What Clients Say
I knew from the moment that I first made contact with Melanie that it was a match made in heaven! Hello, her fabulous work speaks for itself. The inquiry that she has you fill out prior to your session speaks volumes about the level of investment she puts into your session. Meeting her was icing on the cake - she’s beautiful, down to earth, and is one of those never met a stranger types - so you immediately feel at ease. The best part is the fact that she’s there to capture precious, authentic moments, so it’s fun! Melanie’s artistic eye is so on point that the photos are beautiful without editing. So you can expect to be blown away when you receive the edited versions...stunning! We will without a doubt be using Melanie in the future. In fact, I jokingly told her right after our session that I was already planning our outfits for next time! We are so grateful to have these beautiful moments of our life captured in such an authentic way. Thank you!

I recently had a Mommy and Me session with my 18 month old son that was very personal for me. Through PPD and other circumstances, I have gained a lot of weight post birth (like 100 lbs I need to lose). Needless to say this has made me extremely self-conscious, resulting in me taking instead of being in photographs. But you know, my son isn't going to care how much I weighed or about anything superficial, he's only going to want memories with his mommy captured forever. I say this because I know I'm not the only woman or mama out there that feels this way--and may be putting off family pictures as a result!
So as a birthday present to myself, I set out to book a session, and I knew from the beginning that Melanie was my girl. Following her Facebook page, I would see the stories she was telling of other families and was always so touched. Fast forward to our session, and Melanie was warm, easy going, funny, and felt like someone I'd want to hang out with! This made the experience so comfortable, adventurous, and fun! My little one was also very opinionated that evening so I am purely amazed that Melanie captured what she did. That is a testament not only to her talents as a photographer but to her gift as an artist. Melanie will capture something so real and raw that you'll look at yourself and your family in a new warm light. Do I have double chins in some pictures? Yes. Are there things I'd love to change about myself? Sure. Do I care? No. Melanie didn't give us pictures, she gave my little one and I our story. And that is the definition of beautiful!!!! So fellow ladies and mamas out there, just do it! Capture your own beauty! Thank you, Melanie. At this point, words fail me.

Melanie is truly phenomenal!! I was speechless when I saw the proofs. She captured everything we wanted and more! The lighting was perfect and more than anything she captured us. Melanie was a joy to shoot with and her ease and love for what she does helped us to just relax, enjoy, and be natural. My daughter fell in love with Melanie and asked as we were walking to the car when we could do this again with her. Besides being super talented and creative, Melanie is also very professional, great at communication, and delivered everything earlier than she promised. I HIGHLY recommend!

Melanie is hands down one of the most amazing photographers around! She has done my sons newborn pictures and now our fall family photos and the images came out looking exceptional. She focuses on capturing "moments" versus just a posed picture. I'm so thankful I connected with her and highly recommend her to anyone and everyone wanting to freeze moments in time!! Get booked with her as soon as possible!

I loved working with Melanie! Truly the best photographer I've worked with in so many ways. She made me feel comfortable and free to be me which resulted in amazing shots. She's artistically creative, innovative and captures beautiful moments.

We were very blessed to have Melanie take family photos of us with our beloved dog before he passed away. She was so compassionate and loving. She was patient and easygoing with our energetic 4 year old. Not only did she capture memories that we will always treasure, she did so in a beautifully artistic way.

Melanie is such a joy to work with!! I am camera shy and so awkward, but she made the experience a breeze! So much fun!
My shoot was a mother & son photo shoot, and she brought out the absolute BEST in Max! She captured his personality and I am thrilled to see the boy I know and love reflected perfectly in her photos!
~ Giovi Alanis
Melanie did a wonderful job during our family photo shoot. It is no easy task getting a 3 year old and a 4 year old to cooperate and smile, but she captured some really great moments! I was so thrilled to have the touched up images the same day as well! I highly recommend Melanie!
