Keli has made our dream come true.

Her patience and kindness with our little daughter made us feel comfortable to have fun and just be ourselves.

The experience was a delight from the beginning to the end.

I highly recommend Keli Melo Photography.

Our Products

The same way we don’t have floppy discs anymore, our children likely will not be using the same social media when they are older. Who will guarantee our hard drives will not crash tonight? Albums, frames and prints have endured since the start of portrait photography. Like any good story, they stand the test of time and pass our mark for generations to come.

Making albums, or deciding what type of wall art fits best in your living room may be an overwhelming task. I am here to make it easy for you. I have the training, software, and experience to advise you with your purchases, so you can be assured you are making the best use of your portrait investment.

Let’s get your images off your computer, out of your drawer, and into your daily life. Let’s enjoy these bright smiles on the wall every day before leaving for work. Let’s peruse the album and tell the story about your pregnancy, challenges and victories, and celebrate them.

This is your family.

This is your story.

These are the reasons to have tangible keepsakes in your home.

About Us

Being a pianist and molecular scientist most of my life, I approach photography with a mixture of art and science: I take time listening to you, getting to know your expectations and addressing any normal concerns everybody has when we think about a photographic experience.

During our photographic session I carefully compose your feelings and soul in beautiful images that conveys the unique moment you are living: the journey of expecting a new baby, the loosing of a tooth, the precious relationship between a mother and their grandchildren.

After your session, my work is far from the end. My scientist side comes to live when I carefully work in each of your images in my digital darkroom, in order to tune with the relationships frozen in each image and enhance  the beauty of your memories.

Storytelling is the center of my work. I would love to tell your love story in a way you can enjoy paging through time and time again.

What our clients say about us

Keli has an open mind hearing our opinion and concerns. She helped us to choose the outfits, best scenario for the session and the best time of the day to photograph. During our experience, she made us laugh, have fun and just enjoy our relationship as a family. At the end, our images reflect exactly who we are, just because we had the precious opportunity of being ourselves in front of her lens.Liliane & Alex R.
