Leila is the lucky winner of a free session from a contest back in late January (remember here)! Leila is a very chill and laid back kind of baby girl and although she didn’t smile as much as she normally does, I think she came out gorgeous! Check her out: Headband from Wisely Crafted Originals Set by PreciousBabyClothes

Madison made me chase her all around the park for her mini session but she was so cute & fun. She recently turned two and did not want anything to do with standing still and looking at me but she did enjoy the “Happy” song during the shoot! Madison and quite the stylista, check out her momma on Instagram: AppleButterBoutique

Hello my beautiful followers! Today I will be traveling to Texas for an amazing opportunity, to meet and learn from Captured by Claudia Photography! I have learned everything I know about newborn photography by reading, researching, thinking and lots of practice! I’ve always been one to say “follow your dreams” but never really followed my own dream to the fullest. Today’s journey is a prime example of me following that dream and understanding that my dreams want me just as bad as I want them! Follow me on Instagram by clicking here & follow these hashtags: ‪#‎melzphotography‬ ‪#‎cbcmentoring‬ Check out who Captured by Claudia Photography is and while you’re there enjoy her beautiful work: website | facebook | instagram Please share this post and inspire yourself or anyone you know who may need the inspiration 😉

Newborn Lukas was the best baby ever, he slept the entire session. He was not bothered with all the moving around and posing! I haven’t had a newborn in the studio since February and he was just TOO good to me! It’s been to long and I cannot wait for all my summer newborns! Check him out!

As many of you know, I am strictly a maternity, newborn and child photographer but every now and then I think it is good to step out of the box! I was contacted by Karen to photograph her daughter for her upcoming birthday and it’s not just a regular birthday. it’s a sweet 16! The crazy part is I did not hesitate and I accepted this challenge, it was refreshing and fun to try something out of my element. I won’t mind accepting these kind of inquiries every now and then, so please feel free to spread the word. I will accept a limited quantity within a months time. Hope you all enjoy the photos!!
