ABOUT Melissa de Valcourt PHOTOGRAPHY

Hello Friends!

I've been photographing couples in love and sweet little famlilies as they grow and experience new milestones together since 2017.  Once I had a family of my own, photographing all the sweet moments and connections of family took on a whole new meaning.  I made the decision to stop teaching, stay at home with my family, and do what I love.

There is never a perfect time to be photographed.  There will always be hectic schedules, the annoying 5 extra pounds to lose, or little ones who seem to get scrapes and bruises every time you turn around.  But how important it is to stop for a minute, amidst the chaos, to embrace the gifts we've been given and to document them, so that in the future we can remember them.  It is my sincere desire and my passion to capture those moments for what they are...imperfect, but memorable and so very blessed.  

I am based in Pensacola, Florida where I was born and raised, and where I live with my (patient) husband and our four beautiful children.  I can usually be found listening to reggae music, cooking, fishing or paddle boarding at the beach.


I am thankful for each and every couple and family I have the privilege of getting to know through photography, and I welcome the chance to get to work with you.  Please feel free to contact me, so we can connect!
