Where your life becomes art…

Life moves quickly, children grow up too fast, and special moments are over far too soon. At Melissa Marino Portrait Artistry our hearts are full with the knowledge that we help people, one family at a time, to preserve these irreplaceable moments for years to come. Whether it’s the tiny, delicate fingertips of your newborn baby, the chubby rosy cheeks of your little one on his first birthday, or the beaming smile of your high school senior as she thinks of the future stretching before her- these moments are as important as they are fleeting. And if time can’t stop to allow us to enjoy these moments a little longer, our job here is to do that for you – by creating gorgeous, one of a kind photographic artwork that can bring you back to these times, no matter how far in the future it may be.

"Melissa is amazing..."

"Melissa is amazing! She has done multiple photoshoots for my twins, and each one is better than the last! To say that working with mobile toddlers is like herding kittens is an understatement, but somehow she does it with aplomb. She is patient and kind and somehow captures her subjects at the perfect moment. Her photos are truly beautiful and absolutely worth the investment. My family is so glad that we have had the opportunity to work with her; she remains our go-to for all of our picture needs!"

"A pleasure to work with..."

"Melissa's studio is gorgeous and she has such a great variety of props and outfits! She is a pleasure to work with, especially with cranky toddlers that don't want to smile! She is amazing at what she does and the results speak for themselves. The work she puts out is unlike anyone else in the area. Definitely check her out!"

"Her work is impeccable..."

"I booked a session with Melissa for my 5-month-old daughter. She was so wonderful to work with. From communication prior to the shot, her work the day of and even following up with me. Her work is impeccable and she is just so kind. I have recommended her to many friends and would definitely use her again! Her work speaks for itself!"
