this is what you need to know:

it's an easy-going photography experience

There's no pressure to have a Pinterest ready home, a perfect outfit or even a baby that stays asleep the whole time. Trust me, I know what it’s like to have a newborn. I've done it twice! Please don’t feel like you have to clean the house before I arrive. We can easily clean up an area we want to use for photos while I’m there.

your newborn is perfect

just the way they are

A newborn portrait session is 100% guided by baby and what they want to do.  Your newborn is perfect just the way they are. I don't try and make babies sleep or place them in unnatural poses. I will walk around your home and find the best lighting and if it means using a single window for the whole session - that's what we'll do. I can assure you a variety of images and a gorgeous collection can be achieved with very little space! Woohoo 

 

I have two toddlers of my own and know exactly how big this change is for the siblings in the house. Here are some ways I help your session flow and feel as comfortable as possible when toddlers are involved:

i will help your toddler feel

happy and comfortable
during your photo shoot

  1. I will take time at the beginning to build rapport with your toddler before taking photos. They usually enjoy the experience more when it's 'their friend' taking the pictures!

  2. Sibling and family photos happen right at the start because the sibling may lose interest in taking photos quickly! Toddler attention spans are about as big as they are ;)

  3. Have no major expectations for the siblings and never force them into doing anything they aren't comfortable with. 

  4. Prepare the sibling for your photo shoot by telling them that a friend is coming to visit and take some pictures of your family.

  5. Pro-tip for toddlers: share my social media with them. If they know my face they are more likely to warm up faster than if they didn't know me at all!

Meliza’s casual approach really put us at ease. We were able to be ourselves and just enjoy spending time with our newborn while Meliza captured every moment. Truly the best photography experience we have had.
