  • A Little About Me

    i’m melissa (and that's my camera-shy husband over there). we have a little 6 year old boy named gage, who finds himself on the other end of my lens quite a bit. i have been a full time portrait artist for 6 years now. i turned the big 4 oh this year and i'm the oldest of 5 kids. i'm the world’s biggest do-it-yourselfer and a definite home-body. i love reality tv, all wine & anything salty! when i’m not behind the camera, you can find me lost in interior design, re-finishing furniture and this year putting the finishing touches on our new custom home. i love getting my hands dirty with my boys. i'd rather lay flooring than get my hair done. and i'd much rather go fishing than shopping. i own about 2 pairs of shoes and i hate socks. you'll see ;)

    my favorite thing about custom portraiture is getting to work so closely with my clients. every session is unique, just like them! i adore when my maternity clients email me after their session just to tell me how relaxed and comfortable they were and how much fun they had! i love when i get to sit cross-legged on the floor alongside brand new parents and listen to their story. oh, how we all have a birth story to tell! there is nothing i want more than for you to enjoy your entire experience with me from start to finish! if you put your trust in me, i can promise you will be in good hands.
