I love when I receive an inquiry for a gift certificate for portraits.  It happens often and I always think it is the most thoughtful gift, the gift of memories!

This dad contacted me wanting to “surprise” his wife with family portraits with their one year twin girls for her birthday!  We met at sunrise at this amazing light-filled field of nature.  These sweet twin girls smiled and giggled throughout the session and we captured amazing family portraits for this family.  You can feel the love when you view their images below…such warmth captured.

I discovered this dreamy location over 8 years ago and it never disappoints.  We met this beautiful mom-to-be and hubby near sunset for her custom styled maternity photo shoot.  She wore a stunning floral crown and a gorgeous flowy, mint maternity gown that was nothing less than amazing to photograph!

Such beauty and love captured during this maternity portrait session, just outside of the Chapel Hill, Burlington area of North Carolina.  These two are so ready to meet their baby and are welcoming parenthood with open arms!  So excited for them both!!!  🙂

It’s a drizzle, dreary Friday morning, with the sunshine nowhere to be found today.  However, it allows for a tiny break in this busy Fall schedule and a chance to catch up with our work load.  So, today is editing. ordering and designing day at the studio!  We need days like this, especially before a crazy busy weekend ahead …

We met this little angel and her family for her 2 year photo shoot.  She has mastered the beautiful close up head shot I always capture for my modeling portfolios.  Perfectly dressed in mustard yellow for a cozy Fall photo shoot, the sunshine glistened around her, highlighting her tiny little ringlets of hair and her eyes, oh these beautiful eyes, they tell such a story …

This baby girl snuggled up for an amazing newborn portrait session.  Mom likes pink, and so do we … so this custom styled newborn photo shoot incorporated many shades of pink in playful ways.

Each and every newborn portrait session we do is uniquely styled in a beautiful way to highlight baby.  Babies grow so fast and this portrait will be a beautiful keepsake of baby’s first week.  This image is one of my favorites from this newborn portrait gallery, and mom loved it too … so she ordered a large canvas of this one … so gorgeous!

Motherhood, is an amazing journey … I have said it a thousand times, but it is so true.  There is something unexplainably overwhelming when you hold your precious baby in your hands after carrying that little one for 40 long weeks, all the while dreaming … imagining and wondering who he will look like, whose personality traits he will have, how big he will be, who he will take after, how much hair he will have, what color his eyes will be, and all the other 5000 thoughts that run through the mind of a mom-to-be.

This moment, the moment of fruition, when all the wait and wondering are over … this is the moment to remember … this is motherhood in all of it’s glory … the wait, the journey of pregnancy, the labor … they are all over and every single second of it was completely worth it because this little boy will call you mommy.

This baby boy is turning one and we celebrated!  We had an outdoor photo shoot planned, but the weather did not cooperate – so we headed to the studio.  SO thankful for our little portrait studio on days like this when weather takes priority.  This little one love the balloons as much as the cake, maybe even more!  He turned around and played with the balloons as soon as he saw them, they entertained him for a good portion of the cake smash.

Once we introduced the cake, it was all over.  He instantly has his hands in it, playing in it like play dough.  Oh the fun he had, icing was everywhere and the studio smelled so good.   🙂

This little fellow visited the studio recently and loved being cuddled up.  We captured beautiful memories of this little love during his newborn photo shoot.

We have been busy this summer photographing expectant moms, babies and families outdoors, in the gorgeous fields of summer.  North Carolina offers such beauty in every season, and summer is one of my favorites to photograph.  We have also welcomed many newborn infants into the studio to capture their first week memories.

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.

Fall is flying by … and the colors of Fall have been nothing short of amazing this year!  Every season is different in North Carolina, and each year nature holds different surprises.  This year, the leaves has turned to the most vibrant beautiful colors … making for spectacular backgrounds for family photo shoots.

We met this sweet one year old baby boy and his mommy at this gorgeous location nestled between Chapel Hill and Greensboro.  We roamed around in the cool, crisp autumn air as we explored the area and captured beautiful images like this one.  Look at those smile, that connection … pure love between mom and baby … such a precious moment to remember…

Change … that’s what is on my heart today.  Time changes things … those tiny babies soon grow up and crawl, walk, start school and graduate high school before you can blink!  My heart has been feeling the tug of change lately as I have had many high school senior portraits this Fall.  I always have such fun photographing seniors, but I also feel the hearts of mommas who are watching their teens grow and spread their wings into new adventures…it’s always a little bittersweet to let go.

Change … we also have experienced many changes at Melissa Treen Photography too!  You may have noticed our lack of blogging and limited posts on social media … the reasons:  it’s our busy season and we are utilizing every ounce of time to shoot, edit, order and deliver portraits to our clients AND we have also had a huge change within our staffing.  I have a few part-time assistants that assist in different areas and we are saying goodbye to one of them.  Our production assistant (my daughter), who has worked so hard behind the scenes to pull things together, work on special products, social media, marketing and filling so many other holes around the studio… has acquired a full-time job in her area of study.  She will be greatly missed, but I couldn’t be more happy or proud of her as she begins her new adventure!  We wish her much success in her new journey!

So, with that in mind, we are evaluating the possibility of offering a new job opportunity to fill her position.  If you know someone that may be a good fit, email me … I’d love to chat!

We met this beautiful high school senior in the gorgeous sunset hour at one of our favorite locations.  Her portraits are stunning…here’s a peek from her portrait session…
