Welcome to your new favorite Orlando Family Photographer's website... (or I hope so anyway !)
How much are YOUR memories worth?
To me everything, but everyone values different things differently. If you are like me, booking a professional family photographer to capture beautiful, timeless family pictures are priceless and remind me of those special, fleeting moments spent with the ones I love. Whether it be for a maternity photoshoot for a growing family, a newborn session or a family photoshoot, these are all memories to look back on for years to come.
capturing the small moments
Melissa is THE photogragrapher who has taken the pictures of all our most precious family moments over the last 10 years. She captured the perfect moments and emotions of my pregnancies, the kids' births, their baptisms, birthdays and our family gatherings. She's kind, fun and discreet at the same time. I can't thank her enough and can't wait for our next sessions together!

Melissa was an amazing photographer and person to work with for our family photoshoot. We were traveling from out of state, so planning was key. Melissa was responsive and ready to be flexible with our travel plans. During our shoot, she immediately fit right in with out family dynamic and understood who needed the most attention! She managed our 3 children (11, 9, 7) perfectly and moved quickly to help avoid any meltdowns. We started with a photographer and ended with a friend who I hope to hire again when we revisit the area.

I met Melissa in France 6 years ago, I had contacted her for a family photo session at home. She know how to put us at ease and in confidence, which is not always obvious when we find ourselves in front of a lens. Melissa knew how to capture those moments of love, joy and simplicity in her photos. It is from this moment, that she became our family's photographer.... Mother/daughter photos, pregnancy, birth, baptisms, family, Christmas, friends... I left it to her to immortalize these moments, so important in life. We will now wait once a year for her return to France to continue our family albums!

Our session with Melissa was amazing! She is incredibly professional and knowledgeable. I am a perfectionist about family photos and her photos did not disappoint! When Melissa told me they we ready to view we could hardly wait! I had tears in my eyes as we viewed the photos that captured our family and personalities perfectly! The experience we had with her was effortless. Her communication both before, during and after the session was great! Any questions or concerns I had were answered quickly. Melissa is the only photographer I want capture our family from now on. I will highly recommend her to anyone with or without kids.

What KINd of PHOTOGRAPHER ARE YOU?
The outgoing kind of photographer :) but that's beside the point. Among the different specialities of other photographers, I am above all a family photographer. I capture authentic moments for your family "just because" or for all of your important milestones. Want to keep those special memories during your pregnancy, I do maternity photos. And when baby gets here I will capture your newborn pictures.
WHERE DO YOU USUALLY SHOOT YOUR SESSIONS ?
I am an Orlando family photographer, most of my photoshoots are in the Greater Orlando FL area, and Central Florida. My local families are often located in Winter Park, Lake Nona, Winter Garden, Windermere, Celebration, Clermont. My families on vacation usually stay in resorts or rentals on Disney property in Lake Buena Vista, Kissimmee or the Doctor Phillips area. This being said if you want a beach session at Cocoa Beach or Clearwater that is totally possible also.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY ?
I am lifestyle family photographer and visual storyteller through your family portraits, maternity and newborn photos! I want to capture authentic moments, real-life situations with the pictures I take. I am experienced in intimate in-home photography and do not get scared off by a lively home. Yes, you will have some great family shots where everyone is looking at the camera, but you will also have the best photos of situations that didn't go to plan! That's what I love! That's what I aim for! I look for emotion, the feelings that you share with the world when you look at each other or hold each other!
