MAINE PORTRAIT, LIFESTYLE & BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY
hi, I'm Melissa
Your Timeless Storyteller
Welcome, I'm so glad you're here! I absolutely love photography because of the power it has to make a moment stand still. I love the outdoors! Biking, hiking and camping are just a few of my many passions. Most of the images I create with clients are outside because I think that's the best place to be! I love traveling to a beautiful location to get your perfect backdrop and evoking true emotion during our time together to make your photos a unique reflection of who you are.

“Melissa is fantastic to work with!! She provides location recommendations, excellent communication, and of course most importantly fantastic photos! We have had her take two sets of family photos at two different locations and could not be more pleased with the memories captured in both shoots.”

“We always enjoy our sessions with Melissa! Her work is phenomenal! Melissa is full of ideas and always gets the perfect shot. My husband and I recently hired Melissa to catch all of the special moments through out my pregnancy and of our newborn daughter. She was able to capture all of the feelings and emotions tied to the most incredible event in our lives. We will forever be going to Melissa to help document our daughters milestones and ongoing family memories. Thank you Melissa!”

“Working with Melissa was a dream come true. Not only is she extremely comfortable to be around and to work with, she is professional, talented, and skillful. She makes you feel like the most beautiful person in the world in front of the camera & is always willing to get the best shot, even if it means getting in the pond up to her knees in water. Her work is 1000% quality and her photography is an art. My husband and I were so thrilled and lucky to be able to work with her.”

“Melissa is easily one of the best photographers I’ve ever met. She’s so easy to talk to and makes you feel so comfortable. She told us how to stand and pose and the pictures always look so soft and natural. She’s quick and efficient and the end results are breathtaking. She did our maternity and newborn photos and we're obsessed with both. We’ll be going to Melissa for all future photos.”
—Amber & Sinjin
“Today was the first time I have ever worked with Melissa. SHE WAS AMAZING! I was so nervous to have my picture taken; as I haven’t been feeling the most confident pregnant. She made me feel comfortable, made me laugh and made me feel confident! She was overall amazing and I can’t wait for her to do our wedding in October!”
“I honestly can't say thank you enough for the boudoir experience! The more I look at the photos, the more I love them and appreciate myself! I was super nervous at first, but got more relaxed as the shoot went on. The nerves were so, so worth the it. I'm glad I can share the photos with my fiancé, but honestly it does so much more for me.”
“I cannot say enough about Melissa and her photography skills! Shane and I spent all day with her bopping around Portland, ME. Basically, she let Shane and I have a date where she photographed us naturally and gave us the perfect amount of direction to make sure our photos came out even better than we would have imagined. LOVE LOVE LOVE working with her and would highly recommend her to anyone. She made us feel incredibly comfortable. I was overly impressed with her professionalism as well.”
—Brittany & Shane
“I’d highly recommend having Melissa do your photos! For the first time meeting her, I felt so comfortable with her, as I would with one of my best friends! I loved how she told me and Adam exactly how to pose, what to do, all while capturing US. Not only are the photos exceptionally beautiful but we had a genuinely fun time shooting with Melissa!!!”
