Welcome and thanks for stopping by! My name is Melissa and I am a lifestyle photographer serving the greater Hartford and Farmington Valley area in CT. I specialize in newborn photography but I also offer maternity, family and boudoir sessions as well!
When booking a session with me, do not expect the traditional, "say cheese" type of images. Instead, my goal is to document the raw emotions of you an your loved ones through candid style photography. Please book your newborn session while you are still pregnant to ensure availability.
Summer is a beautiful time for a family session. While I just LOVE family photo sessions in the fall, that can be a busy time of year for us, given its back to school time. With summer comes a sense of relaxation and a perception of a carefree timeline. Once fall hits, my schedule gets extremely tight as well. I do have some limited summer sessions left, but time is running out. Contact me soon to book your family session: contact Melissa
When was the last time you had your family’s photos take by a professional photographer? It’s absolutely something you should do each and every year. If not, at least every few years. Your kids grow so fast and your love and family changes in many ways too! I love helping families pick out their wardrobe as we discuss their session beforehand. The planning for the big day is so fun, but the session itself is that much more fun, as we will sing, run, laugh, play snuggle and just be. There are no phones to distract you. No homework or baseball practice. Just about an hour in a field at sunset. To be with your family. Uninterrupted.
This sweet little family of three is just so in love with their 6 month old baby girl and their love for her and each other just radiates through these images. Mom and dad were just beaming at each and every little thing their baby did. And how can you not? Just look at her! Bri and Rob came to me for their maternity session last summer as well as their newborn session in September. It’s always such an honor to have clients come back to you again and again. Thank you!
If you are interested in booking a family session this year, do not wait much longer. I am almost fully booked for summer and I have a few remaining spots left for the fall. Contact me here to discuss booking a session!
