When I found out that I was pregnant one of the things that I was most looking forward to was newborn pictures. Several of my friends had used Christine Melissa and their pictures were always so beautiful – there was never a question in my mind that when the time came I would use her as well. It goes without saying that the pictures of my son are adorable. She captured so many great shots of him that it was difficult for me to choose which ones I wanted to print out and frame! But, to be honest, having seen photos of my friends pictures taken by Christine I knew going into the shoot that I’d fall in love with the final product. What I didn’t realize was the extreme attention to detail and super personalized level of service that I would receive during our shoot. I was nervous for the shoot, because my son was a fussy newborn and I just didn’t see how I could get him to sit still long enough for pictures. Well, let me tell you, Christine takes care of EVERYTHING. I’m not sure how, but for several hours during the shoot she was able to keep my typical fussy baby asleep, warm, and quiet. She had infinite patience with my little one and she really has a soothing demeanor that just seemed to calm my son. He looks like a peaceful little peanut in all of the pictures. Having this level of service was so much more than just “taking pictures” – the whole experience from start to finish was really a pleasure. I plan on using Christine again for my son’s milestone pictures when they arise – I can’t imagine using anyone else. ~Heather M.
Christine Melissa photographed my daughter’s cake smash and it was such a fun experience. She helped me style the set to my daughter’s birthday colors and it turned out beautiful. She even edited a few photos before the party so I could display them and everyone loved them. She was so sweet and patient with my little girl and I can’t wait till our next session with her. ~ Ellen J.
Our family session with Christine Melissa was wonderful. Just having wrangled and dressed my 2 children to the park, I showed up to the session a little stressed and frazzled. Christine’s easy-going and laid back demeanor set me at ease immediately. She was great with my children and they loved her. We just added a new puppy to our family so we booked a fall family session and will include him. ~Stephanie P.
