Meet MELANIE

artist / photographer / professional baby snuggler

I'm Melanie! 

I'm married to my high school sweetheart and a mama to 2 beautiful babies! I have a wild, free-spirited, and adventurous 5 year old boy and a joyful, loving 8 month old rainbow baby ! I thrive off of minimalism but can never have enough plants! I'm a slight perfectionist and a huge introvert! 

I absolutely adore snuggling and documenting those fresh new babies.
