Outdoor Sessions


Newborn sessions are held on weekdays in your home. Maternity sessions can be held outdoors or in your home.

My schedule is open for booking from May - August.

Winter In-Home Sessions

While it's too cold to have sessions outside with younger children, I am booking in-home sessions all winter long! I have weekday spots in the morning for November, but will have weekend dates starting in January.
Email me: melissa@melissaortendahlphotography.com
to schedule an in-home session.

Based in Central Massachusetts, serving the greater New England area and available for travel worldwide.
