    Melissa Stewardson Photography, located in Orange County, CA and established in 2012 specializes in custom portraits of maternity, newborns, children and families. Experiencing a photo session with me should be fun and relaxing. I know what you're thinking...did she say fun and relaxing?! Am I crazy?! I don't think so. My goal for each session is to shoot photos that look natural and highlight the personalities and vibrancy of the people in them. While, I will shoot some traditional poses, I feel some of the best photos come during candid play or general foolishness! Time flies by so fast so let me capture your family memories today! I can't wait to get to know you and show you what I see through my lens!

Orange County, CA High School Senior Photographer // Bella the Beauty!

I love photographing families and babies, but when I get a chance to photograph a high school senior I get REALLY excited! It gives me a chance to get outside my normal comfort zone and let my creative juices flow. And Isabella was simply A-mazing! Not only is she drop dead gorgeous she was on fire in front of the camera. Just knew how to work it! It was really one of the best sessions I’ve ever had. Take a look at some of our favorites.

Orange County, CA Couples Photographer // Carrington and Nick in the snow

These two wanted an engagement session in the snow and we were lucky enough to get it! Southern California decided to deliver enough snow for a fun, but cold session up in the mountains. We only had about 15 minutes to capture these photos before the fog and snow started to roll in. But I just love how they turned out and I check off a snow session from my bucket list!

Orange County, CA Family Photographer // For the Winn

Photographing this beautiful family was something sepcial. Even though Eric is fighting cancer, you’d never know it. We had so many laughs and smiles, and an overall great time during the session. You can definitely see their love for each other in their photos.

Orange County, CA Family Photographer // Cutest Fam Bam!

Seeing families year after year in the fall is my fav! I think this is my 4th session with this family and I adore working with them. I mean….could these little girls be any cuter?! And mom and dad are pretty hot themselves!! Being that the mom is a hairdresser I know their hair is always going to be on point. And cool fact about the dad; he is a cameraman for The Bacherlor/Bachelorette TV show! I bet he’s heard and seen it all! I am so thankful for families that book me year after. XOXO
