It was one of my favorite childhood memories , seeing my Grandmothers' baby picture proudly displayed  on her wall. It was one of the classics...the old bubble glass round frames. I remember asking her about the photo and we spent the rest of the day talking and looking through old photo albums together. 

I wanted to give families something special to have for generations.   I wanted to create those albums and photos that were so special to me and do it in a way that was sophisticated and natural in design.

little more about


 I have met and connected with so many tremendous parents through my art. I love connecting with families and hearing their stories. Being able to watch the babies grow as the families revisit year after year is far more than I expected to achieve. 

As your luxury photographer, my goal is to create an amazing experience. I am passionate about creating photographs that are more than just photos. You deserve to have gorgeous heirlooms that can be passed down from generation to generation. I strive to make your entire experience stress free. It’ll be enjoyable for your entire family. Booking, prepping, and delivery will be one to remember. I will work extensively with you to plan the details of your session. I look forward to meeting you and your family soon!

Better than I could have ever imagined. 

First you are welcomed unto her studio which is beautiful and clean. Next your newborn is taken through multiple different looks they are all perfect and catered to what you want. Lastly, the images that she produces make you so happy that you decided to get a newborn shoot. All in all, I couldn't recommend Melissa more to anyone considering a newborn shoot. You will not be disappointed.
