stroy telling sessions


Being able to tell your story is an absolute honor. 

My story telling sessions are designed to capture and preserve all your precious memories that tell your family's story in the most beautiful way. 

I start each session with some posed images. This will give us a chance to connect and get you comfortable in front of the camera.

My hope is to then capture the quirky, fun, silly, true, genuine and real you. I yearn for you and your family to make new memories together and just be yourselves!And if you're feeling awkward, don't worry, I'll guide you with some fun prompts! 

My goal is to provide you with a gallery that will transport you back in time to heartfelt reactions, laughter and fun!


"VERY talented photographer. My husband gifted me a mini shoot with her for my first mothers day and I was so excited to get some pictures of our little girl but I am so awkward and have gained weight so was not feeling super confident that I would like any of the pictures with me in them lol. She was so fast getting them back to us and I was floored when I saw them! They were gorgeous and somehow she had made me look beautiful and it has been a long time since I've liked a photo of myself! Like I seriously do not know how she does it 😂 but thank you Melanie for giving me my confidence back and of course for adorable pictures of my little babe ❤"



"Melanie did a beautiful job on our family photos. She was super friendly and fun with my boys (who hate to get their pictures taken)... We are so happy with them that this is the first time my husband and I will be appearing on our holiday card. I highly recommend her."



"I had Melanie take family photos after a transitional period in life, and she captured the most amazing moments even with two crazy toddlers outdoors. She was able to get both posed and candid photos of my children (including both looking at the camera!) and help me to feel confident in front of a camera for the first time in years. I highly recommend Melanie for photos you'll feel great about and cherish for years to come!"

How does the booking process work?

I strive to make this process as simple as possible for you! After reaching out, I'll send you over a proposal with my different packages and pricing. There will also be an area to tell me a little more about your family and what you envision for your session. You'll select your package, sign your contract and submit your a 50% non-refundable retainer to book your session! And that's it!

Do you help me with styling?

Yes! I've partner with a styling system that will help you find the perfect family outfits! I also provide you with a styling guide to help make the process easier on you. 

How are my images delivered? 

I use an online gallery to deliver your high resolution photos. You will receive an email with your gallery link and a pin that is used to download the images to your computer. Once on your computer, you can print as you please.

How long does it take to get my images?

After your session takes place, I will send you a proofing gallery within 72 hours. You'll have 3 days to select your favorites! Once you select, I'll begin editing your images! A final gallery is expected within 10-14 business days after your selecting your favorites! 

Do you offer any discounts?

Although I understand working within a budget, my prices are based on my cost of doing business and cannot be discounted. You can save by booking multiple sessions though!
