the experience

It starts with an in-person consultation

"How do I find the right photographer?"
It's a tough question to answer when you might not know a lot about photography to begin with. This is why I invite you into my studio to have this conversation, to tell you about the experience I provide my clients and answer any questions you might have.
Also, I know how stressful it can be to coordinate photos—there are outfits to choose, a location, and so many expectations to live up to, right?
Take a deep breath, because I’m here to help. When you choose your session date, you'll receive access to my styling coordination questionnaire. This is a very simple process that literally takes the headache out of, "What in the world do we wear?" "How do I know we're going to look good collectively as a group?"
 We will decide on a general style you’re looking for and the color schemes you like, and you will be able to see photographer-approved outfits for you to compare side-by-side. I will also walk you through ideas for incorporating your finished images into your home as artwork (wall art and other printed keepsakes). If you’re hoping to download your files, throw a few on Facebook and then put them in a drawer somewhere never to be seen again, I’m just not the photographer for you, my dear.

Newborn Clara Mae

I highly recommend Melissa! We could not be happier with how our newborn session went. We are first time parents and were nervous about how our baby would be for the shoot but Melissa helped put us at ease and she is basically a baby whisperer. I was so impressed with how she was able to pose and maneuver our baby while she was sleeping and capture the most beautiful images. Thank you, Melissa!
