Melissa specializes in maternity, newborn, baby and family photography in her private studio in Coventry, CT. Serving all of Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Melissa photographed our newborn son and we are so happy with the photos. Melissa takes her time to get the perfect photos with her families and didn't mind that our little guy needed a few extra breaks in order to do so. Thanks so much for capturing such a special time!

I book portrait sessions upon appointment in my private studio in Coventry Connecticut. I also use beautiful outdoor locations throughout the state. Be sure to capture all the milestones of your baby’s first year of life. Begin with her/his first hours of life. Fresh48 sessions are the perfect way to document this time, for more information on a Fresh48 session please click here.


These moments go by so quickly and can never be captured again. I simply love capturing all of life’s moments whether it be a posed family photograph, an unposed candid silly toddler or your everyday lifestyle moments… to me these are all important memories which should be captured and frozen in time. I specialize in newborns and maternity. I also offer baby and children milestone sessions, as well as seniors and families sessions based on availability.

Nothing is more fulfilling than capturing a moment, an expression or an emotion that is at the core of a relationship. I love documenting those special moments. I simply love what I do. Many thanks for your interest in my work, I hope to one day touch your heart with images of your beautiful children and capture special moments in your life.


A photograph never grows up; you want to cherish your newborns first days, your infant’s first smile, your child’s silly ways, your teen’s senior portrait, the strength of your family. Let me capture the moments you will treasure for a lifetime.
