Hi Friends, welcome!

Welcome to Melody Gilliland Photography!
Hi, I’m Melody, a lifestyle photographer based in Branson, Missouri. Though Branson is the place I call home, I would definitely love to travel to anywhere in the world, to any place this passion takes me.
I’m a wife to Tyler and a mom to Alethea. I am passionate for Jesus and I treasure family more than anything. I’m obsessed with anything salted caramel, loves watching cooking shows (and my current favorite are youtube videos of chinese women cooking authentic chinese foods from scratch. lol), loves everything farm house and a big fan of Joanna Gaines.
I believe in love and I love seeing couples celebrate love and I also like witnessing families celebrate every milestones. My goal is to capture memories that will last forever and to tell stories about people’s lives through my photos.
Thank you for stopping by and checking out this page. Please feel free to look around and I hope our paths will cross soon. ❤️

Kind words from past clients

  • We loved our photo shoots with Melody! She’s taken our maternity photos, photos at the hospital of our kids meeting their newborn sister, and outdoor family photos. She’s incredibly sweet and humble. Bonus: you get your photos back in lightning speed. She works hard and truly enjoys what she does. I recommend.


  • We had an awesome newborn and family photo shoot with Melody. She is very gentle with our baby, no fussiness during the shoot. Our baby loves her so much. She has great ideas and very easy to work with, I even got all the photos in a week. And it’s all beautiful! Highly recommend her.


  • Had such a wonderful time during our family photo shoot! Melody takes time with you and knows how to make you feel comfortable and relaxed! Our pictures turned out amazing and will definitely be using her again! Would highly recommend her for your next photo shoot! Thanks again Melody!
