about the artist
My name is Melanie and I am a Maternity, Newborn, Child and Family Photographer in Brillion, WI.
I am a former teacher and mother of 5 children. As a mother, I know the importance of having photographs that document the many stages of development because they grow so quickly. In April of 2009, I photographed my first newborn and I fell in love instantly! There is nothing like capturing the tiny features of a fresh newborn. I specialize in newborns and photograph over 100 each year, but also love to capture babies as they grow as well as children and their families.
My in-home studio provides a comfortable, private place for my clients to sit back and relax while I capture priceless images of their little ones. My clients never feel rushed and I take the time to make sure the entire family feels comfortable. I typically only schedule 1-2 clients per day, so you are my number one priority on the day of your session.
Most of my sessions take place in my studio, but I can do sessions outdoors in the evening during the spring/summer/fall just before sunset. The late evening provides the best light for outdoor portraits.
Right away, you will see and feel the difference when coming to a private studio where I take the time to give you the best experience possible!
