what they’re saying

“She caught such intimate moments, and the incredibly beautiful photos are ones I will cherish forever. She captured us in a way that empowered me as a mother”.


I’m not sure how Melissa could turn simple everyday moments into pure magic, but she did. Her calm demeanor made it so easy to work with her. Melissa has this energy about her that makes you feel so comfortable and confident”.


your questions

I generally book 6-8 weeks out, though sometimes have some last minute openings. Reach out to inquire! Birth sessions are extremely limited. I would recommend reaching out at least 5 months before your due date.

There are tons of amazing artists to choose from so it ultimately comes down to your style & preferences. If you love a more moody, fine art, & vintage vibe, then we will have an awesome time together!

Pricing can vary. Please visit the pricing page to find out more.

I mainly work in Southern Maryland, Annapolis, Baltimore, & Washington DC – However, I do travel! We can plan a session at a location of your choice, including your home, an outdoor location, or a styled home rental/studio near you. Rental fees may apply for an alternate location.

I only share images with your explicit, written permission. No one will see your images before you do.
