Nice to meet you!

My name is Melissa Buchberger and I am excited to be your photographer!

I started Birch & Bee Photography in 2019 after practicing photography as a hobby for 10 years. Previously I was a high school Spanish teacher for 7 years, and when my daughter was born I decided to become a stay-at-home mom. Raising my daughter made me want to take more photographs than ever before, trying to capture those sweet little details of my quickly growing baby that I wanted to remember forever. It is my passion to preserve these details and memories for other families through my photography sessions.

My photography sessions are laid-back and fun. My goal is to create an enjoyable experience where you and the ones you love can feel comfortable enough to be yourselves so that I can capture your genuine connections in your photographs.

I would be honored to be your photographer and I can't wait to work with you.
