Nest Family Portraiture began simply because time passes way too quickly. There have been countless times throughout my life where I wished a moment could last much, much longer. As a new mom myself, it amazes me how time flies, and in what feels like the blink of an eye, I will have a one year old!  I wish I could “freeze” all those special moments- first laughs, first teeth, first steps, first “mamas” and first “dadas.”  After failed attempts at creating a ’TIME STOP’ button (it was way too hard! LOL) I discovered the closest thing to it—preserving precious memories through beautiful photographs.

Hello there!

Hi I’m Melissa, the happy smiling face behind the camera.  I love that my job allows me to get to know so many amazing families. When I see their little ones grow, I’m right there sharing in the excitement with them! Seeing the immense love families share warms my hearts and constantly reminds me why I are so obsessed with what I do!


Children grow so fast that it’s hard to keep up and while the journey of watching them learn and grow is absolutely priceless, it’s totally expected to have that, “But... I want them to stay like this forever!” feeling.


I’m so excited to meet you and create something that will bring a smile to your face years and years from now.

Awesome! Thanks for your message, we look forward to talking with you!
