WELCOME!

I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Melissa, your Temecula portrait photographer. My specialty and passion is documenting maternity, newborn, baby and family portraits. My mission is to deliver heart stopping images of you and your loved ones together that you will treasure for a lifetime. Images that you will look back on years from now that will put a smile on your face, bring tears to your eyes and fill your heart with joy remembering that special milestone we captured together. I know that preserving your family memories is so important. My goal is for you to walk away with some sort of artwork in your hands after your session. An heirloom piece that your family will treasure forever and can be passed down for generations. Let me create something that you will treasure forever.

"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!"

"The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.”
– Andy Warhol

PRICING

I totally know the haze new parents are in during the first week with their brand new baby, and the stress Mamas have over trying to figure out what everyone will wear for the session or trying to get Dad on board for taking those dreaded photos. I get it. I am a full service portrait photographer and I’m here to help every step of the way. Freaking out over wardrobe? No worries – I got you! An empty wall in your home that is begging for artwork? I can custom design something specific for YOUR walls. And I promise your hubby that your session will be painless  (and he will actually have FUN).

"She is amazing with babies, toddlers, and children, and always captures the most adorable and precious moments of all my babies!"

"What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce."
- Karl Lagerfeld
