hello!

IMG_2168-3IMG_2168-3

As a daughter of an accomplished artist, I was taught from an early age about all aspects of art.  From details in design, to the way light plays with color, I learned and grew to have deep appreciation and love for the living and created masterpiece.   Since the age of ten, when I received my first camera, I fell in love with the artistic world of photography.  The idea of capturing a moment in time and preserving it for years to come was pure magic to me.  While some interests changed throughout my life, the love of capturing life through my lens has only grown.    It has always given me great joy to give people beautiful creations that speak to their heart, especially with the personal sentiment of photography.

I love to capture real life moments, from the meaningful occasions that mark our history to the ones that make each day sweet.  With a fun and easy-going approach, I strive to bring out the true essence of personalities, capturing authentic expressions and the connection between loved ones.  

Having three children of my own, I know firsthand how quickly childhood passes, how you with in your heart you could bottle your child up and keep them little forever.  Photographing your little one allows me to bring that moment into your homes, on your walls and into your hearts for years to come.  Thank you for allowing me to be part of your family story.

  ●             kind words from my clients          ●  ●  ● 

We had the good fortune of working with Molly Bolinger on a newborn portrait shoot recently, and I can honestly say the experience was nothing short of fantastic!

Molly’s friendly, welcoming personality made us feel comfortable immediately upon our arrival at her in-home studio. She discussed with us numerous ideas she generated for the photo session. She also made sure to ask us if there were any images we wanted to make sure she captured. Molly was extremely well-organized and creative--with different backdrops and props at the ready. She even made it a priority to keep our baby toasty warm during the session. Molly has a nurturing touch and all the patience in the world. When our daughter got fussy, it didn’t faze Molly a bit. 

Molly’s photographic work speaks to the fact she has keen eye for great shot composition and picture finishing. Just a couple days after our session, she sent us dozens of images to choose from in different exposures/filters so we could decide which we liked best. 

In sum, if you’re looking for a family-friendly photographer with the utmost professionalism, I would highly recommend Molly Bolinger.

If you are looking for a photographer to go above and beyond to get the best, genuine photos of your family, you've found the one! Molly is hands down my family's favorite photographer. She plans ahead, never makes you feel rushed and somehow always gets amazing shots even with the most finicky kids. We had the pleasure of having her capture our third child's first year of life. All I can say is I wish I had met her before having my first child. Our home is beautiful decorated by mostly Memory Lane. We tried going "cheap" this year for Christmas photos and there was simply no comparison. Molly makes everyone feel comfortable and like they are the most important client. Take the stress out of getting family photos done. You're in good hands with Memory Lane Photography!

Molly was amazing with our family pictures! She was so great with giving options on locations and clothes and really captured our families "style" perfectly. She is so relaxed and fun and that rubbed off on all of us and made it such a fun experience (and receiving incredible pictures was a bonus!), highly recommend!!

Molly is one of the sweetest people I've met! She was great at picking a location that fit the style I was looking for and accommodated any requests I had. My photos came out so beautiful of my family that after having 3 children ages 9,7, and 3, I was finally able to proudly put up a large wall print for everyone to see. I also did 9 of the 5x5 tiles I loved so many. I am getting ready to do our second family session in the fall and can't wait to show off our next set of photos! Thank you Molly for being so great. P.S. she was even able to get a real smile out of my husband lol!

Molly did an amazing job capturing the personality of our family with her photographs!  In our past experience, taking family pictures has been stressful and exhausting.  Our experience with Molly was neither.  In fact, not only were we relaxed, we laughed and had a wonderful time!  Molly has a fun, outgoing personality and a love of family that really shows in her work.  She took her time and had so much patience to make sure we got great photos.  The only hard part of this experience was deciding which pictures we liked best!  I highly recommend Molly Bolinger to be your family photographer!
