Hello and welcome to my site!
My name is Melissa (Lissa for short) and I am a family photographer based on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I specialize in newborn portraits and I strive to capture authentic memories for my clients to treasure. My husband recently separated from the U.S. Navy and we moved our young son back home to Boston after spending a decade in sunny San Diego so that he can grow up with a loving extended family like we both did. My background is in business and mathematics but after having my son I realized it was important for both of us that I stay home and fully appreciate his day to day growth. It’s also allowed me time to explore my more creative interests and in 2016 I began class to study photography. I really love learning new things and invited the challenge to take on a new skill, although at the time I thought it would be just a hobby. Now I try to use my own experience as a mother to guide me in dealing with clients. I understand that you need to preserve the present as best you can because everything changes in the blink of an eye (or the snap of a shutter). I’m so excited to bring my passion for photography home to the East Coast to share with my family and friends. And once you book a session with me I consider you part of that group.
Thanks so much for visiting! -Melissa
