The Photographer

Raven is a mom and photographer who loves her little boy, she is constantly running after him as a full-time “Mamarazzi” and play mate.  Only when it is the dog’s turn for some photos does her Mr. Man Pants get a rest.

Raven named her photography business after her son.  He was given the nickname “Little Mister Man Pants” at birth and it stuck for her toddler going on 20. It was only fitting to name her business after her main inspiration. Little Mister Man Pants was a mouthful, so it became LMMP.

Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Raven is a huge Buckeye fan and bleeds scarlet and grey.  On any given day you can shout out an O-H and she’ll return an I-O!

Raven specializes in on-location, natural-light portraits and often takes a photojournalist approach at times during her sessions.  To her, location shoots allow your children (and you) to be more relaxed and act like yourselves.  In essence, it captures your true family spirit and makes wonderful memories you can hang on your walls for years to come.  Indoor and studio portraits are available at request.

Raven does volunteer work for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Organization as a digital retouch artist. She is also a photographer for The Littlest Heros Project, a member of WPPI and active member of the IHF community.

From time to time, you will see LMMP Photography take part in contests and fix-it-fridays. These help to keep Raven’s techniques in tip-top shape and follow the latest trends in photography. Please feel free to comment on the blog or email Raven at

    I found you on the Now I lay me donw to sleep website.
    My husband and I lost our son at 23 weeks and 4 days gestation on 10-09-09.
    At the time we were not aware of the site, we were left atking pictures of our son; luckliy we are photographers because our pictures look much better then the hospital ones.

    Can you please email me how much you would charge to fix the photo for me.
