The MK portrait experience has always been about freedom – to express your individuality, your style & personality, and the freedom to tell your story with images that reflect who you are.
We create art that transcends the typical portrait. We know you aren’t ordinary, and we don’t create ordinary images. We want to show the world your true story, and our camera is simply a tool to bring those stories to life. We don’t believe in doing things just because “that’s the way they’ve always been done.” We want to create a unique experience and dream photoshoot for you.
Our style is contemporary, fashion-inspired, and a little bit offbeat. You can often find us clipping out pages from a Vanity Fair magazine for inspiration, and we love to get conceptual when the shoot and soul calls for it.
