We live for laughter and love to capture the real connection between you and your family. 

What inspires me.

I'm drawn to photos that have a magical quality about them.

I want my senses to fire up and take me back to the moment.

I want to hear the photos; the laughter in the background, the wind in the trees and the stream trickling along.

I want to feel the warmth of the summer sun wash over me before it dips behind the mountain.

I want to smell the desert creosote after a summer rain, the chlorine in the pool,

or the sweet coffee aroma filling every inch of your home.

I want to see the vibrance of a person as they come alive when they laugh

or the tenderness they show when comforting their child.

We invite you to experience a different type of photo session. One that you can feel long after the moments pass.

A session that tells your story in a way that's so much more than smile and say cheese.

Our Method

We specialize in capturing families and children with a documentary inspired approach. Typically, we begin each session with a few posed photos to help you get comfortable in front of the camera. However, We don't spend a lot of time here. It's really important to us to find the in between moments and connection that aren't documented enough.

Hey Guys! We're Melissa & Koko!

Come Chill with us.

We try not to take life too seriously. We laugh a ton & we are passionate about life's little adventures.

We appreciate you for who you are and don't expect you to change for your photos.

We love capturing little moments that are happening and aren't huge fans of smile and say cheese.

We don't spend a whole lot of time making sure everyone looks absolutely perfect, because, let's face it, life is messy and how you connect with each other means so much more than some stuffy awkward pose.
