Thanks for stopping by. I'm so glad you're here! 

I'm Melissa, the one woman show behind Melissa Sheridan Photography. I'm located in Charlottesville, Virginia, have an in-home studio, and will travel to surrounding areas too. I am a proud military spouse and mom to two girls. I'm originally from Colorado, but my husband's career has blessed us with the opportunity to live all over the country. When I'm not snapping photos, I like reading, running, playing with my kids, & listening to Classic Rock. 

I began my journey in photography in 2015 after the birth of my first daughter, where I used my first DSLR to start documenting her childhood. I fell in love & the rest is history. 


I've dabbled in many types of photography but love fresh babies and weddings the most. Photography feeds my soul and creative side in a way that I never knew anything could. I'm truly grateful to share my passion with you.
