The heat and humidity is horrible here lately. We don't have air conditioning in our condo so it's been boderline unbearable.
I know it isn't as hot as Arizona ( I feel sorry for my friends there) but it's still mighty toasty.

Thank you to everyone that has been sending me such nice emails lately! You are all so wonderful to take the time to write me.
I have had a few people suggest some blog topics.
I will be blogging about those VERY soon!
There is lots going on around here and I will hopefully be able to share the happenings at mkp soon.
Thank you to all my patient clients, friends and family. You are all so wonderful!
Have a safe and happy weekend!

Calling all models! Or people that would like to be a model :)

I am need of some more unique wedding photos for my portfolio. If you, or someone you know, would be willing to put on their wedding dress and take some pictures let me know. I would love it if the guys would come along too.
In exchange for you letting me "shoot" you, I will give you 10 images on a disc.
Email me if you are interested. The deadline for this would be the middle of September, so just a few weeks away.
Thank you everyone!

After thinking about it, and after Mark pointed it out to me, I realized that my challenge was a bit narcissistic (sp?)
I am sorry if it came across to anyone that I was so wrapped up in myself that I wanted to hear more about me! In all honesty I didn't really know what kind of contest to do. I wanted to do one that people could win at. I chose the one I did because you could scroll through my blog to figure it out. Looking back it made me looking so self-involved. I am SOOOOO NOT that way at all!!!
So I am changing my contest:)

-Please list something that you would like me to blog more about.
It can be about, my life, Aiden, Mark, San Diego.....anything.

Again, I really hope I didn't offend anyone by making it seem like I was so into myself. I apologize if I did!!!

Here is my Aiden. He had such poofy hair yesterday. I think "bedhead" is the correct word. I played with some of my Totally Rad Actions. This one made his eyes look so cool!

Thanks for stopping by!

5,000 !!!

Hi everyone! I have reached over 5,000 hits on my blog. To celebrate, I am doing a little game.....

Here are the rules...

-Name two things about me. Let's hear some good ones! You can probably go through my older entries to find them out :)
-You have to email me the two things at
-AND, you have to leave a comment. You don't need to list the things in the comment, just say hi :)

I will be giving a prize to the 2 best entries.

So, for all you blog readers that don't leave a comment here is your chance. You can remain anonymous in your comment but I need to know who you are in your email :)
Have fun with this.
I can't wait to hear the entries.
I will be closing this tomorrow morning so get them in quick.

Have a great day everyone!

A few things.... first of all I want to send out a very special Thank You to Masen( for doing my new headshots for my website. He is so gifted and his images made me feel like a movie star.

The second thing is the Lifestyle section of my website is up! I am working on getting the babies gallery up but the rest of the site is up. I am so happy that it's done.
Thank you to everyone that has been so supportive and to my past clients!

Over the weekend I photographed this little cutie, Donovin. I shot him at 3 weeks old and now he is 3 months old. The time sure does fly by! He is getting to be a real cutie!
I had a great time with you and your family Jen!
Lots of love to you all

I have received 4 emails now that have my website address in the email name. If you receive an email with anyone else's name other than mine it is not from me. For example
I have contacted my hosting site and they say that they are just junk emails. I am afraid that people are receiving these with my company's name as junk mail.
This is very disturbing to me.
So, if you receive an email that isn't signed by me (not The Melissa Koehler Photography team) it isn't from me. In all my emails I usually sign my name and have a link to my website and blog.
If you have received an email like this that wasn't from me I am sorry. I had no idea! Please delete anything that doesn't have my name as the sender or is me). If this continues to be a problem I may change my email address.
I am sorry for the mix up and any incovvenience this may have caused.
It is very upsetting that people are sending out emails with my company name attached, very scary!
Anyway, I will have some new stuff to post soon!

I did a Trash the Dress session with Suzy the other day. This was my first one so I didn't know what to expect. Suzy was a trooper. She was up for anything. We had a lot of fun together.
For my first try at this kind of session I am pretty happy with the way the images came out.
Thank you for being such a great sport Suzy!

It's up!

It's been a long time coming but my new website is finally up! I am still working on my Lifestyle side right now, it should be ready soon.
I can't tell you how excited I am. It is so wonderful to finally have my new site live!!! Yeah!
Anyway, I have to give a shout out to my logo designer, Suzy at lorenzstudio. (sorry my hyperlink isn't working right now) She is so amazing and patient with me! She did a fantastic job.
Go check out my new site

Thanks for stopping by!
I am very frustrated right now. I can't change my header on blogger. It won't let me upload my image. I am seriously considering changing to another blogging company!
If there is anyone that can help me I would really appreciate it!

What up cuz?

This is my cousin Chris. We got to see him for a day while I was in Boston. I hadn't seen him in about 7 years!!! I can't believe we waited that long. I had such a great time with him. We all went to dinner at a crazy Mexican restaraunt, then headed the the North end for some yummy desserts. Apparantly, the North end in Bawston has some of the best desserts in the world, who knew? Then we all went to the bar that inpired Cheers the t.v show. It was so cute, definelty touristy.
I hope that we don't wait another 7 years to hang out again Chris.
Love ya lots!!

On another note..... My other computer decided it was time to go to computer heaven. I had a bunch of emails and blogs that I read saved in it. Dummy me didn't get them transferred over in time!!! Please, please, please email me or leave a comment with your blog or email. I know there are a bunch of blog readers here. Please help me out. I miss reading my many blogs daily :(
I hope you are all doing great!

Traveling from Coast to Coast.
Last week I went to Boston to visit Mark for a few days. It was beautiful. We walking along the Freedom Trail, which takes you to some of the most historic areas in Boston. We saw Hahvahd(Harvard). What a great time! I also got to see my cousin that I haven't seen in years. I will post a pic in my next post.
Then, I hopped a flight to the Bay area for a family get together. So, I literally went from one coast of the US to the other. I had a great time in both places but I am so happy to be home!
Sorry it has taken so long to post. I finally edited some pictures from my trip.
There are a bunch.
Have a great week everyone!! :)

Yesterday I did an engagement session for Mark's younger brother and his fiance.
We had so much fun! I still have a bunch more photos to go through, but I thought I would put a few up.
Thank you guys for a great time! I can't wait to hang out with you again!
Shaun is probably going to not like that I am posting a picture of him with lipgloss on his lips, but I loved the shot and that's what you get for making out so much!
Love you guys!

Wow! It's been a long time since my last post!
Sorry I have been such a bad blogger lately. I thought I would post a few pics from this past Sunday. We were celebrating our friends birthday. Since my photographer friend Amber and I were there, we thought it only fitting to have a mini photo session of one of our friends and her little girl.
We had lots of fun.
Aren't these two cute?
I promise not to wait so long to blog again.
I hope you are all doing great!
