Here is what some past clients are saying…

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 newborn boy in antique metal egg basket with blue blanket on rustic wood plank floor



Christine did my pregnancy announcement photos, maternity photos and newborn photos. She is AMAZING. Her work is flawless and my pictures are stunning. ~ Amanda pregnancy announcment snow maternity and newborn session with mother holding baby boy



Christine has been our family photographer for years! She’s captured some of our favorite memories and her pictures are outstanding! We’ve done newborn, cake smash, holiday photos, beach family photos and holiday family photos and couldn’t be more thrilled with the result. It was all money well spent for having her capture these memories. Plus she is really great with kids- even difficult ones like mine! Would 100% recommend her and look forward to using her again and again!  ~Jessica


I booked Christine for my sons 1st birthday cake smash based on a recommendation from a friend. Days after the session after seeing a teaser, I immediately booked my sons Christmas photos. She just has a way with him and her photos bring out and capture his personality so well. She will be our family photographer for years to come. I am so glad I found her!!  ~Stephanie long island cake smash photographer colorful boy themed one year photos

Christine has photographed every momentous occasion for us. There’s not a picture frame in this house without a photo Christine has captured, she’s watched our son grow up behind her lens. ~Marisol

Christine is simply amazing!!!! She captured such beautiful pictures of my baby girl! I am so glad that I did both the maternity and newborn session with Christine. She is so professional and I was in awe watching her work and seeing how gently she posed my baby girl, who was only 3.5 days old. I highly recommend anyone thinking of capturing beautiful moments to hire Christine!  ~ Suney



Loved working with Christine. Took the cutest pics of my then 1year old who was a Valentine’s day baby. She took the theme and ran with it. Very accommodating and detailed.  ~Sandra G.

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.
