My name is Melissa.

I'm a wife, mom, Little Library Steward, Portrait Photographer and a fierce pizza and wine lover. I offer a full service photo experience for my clients from our consultation to the day you pick up your prints and products. My goal is to tell YOUR story, and let you hold it in your hands.

I call this  THE REVEAL!

Once I have finish editing and producing your images, I’ll invite you back to the studio for The Reveal. At this time, you will come to the studio, and view all your beautiful images. After the viewing, you will be presented with all the great products I can create for you from wall portraits, to wall collections, metal prints, canvas, customized story books,  the options are endless! 

I look forward to taking photos for you with your mom, your kids, your best friend, husband. I want to photograph you to celebrate your 30th birthday or your 65th birthday. Do you need photos for your business to showcase your brand? I do that to. I like to say I offer photography for your family and your business.
