I (luckily) found Melissa a few years ago when my first son was just a baby. Now, 3 years later, she's my GO TO photographer! She has done our annual family photos, newborn photos, pregnancy announcements and I've been so happy with her work, that I also trust her with my professional photos for my business. Not only is she a great photographer who gives you what you ask for, but you get your photos back quickly and the communication is always clear and timely. To top it off, her kindness is contagious! Not only is her work amazing but so is she! She's great with the kids and makes the process so smooth and effortless (which life with small children that's great). I've been so happy with her work over the years! | Angie M.
Lissarie Photography is amazing!! Melissa went on a hunt to ensure we had the wild mustard flowers as a backdrop for our family photos as I had really really wanted. She took the time to prepare beforehand by asking specific questions and getting to know our family and what our goals were. She was somehow able to still get fabulous shots despite our wild, rambunctious boys just wanting to run through the fields and joust with sticks they found. She is patient, kind, talented (and has a blessed mommy heart that helps with the wilder children) and creates beautiful photos to capture these precious years. Thank you Melissa! | Annie R.
Melissa is awesome! My family started working with Melissa when I was pregnant, and she captured some beautiful pictures of that special time in our lives. Then, she took our baby's newborn pics, and she was amazing. She definitely has a very special touch and way with newborns, and the pictures she took are so beautiful and dear to my heart. Melissa's style is very natural and not fussy or overdone. She captures real moments and scouts-out great locations to make the most of the scenery and lighting that nature has to offer. Melissa is always polite, punctual, and professional, and we love the option for the mini sessions she offers at very reasonable prices. We've had 4 photo sessions with Melissa in the past year, so it's safe to say that I can high recommend her services! | Melissa T.
We started working with Melissa last year when I was pregnant with my daughter for a maternity session. The pictures turned out amazing so we quickly booked her for a newborn session. Again, the pictures are gorgeous. She has become our go-to photographer. We love the mini sessions she does. She is incredibly easy to work with, reasonably priced, and her pictures ALWAYS turn out beautifully.| Angela P.
We booked with Melissa based on a recommendation from another photographer. We were visiting Dana point from Kansas City and wanted to have some family photos to capture our memories. Melissa did an amazing job considering the fact that we had our little dog with us too! She is so friendly, sweet and reliable and had great suggestions for locations. We love the way that our photos turned out in our friends and family raved about them too! | Leah W.
