Photography allows us to preserve precious pockets of time before they leave us forever. A moment captured in a photograph stays with us and often becomes irreplaceable in the future.

CAPTURING

LIFE'S LITTLE

MOMENTS

FINE ART MATERNITY, NEWBORN, CHILD & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

Hi, I’m MELISSA

As a mother myself, I know how important it is to capture life's fleeting moments. From finding the perfect location full of magical light to advising you on what you and your children should wear, my goal is to create heirloom memories of your family that you will treasure now, and that your grandchildren will hold dear, a generation from now.

My photography style reflects my personality - its bright, organic, whimsical, and thoughtful. Fairy tales, flea markets, and mother nature are all at the core of my inspiration. You will never hear me utter the words, "say cheese." Forget forced smiles and poses, I embrace the real, raw, and natural expressions. My passion is to capture personality, not manufacture it.
