Baltimore Birth, maternity, & newborn Photographer

My commitment to giving you the best experience possible comes long before I even pick up my camera. 

It’s important to me that you feel fully supported during this journey. 

As a member of the local birth community, I can help you get in touch with doulas, midwives, & other local birthworkers in your area that may be helpful to you and your family during pregnancy and beyond. 

All families & births welcome.

Hey. I'm Melissa.

your baltimore birth photographer


I’m a documentary birth, maternity, & newborn photographer currently living in Maryland.  As a mother of two, I understand the importance of capturing this time in your life honestly & authentically.  

Photography has become a huge part of my every day & I’m passionate about preserving the memories of not only my family, but yours as well. 

No maternity, birth, or postpartum experience is exactly the same so I approach each and every session with the reverence it deserves. 

I’m honored and humbled you’re here & I cannot wait to be on this journey with you. 

“She took stunning, candid photos that my husband and I will treasure the rest of our lives.”

"We were blown away by the photos & they are memories we will cherish forever."
– Kate


My goal with every session is to provide you with a custom experience that results in luxury, heirloom artwork which will be treasured by your family for generations to come.
