Hi there! I'm Melanie! Owner and photographer of
Melanie Baldi Photography
• a little about myself •
I am a 32-year-old, proud Latina millennial.
My pronouns are she/they.
(Because yes, we respect those here.)
I am proud to identify as LGBTQ+.
I speak both English and Spanish.
I drink too much iced coffee and usually have 3 different drinks near me.
I do a killer cross-stitch and occasionally paint.
I'm an amateur pole dancer and it has quickly become my favorite hobby.
I seriously love music and I'm always looking for new songs to
become obsessed with. I'm also taking singing lessons so I can sing better forever.
I really adore love and all things warm and cozy.
I have been together with my soul mate for over 10 years.
We have 3 beautiful, energetic children together.
We live on a beautiful farm with dogs, a cat, chickens, and bees.
We live in a small town, but I travel all over DFW for my sessions!
Around these here parts,
We believe in human rights.
Around here, Love is Love.
Around here, Black Lives Matter.
As a mother, an art lover, and a photographer,
I understand how important it is to want to document your special moments.
Let me be your storyteller.
I strive to capture what's real. I want to capture every silly, fun moment during our session. I want to capture those beginning awkward smiles that slowly turn into big belly laughs. I want to capture parents effortlessly loving their babies. I want to capture husbands sneaking loving looks over at their partners. I want to capture the fire coming from a couple so in love they can't keep their hands off each other. I want to capture kiddos being kiddos. I want to capture people from all over the world regardless of gender, race, sexual preference, or disability. I want to capture your most important and special days. I strive to capture life happening right before my eyes. My hope when you receive your images is that they stir emotions in you. I want you to immediately remember how that day felt because even though details fade, the memories made won't. So that's what we're going to do. We're going to make amazing magic together in the most authentic and real way possible. Those are the memories we want to remember forever.
Please feel free to ask me any questions, message me any concerns, or email any ideas you may have. And don't forget to book all of your sessions with me, because I know we’ll have a great time together! Photography can seem like a large expense, but I promise you will never regret having these memories at your fingertips!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my work!
