about

Hey! It's me, Melissa.

I knew as soon as our first son was born that I wanted to remember every tiny piece of his precious little soul. These God-formed details and expressions seemed to change weekly…even daily. I immediately invested in my first camera and photographed him constantly. These images continue to bring me so much joy and mean even more to me now, years down the road, than they did when I took them. I now have the privilege of evoking this same nostalgic joy through beautiful imagery for other families.

I create images that are authentic, honest, and tender. I am here to help you remember exactly how you felt in these

precious, fleeting moments, with your kids growing up right before your eyes. Your toddler’s dimpled hands grasping yours. Your five year old clutching your leg in excitement. That grin and those cheeks that seem to change with every season despite your best efforts to slow down time.

I believe deeply in photographing more than just smiles. I capture connections. Decades from now, I want you to look at these images and let them transport you back in time the way nothing else will be able to. These are the good old days. I’m here to preserve these moments and turn them into heirloom worthy works of art for your family.

Let’s chat about how we can make a relaxed, enjoyable session that produces timeless images for your family.

traveling

Whether across the ocean or a day trip down the road, exploring this beautiful world always leaves me refreshed and inspired.

sushi dates

Sushi dates with my husband typically consist of putting the kids to bed early and ordering takeout. After a busy week with kids, this is my perfect Friday night!

iced coffee

Iced coffee is my drink of choice most mornings. If I get to enjoy it with a friend it's twice as good!
