Most days you can find me balancing between running my business and chasing after my 3 little ones! My daily uniform consists of jeans and a messy bun! I'm obsessed with working out at F45 but counteract that with my love of chocolate and ice cream. 

As a mother myself, I understand just how much those first few years of motherhood are a blur. You're running off of caffeine, while time is just slipping away.   

My goal is to help you capture every one of your babe's milestones- from your baby’s arrival earthside and throughout your little one's first year of life! . 
I am a firm believer in not only capturing every moment in life, but having those memories to share with others. I'd love to be your newborn and baby photographer.

I am super excited to hear from you, so let's chat!


artist / photographer / professional baby snuggler

I'm melanie


was once a city girl that was whisked away into small-town living. I am originally from Philly, then spent 10 years of my life in Maryland and now planting our forever roots in the Tampa Bay Area! I absolutely love the beach and dream of owning a little home on the beach one day! 


Say Hello »

hey there!


My husband and I have been dating since we were 15 years old! We got married at 21 and have been dating each other ever since! We make it a point to go out, just us, at least once a month. 

We have 3 little babes- Noah, Isabela, and Luca. Noah keeps me on my toes with his intelligence. Isa, is me sweet, fierce, rainbow baby. Luca, is our happy surprise ending. 


I much rather bake than cook.

I love making my own breads, cakes, and cookies. And as much as I love baking, it doesn't suit my figure too well, so I don't do it as often as I like. 


I grew up as a gymnast so I spent a lot of time in the gym. This has translated to my current life. I love being outdoors and being active. 

I much rather lift weights than go for a run. 

I absolutely love F45. I've been going for a little over 2 years and never get bored.

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!
