Attention Cincinnati Clients

Posted on July 16th, 2011 in Uncategorized) by admin | 0 Comments »

It is with great pleasure that I announce that very talented Ben Elsass of Ben Elsass Photography will be taking over my Cincinnati clientele effective immediately.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ben for the last two years as we prepared for this important transition and many of you are already very familiar with Ben’s work. I am confident that your photography needs will not only be met but wildly exceeded with Ben’s talent, dedication and professionalism. This transition allows me to focus my energy on growing my Priceless Reflections and MFK west coast clientele closer to home in the Phoenix, San Diego and Los Angeles markets.

It has been such an honor to work with my Cincinnati clients for over 10 years as I documented your growing families and all their beautiful milestones along the way. Thank you again for entrusting me with your precious family memories.

Sessions with me are still available in the Cincinnati market – for pricing information please go to the new MelissaFranklinKahn site.

She said yes! She said yes!

What fun I had shooting this adorable couple.  We flew out to San Diego to get some beach shots because they really REALLLLLY love the beach… and HELLO San Diego! The beaches there are gorgeous, as well as all the other venues we drove through…we shot on the beach near the cove (the cave?? what was it?? It was gorgeous, whatever it was!)…. the old “barrio” neighborhood (and had some FABULOUS marlin tacos from a great little taco vendor on the street)….Balboa Park (LOVED it!)… etc. etc. etc.

So many great shots that show their personality – they are full of laughter and love, and were a total pleasure to work with.  Can’t wait to shoot their beach wedding in a few months!

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!

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!”

The big outdoor market is full of great restaurants, loads of off-the-chain shopping, and entertainment.
Be sure to hit Slices (http://slicespizzajoint.com) and Mojo Yogurt (http://www.mojoyogurt.com) for yumminess, then head over to Dave & Buster’s or the Marketplace 16, home of the largest movie screen in Arizona.

“Where’d she go?”

“Has anyone seen Melissa?”

“Hello… hello… hello… ::echo fades into the distance::”

That’s me. MIA. Missing in action. Gone. Absent from the blog. I’m so sorry!! It’s just that life and work got hectic and something had to give. Couldn’t be family. Couldn’t be friends. Couldn’t be clients. Couldn’t be the holidays themselves. That left the poor blog.

My New Year’s Resolution?  You’ll be seeing a lot more of me in 2010! (now, is that twenty-ten or two thousand ten…. the things we have to ponder!)
