What It's Like to Work Together

Step one: We plan it.

Once Your Date Is Selected, We Will Work Together To Bring The Vision To Life.

One of the best parts of working together is that you won't have to do a thing hardly! I will help you plan for your session using questionnaires, frequent communication, and styling assistance unique to you and your family. I make it easy to enjoy the experience and not stress about a thing. Enjoy access to my Client Closet at no cost to you!

Step two: Relax & have fun!

Yep, taking photos should be FUN. And, your session day will be!

Newborn sessions are baby-led and will be relaxed peek into your family's life at home as you cuddle up with your new baby; focus more on your family as a whole and the connection within your family. I guide your family into poses, and then I let the natural connection flow. And, of course, we will capture some of the baby alone and all the tiny little details! 

I will also bring some product samples to your session so you can decide before purchasing any heirlooms!

Step three: Photo delivery

It's what you've been waiting for. Your images. 

I'll deliver your proofing gallery within five days of your session. Once you have chosen your image collection and images, I will fully hand-edit those images and provide your complete online gallery of high-resolution images for printing, downloading, and sharing within three weeks. Investment details are below. 

Step four: Order and cherish!

Your images don't belong lost on your computer or cell phone.

Your photos weren't meant to be stored on your device. They are to be admired in your home – hung on your walls, placed on your coffee table, and displayed on a shelf. They are meant to share stories with your family and friends and bring warmth into your life.

Your complimentary artwork credit can be used to buy prints, a canvas, or even put it towards purchasing a gorgeous custom-designed album.

Your creative fee is due at the time of booking and your image collection fee is due after your session when you choose your final images. Image collections include BOTH digital images and a complimentary artwork credit.

The creative fee does not apply to your image collection purchase nor does it include access to download any images. 

There are two payments you will make for each session experience with me. A creative fee and an image collection fee.

"She is truly talented and you won’t regret choosing her for your shoot! "

— Alison R.

"She was so patient with my newborn and her moods during our lifestyle shoot!"

WOW! Melissa was recommended by a friend, and we were not disappointed. She is very responsive and will help you through each step to preparing for pictures to taking the actual shots. I was very impressed with her talent, communication, and friendliness. I highly recommend her for any pictures you would like captured!

— Lindsay T.

"She will help you through each step from preparing for pictures to capturing the actual session!"

Melissa is a wife, mother, photographer, and animal lover. When she is not photographing or communicating with her clients, you can find her binging the latest series, traveling with her family, or playing with her newest family member, a Siberian Husky puppy named Kiya. 

Photography is important because it allows Melissa to cope with grief on her worst days. Melissa has lost her father due to cancer and unimaginable circumstances. She knows the importance of having pictures and being able to capture LIFE. 

Melissa also understands the value of family and relationships, which she is careful to build with her clients. She hopes you become loyal to one another, and she gets to photograph your family for years to come.

I'm Melissa — published -family & motherhood photographer.
