I'm so happy you stopped by!

Hi there! I'm Melody - a Charlotte, NC newborn photographer who's a Netflix-obsessed, CrossFit crazy, scented candle collecting new mama that loves photographing families and their newborn babies. As a new mom, I totally understand why you're here and what you hope to accomplish. These memories are fleeting and your little one won't be this small for long.


"Melody is so passionate about the work she does and she recognizes why it's so important to capture the moment. I'd recommend her a thousand times over.!"

-Tyleshia J.

"I can’t say enough about Melody! We’re so pleased with how our maternity and newborn pics turned out. She was a natural with our little guy who really didn’t make her job very easy. "

-Megan C.

"Highly recommend Sweet Souls! I did a maternity shoot with Melody and am so delighted with my photos! She is a super skilled photographer and photo editor, and great to work with too. I love that she really knows how to make sure you look your best and is dedicated to making that happens. Thanks again for the GORGEOUS photos!"

-Michelle H.

"I’ll start by saying that Melody has provided a way for our family to cherish the most precious of memories forever. The quality of her work and talent is outstanding and worth every penny without a doubt. Melody did my Maternity and Newborn photos for my second child and I wish I had known about her with my first. Her photos are like art and Melody takes care to get the perfect shots. You can not go wrong booking her for your portraits."

"She took beautiful newborn pictures of our son and was worth every penny! Very sweet and personable. She didn't make us feel rushed and I look forward to working with her in the near future!"
