Creating Beautiful Images of Gorgeous Women That Deserve to Feel Like Queens
Hi! I'm the owner and artist behind the camera, and I'm so glad you're here! If you want to feel like a princess for an evening, you're in the right place! My photography experience dates back to 2003, but it wasn't until 2021 that I made the decision to focus purely on expecting mommas. Now I'm proud to call myself a NOVA maternity photographer. My husband and I grew up in Manassas and are now happy to call Burke our home, where we live with our beautiful daughter and our dog.
I've found my passion in helping moms-to-be look and feel amazing in front of my camera, and I can't wait to talk to you! I look forward to getting to know more about you and your story.
Hey, I'm Melissa
"This is my third pregnancy and I never had formal maternity photos done before....and I really regretted it. Melissa was so kind and personable to work with! Pregnancy is a vulnerable time in a woman's life, and she allowed me to look and feel beautiful when I felt the complete opposite. I will forever cherish the photos she was able to capture of me that celebrated my pregnancy."
"I had such a great experience with Melissa for my maternity photos! The whole experience was easy from start to finish--I used her online system to schedule, she came to my house a few days before with dresses for me to try on, and then we met at a local park for photos soon after. She was fun, friendly, and responsive throughout the process, and I am thrilled with how the pictures turned out!! Thank you, Melissa!"
"I had a great experience with Melissa! I usually don’t do these sort of photos but I decided to give it a try and I am so glad I did! Melissa was very easy to work with, she had a plan and we accomplished it. Not to mention how very pleased I am with the results! My photos came out great, I look forward to working with Melissa again!"
"I have been doing mini photo shoots for several years with random photographers, but we have finally found a home with Melissa. I love her communication, assistance with picking outfits, colors, poses, etc. Everything came out beautifully and it wouldn't have been so if it weren't for her!"
"I highly recommend Melissa. She made me and my family feel very comfortable and listened to our ideas. Also, I really loved her selection of maternity dresses. She also responded to all of my questions in a timely manner, and the turn around time was pretty quick. I loved the sneak peaks she gives."
As a Northern VA maternity photographer and mom, I felt there was a need for a safe, supportive, and drama free space for moms and moms-to-be to come together and support one another through the crazy lives we live as moms. Come join us and chat all things motherhood, pregnancy, and more!
