowder, Wilder Child

"CANNOT RECOMMEND ENOUGH!! Mikki is magical in every step and aspect... She is a genuinely beautiful human inside and out...She put together a playlist of my favorite music and took me to amazing locations I never would have thought about for pictures...She made it so comfortable, easy, and fun. She made me feel amazing and the pictures came out better than I could have imagined. She truly cares about each of her clients and makes each experience special to them, which is incredible."

"Mikki was so thoughtful, organized, and kind during our newborn session. She was so patient with our little one, as he was fighting the swaddles and sleep. She perfectly captured his little features during those first few weeks of life. She also captured our family and the exciting newness we were experiencing. We will forever treasure the images she helped to create."
- Rachel

The Experience

1) Planning

Getting to know you is the most important part (and my personal favorite) of the entire experience. I want to tell your story through images and films that can serve as heirlooms and time capsules of cherished memories for generations to come, not just take pretty pictures. After your $100 non-refundable deposit is paid, we will begin the planning to put together a session experience that showcases who you truly are.

The Experience

2) Location & Style

Between booking your photography session and heading out for pictures, you'll go through the behind-the-scenes experience. Based on your questionnaire, we will decide upon a location for the shoot, and I will help style your outfits. If you have a location request, please put it in the session questionnaire. Every session receives a style guide, access to the client closet at no additional charge, the option to be completely styled by me, a prep guide, and more.

The Experience

3) Your Session

My goal is not to capture staged poses but real, raw emotions that remind us of the power and beauty in the everyday importance of the life we live. While I will start sessions with a photo of everyone looking at the camera, eye contact is not what I focus on. I focus on movement, emotions, and true connection. This is a time for kids to be kids and pups to be pups - let them run and play. The greatest moments are the ones we least expect. 

Outdoor sessions take place during golden hour. Studio sessions take place mid-morning to early afternoon. Specific lighting is important for my editing style.

The Experience

4) After your session

You will receive a sneak peek of your photos 2-3 days after your session, and your full gallery will be delivered within 30 days (weddings are delivered within 6 weeks). Photos are delivered in digital format via email in a password protected gallery and remain open for 30 days in order to share and download photos. An online print store is attached to each gallery for your convenience. I also offer custom prints, or you can order from your favorite print shop.

There is nothing I love more than delivering your galleries and hearing your reactions! After your photos are delivered, show them off and tag me on social media!

Fill out my contact form and you'll immediately receive an in-depth look at packages and pricing in your email.

How does the returning client discount work?

The returning client discount offers $100 off any regular outdoor or studio session experience. It's super easy to qualify for the returning client discount - if you have booked and completed one regular paid session with Mikki, you then qualify for the returning client discount from that moment on. The cool thing about the returning client discount is that you don't ever reach a "cap" amount of discounts. Each session you book in the future will receive the $100 discount. Please note that this discount does not apply to seasonal mini sessions or already discounted sessions. The discount will be taken off of your remaining balance the week of your session.

I think it's safe to say that deserves a cheer!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a client closet?

My client closet is a closet full of dresses and outfits from different boutiques and designers that I specifically purchase for my clients to use at their photography sessions free of charge. The closet has clothes for every member of your family - from newborn through adult 3XL. Look at the options online after booking your session and choose the items you love. You can also opt to hand the styling over to me, and I will create custom styling boards for you to choose from! We will schedule a try-on or I will bring multiple options to the session for you to try on. After the session is over, I take the outfits home to clean and prep for future sessions! All of this is included in your session and is no additional fee. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Natural connections with earth tone colors. I find that candid small moments are always the most cherished, and the session is more enjoyable when you can just love on your family and pups while I capture the moment. 

How do you describe your photography style?

Frequently Asked Questions

Galleries are delivered within 30 days after your session takes place; however, this time fluctuates depending on my current session workload. 

When will I receive my photos?

Frequently Asked Questions

My photography style is mainly made up of candid moments and real emotions that cannot be reproduced through poses. The majority of the pictures I take are not traditionally posed images. However, I do start each session with a posed shot to get the "Christmas Card" style photo. After that, we let things flow naturally while you play with your kids, love on your pups, etc.! I love focusing on in-between moments and small details!

Do you take any traditional posed shots?

Frequently Asked Questions

All of my RAW images are shot in color. I do the majority of my editing in color as well. However, some images speak to me more in black & white than in color, and I choose to edit those photos in black & white. I feel that black & whites focus on the emotion more than the outfits and setting.

Do you photograph in color or black and white?

Frequently Asked Questions

No, but here's why: while you receive many beautifully edited images after your session, there are photos that I do not include in galleries because they are not flattering and do not reflect the quality of work that I provide to my clients. For that reason, you do not have the option to receive any unedited images, and you will not receive every image I take at your session. I carefully choose the most powerful images to deliver in your gallery.

Can I get all of the photos/RAW photos from my session?
