“Melissa Hay was a delight to work with!  We wanted to mix up our family photos this year and move away from the “awkward family photos” poses.  Melissa had some great ideas for natural poses in and around our house, catching us in the act of playing together as a family!  She was super professional dealing with us, and super patient dealing with the kids. 🙂  We look forward to working with her again next time! ”

“I have used Melissa a few times now for our family photos and we’re never disappointed. The photos are always beautiful and so fun to see.

On top of being talented and creative, she possesses a calm that makes the process easy and fun. It can be quite the task to wrangle children for picture taking, but some how Melissa engages everyone enough to keep things flowing smoothly. She is easy to communicate with and answered all my questions quickly. I also really appreciated receiving the photos electronically, these days that’s a must!”

“Melissa Hay is a fantastic photographer. She has an incredible gift for both the technical aspects of photography as well as making people feel comfortable behind the camera. I have hired her on many special occasions and she always delivers many spectacular shots!”

“As part of starting my construction company, I needed professional photos taken of a few of the homes that I remodeled or built so that I could start a website. Melissa met me at my client’s homes and took both interior and exterior photos that completely exceeded my expectations. She is so easy to work with and has a knack at understanding what you ultimately need. I highly recommend Melissa for all of your photography needs!

I hate having my picture taken–my self-image and photos of me don’t see eye to eye. But as a Realtor I really need to have a headshot for my marketing materials–and after 10+ years of using the same pic, I knew I couldn’t procrastinate any longer. Melissa was empathetic and patient with my angst. She listened to what I did like about my current photo and what I didn’t like about most other photos of me and made suggestions for posing and angles accordingly. She generously took many shots to give me plenty of options to choose from and provided files in B & W as well as color. I hope I don’t have to go through the trauma again anytime soon but if I do, I’m totally calling Melissa! 😉 “

“Melissa worked with us on some long overdue family photos. We knew we wanted outdoor photos but beyond that we were clueless.  She took us to a beautiful setting and was fabulous at putting us at ease and took some amazing shots that really captured the essence of each of our personalities.  I highly recommend Melissa for your photography needs, as I know we will definitely be using her again.”
