"Melissa is, hands down, the best photographer we have EVER worked with! She is so patient and fun, and delivers the most beautiful, dreamy photos. there is no one I would trust more to keep your precious milestones and moments living on forever!"
Whether you’re a new mom or a seasoned parent, I want to document this moment for you so you can sit side-by-side on the couch one day looking through their baby album reliving how tiny they once were.
It starts with your maternity session in or around Miami. I see how crazy in love you and your spouse are ready to become parents. The huge smiles that break out across your faces when you feel the baby kick! I know for many of you it's been a journey to get to this point and I'm so excited to capture your happiness and that beautiful pregnancy glow you have!
Once baby has arrived it's time for your at home lifestyle newborn photos! I know what it's like to feel like you still look pregnant and a photoshoot is sometimes the last thing you want to do, but your newborn is only going to be this tiny for about 10 days. That baby is going to change so much so quickly. By the time you even get the photos delivered, you’ll wonder where your squishy little newborn went. I don’t think I need to remind you, but I will anyway...this brand new teeny tiny baby will be walking in about a year.
Year after year during your Miami family photo session, I want your kids to be excited to see Miss Melissa again. Plus your husband knows photos with me really aren't all that bad! I'm excited knowing you’ll have another beautiful piece of art to hang in your home that flows with your style.
That’s why I have a membership option so you can make one decision and be ready to go. From baby bumps to the cake smash to family photos on Miami beach, I want to be there. No stuffy studio sessions. No crazy props or poses. Just joyful, natural, relaxed pictures of you and your family enjoying time together.
