There is no better investment than the ability to freeze time and document one of the biggest moments of your child's life. They only turn one once! Choose to document this moment so that you can cherish these memories for the rest of your life.
TURNING ONE IS A BIG DEAL TO ME, TOO.
Real babies. Cherished Memories.
I bought this dress in hopes of brining a little girl in to the studio to celebrate her birthday with her! When I saw Milana, I knew it was perfect for her cake smash session!
Mom was laid back and left all the planning up to me! I chose to go with a neutral, mustard and rust for her cake smash! They blended together so well!

Santana was born at the height of COVID. Because of this, he missed out on documenting the first few months of his life!
Mom reached out and wanted to make sure we documented his first birthday for him! Mom loved rust so I decided to add in a neutral and sage.
Adorable little man
Mom absolutely loved neutrals and sunflowers. I was able to find the perfect dress for Rosemary that incorporated both.
And then what better way to wrap it all up but to add in yellow and sage!
We also ended the session with some family portraits to commemorate a whole year of nursing Miss Rosemary.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED MELANIE!!!
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!
