Oh my goodness, the entire beach photo session was amazing. Melanie took us to a secluded area of the beach, and the background was beautiful. We have a 6 year old and a 4 year old, and they loved miss melanie right off the bat, she was warm and friendly. Loved that she took photos of the kids being natural, nothing forced. Melanie has a gift for taking the perfect picture. Her customer service is amazing. Would definitely recommend her! I did a lot of research, and her price was awesome. We already received our print order, and the quality is stunning! 5 stars for melanie. "A.F., Missouri
