UPDATE: ALL THE MINI SESSION SPOTS ARE SOLD.
THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO SPREAD THE WORD.

Last year my 11 year old Jo and I were able to take a mission trip to Haiti.  By the end of the 1st day Jo was hooked and could not wait to go back.  I loved seeing him connect with kids from the other side of the world and I love how he came home understanding that there is a bit more to life than video games and new Lego sets.  This year we are planning a trip to Belize.  We will be helping build a basketball court in a village as well as teaching vacation bible school during the week.  Jo loves basketball and playing with smaller kids so this will be right in his wheel house.

(This is the part where you come in.)

We are funding the trip ourselves and are still a bit short of the full amount. So I thought, why not see if anyone out there is interested in contributing?!? As a little thank you for your gift, I’ll come out and shoot a mini-session of your choice. Family, baby, maternity, senior, kittens? You pick it and I’ll shoot it. (These will take place in the East Texas area.) I’m only offering 10 of these so get em’ while they last.

10 mini-sessions, $150 bucks each. All proceeds go to getting Jo & I to Belize.

Two more things…

1. If you don’t need photos, but still want to donate. That’s allowed. (Email me here: alexmphotography@gmail.com)

2. If you don’t need photos, and don’t want to donate. That’s also allowed, passing this post along to others would be a HUGE help.

Ready… Go!

(Email me here: alexmphotography@gmail.com if you want to book a session.)

Here is a little video I put together from our trip last year.

Last year I had the honor of traveling to Haiti. It was an amazing trip and one that confirmed so much of what Danielle and I have been dreaming of since we were first married. It was my first overseas mission trip and I knew the minute I landed in Haiti that I needed to come back. Over and over. But coming back alone was not enough, I needed to bring my family along on the journey. This year we are hoping to take one step closer in that direction by having our 10 year old son join me on the trip. We are both super excited about the possibilities and can’t wait to see what God has in store for us.

Engagement / Family / Awesome Session
Engagement / Family / Awesome Session

it’s been a long time since i had this much fun during a session.  angela, bj, and addy were the best.  i started by having them “walk towards me”.  they decided to run.  :)

then to make this next photo i had them literally walking backwards.  i know.  i just blew your mind.  backwards!

slamball!  someone (bj) got dunked on.  (bad)


family time!
while watching a movie.
while bj checks his phone.
(don’t judge, we’ve all done it.)

angela is a couple years older than bj.  which technically makes her a cougar.

thank you 3 for a killer session.  the wedding is going to be a blast!

Lauren & Brent | Anniversary Shoot
Lauren & Brent | Anniversary Shoot

I shot Lauren & Brent’s wedding a little over 3 years ago.  They are one of my favorite past couples but it’s not because of their great style or awesome taste. (Although this things don’t hurt.)  The reason I love them so much is because they were and are still totally into each other.  Every time I’m around them I leave ready to go home and love my wife better.  They are killing it at being married.

Back in August Lauren E-mailed to say they wanted an themed anniversary session every 3 years and that this one would be a “vintage style shoot with a 50′s-60′s style dress and hair, bowtie and suspenders for brent, old fashioned bicycle, etc etc..”

This was my response: “you + brent + galveston + vintage = i’m in.”

6 months later here are the results.


If you think this shoot is great wait till you see what we come up with in 2015. ;)
