Displaying Your Art

Watch Me Grow sessions take place in the studio and includes two backdrops/outfit changes. In addition to capturing your moments and creating tangible artwork for you to cherish forever, providing exceptional customer service and an impeccable personal experience for every client is a priority to Melissa. She is available to help every step of the way to ensure your experience is second to none!

Get ready for a fun photoshoot that captures your babys true personality.  We'll delve deep into your ideas and expectations, and together, we'll transform your vision into a mesmerizing reality!

Prior to your session, you and Melissa will have a consultation to discuss your style, color and pose preferences. Clients have full access to hundreds of Melissa’s newborn outfits, sitter outfits props, blankets, etc. 

Baby is hitting a milestone and its time for a portrait session! Melissa will photograph your baby in a variety of poses and setups. Parent/sibling poses are welcomed and highly encouraged. Milestone sessions are best done at 6months, 9 months and 1 year. Inquire about scheduling two sessions together to save.

About seven days  after your session, you’ll meet with Melissa to view your images and make all of your final selections. Approximately 2 weeks after placing your order, wall art and albums will be complete and ready to be displayed in your home!

Our studio offers high-quality archival matted prints, stunning fine-art albums and elegant acrylic wall art for a spectacular presentation of your most beautiful memories.

with Melissa to chat more about the process and see if you are a good fit for each other. While she does leave some flexibility for last minute bookings, Melissa is often booked months in advance and recommends reserving your date as early as possible to ensure dates are available.

"Melissa has photographed our newborns twice and our family various times. We have been extremely pleased with her photos, patience with our children, and friendliness.  We will continue to utilize her services again and again!"
