Let's go on an adventure

San Antonio Family & Lifestyle Photography

Your next family session

Let’s go on an adventure and capture beautiful, artistic images of your family snuggling, laughing, playing, and being YOU. As a mom, I understand the pressure that comes with finding the right photographer who will be patient with your babies and those teenagers who pretend they can’t smile! As a fellow mom and your photographer, I will guide your family before and during your session, so you can engage naturally and create lasting moments.

Client Testimonial

"What brings me back to using Melody and MC Photography is her kindness and her being extremely patient. She shows so much respect for you and your family. Before, during and after your session, she makes you feel comfortable and knowledgeable of what is going on."

- Lucianna Cruz

About Melody Celeste

Family photogrpaher in San Antonio

I fell in love with photography as a young girl, creating scrapbooks with my mom. After taking photography in college in 2012, I started taking portraits as a hobby and it has grown into this amazing business that helps support my family! I am a San Antonio native, wife, and a boy mom. I preach and sing at my church and also teach journalism as an adjunct professor. I love sunsets and sun flares in photos, but mostly because of what light represents in the Bible. God calls us to be a light, and I hope to shine for Him!
