Meet Porter, Our Little Elf on the Shelf…

Porter, our little elf on the shelf has been reeking havoc for the last few days…My little daughter thinks it’s funny, so I don’t mind cleaning up the messes 😉 I will post a photo each day so all of you can keep up with this mischievous little spy.

Tire swinging from the tree…Watch the ornaments please.

Oh no you didn’t…Did you at least make me a Margarita?!


Who’s been sleeping in my bed?

Rapunzel, let down your hair.

This morning we found Porter hand gliding from the ceiling fan in the living room.

Poker with his Toy Story friends

We woke up to a yummy breakfast of coffee, pancakes and bacon…Thanks Porter!

 Porter and Rapunzel went to see the classic Rudolph at the Drive-In. 

This morning we caught Porter bringing in a tiny Christmas tree…He got mud all over the floor!

Porter decorated the little tree he brought in yesterday.  My daughter was so excited that he used her cereal garland and brought her a present…a teeny, tiny Slinky!

My daughter woke up to find that Porter was teaching Elf 101 classes in her room.

We found Porter making a sugar cube igloo this morning…Excuse me, can I have 3 of those cubes for my coffee?

Porter and his friends were enjoying a festive game of Scrabble this morning.

My daughter found Porter and Minnie engaged in a friendly sock race.

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.
