ABOUT ME

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 15 years!) and we are blessed with two pretty awesome kiddos who keep us insanely busy! 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.
