Welcome to Melanie Amparo Photography!

I’m Melanie! I specialize in photographing birth stories, newborns, and maternity.

Some fun facts about me:

  1. I’m married to my high school sweetheart. We started dating at 15 and got married at the courthouse at 23.
  2. I’m a mama to 3 beautiful children.
  3. I was a gymnast for over 10 years. My career ended with an ACL tear.
  4. I’m a slight perfectionist. I mean I use to have a plan for the way my life would play out and obviously it doesn’t always work out. So that’s where the “slight”  part comes in. I tend to be super critical and have always feared failure. I would make decisions based on whether or not I thought failing was possible.
  5. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology and a Master’s of Science in Public Health. Yet here I am, a photographer. Never in a million years did I think I would be a photographer. But truth is, I absolutely adore it. I love being able to be creative and telling people’s stories through images. 7 out of 10 times, it doesn’t feel like work.

As a photographer, my hope is to capture the quirky, fun, silly, true, genuine and real you. I appreciate simplicity over props and genuine interaction over forced smiles. I want to be able to tell your story with the real, raw moments so when you’re 80 you can look back and remember those moments just as they are.

I adore earth tones and have a moody, but natural and organic feel to my style. I am also always down for an adventure! Let’s climb to the top of a mountain, wander a wide open field, walk the shoreline or jump full-on into the water for your session!

Talk to ya soon!
