ABOUT MELANIE

Here is everything you want to know about Portraits By MI and me!

My husband Doug and I have lived in the Carlsbad area most of our lives. We love living in such a great town! I also love that my profession allows me to utilize all the great surroundings that Southern California has to offer.

I started my photography career almost 10 years ago working with my father Andrew. Being able to work with my family is such a unique gift.

When we started our business we specialized in weddings. As my wedding clients starting growing their own families I was lucky enough to continue photographing their families.

I love that I get to capture families at every stage – maternity, newborn, and every special family event and gathering.

I am excited to get this chance to meet and get to know more families and capture their favorite moments through my photography.
Please feel free to contact me anytime – I love to talk photography.
