Welcome to my Blog!

This is where you will find sneak peeks of my most recent sessions, monthly specials, contests to win free stuff and maybe even some personal thoughts or inspiration. I'm a natural light photographer. I love working with babies and children, but am venturing into the wedding and engagement world. This has been an incredible journey, and I hope you feel at home as I experience the joy of taking pictures. Oh, and leave a comment or two - I would love to hear from you! - Melissa


Capturing Beauty

Since embarking on this photography journey almost 2 years ago, I have fallen in love with many, many moments. Picking up a camera, in my opinion, really forces you to live in the moment. To experience little aspects of the day that you might miss. My camera doesn't leave my side. I'm constantly looking for little things throughout my day that captivate me, make me smile, or even the days that I'm struggling to get through (yes, I even take pictures of my kids screaming!) Outside my daily life, photography has allowed me to meet many different people. To learn about them. To make friendships, engage, and relate. I have this ability to capture beauty. Mine, yours, theirs. It's truly a gift, and there hasn't been a moment on this adventure that I've wanted out.

Miss Courtney modeled for me today. I wanted to get out and just shoot today. I called her mom, and we made a date. Courtney is one of those kids you can't help but love. And seriously, that face? Gorgeous. I felt lucky today. Lucky to do what I do. Lucky knowing that this is just the beginning. I haven't even scraped the surface of what I can learn, absorb, and achieve. So, not only am I doing something that I love. I will love it even more as each day passes.

I hope you are doing what you love. Whatever it is.
