Meet Mr. Love bug … this little one stole my heart, after each and every pose during his one year birthday and cake smash photo shoot, he would run to me with big, big hugs … every time!  Talk about winning your heart, he definitely does just that every time I see him!

He has been one of our Baby Portrait Planers, so we have been photographing him since he was still in mommy’s tummy!  You may remember her gorgeous snowy maternity portrait session last year … she was such a trooper as we drudged through deep piles of snow to capture pure magic during her maternity photo shoot.  Mom is equally as sweet as baby and they are both very near and dear to my heart.  I love to experience the journey of motherhood with my clients as we photograph them from maternity to baby’s first birthday and beyond!

I often refer to this little guy as my baby model, I told mom to call Gerber, he could so be the new Gerber baby!  He has the sweetest disposition, all smiles, giggles and fun … here is one of my many favorites, more to share soon …

Happy Monday!  We are catching up from a busy weekend of non-stop sessions, and wanted to stop by and share a beautiful moment of motherhood.  We always encourage moms and dads to be photographed with their babies and children.  There is so much emotion after waiting 40 long weeks to hold your baby in your arms, and that moment is overwhelmingly amazing.

Motherhood is such an important journey, I adore to capture memories of moms with their children.  These moments are special and unique and babies grow up so, so fast…

sometimes a picture speaks a thousand words, I think this one says:  “I love you” …

We have been receiving a ton of inquiries about our Baby Portrait Plan and what it includes, so we wanted to highlight the details here.  Baby Portrait Planners are expectant moms that wish to capture milestones of baby’s first year.  Our baby plan begins with a pregnancy announcement photo shoot, followed by a gender reveal portrait session, maternity photography, newborn portraits, and milestones of baby’s first year including 4 months, 6 months, 9 months and baby’s first birthday and cake smash portrait session.

In addition, we encourage family portraits a few times throughout the year, and we welcome holiday portraits as well such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, Easter, Valentines and more.  The sessions are unlimited for baby’s first year, so you could even choose monthly milestone photo shoots, if you wish to do so.  As an added bonus, our baby plan incorporates parents and siblings into any portrait session you wish, so your entire immediate family is covered by our baby plan.

We love to spoil our baby planners, so be prepared to receive bonus gifts and goodies throughout the year … lots of surprises along the way!  :)

Every portrait session with us is custom styled to your preference, so each portrait session is beautiful, unique and special.  For a limited time, our Baby Portrait Plan is on promotional pricing … contact us for details.  In the images below, we played with color, utilizing navy and rose accents, we are always happy to custom style your baby portraits to coordinate with baby’s nursery and decor.

I haven’t visited the blog as much as I would like to lately, as our workload has been huge and we are working on multiple big projects at Melissa Treen Photography.  So, we have so much to share as we have had so many babies, mommas, seniors and families in front of our lens in 2017!  It must be the year for boys … we have had so many baby boys in the studio lately!

Since we are so behind in sharing, it’s hard to know where to begin, but we will start with this recent sweet capture of this beautiful baby boy.  We captured so much variety of his little personality throughout his custom newborn photo shoot.  He was wide-awake in a few images, full of smiles and baby giggles in other portraits and fast asleep in many.  We paired him with this sweet teddy bear and the final look just melts my heart!

Sweetness defined…

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.

Isn’t she so pretty!  We met this little doll baby and her parents for a fun 9 month photo shoot outdoors, just outside of the Greensboro area.  She has bright brown eyes, a contagious smile and the cutest little dimples you have ever seen!  Her little personality blossomed throughout the portrait session, and we captured so many smiles, giggles and love.

9 months is such a fun milestone … we capture baby before walking, but old enough to sit so well for so long, making for the perfect photo opportunities.  Here are one of my many favorites of this little lady …

You are expecting … it’s a busy time with so much to do and plan … you are making a list and checking it twice.  You have registered for your baby shower, made extensive lists of all things necessary, picked out baby’s nursery colors, furniture and decor.  You are plannign for each and every step along the way.  Now, it’s time to select a newborn photographer … so what do you need to know?  We have listed some helpful tips on the blog today…


1)  Portfolio – First and foremost, when selecting a newborn photographer, review the photographer’s work … you are hiring an artist, so the art he/she produces speaks volumes, be certain the images speak to you, your style, your desire for quality.  Our blog is a great resource to view examples of our newborn portraiture.

2)  Specialty – Did you know every photographer has a specialty?  While many photographers photograph different types of photographic subjects, most will identify their speciality … and maternity and newborn photographers are a specialized group due to specific training in those areas.  We specialize in maternity, newborn and baby’s first year fine art portraits.

3)  Time Frames – Newborn photographers often limit the number of babies they accept per month by due date, so you may wish to schedule early.

4) Experience – Research to see how long has the photographer been in the newborn photography business?  We opened the doors of our photography business in 2010 and have served clients from all over the Triad and Triangle areas of North Caorlina.

5)  Provided Items – What items are provided during the newborn photo shoot?  We offer access to our massive prop and accessory collection, custom styled for each and every session.

6)  Baby Portrait Plan – Does he/she offer a baby portrait plan and if so what does it entail?  Did you know this is an amazing resource for affordability!  We offer a Baby Portrait Plan that begins with a gender reveal photo shoot and includes and entire year of photography for baby, mom, dad and siblings, meaning UNLIMITED portrait sessions for the immediate family until baby turns one year old!  Here are some popular portrait sessions captured by our Baby Portrait Planners:
