I wanted Melissa to take photos for us because I had seen her work before and loved it.
Melissa’s photos are are bright, beautiful, make everyone look good. Her photos communicate joy too!
During the session, Melissa was confident in giving instruction, so we didn’t feel awkward not knowing what to do. Working with Melissa was very natural!
My favorite part really was the process and the product.
Before I worked with Melissa, I felt overwhelmed by choices when looking for someone to photograph my newborn son (and two twin boys!).
I chose Melissa because a coworker knew her personally and highly recommended Melissa not only for her photography skills but for her caring and compassionate nature. Melissa did not disappoint!
My favorite part of working with Melissa is the personal touch & family photos was fun with Melissa! She always makes me feel like each session is equally special, whether it’s the very 1st photo of the session or 1000th family mini session!
I’ve known Melissa for a long time, and know that she is passionate about photography. I had seen her work, and knew that she was extremely talented. She captured images of families that did not seem posed at all. They seemed authentic, and they were beautiful, and that’s what I was looking for.
Before I worked with Melissa I felt like it would still be hard to find someone that we could be comfortable with & be ourselves around with taking pictures. My son is the only one who really doesn’t mind being in front of the camera. My husband and I are not huge fans of it at all!
Melissa was so laid back and confident at the same time. She knows what she needs to get great photos, and she isn’t afraid to take charge of wrangling a toddler. She steps into the situation with the familiarity and comfort of a family member, and it is just extremely easy to work with her. She put all of us at ease right away.
Before I worked with Melissa I felt a little bit nervous because it was my first photo shoot! However, I had seen her work before and knew she was so talented!
My favorite part of the shoot was how down to earth she made us feel and how intentional she was through the whole process! She even asked for some of our favorite music to play throughout the shoot make sure we felt comfortable! (We listened to everything from Country to Cardi B – Haha!)
I would definitely recommend Melissa to others!
