Sweet Words


“Melinda is a gem to stumble across in the photography world. We hit it off during our first phone conversation. I knew I made an excellent choice. She wanted to see options for coordinated clothing looks for my entire family and provided suggestions as well. It was like I was talking with my best friend over what to wear. If communication is important to you, Melinda is your gal. She has an amazing talent and a great personality to deal with little ones that don’t necessarily want to cooperate at 7 am on a chilly morning. Melinda delivered on all aspects of our family photo shoot. Fantastic turn around time on proofs and printed photos. We will be scheduling routine photo shoots with her for years to come.” -Hallie

Lucky for me, not only is Melinda a fabulous photographer she was able to hold my hand through getting our family of 6 dressed for our amazing shoot (well, outfits coordinated -we have the getting dressed thing down)! We tried to dance around Mother Nature’s schedule with the DC cherry blossoms and Melinda was so generous to even change the day of our shoot to accommodate the fickle weather. She worked against wind and bright sunshine to give us stunning images that are just timeless. The quick sneak peak the day of was icing on the cake! I cannot wait for these prints to hang on the walls.” -Nellie


“As always Melinda, you captured a moment in time for our family that will forever be preserved and fondly remembered. Patience with a newborn is a virtue and the result made it look effortless! You are documenting our lives and I can’t think of anyone better to do this than you.” -Charlotte


“Melinda, thank you so very much for the beautiful pictures you took of me and my family. Your ability to capture such stunning pictures, even while Jakob and Lukas were clowning around, speaks volumes to your talent and professionalism. Not only did the pictures turn out better than I could have hoped for, but the session went smooth and without a hitch. You put my family and me at ease and allowed this experience (which as a child I remember as painful) to be fun and exciting. But what I am most thankful for, is that you made a tired and stressed working mother of two small rambunctious boys look (and feel) beautiful. I have friends finally asking ME for fashion and beauty advice.” -Nina
