  • hello & welcome!
  • Hello, my name is Melissa, and I am a "retired" lawyer turned documentary newborn and family photographer. True story! I traded my briefcase and power heels for a camera bag and sensible-yet-cute flats, all for the chance to photograph authentic stories of life, love, and laughter. I'm also a teacher and shop owner! Cameras + Coffee offers one-one-one and small group classes for photographers of all levels. I am also the proprietor of The Print Shop, offering fine art prints with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Pajama Program.

    For more information about me, grab a cup of coffee and read up. Be sure to visit the blog to see my recent work and news from my headquarters (i.e. my home office). Click on the shop link to purchase fine art prints and classes. Thank you for visiting!
