You might want to preserve the memory of his tiny nose crinkling as he giggles, or the way her hair glimmers under the sun's rays. Perhaps you're at the beginning of a grand romantic journey, or you wish you could freeze time, if only briefly. Whatever moments you yearn to hold onto, I am here to help craft these everlasting, exuberant, and moving images with you.

what CLIENT'S are saying

your memories in HEIRLOOM PRINTS

The significance of what you do with your images after a photo session is often underestimated.

Your investment of time and money deserves more than just digital storage. There's a unique joy in holding printed photos, experiencing them on your wall, holding prints in your hands, or flipping through an album.

That's why I provide an artwork credit with each collection, encouraging you to bring your memories to life in tangible forms.

Signature Session

Session fee of $250 to book.

Digital files, prints and products start at $400 and are chosen after your session allowing you to view your images first and select the ones you truly adore.

"Not only is Melissa a great photographer, but she is also so easy to work with and a lot of fun!"

what CLIENT'S are saying

As a mom myself, I appreciate digital photos, but I value lasting images even more. We don't inherit social media profiles, after all! My online storefront within your gallery simplifies the process of ordering quality prints and art—think of it like helping you check one more task off your list!


You don't need to worry about choosing a location for your session; I'll assist you with ideas. If indoor is preferable, my studio in Macon offers a beautiful, natural light setting.

location Guidance

Based on your styling questionnaire answers, I’ll share tailored styling ideas, inspo boards, and pull pieces from my client closet I think you’ll love.
