A look at the journey
You've got great news to share! There's a bundle of joy in your future, and now you’ve come to the realization that you need a way to capture these moments perfectly... Maternity portraits.
The first step? Finding a maternity photographer. It’s going to be the first decision of many in the process of planning your portrait session. The good news is once you’ve chosen M3 Creative, the hardest decision in that planning process is over! Now you have a personal guide… a partner to help that vision of your dream portrait come to life.
Our Signature Experience is a custom, personalized process from beginning to end. It is the perfect choice for those who want and demand superior quality and 5-star service.
Where Do We Start?
One of the first questions we ask at M3 Creative is also the most important question in the process:
Where will your photos live? On the wall? In an album?
Why is this the first question we ask? Just like that 3 Michelin star gourmet chef who holds the title of best chef in the world can't plan a stellar award winning dinner without ingredients, we can't plan the dream session you envision unless we know what you want your end result to be. How do we do that exactly? We start at the finish line! Our simple 4-step process is the key to that end result and your photography vision becoming a reality!
The Selection & Ordering Appointment
My name is Melissa and I'm your guide to forging your legacy with light and love! Over the past 9 years, my clients have come to me to capture multiple life experiences because they know I will tell their life's story with the same attention and care used when I speak of my own treasured family legacies. They know I will be able to capture one-of-a-kind memories that they will treasure for a lifetime. Kids grow up fast! Let's stop the clock for just a moment and create a window in time that you'll treasure forever.

I realize much like buying new furniture or other major investments, the price tag can be a determining factor when choosing a photographer. Like many others, it's what has brought you to this page on my website. No matter how much I wish this wasn't the case, my experience has shown me that most people will ask about cost more than any other question.
The other side of this hard truth is nothing found on a price sheet shows you why hiring me is different. Without seeing your beautiful images in person, feeling the texture and weight of the prints, dragging your fingers across the fine linen or leather before cracking open the albums full of images, you really can’t see or feel the true beauty of what we offer. There are no words or pictures I can put on a price sheet or even on this website to relay all that detail.
I can't communicate the overwhelming feeling of joy you will feel seeing your images up on the big screen for the first time or how you will try to hide that tear of happiness rolling down your face. I can’t express the joy you will feel to display these treasured memories in your home. There’s no way to tell you about that big hug of gratitude you will give me when you receive your new custom-made professionally designed and created album because you know that this will be a part of your family legacy for generations.
How do I effectively communicate that to you? Well, that’s the hard part, and to be honest, it can’t be done on a brochure, hand-out, or website.
So for now, let's go over the basics. Here it is...
