Meet the Photographers

Melissa has been doing our family’s photos for almost 9 years now and I wouldn’t use anyone else. She is personable, creative and gets the photos back to us in a timely manner. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone!

Melissa from Candid Keepsakes was amazing to work with. She is so kind and helped guide our family into poses. She was amazing with our kiddos. The weather did not cooperate for the entire session but she got tons of great photos and made it extremely hard to pick out photos for printing. Her turnaround time was so fast! I highly recommend working with Candid Keepsakes. You won’t regret it.

Thank you Candid Keepsakes and Melissa for taking such fabulous pictures of my granddaughters, Abriel and Lena and The Dude, Spencer’s dog!! Not many photographers could have handled this group! The pictures will be treasured for a lifetime!

Melissa is AMAZING. My husband and I wanted some photos done for our pregnancy. She took the time to meet with me beforehand to go over specifics and what our vision was. She asked all the right questions. When we did the photo shoot at our home she made sure everything was perfect. She even took the time to make sure our little dog was in a few photos. I am no professional model by any means so I was nervous on how I would look once the photos were ready. I have to say that she made me look and feel beautiful. She captured me and my husband just as I visioned. This is a precious time for us and having the right photographer to take these once in a lifetime photographs was extremely important to me. We are so glad we hired Melissa. We were so impressed with her and her skills that we booked her again so she can capture our little girl once she is born. I am so happy that we found Melissa because now we have our family photographer.
