If you’re into sticky kisses, giggles and epic backyard adventures, head this direction.
Lets do this
Towering pines, moss coated boulders, glistening lakes. These are just some of the many things you find in a Northern Minnesota landscape. Luckily
I can find places to take pictures almost anywhere. With an eye for spying out little areas, often smack dab in the middle of down town, trust me, I’ll find us something.
Good gosh I suck at writing today. Anyway, something about how I can find amazing locations that most people would never thing. I know composition. I can use my lenses and camera settings to make it look like some sort of dreamy landscape. Then I beg peeps to be adventurous and trust me. K. Got it.
Hate shopping for gifts? Me too. There are eleventybillion doubts running through my head when trying to pick the perfect item to get cousin Rizzo for her baby shower. What if someone else gets her the same thing? What if she hates it? What if her kid outgrows this in like, a week?
You know what nobody doesn’t like? Pictures. We love em. We plaster them on our walls, pin them to our social media, and hold on to them forever. We don’t outgrow them, and the coolest thing about pictures is they only get more special as time goes by.
So, if you really want to make cousin Rizzo smile, I’ve got just the thing for you.
So there’s this weird thing that happens when I’m around babies where they start grinning. Something in the way their eyes light up transforms me into a big ole butterball of squeaky baby talk and silly faces.
I’ll let you in on a little secret: It works on grown ups too.
My reputation for picking on parents during family sessions is well earned. And I really hope you’re down to witness a tog-tantrum when your kiddo wont stop smiling even after I told em to knock it off.
For some reason everyone seems to like all of this nonsense and they keep asking me to hang out again and again. And again. Go figure.
Had such a fun photo shoot! Mel is able to get everyone involved to catch great photos. She has great ideas also and would recommend her to anyone if they want to capture awesome memories!!
Needs more stars, five just doesn’t do it. We LOVE the photos She did of our baby and plan to book a family shoot very soon. She is an awesome person who is easy to work with, patient and VERY good at what she does. I personally have used "professional" photographers a few times and trust me she blows them all away. Plus she kept even my fussy baby feeling comfortable. I couldn’t be happier.
Love her work. She did a good job getting my daughter to cooperate.
I love every picture that she has done. I cant wait to do more!
Mel is the best!!! She has done our family photos twice and I am proud to say we will never go to anyone else!!
She is the best!
I love her images! Her attention to detail will impress and her props will complement the style and mood perfectly. You will be so glad you called or visited her website.
Not only is Mel extremely professional and talented, she is just overall welcoming and will go out of her way to make sure you get the pictures you want. Between kids, boudoir, maternity, and soon newborn pictures I can’t even imagine having anyone else take care of our pictures.
It's clear that Mel cares about her customers most. We were expecting a stuffy studio, but were pleasantly surprised when she told us she has a home-based studio. It was more personal and so comfortable. Mel is a riot! We loved that her website and pricing was all very straightforward with zero surprises. Her work is superb. She went above and beyond to deliver and the results are easy to see every day on our walls!
She is the absolute best! She is great with kids and dads that dont like to take pictures. If you want a good picture let her take them!!
We loved everything she did for our baby. She had outfits and props ready and we had a chance to relax. It was very easy to see that our little Taylor was in good hands. Mel is a for real baby whisperer!
Mel is amazing! Did an amazing job on my maternity & newborn photos. The way she works with babies, I must call her the baby guru.
Mel did such a fabulous job with our baby, soothing him and making sure he was always warm and comfortable. I still can't believe how expertly she posed him and how beautiful the images turned out. She is a true professional!
