“Working with Melissa for our maternity pictures was truly a great experience! She listens to exactly what you are looking for in your pictures (outfits, location, props) and helps to make sure you get just want you want. I was very comfortable in her home studio even for those shots where you might want to show a little more skin. Her turn around time is quick and I was in tears when she showed us just how beautiful our pictures were. I got more than I expected and couldn’t ask for anything more. I can’t wait until our newborn session!”

“Melissa, Every year you amaze us with your talent. These photographs of my family are absolutely stunning! You are dialing in your craft, getting better every year, like a great wine. Juxtapose, I am losing my hair and going grey. My girls are growing up. You are capturing their transformation from children into young women. This year your work is nothing less perfect. The lighting and color is breathtaking, you got it all! Beautiful. Hope you are well. Thank you for capturing our emotions with your camera. Missy and I will cherish these photos for as long as we live. My children will have these long after we are gone. They will understand and reflect upon these moments and know that we loved them with all of our hearts. Thank you and have a Happy Hanukkah & Merry Christmas”-M. Flansburg

“I cannot say enough about how much we LOVE our newborn and family pictures taken by Melissa Donaldson. She was so patient throughout the newborn session. She has a perfect balance of personal and professionalism. The love of her job is proven by her beautiful pictures. Melissa is who we will work with for all of our future photo sessions and will be recommended to all of our family and friends.” L. Arroyo

“We have absolutely LOVED working with Melissa Donaldson! We booked her “Watch Me Grow session” and so far, we have completed the maternity and newborn shoots. She has always been very professional and awesome to work with. I was amazed at how patient she was during the newborn shoot and we could not have been happier with how our photos turned out for both. We have since worked with her for a family shoot, which again, turned out fantastic. She has a sincere passion and creative eye for her work and is always displayed through her photos. She will be our family photographer for many years to come!!” H. Cadieux

“I can’t express enough how much we love working with Melissa. She takes her time and makes my family feel relaxed. She is a natural artist. I love how she is always making sure my daughter is safe as well as trying to capture great shots. She also does a great job with communicating with us and working with our special requests.” Shannon S.

“We recently had the fortunate opportunity to work with Melissa Donaldson on a photo shoot with my daughter for a future news anchor portfolio. Her work is truly AMAZING! We were very pleased with the end result. Melissa selected the perfect location for the session and made my daughter feel at complete ease. She spends quality time with her clients. This is a huge plus. We would highly recommend her and will certainly use her for future photography.” Deluca

“I am an out-of-state Auntie that wanted to gift my sister who had just had twins with a newborn photo-session.  For various reasons this did not get done before the babies were born.  My sister and I were delighted when Melissa was able to get us into her schedule before they turned 2weeks old!  Melissa was able to get creative with my sister’s horse saddle and my brother-in-law’s fireman’s uniform.  I was delighted to be able to be Melissa’s assistant in molding the babies into various poses while my sister was able to rest in the recliner chair.  Thank you SOO much, Melissa, for gorgeous pictures of my niece and nephew that stopped this precious moment in time.” Lori Lasher

“Love your work Melissa Donaldson, it truly is in a realm all its own. And you truly made our venue, The Elegant Barn, shine in the few shots that I’ve seen. Would love to see more from your day at the Elegant Barn. Thank you!” The Elegant Barn

“We had an amazing holiday family photo shoot with Melissa this weekend. She was so efficient and such a joy to work with. I would HIGHLY recommend her if you’re considering pictures. Our pictures came out better than I could’ve dreamt of. Thanks again Melissa!!” N. Hughes
