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.
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
My photos came out lovely, I had a piece I really wanted to incorporate and she made it happen just how I envisioned. Would definitely recommend her for newborn photos, great pricing, and options on packages. Will be returning when little man reaches 1.Charity Rodriguez
I knew when we got pregnant exactly what I wanted our maternity photos to look like, Melanie Maxine Photography gave me the pictures I envisioned and so much more. I really wanted these photos to bring out that amazing glow that pregnancy gives you, though you may not feel it and I definitely did not because I’ve had so many people tell me I was big. She did exactly that, these photos make me feel like a goddess! Or even better, like a fierce Mama to be! I am so in love with them, I could go on and on. Not only are the pictures amazing but the whole process from the initial consultation all the way through to the reveal is such a great experience.
I would TOTALLY recommend her!!
