Porter, our little Elf on the Shelf is back and already up to his old tricks!  If you missed his shenanigans last year, you can see them here

He arrived in style, coming down the chimney and bearing gifts…too bad he got stuck on his way down…Silly Porter!


It is already getting really cold here in Michigan, it looks like Porter is Crocheting himself a sweater so he can stay warm…So crafty!


 It took a while for us to find Porter on day 3!  We finally found him flying high around my son’s nursery.

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.
