My name is Melissa Mullins and I’m a portrait photographer in Denver. I’m the milk bath photo expert and also specialize in boudoir, maternity, and underwater photography.

 

Melissa Mullins Denver Boudoir Photographer

 

 

 

Gentle. Independent. Rebellious.

  • I believe 3 minute dance breaks everyday are essential to not taking life too seriously.
  • I believe a quiet night at home with my husband is better than the fanciest of dates.
  • The pool is my happy place and I even love doing old lady water aerobics.
  • I believe the quietest voices can be the most powerful.
  • I’m a sucker for collectible toy blind boxes even though I never get the one I want.
  • I plan glamour shots of my cat, but she is the most uncooperative model ever.
  • I believe in dreaming big and planning bigger.
  • I believe “weird” is a compliment.
  • Catching up with friends while on a walk is way better than going to a bar.
  • I believe in creating communities for fellow misfits and nerds to become BFFs.
  • I refuse to throw out my favorite powerpuff girls pajamas I’ve had since 8th grade.
  • I believe all women have their own unique superpower.

Once makeup started, the nerves melted away. Both Melissa and her team made me feel at ease and comfy the whole way through. There were moments in the milk bath when I felt a little silly (like when I had to sneeze and then we couldn’t stop laughing) but, for the most part, it felt luxurious – like a special treat for myself. Seeing the images afterward just blew me away. Melissa’s style is flawless so seeing myself through her lens was a dramatic confidence boost.

Melissa is fun, super easy to work with, and professional. When you start talking with her about your shoot ideas, it feels like you’re talking to a long time girlfriend. She expands your ideas and creates something more magical then you can even imagine. She gives great posing ideas and coaching. Booking a shoot with her is worth it and you’ll never experience anything else like it!

Sometimes you have to dive headfirst and trust you’re in good hands. That’s exactly what I did and the experience left me dripping with body love! When it was all done my hair and skin felt incredible and I received a big boost of self-esteem! Then seeing the final, edited photos blew my mind. This was a truly luxurious experience and I’m so glad I didn’t allow my self-doubt to hold me back.

I was so nervous the day of my shoot but Melissa and her team were kind, professional, and made me feel very relaxed. My photos came out incredible – I’m so happy I chose to do a maternity milk bath session with Melissa.

Thank you for my incredible photos Melissa! Everyone should be so lucky to be photographed by you. The entire experience was amazing and something I will remember forever. I normally hate being in front of the camera but you made me feel comfortable and beautiful through the entire session, and to top it off I had so much fun! I absolutely love my photos and will treasure them always. Thank you, Thank you!!

Melissa is an incredibly talented and creative photographer. Every time I have gotten to shoot with her, Melissa has gone above and beyond to ensure I was comfortable, relaxed, and having an amazing time. Her studio space is fantastic and well equipped with everything you might need (which is so helpful if you tend to forget small last minute things like me!) The photos she produces are stunning, and I cannot wait for the opportunity to get to work with her again!

I’d never been brave enough to do a boudoir session, but knowing my body would change drastically gave me that courage. I was counting on Melissa to bring out the confident and sexy woman in me. New self image feelings emerged during and after the session. I felt empowered, brave, amazed and sexy. Given this session was 2 weeks prior to my surgery, I actually felt more confident from the perspective that I knew I wouldn’t lose what my pre-op body looked like. For my situation, and other women in a similar situation, don’t give up and say goodbye to your body or in my case, breasts, without capturing who you are today.

Melissa is such a pleasure to work with. She’s fun, sweet, and reassuring – always providing a professional and caring experience! She works with equally accomplished and talented vendors and makeup artists.

Shooting with Melissa has been an incredible experience. I had some serious health problems and a surgery a few years ago, and gained some weight due to medications and injuries. I’ve had a hard time embracing my new body. I thought I would never want to get in front of a camera again, but Melissa has changed all of that.  Doing these portraits has helped me embrace who I am now. Melissa is able to pose and direct very natural, flattering poses and it’s unbelievably fun to play in a milk bath! I would highly encourage anyone who thinks they can’t “model” to do a session with her. She will help you love yourself a little bit more which is something we could all use.

I absolutely love working with Melissa, we’ve collaborated on five shoots and I always have the best time. Not only is she incredibly talented, she’s also so fun to work with, and is always up for trying something different. Don’t hesitate to book with her!
