Melanie Colleen Photography bio picture
  • Hello there!!

    I'm Melanie! To state the obvious, professional photographer :D

    For me food is a hobby (as long as it doesn't show up with eyes or legs of any kind)
    and coffee is a part of a complete/balanced diet.

    I LOVE smores...but really only eat the marshmallows

    There is never a bad time for breakfast...more specifically bacon haha

    I'm a total travel junkie! Love setting out on fun adventures.

    Whenever my family gets together, it usually ends in a Cribbage tournament! :D

    I like the idea of winter; oversized sweaters, good books and fire places, but the reality of summer; sunshine, flip flops and beach bumming.

    So now you know a little about me....tell me about you!
    Click that contact button and let's grab a coffee or some nom noms :D

Rebecca {A Wyoming Maternity Session}

This week has been a game of catch up as I continue to recover from a seriously nasty flu πŸ™ but I wouldn’t say it’s a tough gig staring at such beautiful people all day!

Including this gorgeous lady. I had the pleasure of taking pictures of this beautiful mommy-to-be and she was game for anything. We had so much fun and she even let me paint her belly! I know it sounds weird but it was both fun and worth it haha πŸ˜‰ Take a look….
Who doesn’t love wittle baby shoes!!Β Is that dress adorable or what?!?! That is Baby Avalena’s “bringing baby home” outfit πŸ™‚Surprise! IT’S A GIRL!Β Mama and Baby’s shoes…so sweetShe was so awesome and let me paint on her belly! SO MUCH FUN!! (and a little harder than I expected lol) πŸ˜‰

Woodall Family {Wyoming Family Photographer}

Happy December everyone!! I can’t believe it, fall came and went so fast. Glad I’m here in PDX and not my home-state Wyoming…not much of a snow person πŸ˜‰

Anywho, here is a pretty awesome family, if I do say so myself. OK, OK I might be a little biased but seriously, take a look and you will agree with me. This is a little segment of the Woodall clan my Aunt Teresa and my two cousins Riley and Andrew! Aren’t they such a cute family.

We had so much fun hanging out, dropping in on business owners and blowing some bubbles in the park!

These kids were naturals! They thought this would be a pretty cool place to have a seat and posed all on their own….YUP they had a awesome idea! Made my job easy πŸ˜‰
Ok there might have been a little tickling going on here…. πŸ˜‰Loved this! She’s the MOM she can do whatever she wants lol πŸ˜€ Especially squish your faceBUBBLES and a game of twister!!! Super fun! πŸ˜€

Mr. Brayden {Wyoming Children’s Photographer}

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Please welcome Mr. Brayden to the blog. You might remember this little guy from the Wooldridge Family session but this time it was all Brayden. Starting off with a super fun cake smashing Β in honor of his 1st birthday! It still amazes me that he is 1 already…these little ones grow up so quickly πŸ™‚

At the end, Brayden came running at me full throttle (kind of Frankenstein style πŸ˜‰ ) Let’s just say, we both enjoyed a little cakeΒ Halloween may be over but this little monster is SOOO ADORABLE! Even with the sad face πŸ˜‰Proud Mama!Β 

Wooldridge Family {Wyoming Family Photographer}

Fall in Wyoming goes quickly! We still caught some awesome colors in the background, but with this beautiful family in front on my camera, anything would look great behind them πŸ˜‰ That gorgeous lady, Aerelle, has been a friend of mine since our awesome Buffalo High School days. It’s always a blast hanging out with her and I got so excited when she called me up for a family session.

I truly adore this wonderful family and could not have had more fun hanging out with them for the day! Tyrel & Aerelle are so 100% in love and there is no question how much they both adore little Brayden. We of course can’t forget their sweet little puppies, Annie and Krue.

Mr. Brayden thought it was more fun to always turn away from my camera….little stinker. However, what a cute little tush! πŸ˜‰Boys and Camo! Of COURSE! Brayden sure does love his Daddy…they were too cute together.Β Are they not just so adorable together!?! I had to break up the smooch session… πŸ˜‰

Baby Desmond {Montana Newborn Photographer}

Welcome Baby Desmond!

I am sooo excited, this is my very first blog post (YAY) and what better way to start things off than with a SUPER adorable baby?!? πŸ˜€

At just 3 weeks old, this little man sure gave me a run for my money πŸ™‚ but who could resist such a cute little face. I am so very excited to share his session with you because…well he’s adorable! I feel so blessed in the job I get to do, it’s pretty awesome to stare at cute babies all the time πŸ™‚

Thank you Novak family for allowing me to hang out with your amazing little guy for a little while!

I just love little baby fingers and toes!

A shout out to big brother Rowan
