“Amazing, gorgeous heirloom quality photos!  Melissa made our shoot stress-free with her calming, easy going personality and hand-picked elegant wardrobe. It was fun, felt natural and she gave direction in a way that made sense even to our small children, plus she captured everyone so beautifully.  I could not ask for a better set of photos that will no doubt be of great value  to my family for the rest of our lives.  I have to say, her editing skills are superb and unique.  Editing no doubt is a skill that not every photographer masters the way that Melissa does, and she works in natural light!  We will definitely hire her artistic talent again in the future!”  – Cheryl

“The fine art deckled print arrived today and made me cry.  What a sweet mama moment!  It instantly transports me to what it feels like to hold him, how heavy he is, what he smells like, what his face looks like looking up…”  – Cristen
