We hinted earlier in the week that we had BIG NEWS coming … here is one of our few surprises…

we have a new website, please visit www.melissatreen.com for all the latest!

This new website is nothing short of a labor of love.  We began working on it last year, and with nearly 8 years of photography to sort through to chose just the right images, and with all the content produced, it has taken countless days, months and years to complete this project.  I am ever so grateful to my beautiful daughter who worked alongside me many, many days in an effort to complete some of the finishing touches to the site.  I couldn’t have done it without her!

Below is the sweetest little man, celebrating his first birthday and he is all smiles!  He has the cutest little dimples too!  And wait until you see him with his birthday cake … oh my, he was all about his cake!  🙂

What happens when you add a beautiful baby girl + the sweetest little baby bonnet + a smocked baby dress + an adorable pink carriage + the biggest giggle ever  …. it = magic!

We met this Baby Portrait Plan family to capture family portraits along with baby’s 6 month “sitting” milestone.

Weather had been unpredictable and nature was just beginning to be in full bloom in North Carolina.  Location is always something I strive to customize for each client.  Locations can really portraits so beautiful if chosen carefully.  When choosing a location, there are so many factors involved, the “must” for me is always lighting.  I love to shoot in dreamy sunlight and that sunlight changes with every season.  I have so many locations scouted, and find more almost daily!  This location I knew had amazing light, but I also knew it was a little tricky and there was definitely the perfect window of time to capture the look I was going for in this session.

We met under a canopy of weeping willows, dreamy light filtered through the trees and the end result was dreamy, sun-lit family portraits.  Today I’m sharing a favorite of baby girl, but this entire family portrait session was breath-taking, wiat until you see big borhter and the beautiful parent portraits.  They melt my heart! 🙂

So many of my Baby Portrait Planners have celebrated first birthdays lately!  It is an honor to watch these babies grow and to grow with their families.  Many clients become friends along the journey, and this family is one of those that are near and dear to my heart.  Have I mentioned lately…I love this job, I have the best clients in the world and I adore capturing beautiful memories for families.

This little one arrived in the studio perfectly dressed!  Mom always dresses this little man so adorable for his milestone baby portrait sessions, as his first birthday portrait session was no exception.  She also brought this birthday banner with his name on it, and it coordinated with this outfit.  We captured so much goodness during his birthday photo shoot, many outfits and props, here are just a few favorites for now… and wait until you see what we did for the cake smash … so fun!!!

First birthday photography with Melissa Treen Photography begins with birthday portraits, we usually photograph baby in several outfits and with several props.  We offer in-studio birthday portraits or outdoors, depending on the forecast and your preference.  After we capture traditional one year portraits, we begin setting up for the fun … cake smash photos!  For most babies, this is their first introduction to cake, so the reaction is always unpredictable.  One thing I have learned over the years of doing cake smash sessions, baby either LOVES it or hates it, usually no in-between.  We will share this baby’s cake smash soon, but here’s a hint:  he LOVED it!!!  🙂


One week old and  ever so precious!  Oh, how I adore this job of mine.  Operating a small business is a ton of work, long hours, massive deadlines, extreme dedication; but capturing moments like this one makes it all worth it!

This sweet baby arrived at the studio ready to sleep and we were ready to photograph every tiny details, from this gorgeous head of curls to those ten tiny fingers and delicate little eyelashes … the newness of baby is a special season that goes by so quickly.  Often, baby’s first year seems like a blur, one milestone after another … so it so important to have quality professional portraits that capture baby’s first days.  They will forever hold a special place in your heart.
