Melissa is a new photographer in Bakersfield but she has the promise to be one of the best! She is very friendly, professional, and easy to work with. I had a few ideas for poses, and she is great at collaborating with you. I’ve worked with several other photographers in past and things she did NOT disappoint with as others had: She scoped the location ahead of time to make sure it was good to go (I’ve had a photographer tell me same day that the location wouldn’t work after all and had no backup location so we cancelled), she was on time and ready to go, (again, I’ve had some be late), she had ideas/toys to try to get child to look into the camera. (I’ve had another photographer with absolutely nothing).
She was very PATIENT and understood that kids need time to warm up. She worked with us and was able to get nice smiles from my girl. Other photographers I’ve worked with will keep shooting whether the child is frowning and not even care in the end how the child looks. That would make for bad and unnatural photos. I compared her to other photographers because I’ve worked with several others who had been doing it for years who did not compare to Melissa’s professionalism! It was a breath of fresh air! She takes photos until she gets great ones! Melissa captured a variety of posed and candid photos. She is super easy to work with and does beautiful work! 🙂 We love our pictures and are thrilled with them! You won’t regret hiring her for your photos! She is awesome at what she does & loves it!
