from wedding to family of 5!

I was able to let go, for the first time…

i felt like i was safe to be seen as i am…

melissa's gift made me feel at ease…

one of the best things I ever did…

she captured How beautiful I felt…

She preserves moments in time…

“Melissa is amazingly talented! She has such a gift! We were lucky enough to have her capture our wedding day, and then again as a family of five, five years later! Not only is she talented, creative, and professional, but she is also a beautiful person inside and out!”

"Melissa made us all feel so comfortable, as if we'd known each other for ages. She went above and beyond helping me relax before the wedding and enjoy every moment of the day. Everyone in my wedding party and family loved working with Melissa, she made everything quick and fun for all of them.My husband and I love not only Melissa's work but who she is as a person. Melissa was the first person we called when we started to expand our family - to document the journey in her amazingly lovely way.

“She is now my GO TO photographer for all things! She has a very special talent of making you feel so comfortable. I personally used to dread doing photo shoots, but Melissa makes them something I look forward to. I felt like I was safe to be seen as I am; which allowed me to embody my beauty. She captures the true essence of everyone, and makes every shoot fun!”

"She immediately set us at ease and kindly directed our group. She never missed a moment. I squealed for joy when I saw the results- amazing. She is a true artist with an eye and vision.Both our engagement photos and our wedding photos are works of art and now our baby and family photos. I have them framed around our house and often stop to admire. I wish she would send me everything she shoots just so that I could admire her work- beautiful doesn't begin to describe it!"

"We really enjoyed our family photo shoot with Melissa. She set a relaxed pace and had great suggestions for us - she captured some special moments and the results are beautiful.Loved every minute of working with Melissa. Like most people, I hate being in front of a camera, but she made it fun and playful and the photos show it. Couldn't be happier with how my headshots turned out and couldn't believe how much fun it was either. I'm officially referring her to everyone I know"

"Melissa Robin is one of those gems of a photographer that has the rare gift of making you feel embodied, confident, and at ease. I am incredibly grateful that she was able to so artistically and professionally capture how beautiful I felt in my body and soul. Through her guidance, ready to share my empowered soul with the world. Now, seeing the edited photos, it brings me such joy and awe to see myself glowing with love! "

As a professional model and actress, I’ve worked with many photographers and there’re only a few that stood out as being Exceptional at what they do, Melissa is one of them. Melissa's talent is capturing a multi-layered mood, both of Light and Dark, that evokes a unique depth of feeling in her photos. She captures the essence of her subject and the emotions present during the shoot. She preserves a moment in time that the photos bring you back to, time and again.

authentic moments encapsulated

You are the kind of person that loves things that are real & authentic. You also want to capture the real and authentic moments of your life. In order to do that, you need a photographer that understands you and can help you feel comfortable, relaxed, and be natural in front of the camera. 

The problem is that most photographs will awkwardly pose you and get you to “say cheese” which inevitably leads to disappointing results.

I know this is really frustrating. I understand your need to find a photographer you can connect with and hire for a lifetime. I believe that photography sessions should be fun and playful to capture REAL authentic smiles. That’s why I document your family doing something you love – like going on a hike or playing in your backyard. Where you are relaxed and at ease. 

So Book an initial call where we'll go over details and questions. Then we meet on location and document those happy smiles!
