Steps in My Work

The process of turning your precious memories into works of art

1. Session Planning

We start by hearing your personal goals for your session, choosing the date, time, and location and then sending you a booking propsal and having you pay the Session fee

2. Photographing

You get prepped on what to wear as well as any other important info before your session. We meet and have a super fun, relaxed time capturing you!

3. The Magic Touch

After your session it takes about 2 weeks to go through your images and edit. You recieve a slideshow set to music and private gallery that supports social sharing so you can show all the fun you had.

4. Purchase Products

Purchase only the products, gifts, or full digital images that you absolutely love!

“Our sessions with Melody Rae were frustration free. She knows how to work with children and large families. Not to mention she has an amazing creative eye. You get natural poses instead of stiffed forced photos!”

About Melody Rae Photography


As the most photographed generation, most people see images as mere snapshots. All to often here today and gone tomorrow where they generally live and eventually die on digital devices.

When you book a session with Melody Rae and see the beauty of your final images, you will understand why cherishing them with custom heirloom products will turn your house into a home full of precious memories.

Meet the Photographer

Hey there! Welcome! I almost can’t believe that I’ve been serving and photographing families and couples from all over the world for almost 10 fun filled years in the Netherlands and Europe. I offer custom portraiture that is Bright, Bold, and Colorful, with just a touch of nostalgia.

Amsterdam, is my playground but I’m also available and always up for travel and destination sessions. When I’m not at my favorite job in the world you can find her me on my yoga mat, indulging in delicious eats, advocating for autism, being a full time mom, living and loving in the moment with my two favorite boys, and laughing with the love of my life.
