Melissa did an exceptional job taking the newborn and family photos for our twins boys, she was very attentive and patient especially with our 3 year old daughter. Our photos came out more beautiful than we could have ever hoped! She’s amazing and I cannot wait to get more photos from her. Thanks Melissa! 🙂

Melissa has been photographing our family for the last 6 years! She manages to capture the essence and personalities of our kids time after time. I treasure each and every image of our family from over the years and we look forward to preserving many more family moments as our children grow!

Melissa has been capturing our family memories for over 8 years.  From my last 2 pregnancies, their newborn photos, and our family photos almost every year. Melissa has a true gift for capturing those very special moments and precious times in your life. I absolutely love her work and cherish the photos she has taken of my 3 beautiful children and our family. Sometimes I know we wish we can make time stand still when our children our small and growing up. The photos Melissa has taken and that I have, I will cherish forever.  Thank you Melissa for making forever memories of our family.

Thankful Customer,

My husband and I first met Melissa in 2008 for our engagement picture shoot.  I wasn’t sure if the engagement session was necessary but was told it would allow us the opportunity to get to know our photographer prior to our wedding day.  We were so glad we ended up getting the engagement pictures.  Not only were they beautiful, but we instantly made a connection with Melissa and felt so comfortable in front of the camera thanks to her.  The shoot was so much fun and when it came time for our wedding it felt like we had known her forever!

Fast forward 7 years later and we were entering the next chapter in our lives.  It only made sense to reach out to Melissa to have her be part of welcoming our baby boy. Melissa captured beautiful images for our maternity shoot as well as our son’s newborn pictures.  Still adjusting to my new body & around 35 weeks into my pregnancy, Melissa managed to make me feel like a supermodel.  We instantly picked up right where we had left off and I felt unbelievably comfortable celebrating this beautiful chapter with my husband.  My son arrived 2 weeks early and when it came time for his newborn pictures Melissa was fantastic.  She was so sweet with him and again made us feel completely at ease with everything considering we had only been parents for 8 days.

Melissa has been a pleasure to work with from day one and is absolutely amazing at what she does.  We are so glad to have shared such special moments with her & look forward to doing so in the future.

Melissa has been taking pictures of our family every year for the past 4 years. When our daughter Chloe was born, Melissa came to our house and was so professional and genuine. She really knew what she was doing, took her time and had plenty of patience. After having 3 kids, we have learned how truly important those qualities are when taking pictures of babies and kids. Every year now we do family pictures to capture our family and children as they grow and I can’t say enough how important and special it is to have these gorgeous pictures taken by Melissa. Our children have also grown to feel comfortable with her since we use her consistently, which is so helpful. The softness and editing of the final photos really stands out vs. the many other photographer choices out there. We have had many friends and family tell us that our Christmas cards that we also order through Melissa, are the nicest cards they have ever received.

Melissa was a true pleasure to work with, not only did we receive EXCEPTIONALLY wonderful pictures from our session with her (we continually get the most compliments on her work when people see the photographs in our house), she made our session and time with her easy and fun.  With three little girls to manage, the investment involved, and the hopes for lovely images to be produced,  family photo sessions always stress me out.  But Melissa’s preparation, style,  and friendliness with the kids helped the session be stress-free and fun.  Even before meeting us she corresponded with me via email to learn more about my girls and what we hoped to get out of our session.  She thoughtfully and creatively suggested locations and arrangements for us during our session that resulted in fantastic shots.  I would be so happy to work with Melissa again on a family session and highly recommend her to anyone who would love to capture fun, creative, and memorable images of their family.

We have used Melissa Lyn Photography on three separate occasions and would not hesitate at all going with her again for future photo sessions. Our first experience with her was our maternity session which was amazing.  Melissa makes you feel more than comfortable during your shoot and takes her time with you.  Melissa then did a newborn session for our twins. Before the shoot, we were skeptical to get quality photos of two 3 1/2 week old infants that just lay there with no expressions and eyes closed. We were wrong. Melissa came to our house for our convenience. She provided props and outfits and had great layouts and positions that made for the most amazing photos of our babies. The session never felt rushed. Melissa and her assistant spent the time needed to capture great moments.

Our next experience with Melissa was a family session. We wondered how our photo session would go with our twins now being 2 years old and also throwing two energetic dogs into the shoot. Melissa and her assistant made this experience as great as our first shoot. Props were provided to make each shot special and beautiful. She was very thorough and captured so many great moments. Even when our twins were “over it”, she took out candy, which brought the smiles out again.

During our photo shoots, Melissa had quality equipment with various camera lens’ for different shots. She also provided a heater for the newborn session, to keep our babies warm during their shoot. The quality of equipment can be seen in the quality of the photos. Every picture is very crisp and has great lighting. And she doesn’t stop there. The photo editing is amazing and all the colors look beautiful. We’ve had great experiences with Melissa Lyn Photography and look forward to her capturing future memories for us.

Melissa is one amazing photog!! Our first session with Melissa was when I was pregnant with my son. 7 years later with 2 more babies added to the family, Melissa has been our photographer ever since. She is amazing with babies, toddlers and children and always captures the the most adorable and precious moments of all my babies,(even when they were not acting so cute) she has great patience and knows how to work with the children to get the great pictures. Her studio is amazing and perfect for the sweet babies. She takes as long as the babies need to get the best shots! Her outfits and props are by far the cutest! Melissa has captured amazing family memories for our family, I am like kid on Christmas morning when her our order arrives at my door. I can’t wait to get the box open! Melissa has an amazing talent in photography and and never disappoints!!
