how it works

Its the easiest thing!

You begin by filling out a contact form where you'll tell me a little about your family. We'll schedule a 10 minute call, I'll ask a few questions and we'll come up with a plan together. After our call you will receive a proposal that includes detailed pricing and when you're sure, you'll go right to a contract and invoice to book an available date.

The minimum investment for sessions with files is $600, on average families invest $1K per session.

The beauty - and freedom - of this approach is that our plans don't have to be special, complex or exhausting - we build from what you and your kids are already doing right now. It could be reading books at bedtime, playing dress up, having a tea party or just going for a swim at the pool. The other great thing? They're having a great time - which means smiles are real and performance is unnecessary. (Unless they want to, of course!)

No two families will - or should - have the same photos! And that's beautiful too.

Lastly, I build loyalty rewards into each package to make it easier to book your next session. My hope is that, over the years, you will be able to look back on an artful document of childhood that you can pass down in the form of not just files but beautifully curated books, keepsake prints and beautiful displays!

Making a documentary-style shoot a yearly ritual will assure that you stay in the picture while giving your children the story of their childhood as it unfolds.

It is powerful to grow up surrounded by photos that show you how loved you are, as you are.

So let's get a date on the calendar, have so much fun shooting and get your artwork up on walls, into books and in places where they can serve as daily reminders of what matters most, what you value as a family and how you show up for each other.

Working with Mel was the easiest process! ... Taking photos at the nearby playground was helpful for our girls to open up and be themselves... Our time with her flew by!
