If you are looking for a more formal, perfectly posed photography experience– I am not your person. My sessions work best when they are relaxed and playful. I am not worried about continually brushing the hair out of your children's faces or re-tucking shirts. Not only do these stress children out, but it also cuts down on the ability to capture genuine moments. My ideal mama and family know that messy is beautiful too!

I'M Melissa


am excited you are here! Anyone who has met me, or maybe you haven't yet, knows that I am not a formal person. Most days, you'll find me dying to change out of my jeans and into my sweatpants or leggings at the end of the day.

My Favorite Things

Motherhood is by far the most transformational point in a woman's life. I love getting to show up authentically for my clients to create an experience of a lifetime for them. The one-piece of feedback I hear is that pregnancy is so hard physically and mentally. I've been there, so I fully understand this feeling. Still, after doing a maternity session together, my mammas feel relaxed yet vibrant with overflowing self-love and confidence. I believe photography can transform people and lives beyond the pictures we see. It allows me to be creative and watch transformations and shifts happen before my eyes.

Why I love capturing Motherhood

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.

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!!

Family Session


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!!!!

family Session


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.

The photographer, Melissa, was very professional and fun at the same time. She made my children feel comfortable which allowed them to feel free and take great pictures. The outcome of the pictures was more than I expected!
