Hi, I’m Melissa!  I’m a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend and a photographer of custom portraits.  I LOVE capturing moments Those fleeting moments that will be gone in a few years as your child ages.  I want to capture that quirky smile, the missing front teeth, the way your baby’s head fits in the crook of your neck.  These are the memories that will be forever embedded in your heart – I want to put them on your walls, too.   I want you to smile each day as you walk by them and remember the little things.

I started my professional photography career in 2006. While I started with photographing weddings, I chose to specialize in newborns, babies and children in 2010.  I love getting to know the children I photograph.  During your custom child session, you can expect lots of laughing, smiling, dancing and maybe even a game of chase or hide-and-seek.  After all, children show their true personality when they don’t feel pressured or stressed.  Newborn sessions take place in my Austin, Texas studio.  There are plenty of comfy seats, snacks and drinks for you to relax while I snuggle your precious baby and take his/her portraits.  With over 40 hours of newborn safety training, you can rest assured that your sweet baby is safe in my arms.  

Have something unique you want to do?  Contact me!  I LOVE to customize sessions for my clients to create a truly unique experience.  I can’t wait to meet you!

Melissa offers newborn, baby and children portraits in Austin, TX, Dripping Springs, TX and the surrounding areas.
