This session is incredibly personal and I am just bursting to share it! This last Mother's Day my husband and I got a wonderful gift and surprise... We found out that we would soon be Grandparents! When my step-son and daughter-in-law told us we were ecstatic... little did we know that we would soon be sharing some similar news with them a couple of months later. Yes, we found out that I am also expecting. Much like a made for t.v. movie I will have not only a new grandson but also a daughter born within a month of each other.
I made Alicia promise to have maternity pictures taken- even if it wasn't by me (they live in Los Angeles). I think it's such an amazing time in one's life, and you really need to make sure to have pictures that you can look back on and share with your kids. When they came to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with us we went out and shot these. I will be forever grateful that I got to share this time with the two of them. And I can't wait to meet their little boy!

It's been an amazing year for my little photography business. To my clients, thank you for letting me capture your memories! You have allowed my to bring my dream to life and for that I am forever grateful. Here is a selection of some of my favorites... coming soon will be The Best of 2013- part two with my personal favorites for the year.
Baby bumps are beautiful, at least to me they are. The miracle of a new life growing inside amazes me. There is also something about the mother as well, their beauty multiplies. I've known Liz and Mitch for five years now and they are basically family. Getting to capture the two of them before the arrival of their little girl was so special to me. We had lots of fun and I think it's pretty apparent in the photos how much these two love each other and how much they already love their little girl. Many thanks to the two of them for letting me be a part of it.
Hi, I'm Melissa. I am a wife, mother, step-mother, Gigi (step-grandma) and a photographer. I started out as the family member always asked to bring my camera along and it has turned into my life dream. I just love being able to capture moments for others that they can always cherish.This is my little corner to share my sessions, projects, and a little piece of our daily life. Thanks for stopping by!
