Melissa offers newborn sessions only (newborn babies no older than 2 weeks of age).

 When you book, it reserves a session in Melissa’s calendar. Your due date will be penciled in and then shortly after you give birth, you would contact Melissa to confirm a session date and time.  All sessions take place with babies under 14 days old, (best around 6-12 days of age) at Melissa’s in-home studio in Farmington, CT.

At Sweet Melissa photography, we believe you should walk away with the digital files so that you can have your images for a lifetime. Receiving the images as digital files allows you to print at any size as well as share with family and friends as much as you wish! Melissa also offers beautiful wall art such as canvases and float wraps, as well as custom designed session albums and birth announcements.

Please choose from the 2 following types of sessions:

Premium Digital Collection | $999

A 2-3 hour in-studio session that focuses on baby with a wide variety of blankets, buckets and props. Complimentary shots of parents and siblings are welcomed and encourage (if requested.)
