Once a date is chosen and booked, we will customize your upcoming session during a phone or in person studio consultation. We will discuss and view my carefully curated prop collection, backdrop and costume color preferences, as well as view my thoughtfully chosen client closet of maternity dresses, precious newborn gowns, clothes, bonnets, and hats.  

When you become my client, you will be taken care of. From the professionally appointed studio, to my cozy client sitting room, my goal is to make your session experience as comfortable as I can. Maternity sessions last about one hour. Newborn sessions last between 2 and 3 hours, during which time you may relax, snack and entertain any siblings with soft toys or floor play provided for in the client sitting area. 

We will meet the following week for your viewing and ordering appointment. Together we will view all of the beautiful portraits we created during your session. I will assist you in the process of choosing the right portraits for your wall art, your album, and your prints. I cannot wait to work with you!


Third, choosing your artwork at the viewing appointment. We meet approximately a week after the session to view the beautiful photos we created. It's the best part! 


Second, the session! Maternity sessions are recommended during 28-32 weeks and can be done in studio or on location. Newborn sessions take place in studio when baby is 10-14 days old.


First, choose your session, contact me and book to secure your spot. It's best to reserve your spot during your second trimester. This secures your due date on my calendar.

"Melissa is amazing. She did our maternity and newborn photos and they turned out wonderful. We live almost 2 hours from the studio but I will be using her for all my photo needs!"
