Jace…From Belly to 3 Months!

I actually knew Jace before he was born!  I had the pleasure of capturing the maternity photographs of his mommy (aka one of the most beautiful pregnant women EVER!)  You can see some of her amazing images here

He was one of the most challenging newborn sessions I have ever had!  He refused to sleep, was unbelievably strong and took a “Dump” in my dump truck =)  But when he did finally go to sleep, my assistant and I powered through his session in record time!


When Jace came back into the studio for his 3 month session, he kept his record of being a challenge in tact!  Not only was he still physically strong, but he had developed a strong willed as well!  He knows what he wants and he won’t settle for anything less.

Oh but this sweet boy will melt your heart with those enormous brown eyes and that killer smile.  He is handsome and smart, strong and sweet…You can’t help but smile when you are around him.

I think if his daddy has anything to say about it, this little boy will grow up to be a Detroit Tiger =)

  • […] It wasn’t long after her maternity session, I got the call that little Jace had arrived.  I had been planning his session for quite a while and had complete confidence that it would go as smoothly as the many newborn sessions I had shot before him.  I couldn’t have been more wrong!  Jace wanted nothing and I mean nothing to do with being photographed.  He refused to sleep, wouldn’t hold a pose, broke through even the strongest of swaddles…You name it, he challenged me.  We did manage to get some adorable shots of him that I’m sure his mommy and daddy will cherish forever.  You can see more of the images from Jace’s newborn and 3 month session here.

A Little About Me...

After years of taking pictures of my family and my friends' children, I decided to take the plunge and launch Melissa Bruno Photography. Photography has always been a great passion for me and I appreciate all the wonderful friends and family that have prompted me to take this leap. I am having so much fun developing this wonderful gift that God has given me; it fills my heart when I bring true joy to my clients and capture their special moments.

So I'm the mom in the background taking all the pictures - the one that always has her camera. It's something I truly love to do - to capture even the smallest moments. When others may put their cameras down, I will keep clicking. Sometimes the best pictures are those when people don't know they're being photographed. I love the genuine picture; the picture that captures personality and that moment in time.

I have a studio in Ann Arbor but I also love to shoot outdoors and on location. Sometimes it's as easy as going out to play and getting some fun shots. We can go to a park, or I can come to your home. My goal in each session is to capture those special expressions, candid moments, a playful spirit and then maybe a few traditional shots thrown in! I try to combine fun poses along with truly original moments that reflect personality during your session.

Portraits are precious and freeze those fleeting memories. Our children grow so fast, let's capture them in every stage, every milestone. I thank God for the talent that He has given me to really "see" a picture. And I am blessed to have a loving husband and a beautiful daughter at home that afford me lots of practice and offer their limitless support. I hope that you will let me capture you, your children, your family. A good photo is priceless and will touch your heart forever.
