About

Sweet Melissa Photography is owned by Melissa Lagano
I am a full time mother first and foremost. I also am a 3rd grade teacher and a wife to a man who I couldn’t do it all without. When my first son was born, I felt compelled to capture his fast and fleeting moments in photographs, which forced me to learn everything I could about a DSLR camera. While always having a passion for photography, it wasn’t until this time in my life that I was able to turn my passion into a hobby and now a career. I absolutely LOVE each and every aspect of photography, and I promise to put my heart in soul into each photograph I take of you and your loved ones.

My life changed when I found photography. I can’t stop. It feeds my soul to the most inner core of who I am.

I am a mother. I know what pregnancy feels like. I know the overwhelming love you have for your newborn baby, your toddler and your children. I get it. I get you.

I search for inspiration everywhere I go. I see the world through a frame.  I love light and ever since I became a photographer I have never looked at it the same.

Newborns get me e.v.e.r.y.t.i.m.e  They are irresistible. Having children is God’s greatest gift. I live my life through my sons’ eyes and they teache me something new everyday. I love to take naps and take one every chance I get. Even better if its in the warm sun. A scruffy guy with a guitar makes me speechless… just ask my husband, even he knows that. And speaking of my husband, he’s a great man. He does the grocery shopping and vacuuming. And he is an amazing father.  I live a quiet little life and I like it that way. In fact, I wish it were even quieter. That’s me.
