Help Support the Young Parents Support Network

This fall, have a family portrait created and help support other families in our community.



When you book a signature portrait session with Melissa Welsh Photography before October 15th, 100% of the regular sitting fee will be made as a donation to the Young Parents Support Network.

YPSN serves young parents between the ages of 13 and 29 with drop in groups and uniquely designed parenting programs.  Their outreach program provides one on one support with issues like income, employment, education, housing, addictions, violence and of course, parenting.  In 2014-15 our outreach workers provided over 1800 hours of direct one on one support to families.



“I learned through a local community member that the YPSN had some of their funding cut this year,” says Melissa. “After becoming a second-time mom this past year, I couldn’t help think about all of the new moms and dads that depend on this organization for support during the transition into parenthood. I wanted to help.”

Melissa’s Signature Style Family Portraits celebrates families at beautiful and meaningful locations.  A planning session takes place where she will discuss with you the purpose of the photograph, the final size of the photograph and your wardrobe. All of the preparation makes for a thoughtful, original photograph that will make a statement about your life and the people and places you love.

The photographs from the sessions will be curated into an Artist’s Choice Showcase on Friday, November 20th. The artist’s choice 24″ canvases will be available for purchase that evening. 15% of all sales on this evening will also be donated to the YPSN.
