Working with Melissa was a great experience. I was anxious, as I know that newborn sessions can be stressful and challenging, but Melissa made me feel so comfortable and free to move as my baby wanted. There was a lot of on-demand nursing happening, and Melissa was so patient and kind. She caught such intimate moments, and the incredibly beautiful photos are ones I will cherish forever. She captured us in a way that empowered me as a mother. 


Melissa has an absolute talent with the way she is able to capture emotion, moments in time & mood. I brought in a rambunctious two year old and she made the entire session effortless and fun. We were blown away by the photos & they are memories we will cherish forever.
