AJ:: Colorado Children Photographer :: Melissa Dale Photography

When my sister asked me to come to Colorado to watch her 4 year old, I hesitated because it would be during my busiest time of year. Turns out that it was absolutely perfect timing. A break from routine, different surroundings and basing every minute of my day off of what a four year old wants. It’s exactly what I needed. We have been so busy playing, crafting and just having fun that I wasn’t sure if I would get any pictures of him in during this trip. But as we were driving home today, I noticed how pretty the trees were in the mall parking lot. Yep…the mall parking lot. lol. It was a quick session but we got some really cute photos. Sweet boy, I’m going to love you forever and always.

Marissa’s Bridal Session :: Fargo Wedding Photographer

Hello 2017! I love the start of a new year. For me, one of the best parts of starting a new year is dreaming up all the fun new things I will do with the year ahead of me. One of the things I have decided to put my energy into this year is rebranding myself! I am SO excited to launch a new blog AND a new logo soon! And with a new blog, I promise to keep up with blogging a lot more than I did in 2016. I have so many beautiful photos to share with you!

Marissa and her mom came to my studio shortly before her wedding for an exclusive bridal shoot! After having met me at a bridal show, her mom knew she wanted some beautiful and classic pictures of her daughter at my studio. For me, the best part was watching the looks on her mom’s face as I photographed her daughter in her bridal gown. Thankfully I have gotten good at taking pictures through the tears. 🙂
