I'm a traveling newborn, children, and family photographer, living in Surprise, Arizona. No, I didn't just make that name up, it's a real city! I love it here, and it's only about forty-five minutes west of Phoenix. (You can ask Siri or Alexa about it later.)
With a husband who doesn't work the normal 9-5 job, four energetic kids, plus two four-legged fur babies, I understand how crazy life can be. However, I know life won't always be crazy, kids won't always be little, and there's always more weight we want to lose.
So, take those pictures. Get in front of the camera. And don't stress! I'm here to help you every step of the way. From planning outfits, to finding you the perfect location. I'm here for you! Let's do this!
I’m in love with the newborn shots she took of both my kids. She’s great to work with and genuinely loves capturing great memories for her clients to cherish. We’ll be coming back for family portraits.
I absolutely loved everything about my newborn session! Melissa went above and beyond my expectations! She was perfect with my little guy and gave me the most precious keepsakes to remember this time of his life. She listened to what I wanted and made it happen, what more could you ask for.
Best photographer we've ever had. She was incredibly in tune with my three girls. By the end, my youngest, who never hugs anyone, wouldn't let go of her leg she had her arms wrapped around. It was quick, painless and exactly what we asked for and beyond what we'd hoped for. We will be back for another session, without a doubt.
Melissa is hands down our go-to photographer for all our family photos and more. She’s wonderful to work with, super patient with all our furry family members, & even the two legged family members who can’t wait for family photos to be over (lol). We can’t say enough good things about her talent, professionalism, and great personality.
Melissa took my daughter's newborn photos and I was blown away by her talent. Her work was better than I could have imagined. She is so friendly and very soothing to my baby and patient with my 6 year old son. She takes her time and works magic with little ones.
