Ahlawat maternity photo session, Gilbert

Ahlawat maternity photo session, Gilbert

I love working with Ashley and her husband Gaurav . There is something so beautiful about pregnancy and I love being able to photograph maternity clients. They are expecting their first baby in September and are anxiously waiting her arrival. We photographed their maternity session here in my Gilbert  home studio to avoid the grueling Arizona heat.


When Ashley first contacted me, she wanted to know if we could somehow include fusion photography into their session. Her husband Gaurav is from India, and she wanted to incorporate that into their maternity session. Ashley came  with many several beautiful outfits including a traditional Sari from the India tradition. It was fun to fuse the cultures together and the images were gorgeous.


I am so excited to meet and photograph their sweet newborn baby girl! Thank you so much Ashley and Gaurav for choosing me to be your newborn and maternity photographer!

“I loved you from the very start…

You stole my breath, embraced my heart.

Our life together has just begun,

you’re part of me, my little one.” Author-unknown.


Love and blessings,

Hi there, I am Melissa. We moved to Arizona when I was five years old, so I consider myself a desert native. I am the mother of three wonderful children, a wife to an amazingly loving and extremely intelligent man, and a lover of animals. (We live on a small farm) I am the proud pet owner of a Chocolate Lab, miniature wiener dog, 26 chickens, 2 goats, a horse, and a miniature horse named Switch. Photography has always been a passion of mine, and 13 years ago I was able to form a successful small business doing what I love. I feel so blessed that God gave me this gift that I can pass along to others and bless them with.
