We have very big things planned on the horizon and we can’t wait to share!  We have been photographing babies from all over the Triad since 2010 and have become a trusted choice baby photographer in the Burlington, Greensboro. Chapel Hill, High Point and Winston Salem areas.  We are honored to have client travel from up to two hours away for our organic approach to newborn photography.  It is always a delight to meet these sweet families and capture their journey.  These memories can live on long after we forget just how tiny she really was those first days … babies grow and change but memories are forever.



It was another busy weekend and yesterday went by like a huge blur … Mondays are always so full, so I am taking a minute to hop on the blog this morning and share one of my very favorite products we offer.  Our Fine Art Album is second to none … it is exquisite and there aren’t enough words to define how it truly represents your portraits in such a beautiful way.  There are many custom options for the cover, including a variety of color options.  This family chose the sage green cover and it is one of my favorites!

The inside offers thick pages, as we focus on quality in our product offerings.  The tones of the portraits are enhanced by the special selection of premium paper choices from our professional portrait lab.  One of the things I adore about this album is the ability to showcase an image across the seam to span across two pages.  This makes such a statement and is a great way to highlight a few favorite images throughout the album.  Albums can vary in page number if you chose, our typical design allows for 20 pages for our client albums.

Each album is custom designed.  Clients are welcome to visit our West Burlington Portrait Studio and sit in and collaborate throughout the design process, or we can design it completely.  Either way, clients always review the final product before it is sent to our professional image lab for production.

Since these albums are custom designed, we relish in the opportunity to create a special keepsake for our clients.  We often ask for their favorite quote, bible verse, or poem to include within the pages of this gorgeous album, allowing for such a meaningful memory to hold onto as the pages of this album turn over the years.

And let me mention quality … this album is the premium album offered, it is the very same album ordered in high-end wedding packages.  To say it is the best-of-the-best is an understatement.  To see this album in person makes all the difference.  The images seem to jump off the pages and evoke such emotion … our fine art album is a treasure and one of our most requested products from our clientele.

Enjoy  a little peek from our fine art album from this recent newborn baby portrait session …

I was reading an article last night that had the “top 5 ideas for what to buy mom for Mother’s Day”, and I have to say I was not surprised that a portrait session was at the top of the list.  The gift of memories is such a thoughtful gift and one we experience often.  More and more I have friends, family members, husbands and others purchasing photo shoots for a loved one.

This sweet baby girl enjoyed a gifted newborn portrait session, and mom was completely overjoyed to receive this amazing gift!  I can’t begin to tell you how important it is to moms to document their special seasons of life.  Mommies carry their babies for 40 long weeks …  so much anticipation, and the bond that develops, the love that consumes them …it’s all so overwhelming.  This newborn portrait session allowed her the opportunity to capture these moments of life with her new baby girl and to hold onto these memories for all time.  She can look back years from now and remember these sweet moments and her precious friend that gifted her this opportunity.

And look how tiny this sweet baby girl is … newborn days pass so quickly, baby grows and changes so fast … capturing these moments is amazing …


Since 2010, Melissa Treen Photography has been North Carolina’s trusted photographer of newbron, baby, maternity, family, child, teen, high school senior pictures, model comp cards, professional headshots and commercial photography , serving Greensboro, High Point, Mebane, Burlington, Winston Salem, Kernersville, Summerfield, Browns Summit, Stokesdale, Madison, Oak Ridge, New Garden, Whitsett, Graham, Gibsonville, Asheville, Elon, Durham, Chapel Hill and other areas of NC.



Things have been so busy in and out of the studio and we have big plans underway, which we will soon share.  For now, we have been scheduling outdoor family portraits and high school senior pictures during our Teen Portrait Event, in addition to photographing so many beautiful expectant mommies and beautiful newborn babies.

This sweet girl visited us around one week of age and she was the sweetest!  Mom brought along this handmade blank keepsake and the colors and textures photographed amazingly!  It’s always extra special to incorporate family treasures into your custom styled portrait session.  This makes for memories upon memories when you look back at these portraits years from now to see how tiny your baby girl was then and also the special keepsake she was photographed with … priceless.




The sweet slumber of newborns is such a short season … after just a few weeks, baby will awaken more and more to interact, coo and play.  This is why we schedule our custom styled newborn portrait sessions early … usually within the first week after birth.

Babies tend to sleep so much better during this timeframe and it allows us to capture those sweet, cuddly newborn memories for you to treasure.  You will look back at these beautiful newbron portraits one day and wonder how she was ever that tiny?  Time flies, especially during baby’s first year.  There are so many milestones and achievements … so much growth occurs between newbron and baby’s first birthday.  Some of my favorite milestones to capture for clients are: newborn (beautiful sleepy portraits highlighting the newness of baby), 4 months (when baby has mastered tummy time and we capture gorgeous head shots during this photo shoot), 6-7 months (when baby sits independently and we can utilize so may fun “sitting” props), 9 months (I love this milestone … one of my very favorites … baby can pull up and send but usually isn’t walking yet, which makes for perfect portraits to see how tall baby has grown), and of course the fabulous first birthday (amazing birthday portraits, time for family photos too and ending with the fun cake smash which I love to do in-studio and decorate for themes…so fun!).

The first year is an adventure and with our Bbay Portrait Plan, you won’t miss a minute of the journey.  It begins with maternity portraits and offers unlimited portrait sessions through baby’s first birthday!  You chose how often you wish to have portraits and there are beautiful benefits to being one of our loyal baby planners, inquire for details.
