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 appreciate 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, which is why I every print and album that leaves my studio is of the highest quality. 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!!
