"I want my clients to feel pampered, relaxed, comfortable & love every moment of their session. I don't want it to just be a photo session but an unforgettable experience. Creating a lasting memory of celebrating their new baby and growing family. This is my vision for New Leaf." 

-Dena Meldrum


Dena Meldrum is the owner/operator of New Leaf photography and is a licensed professional who specializes in Newborn & Maternity portraiture.
Wife to an incredibly supportive husband, who helped her believe pursuing this dream was possible.
She is also a Mom to two adorable little boys. Capturing family moments became so important to her, after becoming a mom. The vision for New Leaf photography began in October 2018, after taking her own family photos. Photography quickly became her passion.
A tiny spark of passion ignited and fanned into a flame. Specializing in a genre of photography was important to her, mastering the art in one area. After researching different types of photography, she quickly fell in love with all things newborn. Dena has spent countless hours learning all about newborn photography, reading books, taking several hands on courses and mentoring under a published award winning newborn photographer. Her studies included studio lighting, wrapping techniques, proper posing and most importantly safety. Continuing her education to ensure she is  providing her clients with the best product and service possible. 
Her passion for newborn photography wasn't just getting to snuggle adorable newborns.
This passion for photography gave her a creative license into capturing images for parents to look back on for a lifetime. Families have the option to purchase professional Albums, Prints, Canvas prints and more. Printing your photos and helping you create a wall of beautiful portraits of your family in your homes is part of her vision for New Leaf. 
If you are looking at booking a newborn photographer and want more than just a photo session, but an unforgettable experience. New Leaf photography is your newborn & maternity studio to capture your growing family. 
Freezing these most timeless moments you and your whole family will enjoy for years to come.
