It was a busy weekend, full of fall photography.  We have been in and out of the studio photographing beautiful babies, expectant mommies, teens and families.

Over the weekend, we had lunch at a local restaurant … as we were leaving, my daughter heard someone say, “she does babies, that’s the local baby photographer.”  She heard them talking and told me I was famous!  I giggled, and told her I was far from famous, but was honored to be known for my work with babies in the community.  I have had the delight of photographing babies and families in North Carolina over the past 7 years, and am ever so grateful for this job that I adore!  It is a pleasure to capture memories for families and share in their journeys of parenthood.

We met one of our little baby portrait planners for this gorgeous outdoor portrait session at this beautiful location between Chapel Hill and Greensboro North Carolina.  We had dreamy light at sunset and captured amazing 6 month portraits of baby (and mommy too, stay tuned for sweet mom and baby portraits … we will share soon).

Baby’s bright blue eyes are stunning and her sweet little personality shines through every image.  We custom styled this portrait session from our baby style closet, available to all of our baby portrait planners.  We have a selection of the latest and greatest wardrobe options that are tried and true … tested to photograph beautifully.  Here are just a few favorites, more to share soon …



Melissa Treen Photography is the Triad and Triangle’s trusted photographer of maternity, baby and family portraits.


Ten tiny fingers, so delicately made … capturing tiny details like this are what memories are made of … new babies are little, with little details and tiny features … but babies grow so quickly and those tiny details that are so fresh and so new quickly change and grow, this is why newborn portrait photography is so important.

Trust your newborn memories to a photographer that specializes in newborn baby fine art.  You will appreciate your decision to invest in these precious moments throughout the years as you watch your little princess grow.  Quality portraits are a treasure.

Our approach to newborn photography is an organic one … we select the finest backdrops, props and accessories to create an organic, beautiful, timeless style for your portraits.

Despite Hurricane Matthew, we were able to complete some of our gorgeous family photography sessions this weekend, with some creative scheduling.  The light was dreamy and the golden glow added warmth to their family portraits.  This sweet family drove for over an hour away to capture these memories and we captured magic!  This baby boy was full of fun & smiles and those bright blue eyes are amazing!

Mom coordinated the perfect fall attire for the session.  We captured plenty of love in these images, snuggles with mom and dad and sweet kisses.  Here are just a few of my favorites …

I met this gorgeous mom-to-be at this amazing location and we played in the sunlight until the sun set.  Her maternity portraits are full of sweet smiles, beautiful light, perfect wardrobe selections and natural beauty.  I adore this image of her gazing at her tummy with such a sweet expression, relishing this moment and embracing her sweet baby boy.

sweet slumbering new baby photography

Newborn photography has evolved into a world all it’s own today.  Those sweet, snugly little babies pictured sleeping so perfectly are the images that moms hold close to their hearts.  These images highlight the newness of this special season of life.

The opportunity to capture these newborn memories is best defined as the first ten days after birth.  True newborn moments pass quickly as baby’s sleep patterns and appearance change.  The key to scheduling your newborn portrait photography session is to schedule it early.  We accept a limited number of newborns per week, so most clients reserve their custom newborn photography session while still pregnant.

Ideally, during the 2nd trimester of pregnancy is an optimal time to contact us as it allows plenty of time to place you on our schedule.  Once you get closer to your due date, simply touch base with us to let us know of any plans such as inducement or a planned C-section.  Once you deliver, contact us within 48 hours to finalize your session date.  It’s easy & simply to get started, just email us & we will instruct you on how to reserve your session.

It’s not an accident that I specialize in maternity and newborn photography.

It is purposeful.

It is by choice.

It is because as a mother, these images truly speak to my heart.

There is something so overwhelming about the love a mother has in her heart for her child.  These are moments worthy of capturing and moments to treasure.

Such love witnessed here, as mommy holds her tiny baby in her arms after 9 long months… this moment is one she has waited for, dreamed of and this moment is her moment to relish in this little miracle…

this is motherhood…

Family, it is the cornerstone of all that we are … and it was an honor to incorporate mom and sister into this mommy-to-be’s maternity portrait session.  All of these ladies will play a very special role in this baby girl’s life.  How blessed she is to be surrounded with so much love! Excited to meet her soon … and more to share from this gorgeous maternity photo shoot soon, stay tuned …




Motherhood is an amazing season of life and capturing expectant mommies is one of my very favorite parts of my job!  There is such beauty in the anticipation of a mommy-to-be.  A mother begins bonding with her child in a special way the moment she learns she is expecting.  That bond is a beautiful thing to capture as she longs for the moment she holds this tiny miracle in her arms.  The emotion captured in a maternity portrait session is overwhelming and makes for stunning portraits that speak to your heart.
