if you want to feel comfortable and have FUN while capturing this season in life

then you are in the right place

hi there, i'm

everybody deserves beautiful photos

my mission is to give you the best experience in the process

I spend my days with my fiancé and my two golden retrievers, Lillian and Henry – they are my entire world!

We are always in the kitchen or on the grill making something yummy!

My biggest fear is dark bodies of water – no really, I fell in a river once and have never been the same! Lol

I know firsthand how intimidating it can be to have your pictures taken..  which is why my main goal is to make sure you are comfortable and having fun during our time together.

Your session will feel like a date night that I just so happen to be the third wheel on! I will literally do cartwheels if that means it will make your experience with me the best. ;)

Come as you are, whoever that is. 

and I will capture your connection

learn about the experience

notes from my past clients,

"My fiancé and I have done two sessions now with Melanie and we are beyond happy with how the pictures turned out! She always picks the most beautiful locations to shoot at and seems to capture every perfect moment. She is the sweetest person and really makes you feel comfortable especially since things like this can tend to be a little awkward. I’ve already hired her for my wedding this coming March and I cannot wait to see all of the beautiful moments that she captures. Thanks Melanie!"
