Artistry & Expertise

Behind my work is natural creativity, countless hours of education in photography, and continued self-study. With several years of experience as a photographer, I can assure you that your session will be captured with both technical competence and artistic vision.


I take on a limited number of sessions so that I may devote personal attention to each client.

Photographing & Editing Style

My photographing style is a blend of documentary and traditional fine art. I will direct you into natural yet flattering poses and interactions, while creatively incorporating the location into your portraits. Most of my work is done using natural light. My editing style is timeless and true to life, avoiding overly trendy looks. Photos are carefully edited and retouched with the finished print in mind. I believe in quality over quantity; you can trust me to select only the best for your final gallery.

Archival Printed Art

Professional photos are meant to be displayed as art. I take pride in providing quality items sourced from exclusive professional print labs, so that your portraits may be enjoyed both now and for years to come. Albums. prints & canvas' are rated to last 100 years in-home display and 200 years in dark storage.

Simple, all-inclusive pricing

You pay one price and know exactly what you are going to receive upfront. However, should you fall in love with your images and want more, you will also be given the option to purchase additional archival quality prints and products via our online store.


Because portrait photography is so custom in nature, I use an online contract for every session so that all expectations are made in writing.

"Melissa is so easy and fun to work with. She delivered all the photos and they were all so beautifully wrapped and presented that you almost didn’t want to open them. The quality in the products was wonderful and she had so many examples to choose from."
