Specializing in Maternity and newborn

Get to know me

Hi! I'm the owner and artist behind the camera, and I'm so glad you're here! If you want to remember your motherhood journey through timeless photography sessions, 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 on the motherhood journey. Now I'm proud to say I specialize in maternity and newborn photography! 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 for their maternity sessions and creating lasting memories of their first days at home with their newborn, 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!

Your friendly Northern Virginia Photographer

When you come to Melissa Driggers Photography, you will be treated like the queen that you are. It is my mission to make every one of my expecting mommas look and feel amazing during a time when, let's be honest, you may not always feel so great. I've been there, I get it! But this is such a special time in your life! You are CREATING life! And your newborn will only be little for so long!  So let's make the memories of a lifetime together!


I know how overwhelming it can get. Let me reduce some stress for you by helping you plan the details for both your maternity and your newborn sessions. With styling help along the way and the option to upgrade to include professional hair & makeup, you won't have to worry about doing any of it alone. I will coach you through posing, and your images will be professionally retouched to give them that extra special touch.


Don't let this opportunity slip through your fingers. Let's take some time out of these 40 short weeks to plan the perfect maternity and newborn sessions for you and your family! Let's celebrate you with a beautifully styled maternity session! And then we'll make some memories of your growing family at home with your newborn session! Embrace your entire motherhood journey, and let's do this!


The Melissa Driggers Photography Experience

"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!"

Alexandria, Virginia Newborn Session


"I’m a mom of 2 and currently expecting my last baby. This pregnancy has been extremely hard on me, but I wanted to have good memories by doing a maternity session. I’m so glad I found Melissa, she is absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to make me feel beautiful and comfortable with the photo shoot. The final result was absolutely amazing, and we loved every single picture."

Burke, Virginia Maternity SEssion


"Attention to detail, thoughtful, creative and caring are a few words that come to mind when I think about my newborn session with Melissa! She made everything so easy from start to finish! Her booking process is seamless, user friendly and SO informative. She covers all the bases when you’re her client and she treats you like a long time friend. You will NOT regret your session with Melissa!"

Manassas, VirginiA Newborn SEssion


"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."
