{Family In The Woods}

I apologize if you guys aren't enjoying my little peaks into the sessions I've been doing lately. Word of mouth is the best business, and putting it out there spreads the word. Plus I keep getting these gorgeous mamas and their beautiful children so it's hard not to share! It's neat to meet with families and see what their dynamic is like. It's refreshing at times. This beautiful couple clearly has the purest love and knows what they're doing when it comes to their boys. It's fun to watch the dads step up and be all in with pictures. These sweet boys are a testament to their parents and their loving spirit. I loved my short time with their family this past weekend. <3

My dear friend is having her baby soon and I am more than excited to capture the first moments they welcome her into the world and to get some newborn shots!!
I've had several people inquire about pricing and availability, you can always shoot me an email at melissabriggs@sbcglobal.net or you can always find me here.

{Luce's 6 Month Photos}

As I'm sure you all know by now, I've been dabbling in photography. I love being able to capture the 
day to day moments and even the milestones in my children's lives. I love that I enjoy studying, reading and learning all about it. I have SO much to learn, I'm pretty sure it's a creative process and a subject that you never stop learning about, but I feel like I've come a long way even in just a few months. I can't imagine what I'll do if I keep practicing and learning. Which I fully intend to do. I promised myself that I'll push any self-doubt aside and persevere. I won't let myself be self-conscious, I will put myself out there and keep thriving to be better. 
Luce will be 6 months old in a matter of days, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to document her being half a year old. I'll still do her 6 month update and photo later this week. That will have all her amazing stats and details. There's a lot!
For this shoot I DIY'd a teepee for her and gathered some items from her room and set up camp in the woods. Of course she fought her morning nap, so she wasn't exactly happy about taking pictures (ha!), but she's still cute and I still love the setup. She warmed up to us at the end. She really just needed her daddy there to make her smile, but he was working hard of course.
I'm considering doing some teepee mini sessions if there's enough interest. We can even adjust it for fall pics, I'll do that for Luce regardless. If I really get enough interest I'll make a boy teepee for all my boy mommas! I need one for Henry anyway. 😉 And show of hands for interest in a teepee tutorial blog. Let me know if you guys want me to blog it or not!

{At Home With Us}

When your friend is putting herself out there in the photography world, like yourself, and asks you to help out by being models, you oblige. Because like I keep saying, practice makes perfect! Friends helping friends, pushing one another and encouraging one another is what this world needs more of! Amy is the same friend who helped me bring my Tree Farm photoshoot to life last year. I knew exactly what I wanted, I just needed a photographer. They turned out to be some of my favorite photos. 
I loved the idea of a Lifestyle shoot, because let's face it, this is us in our truest form these days. We're always at home, always in comfy clothes and always playing with the kiddos. This is what life is about once you have kiddos-at least while your kiddos are small. PJs, cookies in the oven and abundant laughter. Sometimes it can feel a little mundane, but one day we'll look back and realize that these were the good days. <3
