EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

The reason I got into photography was because my belly was swelling with a new human inside of it. I got my first DSLR when I was pregnant with my first daughter, over six years ago now. I wanted to document her life on something better than a cell phone camera. I imagine as a parent-to-be, you might be wanting the same for your new baby too.

Children are our most important work and as a mom whose been there, it really does go by so fast. While I can't actually make time slow down, I take pride in being able to freeze the precious details you will grow to love about your new baby so much. They truly are only this little once. 

With a full service in-home studio in Charlottesville, MSP documents newborns and children through their first year and beyond in a classic, timeless way.

PHILOSOPHY

Julie V.

Melissa is simply amazing. Best decision ever! She responds to emails quickly and was able to help me narrow down a location to take the photos. She's patient and thoughtful and spent the extra time to get the perfect shots and not just images that could be fixed later. I am so happy with the session and look forward to working with Melissa in the future.

"She's patient and thoughtful"

Melissa was amazing to work with for our newborn session. From the time I was first in contact with her, to months after our shoot, I felt I had known Melissa for years. Her personable touch was seen through her pictures as well. She clearly loves it and her passion shines through in her studio.  Her pictures will be treasured for years to come! She is amazing at what she does!

"She is amazing at what she does!"

Melissa is a very talented and kind hearted photographer. She spent enough time with us and was very caring and understanding since we booked the session and also during the session. She knows how to handle a new baby to take the best shots and also make sure baby is safe and comfortable.
