I've photographed hundreds of mothers and babies since I opened my business in 2012.
Maternity and newborn photography is my specialty and primary focus and not just one of many photography styles I offer.
Because of this, I have all the experience and equipment you could possibly need on hand to give you a comfortable, easy, and worry free session.
The end result is more than just perfect photographs.
It’s being able to take something completely off your to-do list during a time when everything feels more hectic than it should be.
Working together, I can ensure you receive a top-notch session from the first phone call to the final products in your hand.
....a boutique and stress free experience you just can’t get anywhere else.
As a mother and “Nay-nay”, I consider my family my legacy and I know just how fast time flies by.
That baby bump and those tiny toes & sweet smiles turn into big kids faster than we can ever imagine while you’re in the thick of daily life.
As your photographer, I’m here to help you freeze time- for a glorious moment- so you will always be able to go back and reminisce about this special season of your life.
With these photographs, you will have the beginnings of your meaningful collection of family heirlooms which will last for generations to come.

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.

Luckily for you, that means that I will always be on the top of my game. You can feel confident you have someone you can trust behind the camera to deliver the perfect photographs you desire.
My most recent in person class was with Amy McDaniel of Dew Drops Photography. Her style is very similar to mine and is best described as timeless and natural.
In person training with Ana Brandt, one of the most recognized newborn photographers in the world, Tustin, CA. I started to invest in an assortment of classes to ensure I was at the top of the game when it came to both posing newborns and the safety aspects which may arise.
One-on-one training, Mary Macomber of Pebbles and Polka Dots, Worcester, M.
My time with her was my true “ah-ha!” moment that made me realize this was where I wanted to focus my time, energy and talents.
Started my photography business working out of my home but was able to open my studio two years later.
Photography Institute in San Francisco, CA where I received my foundation in all things photography and camera.
