I am known to most by Melanie, but am referred to often as mom and now Lolly as well. Born and raised in Connecticut, I moved to Williamsburg in 2007, with my wonderful husband. Together we have three amazing children and three grandkids, and if you look closely you may just see them in a photo or two!
In the spring of 2022, I achieved the dream of opening my studio, and I invite you to book your session there for headshots, newborns, cake smashes, birthday celebrations, anything!
I love... love. I love capturing love. I love grabbing those silly faces of children and freezing that moment in time. I love the laughter and silliness that can be seen in a child's sparkling eyes. I love the candid moments, the unexpected photo. I love the look of excitement on an expectant mother's face. I love the look of curiosity on a toddler's expression when exploring something new. I love the giggles and laughter shared between siblings. I love.. love. And I love being able to capture that for families.
I know that when you are looking for a photographer for your family, you are trusting them to be honest, reliable, and safe, and you will absolutely find that with me. I want you to have long lasting memories that also makes wonderful art on your wall.
