From the moment you book your session with me, I will be there to help with anything from styling and outfit choices to locations and tips on how to connect with your loved ones. I want to provide you with your own unique captured experience and I want you to enjoy not just your hand-painted images, but the journey and memories that go along with them.

I'm here to help

Motherhood can be a stressful but memorable time. Your body goes through many changes, and you may not feel like yourself. You are carrying something so precious within your body, and this incredible season of your journey deserves to be documented.

I highly recommend Melissa for any pictures you would like captured! She is very responsive and will help you through each step, from preparing for pictures to taking the actual shots. I was very impressed with her talent, communication, and friendliness.

I have had the pleasure of working with Melissa on several occasions; she is AMAZING! She has beautiful, quality work each time and makes you feel comfortable during the photo sessions. Hands down, my favorite photographer! She is WORTH every single penny!

She is WORTH every single penny!

I had an amazing experience working with Melissa! She is so friendly and professional and made me feel comfortable during the shoot. I was hesitant to have a maternity photoshoot done, but she made it so worth it! I loved her attention to detail and her responsive communications. I will use her again in the future and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer.

You will see your photos in an online gallery and choose which ones resonate with you. Once the final edits are delivered, you can purchase albums, prints, and artwork directly through the gallery!

A $200 session fee is required at the time of booking. Prints and digital products are purchased after the session, allowing you to view your images and select what best suits your family's needs.

Image collections begin at $500. Everyone has different intentions for their images, and I like to give my clients options to help fulfill those intentions in a way that best fits their needs. Each of my three collections includes a specific number of high-resolution digital images and a set amount of artwork credit to be used in the online gallery store.

As mothers, we want to hold on to each moment, every milestone, each kiss goodnight. As we grow older alongside our children, the memories of those moments begin to fade and our photographs are all that we have left. With my help, let's turn your beautiful images into stunning heirlooms that can be passed down from generation to generation. 

Artwork credits can be used to purchase a variety of prints, such as lay flat albums, acrylic blocks, deckled framed prints, etc., available in your online gallery store.

THE IMPORTANCE OF HEIRLOOMS AND LEGACY.

Maternity sessions typically take place between 30-34 weeks, but this can vary depending on how you’re feeling and personal preference. It’s ideal to have a defined bump by the time you do the photos, but not feel so pregnant that you are really uncomfortable.

06. when is the best time to book maternity photos?

$200 non-refundable booking fee and signed contract are required to reserve your date. Your session is not booked until both are received. Digital image collections begin at $500 and are chosen after your proofing gallery is sent.

05. Do you offer payment plans?

Afterpay is now available as a payment option for your image collection purchase and print purchases allowing you to buy and pay later!

04. WHAT IS REQUIRED TO BOOK?

You will receive a proofing gallery of your photos within 5 days of your shoot. You can then choose which photos you would like to purchase, and as soon as I receive your final selections, I will have those to you within 3 weeks.

03. How fast will I get my photos back?

My clients have access to my client closet where they can browse through and pick out items. I also offer a styling service to help my clients pick out a cohesive wardrobe for the whole family.

02. what are your travel fees?

Travel up to 90 miles is included with my Signature session. Travel fees are $50 extra for each hour outside of my city each way.
