We shoot taking a kind of documentary approach, capturing real moments as they happen.


Big "but" there.

We plan it out in such a way that ensures a good time is had by all.

We ignite the fun and connection in your family

no matter where the session takes place.

In your home, at your local park,

on a grand adventure in the forest, sand dunes, or lake....

we create great moments and real memories

that you can keep and look back on always.

"A family portrait shows you what you looked like;

a documentary session shows you what you LIVED like."


What our clients are saying!

Marissa & Dominic

"Melissa and Koko are the best private photographer team we have ever met, and we have used very high-end photographers before (think photographers who have photographed celebrities publicly and privately). It can be sort of intimidating to find a photographer for your needs locally--whether it be something as simple as a couple's session or as complicated as a wedding. But as soon as you meet them, you immediately feel like friends and relax, which makes the many candid photos POP. We feel like a Hallmark family after each session we've done, and the latest one went above and beyond expectations. We have done couple's photos, one-year old photos, newborn photos (same day as the birth in the hospital, what a cool feature!), and family pictures now multiple times. Melissa and Koko pick beautiful locations, and the results more than speak for themselves. We just went through over 100 photos and had a very hard time picking our favorites because of the impressive quality of all of them. When you look for a photographer, you look for consistency, and we can tell you right now after all of our sessions that they are the real deal. Their prices are beyond reasonable, and you will legitimately have a really fun time during the shoot. We look forward to using Melissa and Koko in the future and beyond, and if they ever move, we will travel to whatever state they move to--without hesitation--for the next shoot. They're worth it. They are a true hidden gem in the Southwest. We recommend them to everyone! Thank you Melissa and Koko for another incredible session"
