I don’t do a ton of senior photos, but let me tell you…Kendall has me hooked! She was an absolute JOY to photograph! We had a blast using several outfits and different locations resulting in a rad variety of photos. And can I just say I love it when clients wear hats. But really, she is such a natural beauty that she would have been amazing in any outfit or location! Check out her photos below!
I don’t shoot weddings, which means I don’t do many engagements or couples photos. But when the owner of my gym and his fiancee asked me, I couldn’t say no! And oh my gosh, after doing their shoot I kinda want to do engagement photos ALL the time….just not the wedding…haha! We had the most perfect light and even though they thought I was kinda crazy with some of my direction, they turned out sooo dreamy! And how cute are they?!!
It’s been a while since I have blogged about my studio so I wanted to do an update. It’s changed a bit since I first started using it more than 2 years ago. What started out as a dream, turned into my cozy space which now I couldn’t live without!
It’s small, but mighty! It’s right around 250 sq ft. but since I built it from the ground up I am able to utilize every inch of the space.
So take a look around and message me (MelissaStewardson@gmail.com) if you have any questions!
Been loving my new boho swing! It’s perfect for mommy and me, individual children and sibling shots!
Oh my goodness!! How cute is Hudson??!!! His mom came up with this lumberjack theme and idea and I had some fun props to make it happen. Hudson was all smiles and loved his cake! He was all boy when he tried to destroy it towards the end of his session. 🙂
Meet the handsome Hideki and his adorable brothers!
These babies were just amzing throughout their newborn session! I didn’t want to let them leave!
Booking a session with twins gets me all giddy and excited!!! I do a lot of planning and hire an assistant for the session to make sure it will go as smooth as possible. Even with one baby at a newborn session you never really know how it’s going to go. You pray, cross your fingers and have all the baby soothing tricks at the ready! Last Thursday was pure bliss!!! The Chuk family was absolutely amazing. As you can see the baby girls were beyond adorable and they were a newborn photographers dream. So sleepy, calm and loved being posed. And big brother was the cherry on top. He came right in, laid down with his sisters and gave the biggest smiles! And, I also have to mention their awesome parents. They were so kind and so great with their kids. Take a look at all the beautiful photos we got!
It finally happened to me after 5 years of doing photos. My babysitter forgot to show up! I was in full panic mode knowing I was going to be late to my session. Luckily my sister lives nearby and was able to help me out. I arrived about 12 minutes late to the session and was frazzled and embarassesd, to say the least. Since it was busy season I knew I couldn’t reschedule because I had no open dates and this was a family of 6 who I didn’t want to have ask the mom to get the family ready again on another night. I unloaded my car, and apologized profusely for being tardy. The Forge family was so understanding and kind to me. I had in mind that the session might be a bit of a challenge since they had 4 kids, one being a baby. But, you guys…this family!!! Not only sweet, but so photogenic and the kids were insanely good for me! They took direction, smiled on command and were polite and friendly! What started out not so great ended up being one of my favorite sessions of the fall. Take a look at all the gorgeousness we captured that night! And wait for it….the sunset at the end was amazing!
