Melissa did a fantastic job of making my family feel relaxed and natural for our family photo session. We have four young children which can be challenging for a photographer, but she did a wonderful job capturing each personality as well as the spirit of our entire family! Highly recommended…thanks Melissa! -Rebekah A.

I had delayed getting family photos for years. So happy I found Melissa. She made the process so smooth and any anxiety I might have had was gone within minuites of meeting. We were able to get some amazing family photos including the family dog. I love the candid moments she captured and the eye she has for lighting. She also was so patient helping me decide which images to get printed and in which size. Once the final package arrived it was beautifully wrapped. I would highly recommend Melissa Poliono Photography. A joy to work with! -Michele M.

Melissa did an excellent job capturing our first family photos with our newborn son. She was extremely patient and there wasn’t one photo we didn’t love! Thanks Melissa for capturing our special moments with Jordan! -Laura J.

The photographs Melissa took of my family are amazing! She did a great job with posed photos as well as capturing natural interactions. One of things that truly impressed me was how many great shots she captured in a short time. I have two young boys with limited attention spans, so it was a huge plus to be able to do a relatively short session (less than an hour), but still get such a great variety of photographs!

“Melissa’s easy Spirit translates into a relaxed atmosphere… and lots of big SMILES. Our family loved our photo shoot with Melissa! And the results? She stopped time for us and captured some beautiful images of our children. We are very grateful for her attention to detail. The lighting and texture in our pictures is so rich and velvety. We cannot recommend Melissa’s work enough. A real find.”

Melissa is wonderful to work with. She communicates well to set up photo session. She knows the area and good places to fit the season or whatever backdrop you may want. She captured my families personalities in our photos and was prompt in editing and printing. Her cost is well worth it! -Chandra A.

Melissa recently took pictures of my children’s boutique, Everafter Kids, as well as of my two kiddos. First off, let’s start with first impressions- she walked in with a beaming smile and a joyful greeting. She also maintained a level of friendly professionalism through out the shoot of my boutique. During the outdoor shoot for my high-spirited children she was patient and helpful as they continuously ran off in different directions and I clambered to chase them around. Both my 5 year old daughter and my 18 month old son were comfortable with her and enjoyed the session. Finally, how are the finished photos? Awesome. I absolutely recommend Melissa Pollino Photography. -Jamie H.
