Hi! I’m Melissa, a total night owl who lives in leggings 99.9% of the time, loves wine, trying new recipes and surrounding myself with family and good friends. I am married to the most amazing man on the planet (for almost 17 years!) and we are blessed with two pretty awesome kiddos who keep us insanely busy and the most adorable golden pup named Bear. I started my photography journey in Orange County 20 years ago (yes, that’s correct. I did just age myself pretty good!) photographing weddings, family and children. About halfway into my career, I realized that my heart was in portraits and I wanted to focus on capturing a brand new life and the connections that came along with it.
There is nothing more precious than a new baby and the joy it brings to a family. I’d love to be the one to capture all of the important milestones for your family from pregnancy to your baby’s very first portraits and beyond.
