We had Melissa do some photos of our 8month old and she was absolutely fantastic with him, very patient, flexible and also very welcoming. Her studio is well set up and very professional.

She done a great job even with us lurking over her shoulders and the photos came out awesome, we couldn’t be happier with the end result and would absolutely recommend Melissa to anybody..

Thanks Mel

Melissa was so patient and understanding. She is absolutely amazing. My son has cerebral palsy and can not sit, crawl or stand on his own, Melissa had some amazing ideas how to capture photos of Riley. Thank you and can not wait to see the photos.

I was absolutely dreading turning 30. The thought and admittance that my 20’s is over scared me! 
Doing this cake smash brought some fun into it for me. Being able to include my youngest in the session was awesome! We had a ball with Melissa! I kind of wish it was acceptable to do these for every birthday haha! 
Thank you so much Melissa I will cherish these images forever. xoxo

Melissa took photos last year of my children and my Grandsons as a surprise Birthday present. They were beautifully taken in a park setting. My children commented on what an enjoyable time they had with Melissa while the photos were being taken.
