Absolutely, yes!!! This is exactly why I reached out to you a couple months ago and you totally captured exactly what it was I was wanting to have captured. The colors are perfection...you captured the eye shots that I was wanting so naturally and true to what I think I look like. Thank you deeply :) I keep looking at them...they are kind of insane. I’m in utter awe....you are so talented.

My crazy toddler son, by now deeply in love with his ‘Aunt Melly’, hammed it up for the camera while spinning about like a top. As usual, I was surprised to see a calm, sweet child reflected in the photos - subtle expressions ‘capture[d]... the way I thought only I could see him,’ as my husband has said. The family photos were even more amazing: raw but loving, organic without feeling in the least bit posed.

Melanie is simply an amazing photographer. I was SPEECHLESS when I saw her photos. She can connect so deeply with any baby, child AND adult. She has such an intuitive eye and the resultant photos are truly a work of art. I have hired various photographers for events and children’s photos in the past. No one even comes close to her work. I thought my photoshoot was going to be a disaster with an active 3 year old and a 6 month old. It was completely the opposite. I am still enamored by the photos and I can’t stop printing them for my home and family. I hired her recently for my son’s Christening and once again...a stunning work of art! Don’t bother with other photographers...I HIGHLY recommend Melanie Rose Photography, you will be so impressed with her superb talent!!

...I think she really captured our daughter’s ‘spirit’ in the photos, which is funny since I don’t think we even knew what that was yet, but it’s true...I’m going to check with Melanie to see if she does a ‘first 18 years package’

I LOVE THEM. Seriously, this is exactly why I wanted you to take our photos. I just knew I’d have this reaction!!!

Melanie handled all of this chaos with professional sang-froid and captured touching, beautiful, emotional moments of the day that my family and I will treasure forever. Thank you so much for capturing such a special day with our family, friends and our new baby. I cannot imagine a birthday celebration without you. I hope you will be able to come back to New York for all the years to come.

This has been one of the best investments we have made. I could not be more thrilled with Melanie’s work. She is absolutely amazing at what she does. She was patient, caring, warm and friendly. Our son immediately loved her and still responds so well to Melanie. We call her the baby whisperer! She is able to capture the innocent beauty of our little boy in such a way that makes your heart melt. It is truly indescribable.

I am going to miss Melanie when our year is up. I want to have more kids just so Melanie can photograph them! Bottom line - if you are looking for a truly amazing photographer to capture your most important moments, look no further than Melanie Rose Photography. She is a true artist and master at her work!

Melanie photographed a family party for us this past weekend. She was professional, personable, and most importantly the sneak peek of photos she gave us look fantastic. So thrilled we found here and I highly recommend anyone else needing a photographer consider Melanie - I know I’d book her again in a heartbeat!

Melanie Rose took pictures of our little girl weeks after she was born. Needless to say, newborns are unpredictable. Our little girl stayed awake the majority of the time that Melanie was taking her pictures and she became cranky towards the middle of the shoot. Melanie was very understanding and extremely patient. The end result... Gorgeous pictures that I will treasure forever. Thank you so much Melanie!!!

Melanie is professional, creative and inspiring. I have worked with Melanie on several projects both personally and professionally and she never lets me down! She has a great selection of equipment and a great eye! I would consider her “full service.” I did a photo shoot with her where she applied my makeup and helped with the styling of my hair (it’s too wild for just one person to tame!). From there, she shot my photos, retouched them...AND provided me with prints.

Amazing.
