PORTRAIT experience

Everyone has a unique and captivating story to tell, whether it's their love story or their journey to High School graduation​ and beyond​. I approach each session with the same thought in mind- to deliver an unforgettable and personalized experience that goes far beyond simply taking pictures. I love getting to know my clients so that their true personalities shine through in their images. 

your story captured forever

My number one priority is to show you just how beautiful you truly are. Just call me your photographer/cheerleader!

Wherever you are on this journey, it would be an honor to work with you and capture you at this special time in your life. I specialize in wedding and senior photography but I also offer sessions for couples, momma to-be's, and families.

Kind Words

She went from being our photographer to a a quick friend in a matter of minutes upon meeting her. She is so easy to be around, and for someone who isn't used to (or fond of) taking pictures, Melissa made it feel completely natural!

She was so kind and professional during the entire session...and made us feel so comfortable the entire time. Not to mention the photos came out amazing. The experience we had with her was truly unforgettable.

I have always been drawn to her style and that gorgeous ethereal glow she always captures so well. It was honestly so much fun and she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Every photo I received was beautiful!

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but Melissa’s photos left us speechless. Her passion, attention to detail and creativity clearly speaks for itself through the quality of her work.

It was one of the most fun experiences we have had as a couple! It gave us a chance to really spend special time with each other as a couple and reflect on some of our happiest moments together (and the ones to come)!

Honestly words can not describe how WONDERFUL she is. She converts a shoot into incredible moments, rather than a simple photo packages.
