Hello I am so excited you are here!
Many years ago, a dear friend of mine introduced me to Photography at the age of 16. As I offered to help out with photography assignments I realized during the preview opening of Dumb and Dumber with Jeff Daniels, I began to realize that this was no longer a hobby, but now a deeply committed and passionate love affair with photography !
My life continued, as did my love for photography, and now, along with my husband of 20 years, Dave, and our two amazing children, Justin and Mattison, I have been able to practice and hone my photography skills to the exceptional level that they are at today.
I pride myself on being an outgoing and fun-loving person. When you shoot with me, it is my responsibility and my duty to ensure that not only are you receiving the highest quality portrait experience I can provide, but that I am also creating an environment that is fun, special, and allows you to feel comfortable in front of the camera.
I strive to maintain aesthetic quality in all portraits that I shoot, and I pride myself on giving each and every client a personalized and unique session.
Providing you with quality imagery is most important to me and that is why continued education is a must. I have had the great honor and privilege to have been educated by some of the most experienced and well-rounded professionals in my field, such as Sue Bryce, Megan Dipero, Tara Lesher, Lindsey Adler, Steve Kozak, Sandra Pearce, just to name a few.
My love for travel has provided amazing backdrops for my clients and their memories. Whether you are looking for a bungalo on the beaches of Aruba or the slopes on Mt. Pennine in Switzerland, I am your portrait guide.
Melissa is amazing! She did my daughter’s senior pics. She truly puts her heart and soul into her photographs. From making sure that every hair is in its place to guiding her client in order to acheive the best shot! 5 stars from me!
Melissa is amazing, she did the senior pictures for my son making the experience fun for him. And getting some amazing pictures of him. She also did family photos for us. She was so much fun putting everyone at ease. Can’t wait for these pictures! I would highly recommend her.
