    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 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

Orange County, CA Family Photographer // Johnson family

This session was extra special. Not only was Becky an old friend from high school I haven’t seen since we graduated, her family was also a dream to work with. Sometimes little boys can be a challenge, but not these two! They took direction, were so friendly and well behaved. And the best part was how much they loved their little sister. Check out all the amazing shots we got!

Orange County, CA Maternity Photographer // Amy and Tung

I love the light and airy feeling of this maternity session. Her pastel pink and dress and her flower halo were perfect for this outdoor location. And check out the adorable stethoscope pics. Baby’s daddy is a cardiologist and they wanted to incorporate into the photo session. Amy, you are a beautiful mommy to be!

Orange County, CA Newborn Photographer // Ledger completes the triple L’s

I’ve had the pleasure of working with this family before and I just adore them! Meeting new people is one of the most awesome parts of my job. Many clients become friends! And baby Ledger did not disappoint! What a cutie pie and such a breeze to pose for his newborn photos. And can we just take a second to talk about his adorable sisters, Lennon and Lincoln! They were pefectly behaved and so easy to work with. That says a lot since they are only 1 and 3. Good job mama!!

Orange County, CA Photographer // Sweetest baby girl

I love it when clients return for their second baby to see me for newborn photos! I’ve done maternity and newborn photos for both of their kids and it’s an honor getting to see their family grow. Miss Emma was full of smiles and was such a good girl throughout her session!
