Meet Melissa - New Hampshire photographer

The perfect mix of professional, talented + fun!

I love music.

I spent high school completely engrossed in singing.  Choirs, plays, even some piano, I was sure that was going to be my life. I even started a music education degree at UNH. But it ended up not being where my heart was. When my son was born, I started taking copious photos of him and the more images I took, the more I saw images everywhere. A friend asked me if I’d be interested in photographing his daughter’s wedding. I told him I had never done that. He said ‘yeah, but do you want to?’ And did I ever! I photographed that first wedding and a new love was revealed. Now — over a decade later — I’m still so in love with making tangible memories. Babies, families, weddings and events, there are moments to remember.

“Melissa is incredible! She has photographed our family since we were expecting our first son, right through two pregnancies and two “first year” series of photos. She is warm and relaxed, making us feel at ease even when we were brand new parents with no idea what we were doing! She has continued to do family photos for us and is flexible and wonderful with our children. Somehow she makes our hectic family look amazing!! I can’t recommend her highly enough as a photographer and as a human being. You will not be disappointed!!!” – Meghan & Leo
