Capture the

Are

Moment

Let's make something cool

Let them be little let them be free.  Let's get together and take photos of  this little slice of time before your littles get any bigger!  My family sessions are focused on seizing the moment and photographing your children as they truly are. 

The spirit of a good family session I believe is a mix of beautiful portraiture and all of the messy and wonderful moments that truly capture the spirit childhood.  You won't catch me perfectly posing you children with props and asking them to stay clean and smile right at the camera very much.  Let's make something a little special and unique that tells your story.

Nice Things
      People Said

Her work tells a
    rich, tactile story.

It captures an intimacy and energy between people, nature and environment in a way I haven't seen other photographers do. There were a lot of unknowns for us in planning a destination wedding, but we knew for sure Melissa was our photographer before we had even contacted her.

this never gets old for me. this work

is like a bolt of lightening.

Her work told our unique story

 in an effortless way.

Working with Melissa was fun, easy and felt completely organic

you can see it in our photos. I think a lot of that has to do with her natural talent, but I also think a lot of it has to do with her spirit and who she is as a person. She put everyone at ease, went with the flow and was truly with us through the joyful, quirky and emotional moments. 

take trips and travel more deeply.

take trips and travel
                    more deeply.

I can actually feel the memories in my body.

Not only is Melissa crazy talented, and her photography / perspective incredibly beautiful but her bubbly and positive energy is seriously contagious! You can’t help but want to be around her (making her so easy to bring along on any projects)! She makes you feel completely yourself and at ease in front of the camera

 focus on fresh, wild, and adventurous
