From planning your session through guiding you on where & how to hang your artwork, I am there with you through every step of the process. You're in great hands.

If you’re looking for a kind, patient and gifted photographer for any occasion look no more. Melinda was very gentle and patient with my newborn and paid attention to every detail. Her products are of top quality and you’ll end up wanting to buy everything she has to offer. We live two hours away and it was worth the drive. We can’t wait to return for more pictures.

We love Melinda Gilmore Photography. Melinda captures the sweetest moments for our family. Not only are her pictures beautiful but the overall experience is so much fun. She makes sure to have everything set up and ready to go for each session and has everything you need there at her studio. Everything is so clean and I can tell she puts in so much time preparing for the session. 100% recommend her.

Melinda is a fantastic photographer, she cared for my girls so well during our sessions. She was extremely professional and my family felt safe and so comfortable in her studio. She had the magic touch because both of my babies did so wonderful during our sessions with her. Melinda’s work is truly beautiful and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my most precious memories!

When I first spoke to Melinda about photographing Chandler, she asked about our family and our background. I shared with her that Chandler was not our firstborn; she has a sister in Heaven who was born pre-term and did not survive. Melinda took one of Chandler’s photos and created a beautiful rainbow above her to honor her connection to her sister and her place as our “rainbow baby.” We are so grateful to Melinda for capturing our sweet little Chandler at such a precious time! It seems like she is growing so fast right before our eyes!
