Colleen, 2019

This was so much more than having some photos taken, this was a life changing, life renewing experience. 

Meg, 2019

It was like a transformation. Melody and her staff achieved more than I could have imagined. With makeup and then Melody’s professional eye she coaxed me into exuding the real beauty behind my being. 
Someone I had never realized I could be. 

Debra, 2020

Working with Melody is a great pleasure. She has a talent to extract a model out of everyone. The pictures turned out beyond what I expected. I'm not that photogenic, but Melody found all the favorable angles and she literally guided me how to pose inch by inch, where to put my hands, where to look, smile etc.

Svetlana, 2019

I loved my sessions and really felt butterflies in my belly due to excitement, nervousness and found a new beauty in me. Hope i can come back one day again to enjoy those lovely feelings.

She captured real emotion in my expressions, and the entire experience was incredibly enjoyable. I felt like a runway model

Joanne, 2019

Melody took our first family photos and the experience was wonderful. She was efficient with time and excellent with our newborn. The pictures turned out beautifully! The reveal was really fun, and Melody was superb at helping us decide on the size, framing and placement of photos in our living space.

Veronica, 2018.

Melody is an exceptionally talented and skilled photographer. Her photographs are exquisite. Every time.

Nicole, 2019.

Melody is fantastic to work with and is an extremely talented photographer. We have done two shoots with her and the photos are far beyond what we had hoped for, both times. She works very well with kids and captures candid chats that are priceless. Several friends have asked for her information when they see our beautiful photos.

Molly, 2018.

Laura Beth, 2018.

Melody does a wonderful job catching the essence of a person Not every photographer can find that spark or twinkle like she does. I have always highly recommended her an will continue to do so.

Jennifer, 2014.

I could go on for a lifetime about how amazing Melody is as a photographer. I have done several photo shoots/sessions in my life, and hands down, hers topped them all without question. She has a way of bringing the best out of you and it shows in her photos.  

Jackie, 2014.

 I felt like for years I was someone who hid from the camera, often joking with friends about what disfigured faces I somehow managed in pictures. Melody has an eye for coaching and finding that right angle to get the perfect portrait.

Kat, 2018.

This was so much fun- Melody truely made me feel like a model! She was so kind and thoughtful, and it was clear she loves what she does. Such a fantastic experience!

Diana, 2019.

Melody took our first family photos right before our sons 1st birthday. She did an amazing job. It is so difficult for us to get our son to smile or laugh for photos and she had no trouble at all. We simply adore all of our photos. She was great to work with and very professional.

Jenny, 2017.

We hired Melody to do my son's senior portraits. She was easy to work with and the photos were wonderful. We were so pleased with them that we hired her for another photo shoot for our daughter.
