melissa :: st. paul maternity photographer

Meet my very dear friend Melissa Surprise. Yes, that's her real name. Isn't she gorgeous? She's an incredibly talented childrens' lifestyle photographer as well, based in Highland, NY. If you live in upstate New York and are looking for some fun, bright, modern photos that really capture your child's personality, do give her a call! She's expecting her third boy, and she got a turn in front of the camera during our reunion in Nashville. I absolutely adore shooting maternity portraits using natural light. The glow and radiance of the moms, the way the light hugs the curves in their growing bellies... it's all so inspiring. Oh, that and the fact that they're not two years old and constantly running away from the camera!

We were also able to photograph a newborn (just 13 days old!) and another one of my dear friends (and incredible photographer!) who is also expecting. Can't wait to share these photos as well. Stay tuned!
