Maternity and Newborn Photography
Albuquerque, New Mexico

Welcome to my website! My name is Melanie Montoya and am a newborn photographer in Albuquerque NM and surrounding areas. I specialize in Newborn and Maternity photography.  Babies hold a special place in my heart and I believe that Newborn images become your most precious heirlooms for generations to come.

I realized when you look at your mother you are looking at the purest love you will ever know. Mitch Albom

Melanie is an amazing maternity and newborn photographer. She has made me appreciate every milestone as a new mother.  All of the beautiful images she has taken of me and my baby girl are precious, cherished gifts we will keep and adore forever.  We are truly grateful to her and appreciate her amazing god-given talent!

Clorinda Montoya

Melanie is such a talented photographer with such a unique and beautiful style.  She has a way of capturing the most important things in life that other photographers just can’t seem to capture. Her photography is perfect.

Jason Mayfield

Melanie is amazing! She is excellent with kids and so patient. Our pictures turned out beautifully and I couldn’t be happier. I can’t wait to have another session!!
