Melissa! These are SO wonderful!! THANK YOU!!! We are so happy with the pictures and are having a hard time picking just one for the yearbook. I think you’re amazing, you’re a delightful, personable, thoughtful, and entirely likable photographer. My sincerest thanks! — Julie J.
Hi Melissa, I just wanted to say thanks again for being so great to work with during our family photo session. Family pictures can sometimes be stressful or feel kind of like a chore, but you made it so much fun, and it was such a laid back and positive experience. We all had fun and the whole family was raving about what a natural photographer you are! You and your daughter were great to work with (as I knew you would be)! Thanks again for making it such a positive experience for us!! — Amy M.
Thanks to God, everything went ok (at your charity photo shoot). I’m really blessed to have met your family! Especially for the best gifts that I received yesterday, the photos. Most of the families said, “We never had a family picture, thank you for doing that.” What a true blessing you and your family are. As I sat playing with kids, watching families go back to get their photos taken, they returned just GLOWING! Thank you so very much for sharing your gifts in such a profound way. The photos are beautiful and precious! I can’t imagine what a gift these are to their families. So, infinitely thank you very much! — Chelsea M., Jennie C. and Oscar A.
Working with Melissa was such a pleasure! She is so friendly and knowledgeable and was able to get my initially grumpy 3-year-old to start smiling and posing. The pictures turned out beautifully and really captured my kids’ personalities. The pictures of my newborn are so precious! I will definitely look to Meadow 23 for our future family pictures! — Rayana J.
I would highly recommend Melissa, photographer at Meadow 23. She was so patient and kind with my four year old. She made the photo shoot really fun and was able to capture my sassy, lovable four year old’s personality. The pictures were beautiful and will definitely be appreciated by the grandparents (Christmas gifts!). Check out her website and book her before she gets too busy. You won’t regret it! — Yuka M.
Melissa’s photography of my family was both a work of art and a work of heart. She did a beautiful job of capturing everyone’s true personalities in gorgeous pictures, not an easy task considering she was working with seven of us ranging in age from two years to eighty-eight years old. It was a very fun experience thanks to Melissa’s expertise. Another plus was that Melissa enlisted the help of her talented daughter who very creatively worked with the two little girls to put them in fun poses. Thank you, Melissa! — Marcie T.
Thank you SO much! They turned out great, and I love them! Would like to highly recommend Melissa of Meadow 23 — she does beautiful work, is so professional and kind, and even did a rush job for me since I’m moving this weekend. Check out her website! — Rochelle P.
Melissa these are amazing!! Thank you so much. We love them! — Rachelle R.
Love the pictures! Fabulous job. We were really impressed after our time together and you didn’t disappoint. — Danielle C.
Hi Melissa, I wanted to let you know that I love the photos you took of our family! They came out beautifully and I am so happy with them. Thank you for doing amazing work! I showed them to my parents and my dad said that he felt we should be in a magazine. I felt so comfortable there and you really helped ease my nerves about taking pictures with a wiggly child! Haha. — Marissa T.
Hi Melissa, Just a quick note to say THANKS for the great photo session experience and the photos. We loved them all! — Stacey B.
WOW! What a special treat to wake up to these! They are beautiful! And breathtaking!!! I LOVE THEM ALL! I can't choose a favorite. I love the silly ones, the sweet ones, the one of the 4 of us walking in the grass may be my favorite of us all, but they are all perfect! I may just have to send a photo poster this year and not a photo xmas card!! — Carolyn W.
Thank you for the beautiful pictures. You performed a miracle! Thank you! We love the pictures and appreciate all your hard work. We look forward to seeing you around and working together with you again. — Melissa Y.
