Hi there. I am Melanie, a freelance photographer who loves kids, animals, nature and traveling - capturing every experience with my camera. I am also a wife, step-mom, and Nana. My husband and I have 1 cat and a very rambunctious 18-month old lab/shepherd mix, named Marlowe!
I love going barefoot any chance I get. I love laughter, especially a baby's laughter. I love big puffy white clouds against a bright blue sky, being outside in the fresh air, and I love chips and salsa. In my spare time, I enjoy decorating and creating warm and inviting spaces in our home.
I am down to earth, patient, compassionate, and I have always had a heart for working with kids with and without special needs. I want the photo experience to be a happy one; my sessions are filled with lots of fun and laughter. Sessions are done outdoors, using nature or buildings as my backdrop. If your child is unable to be outside because of special needs, I am happy to photograph them in your home, using natural light. My goal is to capture your child’s authentic personality by using a candid approach; no posing, forced smiles, or kids saying “cheese".
I would love to work with your child and capture their story. To get started, please click on the "Contact" link.
