Other photographers dread family sessions. So many people, expressions, attitudes, and such. Pshaw on that, says I! Sure, family portrait sessions can be intimidating and serious and stuff but not with Priceless Reflections by Melissa! We have F*U*N!

I do believe we have a future golf pro in the making here. Love capturing his serious expression and concentration.

A little brotherly love… say it with me now… “awww…” and their sweet, rough and tumble, wee one.

Daddy, best get your shotgun ready now. One day she’ll leave her glorious princess bedroom for a date with Prince Charming. She’s already a heartbreaker!

This little princess has been a Priceless Reflections by Melissa client since she was just a few days old. I’ve had the pleasure of watching her grow and the honor of documenting her life through portraits for her family. On this day, she was real trooper and full of laughs, giggles, and that batting eyelashes look that every little girl seems to master to get what she she wants.

Recognize her from the top of the Smugmug site where you view your images after the session? She’s growing up!

The Jackson Family – our Fresh Faces Runner Up from Cincinnati – stylin’ and profilin’ in front of my lens at Sharon Woods – Heritage Village.  Little Levi was amazing to work with – he even chose his OWN stylish threadz for the session…. what a sweet sweet boy he is.

Yay for the Kauffeld Family! They were the Priceless Reflections by Melissa Fresh Faces | Cincinnati Grand Prize Winner!  We shot their session in Middleton back-to-back with the family they gifted with their prize session and it was full of laughs, squealing kids, and way too much fun for an afternoon.

Adorable dimpled cowgirl …

I can’t leave my Ohio peeps out of a contest so let’s do something a little… different. Send me your favorite FUNNY FACE snapshots.

The winner gets a session with moi and one to gift to a friend as well.   Same details as the PHX Kahn-test (details here in the blog)… the deadline for submitting images is TUESDAY JUNE 15th .  Send the images to Melissa with the subject line: FUNNY FACE …. images will be posted on the blog for Joe Q Public to vote on… and the winner receives a FREE FREE FREEEEE session with ME ME MEEEE during my next Ohio trip (9/30-10/7).  So let’s see those funny faces!

As Mom to two boys, I can relate to that incredible bond between mothers and sons, and this session really rocked my socks because I got to focus on their relationship. No distractions, no other STUFF, just mom, son, and me… along with some seriously killer light.

That’s not to say it was all serious and deep – we have too much fun for that!

Mom’s got a heartbreaker on her hands. Oh, those eyes!

Piece of really cool but totally useless trivia: Mom attended college with my husband in Carbondale. How cool is that?  Let’s all bust out in a chorus of, “It’s a Small World!”

I’ve been blessed to photograph the “B” family for the last 3 years or so. Blessed because they’re a unique family full of love and compassion and yeah, a lot of fun. The expressions on their faces are so much fun – just look at a slice of our day.

Pita Jungle | Found in Phoenix {Chandler Photographer}

The Kahn Family has a new home. Well, at least at mealtime. We’ve fallen head-over-heels in lust (can I say that here?) for Pita Jungle in Chandler. Healthy fresh options that I don’t have to cook, everyone has a favorite, and you can eat in, order takeout, and even order online so it’s ready when you get there.

My favorite is the Shawarma (Mediterranean Roasted Chicken) in a pita with mixed greens, tomatoes, onions, pickles, garlic sauce and tahini. If you sit on the vegan side of the table, you can take a peek at their Vegan Friendly Chart to find out which options fit your lifestyle. Pretty cool, huh?!? Top off your meal with a dessert or maybe a smoothie made with frozen yogurt or soy milk. Yum.

You’ll find Pita Jungle of Chandler at 1949 W. Ray Road and they’re open from 11am-10pm every day. You can reach them at 480.855.3232 to place a to-go order or get directions.

Clients often ask what happens if we have weather-that’s-less-than-perfect for a session. A little rain doesn’t stop the Fowler family and it doesn’t stop me. Just look at what fun we had and what great images they’ll have of their time playing in the sprinkles with that crazy Melissa photographer lady. ;)

Fowler4-19

And then my personal favorite. This is a piece of art for their home – it’s fun, it’s colorful, it’s welcoming, it’s playful, it’s THEM. No one’s looking at the camera, no one’s cheesing… it’s a real moment and it’s why I’m here.

Fowler4-25

I’ve been photographing the Fowler family since Miss G was only a few days old and splashing in puddles suits us just fine. They wanted me to come back and play the next day – now THAT is a successful portrait session!
