“Melissa took our family photos this summer and we were so pleased with how the pictures turned out! She photographed all 11 of us and took the time to do couples pictures as well as grandparent shots. She caught the real smiles of our children and captured the beauty of Granite Mountain as well! Her work is the perfect blend of professionalism and personality. I highly recommend Melissa to anyone!”

"I highly recommend Melissa Byrne as your photographer!! Melissa has an amazing eye for her photographic subjects. She did a shoot for my granddaughter’s graduation pictures and we couldn’t have been more pleased.  Melissa took the time prior to our scheduled day of photos to scout out a few areas for the best background shots, as we wanted outdoor scenes. She was amazing, so patient and directed poses and stances that turned out fabulous! Melissa is a pro!!! She is our go to for any future needs!"

THANK YOU THANK YOU Melissa!  You were absolutely wonderful to work with for our daughter's scholarship video and senior photos!   You had an almost mystical ability to capture her inner beauty and reflect her personality while creating such stunning images!  You were so incredible to work with, you made it look easy but put in many hours of work to get those perfect shots.  We appreciate you and your gift of photography and look forward to working with you again next year when our younger daughter graduates...she has already asked for you!!! 
With great gratitude,

We had an amazing experience. My girls had so much fun. They felt very comfortable. My oldest has autism and has a hard time with new places and new people. She was safe and at home at her studio and for the first time we got beautiful shots of her smiling and enjoying herself. Pictures came out amazing. We are so thankful. Thank you. We will cherish these photos for years.

We had a wonderful experience capturing the moments of our children with Melissa. She did an excellent job being patient with our 2 and 4 year old during their session, she was silly and really made them giggle and smile in their photos. Very fun! Lots of backdrops to choose from and props. I would highly recommend for any photography needs.

We had a great first professional studio shoot with our toddler and Melissa! Melissa has a nice calm energy about her and was very understanding of my toddler and her energy. Both the experience and photos were great! Would definitely recommended, and use, Melissa in the future.

Melissa did a FANTASTIC job at our maternity photoshoot! Not only did she make me feel beautiful, but she incorporated my older child in a way that made him feel included without getting annoyed at how bored he was getting. She’s AMAZING with capturing beautiful moments with wiggly kids, and coming up with creative poses that turn into magic.
I will 100% book with her again!!

Melissa did an outstanding job on our senior portraits! Very thorough, did both outside and in-studio shots, and took time to really capture personality...and understand what style we were looking for. Very skilled photographer, too, setting up shots and ensuring lighting was ideal. Highly recommend! The photos turned out amazing and we love them!
