Hey! I'm Melissa!

I want you to have fun and enjoy the time with your family as we create memories. That is why I help with everything from beginning to end. Between planning, one on one styling for the whole family, creating a memorable experience during our session and ending our time together with a beautiful digital gallery and heirloom artwork for your home.

I wILL GUIDE YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

100% recommend Melissa. Her love, passion and the purpose that goes into her sessions are what keep my family and I a return customer. Not only that but her patience and virtue she has with kids running around being kids as she captures those moments are unbelievable. The wait will have you on your toes as you become impatient to view or get the gallery back because as you see in her work, know they are going to turn out absolutely stunning. Her picture editing is perfect and she uses all the right hues. She captures the love and laughter in all her sessions and that is what makes a photographer so perfect! I love looking back on all of our old sessions and remember how fun and chaotic it was and the warmth in the pictures will forever hold it as a special time and place where it was all taken place.

Melissa was an amazing photographer! She was very professional, super friendly, very go with the flow, and sweet! She makes you feel confident and beautiful. I did a maternity shoot with her and she even took a couple of family pictures too! She was interested in us, as people and not just another time slot. Her style of editing, I love!! She was very fast with editing and getting our images back to us. I would recommend her to anyone!!

Melissa is such an amazing person and photographer. I booked her for both my maternity and lifestyle newborn. She absolutely SLAYED each shoot! She made me feel beautiful during my maternity shoot when I quite honestly felt like a walking hot air balloon. She was also so patient with my newborn and her moods during our lifestyle shoot. You cannot go wrong booking with her!!!!

Had a great experience with her and would recommend to everyone!
Great communication from the beginning, lots of details to help get ready for the shoot including prop and clothing options available if desired. Our shoot was great with Melissa. She listened to our desires and was quick to work with our location choice. Love the photos that came out and how quickly everything was available.
