Recently, I had the pleasure of documenting a heartwarming mini photo session with Melissa and her family. They ACTUALLY drove all the way from Douglas, AZ for a mini session! My mind is completely blown. Thanks so much for your support! 

Melissa is such a wonderful human being, inside and out. Her family shines both in front of the camera and behind it, as evident from her captivating Instagram account filled with delightful adventures featuring her daughters. Here are some unforgettable images from our special session at Life Under the Oaks Lavender Farm.

Since Melissa is a photographer too, she truly understands the importance of documenting life’s moments. She has such a creative eye and love for capturing life’s fleeting moments, so we hit it off right away. 

A visit to her personal Instagram account not only offers a glimpse into her own captivating adventures with her daughters but also serves as a source of inspiration and appreciation for the art of photography.

What truly amazed me about Melissa and her family was their unwavering dedication to capturing their precious memories. Traveling over two hours from Douglas, AZ, they demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to creating lasting keepsakes. Their excitement made the experience all the more special, especially when the girls saw the Lavender field!

Melissa’s daughters totally stole the show. Their boundless enthusiasm, infectious energy, and radiant smiles created an atmosphere brimming with joy. 

While Charlie, the younger one, grew a bit weary towards the end, her genuine emotions added an authentic touch to the images we captured. These candid moments beautifully showcased the real connections and tender love within this incredible family.

Every year, I look forward to my Life Under the Oaks Lavender Farm sessions, and this is why. It seemed like every photo we took was a winner, and I couldn’t have asked for a better session. This family was so adorable together!

Melissa’s innate talent for posing and her ability to create a relaxed atmosphere contributed to the natural and effortless beauty of each shot. From playful interactions to heartfelt embraces, we preserved so many moments of connection that will be cherished for generations to come.

I loved every second of this family photo mini session! If you seek inspiration, heartfelt moments, and a genuine appreciation for family bonds, Melissa’s Instagram account is an absolute must-follow. Let’s show her some love!
