Hi there! I’m Melissa, a Charlottesville area photographer specializing in taking newborn photos at home. Your home, that is! I thought I would share a bit more about myself for those who are new! I’m a Virginia native and have been a photographer since 2008. With three little ones myself (two boys and a girl to be exact), I know the joy of finally meeting your baby. I also know how quickly those tiny newborn details change. Having newborn portraits in the comfort of your own home is a special way to document those first few days of your biggest adventure yet.
Whether you’re looking for newborn photos at home or family portraits at the beach, I would love to chat with you!
