Hey, There!
I’m Mel.

 I just love taking pictures and learning everyone’s story! I’m a wife to a  rocket scientist and step mom to a handsome boy! Photography has become my creative outlet outside of an engineer driven home :). I especially love photographing senior girls, because well, simply, I once was one and I just loved that time in my life! I cannot wait to review a session and see their story unfold in their series of images. 

The Beginning– I started my journey with my father’s old Minolta camera, a few images of my mother in hand and a desire to be like my dad! This teenage passion eventually molded into my life’s work. I started off photographing everything I could to gain the experience and finally landed on seniors. 

Seniors- I want your experience to be about who you are at this stage in your life. You may not realize it but this is when you get to be the most free and explore just who you want to be.  Let’s capture this fleeting moment! On the weekends you can find me and my family at the local coffee shop, farmer’s market or in the kitchen cooking. When I am not with my family you can find me cozy in my bed watching the Bachelor, This is us or anything that makes me cry. I LOVE WATCHING TV! I believe in allowing everyone the opportunity to tell their story.

My Mission

“A very important person to me once told me to try to learn as many people’s stories as possible in your lifetime, and through my small photography business, that is what I intend to do. So let me hear your story and make it come to life! “
