Hey friends! Welcome to my world and thanks for your interest in me and my photography.

   Just a little about me, I am in my thirties and soaking up every second of being a mother to my three littles and a wife to the best guy a girl could ask for. I mention them for good reason, they are my inspiration. The imagination, the innocence, the surreal perspective of my children and the strength, passion and never ending understanding from my husband. They are my people, they are my team!

   I am completely obsessed with my family and making new memories with them and this carries over into my photography. I focus on interactions and emotions between each family member. In our sessions there are lots of hugs and snuggles, whispers and laughter. I am able to help you create special moments  and bring forth the natural ones that make your family unique.

"Melanie makes taking family pictures an absolute joy! From helping decide what to wear, to scheduling the perfect sunset time, Melanie is a professional who shines in her art as a photographer. The session itself was laid back, no stress, an no need to make everyone smile at the camera at the same time. I treasure the candid images she captured! I highly, highly recommend Melanie Hodskins Photography."

"Melanie recently took family and newborn photos for us after the birth of our first child and I could not be happier with the results. Melanie was incredibily easy to work with, we were able to see all the photos only 3 days after the session, and she had so many beauitful options to choose from for keepsakes. I am so thankful we chose her to capture this speacial time in our lives."                  - Olivia Winstead Hardy

"I contacted Melanie about doing a session for my 2 year old and she almost immediately responded to my inquiry and provided me with all the information I needed! I can not even put into words hoe beautiful my little girls pictures are! She has a talent for capturing those special moments! You can actually see my child's personality through the photos. I look forward to our next session with her!"
