artist / photographer / professional baby snuggler

I'm Melanie! 

I'm 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 1 year old rainbow baby, and a sweet newborn 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!
