My husband and I absolutely loved working with Josie! As first time parents, bringing a child into this world amid a pandemic - each experience is full of anxiety & discomfort. But Josie was so gentle, professional, & safe with our newborn! Her studio is so adorable and cozy. We couldn't be any more in love with the outcome of the photos she captured. Such beautiful photos are easy to cherish for the rest of our lives.
My wife and I were so impressed with how patient Josie was with our finicky newborn! She took her time with each pose and was very gentle. She even changed our baby's diaper with one hand while she was on her lap! Talk about professional. Don't get me started with the photos! They turned out beautifully. We couldn't recommend SunnyMelon enough!
We met with Josie after reviewing many maternity/newborn photographers in the Portland area. She was professional and explained the process of maternity and newborn photos, including prices at our initial meeting. We decided to do the one year package with her. So far we have only done the maternity photoshoot, and the pictures turned out AMAZING! She accommodated my wife's requests while using her artistic eye to make suggestions on wardrobe and poses. We ended up getting a canvas and multiple folio mats of different poses that we love. She personally delivered the canvas to us and made sure we were happy with the products. Looking forward to the newborn photoshoot as well as the other milestones included in the package!
The whole experience with Joise was amazing. She was just what we were looking for in a photographer. Every detail and description of what I wanted for out baby girl, was whar we got. She handled her with care and captured many beautiful poses. Hands down our best decision. We love our beautiful photos of our wonderful baby girl. Thank you!
Excellent work. Was very patient with our daughter to get the best shots possible. Superb taste in lighting and composition. A pleasure to work with.
We had an amazing experience with SunnyMelon. We were so worried about doing newborn photos, because our baby girl is very alert and doesn’t nap easily. Josie was so patient, soothing, and kind with our little one. She got our babe to sleep (not an easy feat!), and captured some absolutely beautiful photos that we will cherish forever. Thank you so much, Josie!
I never thought of myself as one who would get professional photographs but after we had our baby, I was determined to get some. I hunted down Josie and I'm so lucky she was able to take us. We felt very safe with her handling of our little one during Covid as she wore a mask and took all the right precautions to protect everyone involved. My friends and family are amazed that she was able to capture the sweetest pictures of our daughter, especially the one where she is sleeping with a cute smile on her face! Josie is definitely a baby whisperer. I don't think our daughter is particularly easy going but with Josie's soothing techniques, she was able to sculpt our daughter into these poses, snap some pictures right before our baby unravelled again. So grateful to have this special time captured forever!
One picture from the shoot with Josie that I will seriously treasure forever Josie is beyond talented, kind and patient, especially with my little boy! The images were stunning and melted my heart!
The best photography around! Josie has taken done two newborns sessions and one session with my oldest and all three have produced AMAZING photos! I wouldn’t trust anyone else with these precious memories that she has given my family. I highly recommend SunnyMelon Photography!
Josie is an amazing, talented photographer and she’s a wonderful mentor and person. I’m so glad to know her, her work is simply unique! One of the best in NEWBORN field
Josie is an amazing photographer who has now taken photos of two of my newborns. She is extremely detail oriented and captures such a variety of gorgeous photos. Her sets are beautiful and her style is spot on. The photos I have from her I will treasure forever.
Josie did wonderful with our newborn with family photo session. We love every single picture. It was a big challenging picking out pictures because every single picture looks amazing and I’m sure it will be for hard for everyone too. I honestly wanted every single picture. She’s so nice and good at making my toddler laugh in the pictures. I can go on and on how much we are so happy with our pictures.
Josie did an amazing job on maternity shoot! She never disappoints and we are in love with every single photo. We can’t wait to have her shoot our newborn when she arrives. Thank you Josie!
Josie did an incredible job on our newborn photos. We are over the moon with how they turned out. She was wonderful with our fussy baby too! Cannot wait to work with her for future photo sessions of our family! Don’t hesitate to book with SunnyMelon! You won’t be disappointed!
Josie is seriously the best! Our newborn photos were incredible and our 4 month lifestyle came out perfect. My husband and I have taken ALOT of professional photos but none have compared to the masterpieces that Josie with SunnyMelon created. We love her beyond words!
It was a pleasure working with Josie and we're so happy that we found her on Yelp! Her photography style is exactly what we were looking for! She was very sweet and gentle with baby and the newborn photos came out so much more beautiful than we even imagined. We'd highly recommend that you check her out!
I did a lot of online research and selected SunnyMelon Photography as the cute wraps and newborn styles were exactly what we were looking for to photograph our twin boys. Josie was a joy to work with and we loved her attention to detail, openness to us bringing in two hats we wanted them photographed in and attention to safety. We had to reschedule several times due to things going on with the babies and Josie was very flexible and understanding. We appreciated that. The shoot was also enjoyable as we had a short baby break and got to sit back, watch and relax. Would highly recommend!
Josie’s newborn photos are the best in the Portland area, if not the best in the United States. Her attention to detail, her knowledge of posing and safety astounded me. I will absolutely be using her for newborn portraits with my next kiddo. I’ve never been happier with image quality! She is also just a great and all around sweet person.
