Currently the predicted bloom period for the Tulip field is April 24-25

Dates are subject to slight change

It's always difficult to predict when the Tulips will be in full bloom especially when were planning a session around them, but it's always worth the wait and a little flexibility. Thankfully the I have direct contact with local tulip farmers so I will be closely monitoring them and working together with my clients. 


Because the full Bloom period is almost impossible to predict further than 20 days in advance, when your reserve your session we will put a rough day on my calendar but could possibly shift due to the seasonal nature of the sessions as well as extreme weather. 

Sessions are held early in the morning and late afternoon to evening to avoid harsh lighting. For this reason sessions are limited. If there are no available session times that work for you, feel free to reach out and get added to a waitlist in the event that a spot opens up. 

No dates that suit your preference? Contact me below to get on a wait list or to schedule a full 1 hour private session with me at sunset for only €199!

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.

 - T. Mihan

I cannot even express how happy I am with our photos.  Melody really does amazing work!  Typically my hope is to get just one great photo from a session and I am
overwhelmed by how many of your photos I just adore!  She absolutely succeeded in capturing the true essence of our little family and for this I am so very, very grateful.

- 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!
