Forget the props and perfect poses! If you’re in search of a Boston family photographer who offers a relaxed experience along with photo galleries that are chock full of light-hearted, joyful, and humorous moments, we probably should connect ;). Nothing fills my cup up more than photographing the (beautiful) chaos that is life with tiny humans, and I promise you’ll leave your session smiling ear to ear. Your skeptical spouse might even say it was fun!

 My work has been featured on popular blogs and publications such as Looks Like Film, Lemonade and Lenses, Clickin’ Moms, and Boston Voyager. But honestly, the biggest honor of all is when clients tell me they can’t stop staring at their photos, when they print them and hang them all over the homes, and when they invite me back to capture their families as they grow and change.

Boston Family Photographer

"Photos are a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone."

"I am so happy we chose Melissa for our photos. I had very high expectations. The process and photos turned out to be even better than I expected! I hoped to get a few very good photos and ended up getting more than 90 I absolutely love!"


I’m a parent myself, so I completely understand what it’s like to be ridiculously busy and I 100% appreciate SIMPLICITY. As your Boston family photographer, I  want you to walk away with the very best images from our time together, which is why I offer all-inclusive packages with digital files and printing rights.

"Melissa is amazing.The expressions and photos she captures are outstanding. Her work is terrific and her ability to work with little children is bar none. I honestly could keep writing accolades but to sum it up she is terrific and I am so lucky to have the beautiful photos that I have of my girls thanks to Melissa's amazing eye and talent. I can not wait for her to take my next set of memories!!"
