I know it’s a made up holiday, but I really do love Valentine’s and everything that goes with it.  Those who know me will attest to the fact that there isn’t anything pink, frilly, or girly going on in my life in a normal day.  Valentine’s day is different.  One day a year, I turn into a huge romantic and love everything that has to do with…well, love.  Bring on the frilly.  Bring on the pink.  Bring on the chalky conversation hearts.  I’ll probably still be dressed in black and grey, but for one day, my studio will be something other than the simple white we all know and love.  I blame Target and Homegoods.  Who’s in?  Here are the details:


Date:  Saturday February 4, 2017

Time: 10am to 2pm

Location: My studio (94 and Vandalia)

Cost: $250.  includes 5 digital files for personal printing, plus a complimentary app of ALL your watermarked images (typically 8-12) to share with friends and family.  I will also have cookies.  Possibly heart shaped.  Definitely sugary (sorry not sorry).


These 20 minute sessions will be short and sweet (see what I did there?).  Two or three different setups to choose from.  Clothing that would go good with these sets should be white, cream, grey, khaki, light pink…possibly brown/navy with some red.  I have some GORGEOUS girls dresses available at the studio in various sizes, and I’m always available to help with wardrobe choices, too.

Sessions will be scheduled every 30 minutes.  Please click the contact tab above, or email me at info@melissakleinphotography.com to reserve your spot.

Meet Kellen.  His mom and dad hired me to photograph his newborn session when they were looking for a Plymouth MN newborn photographer, and I’m so glad they did!  This little guy was a total dream to work with.  He was sleepy and snuggly for his entire session, and pretty much let me pose him however I wanted.  One of my favorite and quickest newborn sessions to date.  And to top it off, they brought their fur babies with, too!  After all, dogs are a big part of the family, and they made for one of my favorite family portraits ever taken.  🙂
