Can I just mention how blessed my business has been lately (well…pretty much always!!)?! Crazy good stuff has been happening and I can’t take the credit. These are Divine interventions for sure!!
One of these crazy good things that’s happening is YMP is expanding!! In the last year, I’ve honestly only had time for maternity, newborns and babies up to a year and it makes me SOOOOOO sad to turn so many families away each and every week and wish them the best in finding a great photographer. So, I’ve solved that problem for you! I’ve hired an associate photographer with a TON of experience, a keen eye and a heart of gold!
Meet Luke Mauldin!
Luke and I have known each other for about two years now and I have watched from afar as he has consistently produced beautiful work. He genuinely loves children (he has 2 adorable “little tooters” of his own who adore him) and REALLY understands light and posing. Luke is a second generation professional photographer with over 18 years of experience. He grew up in the studios owned by his father and has continuously cultivated his love for portraits through many years of assisting other professional photographers and getting behind the camera when he was seventeen. Not only that, but he is HYSTERICAL. I mean REALLY. If Luke can’t make you laugh, you need to check your pulse!
I’m so excited to have him on my team! This means YMP will again be accepting bookings for family portraits year-round, head shots, high school seniors, children of all ages, events and for the first time, engagements, bridal portraits and weddings! Same fantastic style and service you’ve come to love from YMP, just a different happy face behind the camera. Luke actually took a head shot of me today and I was SO impressed! He knew ALL of the “fluffy girl” rules to follow and made sure every hair was in place AND called me out on my fake smile. Great job Luke!
I would also like to introduce my new Studio Manager, Daphne!
Some of you have already met Daphne and have given rave reviews about her professionalism and genuine heart to serve 🙂 She is in LOVE with all the babies who come to see us and in the short month she’s been with me has helped lighten my load tremendously!
Between the three of us, you can expect BIG things happening at YMP!
To start with, now that I have Luke’s help, we can now take on those procrastinators out there who haven’t yet booked a family portrait session this year! For the month of December only, Portrait Sessions with Luke are $75 off!!! Get a 1-hour session for $100 and you’ll have 30 gorgeous images to choose from to build your Collection! These sessions can be used for family, children, engagements, seniors, bridals, you name it! Not sure if you’ll like Luke’s work? Have a look at some of his past work…
Told you! He’s AMAZING!! Want to snag this deal before he’s booked? Click “Inquire” and let us know in the remarks what type of session you’re interested in and Luke or Daphne will get back with you ASAP to get you set up!
I have a few more exciting announcements to make, but those will have to wait for today…
Thank you for all your continued support for this little dream I’m living and all the amazing families I get to share it with!!
