Terrific! My name is Melissa, and I'm so excited to meet you.

I'm a natural-light photographer who focuses on family. New families and growing families alike. My photos have a sweet and bright look to them. I want your images to feel timeless, and be treasured. It's important to me to get to know you. Even though we haven't yet met, I care about you. And I will do my best to capture your family's beautiful moments.

Photo sessions are special events. Each one is different and joyful in its own way. Sometimes, there's a lot of extra joy, especially from the little ones! If you're worried about what your kids will do when it comes time to take the photos, I get it. And I'm here to help. Here's my two-step plan for success:

Step 1 — Arrive at your session.​

Step 2 — That's it! That's all you need to do. I'll handle the rest. And we'll get great photos. I'm a mom! I get it. I know what goes into bringing a family to a photo session. I'm also a former Cubmaster, Art Docent, TV News Reporter... in short, I'm a people person. I'm here with you, on your team, working to get those smiles up on your walls. You've earned them. Your family is beautiful, and you are right to want to hold on to all that love.

As I say on my home page, let's capture all the beauty and wonder of your world. 

Simply fill out the form above to send me a message, and I'll get back to you ASAP. Or, click here to pay your session deposit and reserve your date and time.

I look forward to meeting you!
