John & Melissa Relic

We have had the pleasure of working with Melissa twice, once for our maternity photo shoot and then when our little guy turned 6 months. Both times her professionalism, patience and creativity were above and beyond. She was able to capture priceless moments that will hang in our home for years. We can’t wait to work with her again in the future!

I've had maternity photos and newborn photos done with Belle Photography. Melissa had great ideas and was very professional. Definitely would recommend!

Tim & Martha Whitehead

Can't wait to see how she captured all the special moments of our wedding. Her professionalism and personality were appreciated and enjoyed. She is very creative and obviously enjoys what she does!


Meet Melissa

I'm a hopeless romantic with a messy ponytail. I'm fueled by Starbucks, sweet-cajun trail mix, and anything chocolate. I am a wife to a handsome man named Colbei, who is not a fan of cheese (I KNOW, RIGHT?! Super weird, but he's cute so it's fine). I'm a mom to a sweet little boy named Tobei who enjoys doing anything that would require me to tell him "no". I love chatting over a good frozen strawberry margarita and a vegetarian tamale. I make random references to Friends and How I Met Your Mother, and I'm not ashamed to tell you I curl up on the couch to reread the Harry Potter series at least twice a year. YouTube mom vlogs are my guilty pleasure; I can't be the only one who enjoys watching other people clean while my child tornados around my house leaving a mess in his wake. I've been figure skating since I was 5, and I can say with absolute certainty that the Ice Rink is my Happy Place.

Enough about me,
let's talk about you!
