We only accept 6 sessions per month in order to protect our creativity and ensure that every Melissa x Lynne client receives the caliber of service they deserve. We strongly encourage booking your session at least 3-4 months in advance. However, sometimes we may be able to accommodate last minute requests.

Every Melissa x Lynne client that we photograph is an amazing fit with us from Day One. This is important to us because we truly want your experience to be just as memorable as the images you leave with. After all, you are going to be looking at them (in awe) for so many years and generations to come.

''This entire pregnancy has been tough. I have felt really tired and have gained more weight than I’m use to. To say the least I have NOT felt super beautiful throughout. Melissa x Lynne gave me an experience of a lifetime!! They did my hair and makeup, hand picked outfits that would make me look beautiful and literally posed and catered to me the entire time. This was the most beautiful I have felt this entire pregnancy. I would recommend it to anyone.'
