Meliza did a maternity and newborn photo session for our family. She provided us with a warm and genuine experience. Meliza was really able to capture the beauty in our everyday life.

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! However your baby and home are when your sessions starts - it's going to be perfect. Promise.

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!

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. Take your baby's clothes off and go for a naked baby look or a simple, white onesie. Please don't stress about having a perfect outfit.


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:


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.
