Hi my name is Melissa + I specialize in family, maternity, milestone and newborn photography serving (but not limited to) the Temecula Valley + surrounding areas (San Diego County, Orange County) of CALIFORNIA. Lifestyle and candids are my most favorite to capture. I am a fun-loving, optimistic, imaginative, patient person who would LOVE to be your forever photographer.

I am a wife and mama to two awesome BIG kids. I love hiking, being outdoors in the SUNSHINE + enjoying a glass of wine or two at my favorite wineries. The perfect sunrise and sunset, a hot cup of coffee in peace. I'm a SAVED BY GRACE, I am so thankful for everything He (God) has given me. Originally from St Louis, Missouri I joined the US Air Force (where I met my hubby and now we are both veterans). I have lived in many states but ended up in Orange County, California for many years and moved to Denver, Colorado area for awhile (LOVE Colorado!) and now back in California, but the wine country side in gorgeous Temecula Valley.  I have many tattoos, I love my body art and intend to get a full sleeve of gorgeous flowers one day.

I have been doing family + newborn photography for 12 years now, I am always inspired by the world around me and people. I would love to chat about your future photo session and capture your family in some gorgeous golden light. Please feel free to ask me anything!  I love what I do and hope to hear from you soon.
