St Paul MN newborn photographer




Hi!  I’m Melissa Klein, owner and photographer (and editor, and blogger, and book keeper, and awkward hugger) at Melissa Klein Photography in St. Paul, Minnesota.   Aside from being a professional photographer for the past eight years, I’m also a flip flop and hoodie wearing daydreamer who’s hair color changes on a weekly basis (currently lavender grey).  I’m a mom of two kids who are growing up way too fast.  I’m a rescue dog owner of two Siberian huskies.  I’m an extroverted introvert who loves live music, hockey, nature and office supplies.


I love nice things, and I love to create nice things.   I’m not fancy by any means, but I do love a beautiful, quality made product.  This translates well to my clients and how I can help you.  I want you to have an amazing session that results in images that you will cherish for a lifetime.  I want you to be able to enjoy these images today, tomorrow, and years from now.  I want you to be able to look at a portrait on the wall, or page through an album and instantly be reminded of this point in your life.


I am a current member of the PPA (Professional Photographers of America), CM Pro and a recipient of the Reader’s Choice Award for  best photographer in the Blaine/Spring Lake Park area.  I also recently found out that I was voted as one of the best maternity photographers in Minneapolis.  Pretty exciting!  I’m honored, and I have nobody to thank but my awesome,  amazing clients.  THANK YOU!!
