"Melissa has left us a lifetime of memories to look back on. We are longtime returning clients of just shy of a decade. She has watched our family grow both in front of and behind the lens. Never once was I disappointed by the quality or selection of photos/poses. A true professional with experience."
"Our family has worked with Melissa a few times now and I cannot say enough how wonderful our experiences have been with her. She is an absolute professional and her work is amazing! There are so many reasons I would recommend working with Melissa - she is so well organized and efficient and makes photo shoots easy and painless."
"Melissa has been wonderful to work with! She did both our wedding and newborn photos and was always so easy going, patient and accommodating. Melissa provides a relaxing environment and makes you feel comfortable. She has a beautiful studio with anything you would need while she handles your newborn with care!"
"We have been working with Melissa for the past 5 years to capture our family milestones. Melissa is an extremely talented photographer. With her attention to detail and patience, she captures the most beautiful photos to cherish for a lifetime. She is very easy to work with and her studio is stunning. We can't wait for Melissa to continue photographing our growing family."
"From the moment we reached out to inquire about a newborn shoot to the detailed emails regarding how to prepare for the session all the way to the day of, Melissa was so responsive to questions and completely professional, yet welcoming at the same time. She treats clients as I imagine she treats her friends ... like family."
"We thought that Melissa balanced perfectly between having a friendly attitude that helped put everyone at ease, and being focused and professional to make sure that we remained on schedule. Melissa helped us plan our event by asking the right questions and giving us the right amount of information, at the right time."
"Melissa photographed our wedding and she was phenomenal to work with. If her approachability and professionalism didn't already speak for itself, her photos were sheer proof of those qualities. She took what stress there was and turned it into a wonderful experience. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else there to capture those moments."
"Melissa has a warmth and gentle kindness about her that comes through in her photos. She asks thoughtful questions to personalize your sessions which allows her to deliver above expectations every time. Her patience with our children (and the adults too if we're honest) during the sessions helps put everyone at ease."
"If you have any ounce of awkwardness being in front of the camera, Melissa is your girl. I can't express how appreciative we were of her professional direction and laid-back attitude. She's the perfect combination of fun-friend and expert-professional."
"Melissa's studio is beautiful and spacious. She thought of everything you might want or need when spending time there for a photo shoot - especially a newborn one. She is extremely professional, and makes her clients feel comfortable and at ease. We can't imagine going to someone else."

If we ever had a question or concern, her responses were super fast - within minutes!. The day of the wedding Melissa was an absolute pleasure to work with."
"I would recommend Melissa because she is the real deal. I could trust her with my soul. I threw everything on her so last minute (for our wedding) and she took total control and initiative to make sure she caught the perfect moments despite the weather and stress. She's the boss!"
"Melissa is absolutely fantastic to work with. We have done newborn sessions for both of our children, and she was nothing but professional and welcoming. The photos were absolutely beautiful! If you choose to book Melissa you will not be disappointed, highly recommend!"
"We so appreciated Melissa's extremely prompt replies, and genuine care to get the best photos for our family. Melissa was so easy to work with, we instantly felt like we had just invited a friend into our home. We were so thankful for her willingness to include our sweet dog in the photos which was extremely important to us."

All you need to do is bring baby. My newborn session experience is full service. At my fully-equipped home studio, you will be able to sit back and relax while I capture the newness of your tiny bundle with timeless imagery. They are only this little for a little while.
These milestone sessions are a perfect way to celebrate baby's first birthday. We will begin with timeless baby portraits, then we will have fun smashing a cake (complete will fully custom backdrop), and we will finish with a warm bubble bath (usually baby's favourite part).
Your premium family session is designed with your family's needs in mind. Do you have small children, do you want to include your family dog, do you want an extended, multi-generational family session? I've got you covered. Leave all the details to me, I just want your family to have fun.
Captivating imagery that will make your business stand out! I will work with you to go over exactly what you are looking to achieve with your branding package, and we will make a plan to create exactly that. Professional content for websites, socials and marketing materials.
Art is intended to be displayed. You wouldn't go to your local HomeSense, find a painting you love, and then ask if they could sell you a digital copy of it to keep in a folder on your computer ... that would be ridiculous, right? You likely also wouldn't invest hundreds of dollars in beautiful content just to post on your social media for it to be buried and forgotten in feeds mere hours later. So then why do we do that with professional artwork of our most cherished memories and loved ones?
There are so many beautiful locations in Hamilton and surrounding areas that you can choose for your family session. You'll want to consider what type of backdrop you're looking for. Do you want nature with trees and flowers, do you want a waterfront, do you want more of an urban setting where you can grab some ice cream ... all are fantastic options, it's completely up to you.
When you come into my studio for a Newborn Session, I will take care of absolutely everything for you! I want your time spent here to be like a mini vacation. There are however a few things that you can do in the days leading up to the session to set us up for success and help me to get the most perfect images of your new little bundle.
Let me know what kind of session you're interested in and I'd be happy to send you some more information about the booking process and scheduling a consultation.
