We don't think getting photos of your family is just about the camera. We feel strongly about working with you until you're satisfied that the perfect vision in your head is realized and you have something you'd be proud to display above your fireplace or all over social media.

And that starts with taking the time to get it right, using our decades of expertise, and, to be honest, really loving what we do! We think of custom photography as an investment. As you can see, it's one well worth it!

Rock the Bump

capturing the natural beauty of pregnancy

The baby bump to newborn baby journey is simply incredible.

The fact we get to capture these fleeting moments for new parents is an amazing blessing. We adore getting to know our clients and watching their families grow from "It's happening!" to "It happened!"

Just New

We agree- your newborn baby IS the cutest!

There's nothing we love better than to make connections with families so we can give them timeless heirloom images to cherish forever. The perfect time to do that? When your baby is brand new!

We have neo-natal certified staff who know exactly how to properly handle your bundle of joy to get that "Look how perfect!" image.

Milestone Events

From Cake Smashes to growing up Moments

You know how they say "Kids grow up too fast?" It's true, and that's why we love offering milestone packages. As your baby gets older, we can create themes such as a cake smash or six-month birthday photo shoot.

It's the kind of photography you are so, so glad you got years later. Make sure to book this as soon as you can for scheduling purposes.

Lovebirds

Engagement, Wedding & Just Because you're in love

You see those captivating engagement/wedding photos of friends on Facebook and think, "I want that to be us!" We want you to cherish those memorable moments of love, and make a point of being as low-stress as possible on your big day.

We'll work with you to pick the perfect engagement photo spot, or get the exact look and feel you want in your wedding photography (we love candids!). We even do boudoir, anniversary, and other romantic photographic sessions. Let us know what you have in mind, and we can help elevate the romance.

We're passionate about getting the perfect image.

We look forward to working with you to plan the most perfect portraiture session. For us, it's a matter of cherishing families and valuing both their time and the importance of getting it right.

You may wonder, why go with a professional photographer when I can just use my phone or have a friend use their point-and-shoot?

We think there are moments in life when you deserve the absolute best photos possible, images that can only be captured when you've got an experienced team who knows how to keep babies, toddlers, and parents happy!

From Kylie's experience as a nurse to the entire team's attention to detail, we are exactly who you want to capture what's beautiful about your family.

Here's a little about us! 


Kylie

I specialize modern, fine art newborn & baby photography. I love what I do and it shows in every photo I take. You will walk away from a session with me with unique and original portraits that will be treasured forever. I am completely inspired by babies, children and families. I find everything about young lives to be so beautiful, whether it be a newborn's wrinkled and flaky new skin or a toddler’s first wobbly steps.

Big smiles and belly laughs make my heart soar and I feel so blessed to be able to capture all of these fleeting moments for my clients. 

As a mother of four I had countless stressful cheesy photoshoots. Been there, done that, HATED IT!!

I wanted to create something different for families.

I strive to capture true personality in my portraiture in a stress free environment. I guarantee satisfaction so no worries if we don’t initially get that perfect shot you hoped for!

 Inspired by my own family and love for capturing our treasured memories Mudpies N’ Butterflies was born. For the last 11+ years I have recorded the life of many and made friendships to last a lifetime. I’m not only a mother, wife and photographer, I'm also an Emergency Trauma trained RN with a focus on my love for God and medical missions. Income from my art supports global efforts for medical aid and relief. I’m pediatric and Neonatal certified and have a team of baby experts at every newborn session handling our tiniest of clients.

I am a lover of photography, the outdoors and life. I have a passion for capturing every memory and I have lived life with a camera in my hand. In 2011, my husband and I were blessed to become parents to a beautiful baby girl.

Our daughter, Lily Grace, was born with a rare genetic disorder called Zellweger Syndrome and went to be with Jesus after three short months here on earth.

Through her, God has taught me the importance of cherishing every moment of life. Through the pain, I have learned joy.  I have learned to be brave, be strong and be passionate.

My love for photography developed into a career at Mudpies N Butterflies and I feel blessed to be doing what I love.

Soon to be RN, photographer, and follower of Christ. I have always had a passion for photography but found my true calling for photography through my daughter. I loved capturing all of those unforgettable milestones and priceless candids.

The joy I experienced in photographing my daughter inspired me to create the same lasting memories for other people.  Capturing the innocence of children, the warmth of a family, or the fierce love between two people is why I love what I do.

When I’m not behind the lens, you can find me with my amazing family. I am blessed to be working with Mudpies N’ Butterflies.
