I'm Over The Moon! + Announcement!

I am over the moon about this next see, I have the pleasure of giving families images of their little ones on a weekly basis; however, a photograph of my children and I has alluded me for nearly two years! I am always the one taking the photograph....and kids are pretty sick of the camera in their faces!

I am so very excited to be a part of an amazing and generous movement started by the fabulous rockstar photographers John Michael Cooper and his lovely wife Dalisa of AltF photography. They are currently traveling the country on a speaking tour (Very AltF) and have generously decided to donate their time and talent to an amazing pay-it-forward movement. The mission: to take roadside family portraits of photographers' families. 15 minutes + my children + a talented photographer= Melanie's Bliss. Why? Well, as they so eloquently put it,
because the cobblers son has no shoes. You'll be surprised that many photographers have loads of photos of their kids, pets and loved ones but few have a complete family portrait that includes them. is our roadside portrait-- yeah, Harper and I are rockin' the boots. At least we are representing our state, huh?

Follow their [mis]adventures (hilarious) as they travel the country this summer in their RV by checking their daily blog.

ANNOUNCEMENT: As part of my pay-it-forward duties, I am looking for another photographer's family to photograph in a quick, roadside fashion (and then that photographer does the same for another photographer's family and so on…..). If it all goes according to plan, in a year or so, another photographer should be taking our family photo again!

If you are a photographer (or if you know one and can pass this on) send me an email telling me who is in your family, when was the last time you had a photograph with your children and why you would like to be photographed in this manner. NOTE: we must do this within the next 2-4 weeks, so please keep that in mind.

Okay--I think I'll go skip around my house a little more. I'm so very happy. John Michael and Dalisa: thank you. thank you. thank you. You have given me something priceless and precious. I will treasure it forever.

Lucky you! Your photo is fantastic! I was just lamenting this week that I do not have a family photo and a photog friend of mine has offered to take our shots.
