your family memories, beautifully preserved

Based in Charlottesville, VA, Melissa Sheridan Photography offers lifestyle photography for families of all sizes - couples with fur babies, families with lots of kids, expecting parents, & kids.

I capture your most precious memories with care. With attention to every detail, soft light, true-to-life colors, & an artistic documentary style, no moment will be forgotten.


The Family Portrait Experience

I offer lifestyle photography for families of all sizes (furry  ones too) on locations in greater Charlottesville and surrounding areas. Whether you're a couple who hasn't had photos in a while, expecting your first baby, or have eight kids - I'm here for it! 

I offer a customized photography experience for families looking to document their beautiful lives together in meaningful, artistic photos that will become family heirlooms. 

Families spend between $450-800 with MSP on their customized photo experience.

Morse Family

Melissa is truly talented. Her photographs capture the essence of time and the beauty of her subject. She is a joy to be around and she communicates well while listening to her clients desires. We highly recommend Melissa!


Johnston Family

Melissa did an amazing job with our family photos. She picked a stunning location, and she was able to get THREE toddlers smiling!  She captured each of our personalities and gave us a tangible way to mark this particular place in our family timeline with the most amazing images. 

Watford Family

We did a family session with Melissa and had an amazing time! She helped us find a perfect location and was easy to work with throughout the process. She was also great with our kids, especially helping them be comfortable and relaxed. We ended up with a lot of the best photos of our family we've ever had taken. We couldn't recommend her more highly!
