Hi there! I’m Melissa Lantz and I would love to be your next family photographer. To learn more about me and to see if we would be a great fit for one another go here.

Family photography is my jam! I love it so much! Pretty sure it’s the first type of photography I got paid to do. I enjoy meeting and getting to know new people. I take joy in being able to capture the love and connections between family members. Look I get it, I know that getting family photos done can be stressful…let’s be real, IT IS stressful! I want to help take that stress away. I’m a mom of three kids (2 teens & 1 younger kid) and one crazy poodle mix puppy… thanks a lot 2020! I get the craziness of trying to convince my family and husband to get dressed up and drive somewhere to take some photos. This is why I strive to make my family portrait photography sessions as relaxed and lighthearted as possible. I want us to have fun and help you create memories with your family while we capture those perfectly imperfect candid moments as well as focusing on getting those classic traditional shots as well. I promise to help make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and I will help pose and guide you during the photo shoot. Doing this will give your final gallery a variety of beautiful family photos for you to choose from.

Every family portrait session is unique depending on each of your family members, their ages and personalities at the time of that shoot, down to the clothing, the season and location you pick. No family session will ever be the same but will be a perfect representation of you and your family. After you get your session scheduled I can be as involved as you would like in helping you prepare for your family session. I’m happy to give suggestions for wardrobe styling and finding specific locations that might work best for your family. TIP! Think about what you will be doing with your photos, where they will be hanging in your home and the colors in your home. Knowing all of this will help steer you in a good direction to picking a coordinating color scheme for styling your wardrobes.

I want to make your photo session fun and I want to make sharing your images easy. So, that is why all of my family packages include a custom, personalized experience with FreeLantz Photo and access to a private online digital gallery where you can easily download, share and print all of your high resolution digital files that are included in your specific package. You will also have the option to purchase more photos if you would like. No hidden fees, no required purchase minimums and no secrets.

Interested? Let’s chat and figure out something unique to you and that will be fun as well.
