My family's need for family photos  was so long over due, and Melissa came to our rescue capturing our most perfect moments! I was worried as to how my son would do out in the heat and trying to get him to stay still is like telling him not to breath, physically impossible! But Melissa took amazing control of every situation and brought out our best. What a special experience it was to be photographed by such a talented artist!

Until our next photo worthy chapter, Melissa!

Thanks so much!


I cannot say enough about Melissa Ivy! Somehow in the chaos of our wedding day our photographer missed getting some essential photos with me and my parents. I was heartbroken after realizing what happened, but I'm so thankful that Melissa was there to fill in the gaps! My parents and I dressed up in our fancy wedding clothes a did a mini session with Melissa. She was able to capture some AMAZING shots of us that I will always cherish. Her infectious laugh makes you feel right at ease and her unique style of photography helps her capture the 'real' moments. I look forward to having Melissa be our family photographer for a long time! Thanks again Melissa! 


So, it's the day of family pictures and all you ask is that it doesn't rain and the kids cooperate enough for one GOOD family photo. Yet, of course it decided to rain the morning of our photo sesh, and us dry-heat loving Arizonans had to tackle humidity and lots of it. But no one would know the sweat storm we tackled that evening looking at these absolutely amazing photos Melissa captured of our family. We were hot and really sweaty, but dang she made us look good. She was so good at keeping my kiddos engaged and capturing their sweet personalities in the process. But what really touched me was her attention to the importance the duo called mom and dad. She made sure to get several beautiful shots of my husband and I together, which I absolutely love. And it was so nice since we're rarely able to get a good photo of just the two of us. I will definitely be using Melissa for all our future photos. It doesn't hurt that she's also a pretty awesome person, with a witty sense of humor. I just love her! And her photos!
