Michigan Newborn Photographer | Serena’s Newborn Session | Metro Detroit Newborn Photographer

Michigan Newborn Photographer

  Serena was born 12-20-17 , weighed 5 pounds 11 ounces and was 19 inches long.  She was just under 8 pounds and was 5 weeks old when she came in for her newborn photo session.

She really wanted to stay awake for her entire session and I LOVE her awake shots!

Caught her little tongue sticking out!



She looks SO pretty in pink!


She finally fell asleep with the warmth of the studio, a full belly and the soothing sounds of my white noise machine, she really had no choice.

After I got her wrapped up, we got some more amazing shots with some adorable props.







I typically like to see newborns between 5-14 days new, but it is possible to get beautiful newborn images with older babies too!

Metro Detroit Newborn Baby Photographer-Rowan’s Newborn Photography Session

Metro Detroit Newborn Baby Photographer


Meet Rowan Joseph, the first boy and the first baby of 2018 in the studio!

Rowan was super sleepy, and for the first baby of 2018, he was so perfect for me!  He is such a cutie!  I definitely could have kept him….and asked, but his family likes him.   He decided to make his grand appearance just two days after the maternity session!  He was such a super chill baby and we breezed through his session.



Those lips!


Big Sister Alyssa loves her baby brother







Lots of smiles!


I can’t wait to see this family again soon!

Birmingham Michigan Newborn Baby Photos | Evelyn Ruth’s Newborn Photo Session Sneak Peek

Newborn Baby Photos

The saying “And though she be but little, she is fierce” describes my littlest client of the year (so far!) perfectly!

Miss Evelyn Ruth, my second baby of 2018 and first girl of the year, was born weighing 5 pounds and 2 ounces.  She is proof that great things come in small packages.  She was very particular on where she wanted her arms, and I finally won after much coaxing and bonding over a bottle.  She did amazing for her first photo shoot!


P.S.  She had the sweetest little button nose and cutest lips!




I would LOVE to photograph your sweet little bundle!

Newborn Baby Boy Sneak Peek | Rowan Joseph | Metro Detroit Newborn Photos

Newborn baby boy, Rowan, was the first newborn baby boy AND the first newborn in 2018 for Melissa Anne Photography!

And he was seriously the BEST baby.  He not only slept through his entire session, even through outfit changes, but he smiled constantly!



It’s always best to reserve your due date in advance, as my schedule fills up quickly, but if you have already given birth, that’s okay too!

Troy Newborn Photographer-Declan’s Newborn Photography Session

Declan’s newborn photography session was amazing.  He was such a sweetheart and so snuggly!  I loved his session so much.  He let me do many different poses and we even incorporated some cool football poses.  He was super smiley and made my job easy!  I could have kept him all day!

I love styling my newborn photography sessions to incorporate special items, sports, themes, etc.  in my newborn photo sessions!  It makes them so fun and unique.

Birmingham Family Photographer-Raymo Family Photography Session at Quarton Lake Park

The Raymo Family was so much fun!  We had an amazing and fun session at one of my favorite spots in Birmingham!  We had great weather and enough fall color to make the background beautiful.

These kids were just a blast to photograph!   Fall is one of my most favorite times of the year to do family photos and it is also the most popular time of the year for photos.  You can see why.  The colors photograph beautifully and I love the outfits my clients choose too.  I just LOVE Mom’s dress and the colors in little sister’s dress that pulls everything together.

I love how they included their dog in the session as well.  You can really tell how much they love him, and each other!

Troy Photographer-Lachlan’s Cake Smash Photography Sessions

Cake smash photography sessions are sweet, a little messy and my favorite, especially when the subject is sweeter than the cake!

I can’t believe this little sweet guy is already 1 year old!  I first met Lachlan at his newborn session and fell in love with him and his parents!  I was so lucky to have photographed his a few times over this year and he is always so sweet and we always get the most adorable shots!

I absolutely LOVE the blue and gold his Momma chose for his cake smash session!

I also LOVE his little outfit for his one year portraits!  EKKKK!  Lachlan is stylin’!

Birmingham Newborn Baby Photographer-Sterling Maximus’s Newborn Photography Session

I love being a newborn baby photographer and with adorable clients like Sterling Maximus, it makes my job so fun and easy!

This little guy was absolutely adorable!  He really loved being wrapped AND having his head rubbed…. but he didn’t like waiting to eat!

Once he had a full tummy again, he let me continue, and we got some adorable poses, including Harry Potter which was requested by Mom & Dad!

I really love the photos of baby Sterling with his Mom & Dad.  You can just see the love they have for him!

Oxford Michigan Senior Photos | Amanda Morrison | Melissa Anne Photography

We had a absolutely gorgeous day for Amanda’s senior photos!

Our first location was at awesome graffiti walls in Detroit!  Amanda brought her lizard with her to join in along with her friend, Mom and 2 special doggies!  I just LOVE the colors of the graffiti walls!  It makes the most perfect backdrop for senior photos!


Amanda totally rocked her session!  From outfits, to hair and makeup to posing, she REALLY nailed it!

Our second location is one of my favorites!  Again, her outfits were perfect for the location!  She made my job so easy!





CONGRATULATIONS on your senior year!

Rochester Hills, Michigan | Newborn Photographer |




Baby Carl was born 6-14-17 at 8 lbs 1 oz and 20.5 inches long!   His cheeks and lips were to die for!  He was so sweet and slept almost the entire session!  Mom and Dad wanted to incorporate a baseball theme in some of the photos and brought in the cutest baby Detroit Tigers jersey, a glove, baseball and bat!  Of course, I love getting creative and he cooperated with all the poses!  I love capturing all the little details, lips, ears, fingers and of course toes!


He opened his eyes for a minute and then…


Back to sleep!
