for your Life,

Inspired by Love!



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.

owner & Photographer


Melody Rae

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 me on my yoga mat, hanging with friends, 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.

Little Love Notes

What my Clients Say

- K. Ceary

We had a great experience working with Melody! We were nervous about how our younger son would respond to a stranger taking his photo, but she helped him relax and feel right at home!! We have images that we will treasure forever from several beautiful locations. 

- A. Kelly

Our sessions with Melody Rae were frustration free. She knows how to work with children and large families. She also has an amazing creative eye and you get natural poses instead of stiff forced photos!

- C. Locklar

These images will be priceless treasures to us and I highly recommend her a million times over. She was really great with the kids and has such a great eye for producing incredible shots. Thank you so much, Melody, for all your time with our family!
