Happy Friday!

And speaking of happy…

this tiny one week old baby girl melted our hearts during her custom styled newborn photo shoot when she provided so many smiles for the camera!

She was a petite bundle of sweet goodness … sleeping so perfectly for us throughout her newborn portrait session.  Her is one of her many smiles she shared with us … so precious!


About the photographer …  Melissa Treen Photography has been serving the Greensboro, Burlington, High Point, Chapel Hill, Winston Salem areas of North Carolina since 2010, providing beautiful, organic styled newborn baby portrait sessions, baby’s first year of milestones, baby’s first birthday, maternity, pregnancy, motherhood, child, family and high school senior portrait photography sessions.


Senior portraits are some of my very favorite sessions!  I have always loved capturing beautiful portraits for high school seniors … the senior year is such an exciting time of adventure and change for a student … opportunities abound, a new journey begins and the world awaits.

For a senior, this is the beginning of an amazing new, fresh start into the world.  So, capturing these moments for a high school senior means the world to them.  I have always recognized that and desired to capture this time for them in a special and unique way, highlighting their natural beauty, personality and sense of style.

However, something changed for me as a photographer since having a senior myself a few years back.  I have discovered a passion to highlight this special season of life … for the senior and for mom!  The many reasons that the senior year is so important to the senior are evident, but it wasn’t until I walked in the shoes of my fellow moms of high school seniors that I truly understood what this moment means to a family.

The senior year is a year of growth, for the student and the family.  This is the last year before everything changes …

Many times, high school seniors graduate and leave home to begin college.  This changes the dynamic of the family in so many ways, and while parents are so proud of the accomplishments of their child, it’s always a little bittersweet to let them go.  It tugs on your heart, as a mom, to see that child that you have held so close for so long … be so far away.  You know you have done your very best to prepare her for all that awaits, but letting go is never easy.

So, after my daughter’s graduation, I have realized that senior portraits not only capture this exciting, amazing time for a high school senior, but they also capture beautiful memories for mom to hold onto as her world changes.

I have said it before, but I will say it again … I am ever so grateful for this blessing I call a job … so thankful to meet beautiful families and capture their journey; providing not only gorgeous art for their walls, but also priceless memories for their hearts.

This little love arrived to the studio around one week old …. so beautiful and so tiny.  She cuddled into sleepy time and we captured beautiful newborn portraits.  We created an organic, feminine style to her session, complete with soft, pastel pinks, rosettes, and creamy neutrals.

Her family has waited so long for her arrival and she is welcomed by such special parents and the best big brother.  She is such a blessing to this sweet family and she is blessed to be part of such a loving family.  She already has big brother’s heart … it was so special to see his love for her throughout her newborn photo session…he is so excited to be a big brother!

There is something so beautiful about an organic styled newborn portrait session.   The natural colors and tones compliment the newness of baby.

We welcomed this little love to the studio recently for his newborn portrait session.  He is the newest addition to one of our favorite families that we have been photographing over the past 4 years, making them now a family of 5!   They are totally smitten with him … big brother and big sister are so sweet with him and mom and dad are over the moon in love!  This is one blessed baby to be part of such an amazing family.

We posed him delicately in this fur filled basket, and allowed his little toes to peek out … I love showcasing those tiny baby toes!!!  🙂

Isn’t he gorgeous … and look at that beautiful full head of hair!!!  So handsome  🙂

We were delighted to capture beautiful senior portraits for this young lady. She has the sweetest spirt and is a joy to be around.


My current situation:  looking at the storm raging outside my office window.  Summer is here and with heat comes the summer storm season, which has been reeking havoc on outdoor portrait schedule.  Thankful to have been able to re-schedule all rained out sessions thus far.  We just got back to the studio after a day of babies, while welcoming our newest neighbor Baby + Co.  It was a fun day and we met so many expectant mommies, dads siblings and babies too!

We are working hard behind the scenes on our Teen Portrait Event – scheduled for July 15th  – and it is going to be simply amazing!  It is open to teens, pre-teens, tweens, and young adults.  We are providing hair & makeup by our stylist Erica and the package include digital images as well!  We have just a few spots left and trust me, you won’t want to miss this!  We will be sharing a sneak peek at some of the  things we have planned throughout next week on Instagram, so head on over and follow us there to get the latest details!

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.

Meet Mr. Bright Eyes!  He arrived a bit earlier than his due date much to everyone’s surprise, but he was eager to join his sweet parents who adore him!

He had the most gorgeous wide-eyed closeups during his newborn portrait session.  He posed perfectly for the camera and focused right on the lens, creating amazing close-ups that melted mom and dad’s hearts.  Isn’t he precious?

We custom style his organic newborn portrait session and added in a touch of pastel yellow and soft grey to complete the look and he looks so handsome!
