Hey there, I am Melissa Arlena, a Virginia native who is moving to the land of her favorite Golden Girls to be a Miami newborn photographer serving South Florida.
I'll be taking clients in Virginia until June and will start taking on Miami clients in August.
I’m a military wife, Marine Corp to be exact, and mom to three littles, Will, Rob & Grace! I love DIY and interior design and when I'm not behind my camera I'm probably planning or doing some kind of home renovation project.

When I’m not busy photographing adorable newborns you can catch me sailing the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay on our 40′ sailboat Apogee with my handsome husband David, and our crazy kiddos.
We have brought each one of them onto the boat as babies so they have been sailing all their lives. Now the boys are getting old enough to start helping out a bit and they love it! Grace would spend all her time with her feet hanging off the boat (tethered of course) if we let her.
Sailing was something we just kind of fell into and here we are 12 years and 3 boats later spending our summer vacations cruising the Bay for weeks on end!
