I am so excited that you're here!


The experience you'll receive from KMP is unique and unlike any other photography studio in Philadelphia & Montgomery County, PA. KMP is a boutique photography studio offering a full service experience. 



I offer two types of sessions for children, families and newborns - Outdoor Sessions (typically sunset) and In-Home Lifestyle Sessions. Your session is custom designed specifically around your child's/family's personality and what they love. During our pre-session consultation we will discuss the specific details for your session. What types of products are the perfect fit for your home? What will your children/family wear? Do you have a specific theme for your session, would you like to include props? Don’t worry, I will walk you through every step of the process!

Outdoor Sessions - KMP shoots primarily in the Abington, Montgomery County and NE Philadelphia areas (but will of course, travel as well!) Outdoor sessions are typically scheduled early in the morning or late in the afternoon (a few hours prior to sunset, if possible) as this is the most flattering light of the day. I am constantly seeking out earthy backgrounds, urban settings and everything in between for future photo shoots. I have many fabulous local locations that are perfect for families and kiddos, so don't worry! If you have a place in mind, I’d love to hear about it as well. During your consultation, we'll discuss your session location to make sure it's the perfect fit for your personal style. 

In-Home Lifestyle Sessions - I come to your home to photograph your family! Your session will be (loosely) planned prior to your session, so don't worry. The time we choose will be based upon possible nap schedules as well as which way the light enters different rooms in your home (that you are interested in using for your session). 



During your session, we'll shoot for 1-2 hours. We’ll take a lot of photographs over the course of  this time, some which will become forever favorites proudly displayed in your home. Your session will be laid back, fun, and perhaps, even a bit relaxing. Your children will be dancing, singing, laughing, running and well, just being kids — but captured in a way that uniquely and beautifully reflects your family! I prefer to document real/fun/casual moments and showcase what makes your family special. Think of this like a play-date — the results are beautiful, real portraits that you will treasure for many, many years.

After our session, I'll go through all the photographs taken that day and choose the best ones to edit and perfect. This turnaround time typically takes two weeks. I’ll also post a sneak peak to tide you over - I know that waiting can be the toughest part!

When your images are finished, I will send a private online gallery for your five day preview period. After a few days of drooling :), we will chat about your favorites, the products that you and your family are interested in, and I will help with sizing for any wall art as well. Please check out this Custom Wall Art post to see just how easy it is! No worrying about making the wrong decision, I will guide you throughout the entire process. 

At the end of your five day preview period we will finalize your selections, and you'll soon have those beautiful images in your hands! 



Your children are only this age once - this time in your life will never come again. These images will be a part of your legacy - something you can share with your family, and something that you can enjoy in the future when you look back on them. Unlike most everything that can be purchased, portraits won’t depreciate in value - in fact, they will only get more valuable with time.
