am married to my high school sweetheart and a mama to 3 beautiful babies! I have a free-spirited, and adventurous 6 year old boy, a wild and mischievous 2 year old rainbow baby, and a sweet 8-month boy!
I thrive off of minimalism but can never have enough plants! I'm a slight perfectionist and a huge introvert! This drives my love for those perfectly curated and posed newborns! I promise to always care for your baby as if it were mine!

ABSOLUTELY LOVED MELANIE!!!
My newborn pictures turned out way better than what I envisioned!! Her eye for detail and just all around creative mindset produced some of the best pictures I’ve seen! And not just mine, her whole portfolio is fantastic! I will definitely use Melanie for all family pictures from here on out ! If you’re looking for someone to capture the best part of your life, Mel is your girl ! I promise you, you won’t regret it !
Melanie was nothing short of amazing. From the first interaction to shoot day. As a new mom I was a bit overwhelmed about, well you know, everything. But Melanie made this experience less stressful. She had everything sanitized and prepared prior to our arrival and assisted with outfit changes (which can be a bit much at times). This was such a huge help. Not to mention her turnaround time was quicker than any other photographer I've worked with in the area. The photos were perfect. 10/10 highly recommend. If you're thinking of using Melanie go for it! You won't regret.
I highly recommend Melanie Amparo Photography! Everyone tells you that your baby will grow so fast & you won’t remember them being so tiny, so it was important to me to get photos of my daughter to preserve her sweet, petite size in a special way. Melanie was able to accomplish that and exceed my expectations. Her style of photography is completely stunning. She is incredibly patient & took her time capturing the perfect images and expressions of our girl. I can’t say enough great things about Melanie & her photography. I will absolutely be using her in the future!
