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!

Studio Newborn Photos | Birmingham, Michigan | Scarlett

Studio newborn photos are one of my favorite sessions!

Baby Scarlett visited me for her first photo shoot last month and was a dream baby her entire session!  She even gave us some smiles when she was snuggled up with Mom & Dad!  She let me pose her and put her in cute baskets and never fussed.  Her eyelashes are SO long  and she had the most perfect rosy cheeks!  It was hard not to fall in love with her!  Mom & Dad are so in love with sweet Scarlett and you can see by the photos that she loves them too!

I love my studio and create a warm, cozy, relaxed atmosphere for you and your new baby, that is stocked with lots of fun baby wraps, bows, and cute props for you to choose from to make your session perfect!  I offer a stocked fridge with drinks and a snack bar too!  Studio newborn photos are great for more of a posed portrait session.  I love them because it allows me to be creative, which as an artist, is the best thing ever!  I love creating art for your walls and strive to incorporate colors that will coordinate with your home and keep props to a minimum to create clean, classic and timeless images.

We will start with parent & sibling shots, since it does get warm in the studio, that way you will be picture perfect!  I will then move onto some of just baby.  I love to capture all their tiny details…fingers, toes, nose, ears, etc…  Baskets and props and even some rare and unique items are available to choose from in your session as well.  I have tons of color options and even outfits for boys and girls!   I also encourage you to bring in items that are special to you and baby to be incorporated into your portraits.

I recommend booking about 3 months in advance of baby’s due date to ensure a spot in my schedule.   I typically schedule my newborn sessions in the mornings around 10am, or afternoon around 1pm and have designated spots just for them!  We will schedule a tentative date based on your baby’s due date and move as needed based on baby’s arrival!  If baby has already arrived, don’t worry!  I may have a spot in my schedule available just for you!

Baby Photo Session | Troy, Michigan Newborn Photographer

Baby Photo Session in the studio with Baby Carl William who was 6 days old.  He was born at 8 lbs 1 oz and was so sweet!  Just look at those cheeks!

Mom & Dad wanted some Detroit Tiger themed photos and brought in some awesome props.  I just love his little jersey!

He was one of the most “chill” little guys I have had in the studio in awhile.  He was so good to me!

Here is a sneak peek from Carl’s newborn session!

When is the last time you had professional portraits done?




When is the last time you had professional portraits done?

A year?  Ten years?  Never?

I feel that everyone should have at the very least, ONE good photo of themselves.  Not taken on a cell phone and not from your high school graduation, which could have been many years ago!  Something recent, that actually looks like you.  And they should be updated at least once a year if you have a young family, to document how the kids grow and change, because they do grow and change SO fast!

Professional photography is an investment, and you may think it is not affordable.  Trust me, everyone can afford professional photography!  I have many options to create the perfect way to show off your images.  A beautiful canvas wall print for your walls is a classic and timeless option.  Create gorgeous art pieces for your walls and give your home a wow factor like no other, that you will get to admire it every day.  Another amazing option is a leather album of images from your session that is a beautiful way to showcase several images all in one place.  These are a personal favorite of mine and can be handed down through generation after generation.

Birmingham, Michigan | Milestone Session | Lachlan Victor


A milestone session is one of my FAVORITES!

I LOVE seeing my newborns back for their milestone sessions!  Sweet Lachlan is 6 months old (already) and such a cutie!!  I was so excited to see him today!  We had some below normal temps and some wind, but he did great!  Quarton Lake park in Birmingham, Michigan, was the PERFECT location and we found a cozy spot without as much wind to capture some adorable photos!  It is always nice to get out of the studio and use nature as our backdrop!  Now that it is spring, I will be outside much more!


Here is one of his newborn photos!

A Special Engagement Session | Troy, Michigan Photographer

I LOVE FALL!  I also love engagement sessions!  And it is even better when the engagement session is your daughter and future son-in-law!  I first met Sebastian when Ashlyn was in high school.  She was on the dance team and performed during half time at the football games.  I remember her pointing him out on the field and told me that she heard he liked her.  According to her, he finally got up the nerve to ask her out.  They started dating and the rest is as they say, is history!  I immediately liked and trusted him and they seemed to really click.  They have been through a lot together over the last 5 years.  When he told me he was going to propose to her, I knew she would be happy and I was too.  I was also excited to capture their engagement photos!!

We picked a gorgeous Fall day in late November.    I planned on going to my go-to location at a beautiful park, but I am so glad Ashlyn didn’t want to do that.  She loves to be different and in this case, it really worked!  It was a spot I had driven by almost every day and in the fall is absolutely gorgeous.  The leaves were orange and bright as the sun and the trees were tall and beautiful, even so late in the season.

During the session I managed to hold back the tears, except for once!  I managed to capture their true personalities and their strong love for each other.  Also their love of football, especially the Detroit Lions.  I sent them to their car to change shirts and had her engagement ring to do some ring shots and accidently dropped it in the leaves and for about a full minute I could not find it!!  I told her later and she just laughed, but that was a scary moment!!

It was truly an honor to be able to photograph them over the years and see their love grow.  I can’t wait to see what they will do in their lives together.  Now wish me luck on the wedding planning!  Thank goodness we already have a photographer!  (p.s. it is not me!)

Troy Michigan Newborn Photographer | Keshav’s Newborn Session

Newborn sessions are my absolute favorite sessions!  I mean, I get to snuggle and pose babies, what could be more fun than that?  Baby Keshav was the second newborn of 2017 in the MAP studio and the first baby boy!  Keshav was born January 28, 2017 at 8 lbs and 20 inches long.  He was 7 days old at his session.

What a cutie-patootie!  Look at that hair!!  Eeeekkkk!  He had LOTS of smiles during his newborn session.  Probably the most I have seen in my 5 years of photographing newborns! Mom and Dad brought grandparents from both sides to get photos with baby and he was all smiles!  I just love it!  He was not sleepy for most of his session, which actually gave us the opportunity to get some with his eyes open.  I LOVE those rare shots.

Welcome to the world baby Keshav!  It was so much fun photographing (and snuggling) you!
