Styled Photo Shoot by Massart Photography
Newborn, family and wedding photographers serving RI, MA & CT
This little (well not so little anymore 😫) beauty is our niece…Audrey’s sister’s daughter, Melanie. We absolutely adore her! She is so sweet and kind, and mature waaaaay beyond her years!
We were spending time with Melanie on a recent spring weekend. First we took her shopping and insisted she pick out a few new things…which she totally fought us on, saying it made her feel “greedy”. What 13 year old thinks like that?! She is such an old soul. Anyway, when we got back to the house we decided to do some photos under our gorgeous blooming cherry blossom tree. The dress Melanie is wearing in her photos is actually from our neighbor Roberta. It was her original choice for a wedding dress when she and her husband Jay had their “magical” wedding down in Florida last summer. She decided on a new dress, as this one didn’t feel quite right. Instead of throwing it away, I suggested that she dye it and use it for a styled session with her daughters.
After that photo shoot, she insisted that I keep the dress to use for future portrait sessions. Lucky for Melanie because she sure was happy to see this beauty hanging in our prop closet! She was shy about having her photo taken, but we caught her Snapchatting a couple photos of herself all dressed up so we know she loved it! 😉
Also, we can’t end without mentioning that Melanie was the face of our brand for years! She was the sweet little winking face on all of our branding materials and the sign on our old Post Road storefront studio. That seems like a minute ago, but it’s actually been almost 10 years since we shot that photo! Time flies when you’re doing what you love!
We love you to pieces Melanie! ❤️
She is so gorgeous in all of these photos…but the ones of her genuinely smiling and laughing just take my breath away!
