Colorado Photographer

Maternity, Newborn and Family Photography

El Paso COunty Teller county fremont county

Hey there! I'm Melissa, a Colorado photographer specializing in Maternity, Newborn and Family Photography. As a mama of two little ones, I know how hard it can be to slow down, even just for a minute, and capture the little memories and moments that we want to hold on to forever. I think we can all agree that, being a mom, we jump to get those everyday photos of our kids with everyone except ourselves. Most photos of us with our kids are often times just quick selfies. 
This is your time now, Mama. This is your little slice of precious time with them just for you. It's time you have the quality, candid photos with your young ones that you have been dreaming about. 

These mini sessions will be held in a natural light studio in downtown Colorado Springs with a restful, neutral, Boho vibe.

The photos from these sessions are delivered within 1-2 weeks in time for Mother's Day!

Option 2

Stand or use the floor cushions for a cozy seating option.

Add a little variety to your session with an additional, smaller set and take an opportunity to lounge on this lovely daybed with your kiddos and soak in all the cuddles.

Swap out the floor cushions for a comfy rattan chair.

" My experience was truly perfect! I've worked with many photographers and rarely do I feel like the photographer is invested in the experience. This time was much different, she had great ideas for where to shoot and how to pose and the outcome of the photos was better than I imagined! The edits were gorgeous and will be a forever memory for my family. We enjoyed ourselves during the shoot and she definitely captured that happiness! Would love to book again in the future for a family shoot."

Melissa Franzoy

Hey there! I'm Melissa Franzoy. I'm a Colorado Photographer and APNPI Qualified Newborn Photographer who specializes in Maternity, Newborn and Family Photography who is fueled by Jesus, Country music and Dr. Pepper!
Born and raised in New Mexico, I became a "first time" resident of Colorado in 2017 which coincidently is when I began my photography journey. Following my husband's military career, we moved to Texas for a couple years and have been back in Colorado since early 2020.
After becoming a mama to two incredible tiny humans, my heart really focused my passion in photography toward the beauty of growing families and any authentic connection I can capture on camera. 
You can trust that I understand the chaos of family life and will always be patient enough to capture the beauty amongst the chaos. Raising a family, while immensely rewarding, is undoubtedly a full job.
I believe every family deserves to have memorable photos to celebrate the quickly fleeting seasons of their lives while capturing the moments that may otherwise be forgotten.
