Hi! I'm from a small town in Eastern Oregon. I'm a farmer's wife, mom to two amazing kids and a maternity, newborn, child and family photographer. Photographing newborns is my favorite! My studio is perfectly set up for newborn, baby and child photography. I photograph between 12-18 clients a month. I'm thankful that I get to do what I love! <3
"Melissa just recently did our newborn and sibling pictures and even though I have only seen two of the photos from our session so far, I am beyond thrilled and pleased with her and her work. She treated my children so kindly and I did not have one moment where I felt nervous handing her my 6 day old son. She handled him with such care and really took her time with him. We had to stop multiple times to feed him and change him and she was so patient and understanding. I highly highly recommend her and cannot stress enough how talented she is at what she does."
"Melissa was SO amazing for our newborn shoot! She is so comfortable handling baby and getting these sweet poses. Even with my little one being less than cooperative, she was beyond patient and just rolled with it :) Can't wait for another shoot!!! Pictures totally exceeded my expectations!"
"She did my son's newborn pictures this morning and she does such a wonderful job! Even through all his fussing and peeing, haha! She was so patient and gentle! She has so many great props and ideas also! We will defiantly be returning ! Thanks Melissa!"
"Had such an awesome experience with Melissa during our newborn session! Not only does she capture such beautiful moments but her calming nature and patience with our baby was beyond impressive!"
"Melissa did my daughters adoption photos and story, beautiful and moving."
