  HI, I'M MELISSA AND I WANT TO CREATE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL WITH YOU

HI, I'M MELISSA AND I WANT TO CREATE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL WITH YOU

 

Hi, I'm Melissa and I love creating.  I got my start as a musician and it led me through two degrees and a full-time job as a professional musician in the United States Air Force.  This gave me an interesting perspective because I had to follow tons of rules and regulations, balance family life, fitness, and touring the U.S. and abroad as an American ambassador, all while staying true to my creative spirit as a musician.  

What's a professional photo session like? After a free consultation you have a makeover and then you come into my studio and feel like a princess for a day. Exist in photos for future generations.

Working in our marketing department is when I started getting serious about the camera in 2006, then I purchased my first DSLR and the rest is history.

Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served. But all other pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy.
— Mahatma Gandhi

Something that sets me apart is the fact that I am a classically trained musician.  

In addition to having an eye for how amazing you will be styled, lit, and posed I will be dedicated to making everything perfect as I had to being a musician.  

I spent 25 years and endless hours perfecting playing the French horn; one must be extremely detail oriented and marry that dedication with creativity along allowing yourself to be in the moment with the art you're creating. 

 
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.
— Rumi

I bring that into every facet of my life and business.  I am also committed to service and believe you should have photos of yourself, physical proof you exist for your family, friends, and future generations.  The images I produce are for you to have as artwork in your home and office and any prints or products you purchase come with the corresponding digital image for your social media purposes.  Don't worry if you don't know anything about canvases or folios, I'll walk you through the whole process, there won't be any guessing along the way. 

Let's make something beautiful together!
