Hey there! I look forward to meeting you!


Please reach out any time with questions, or to book your session. My name is Melissa. I'm a Seattle area photographer, and former TV news reporter. I so enjoy finding stories, and discovering what makes people unique.


Being a photographer means I get to see great stories all the time. Stories like yours! My hope is for both of us to walk away from our photo session happy, as new friends, with amazing moments caught on film to treasure always.

Photo sessions are all about partnership. You have a vision, and I want to do my best to meet it, and exceed it. The reason so many of us want to take family photos is because we want the love between us to shine, and to see that love up on our walls. Walking past a photo of the people who mean the most to us in this world, seeing the smiles and hearing the echoes of laughter is a true gift.


I appreciate this! And I appreciate how hard you worked to get your family ready and out the door. From planning the outfits to packing the snacks, a photo session asks a lot of you. I want you to know that I get it! I see you. I care that you showed up and brought loved ones with you. Please know that tantrums and torn pant legs are just part of the process. I'm a mom! I'm here with you, on your team, working to get those smiles up on your wall. You've earned them! Your family is beautiful, and you are right to want to hold on to all that love.

go ahead, say hello!

Please note:

At this time I am only offering full sessions. I will post information here the next time I am scheduling for mini-sessions. To be sure you're in the know, and for occasional discounts on my regular sessions, sign up via the form above. I look forward to hearing from you!
