Forget the props and perfect poses. If you’re in search of a Boston family and newborn photographer who will capture your family just as you are, you’ve come to the right place! Nothing makes me happier than photographing genuine and honest moments for my clients. I want to capture those tiny toes, your dog licking that brand new baby’s face, and your little one’s first wobbly steps.

 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 house, and when they invite me back to capture their families as they grow and change.

"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. 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!!"
