  • 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 am also the proud proprietor of The Print Shop, offering fine art prints with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Pajama Program.

    For more information about me, my documentary sessions or The Print Shop, grab a cup of coffee and read up. Be sure to visit the blog to see my recent work and new prints coming to the shop. Thank you for visiting!
