ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hey there! I'm so glad you're here!
I'm Melissa, a military spouse, mom of two daughters, and portrait & wedding photographer based in Charlottesville, Virginia.
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 taking or editing photos, I love drinking all the coffee, reading, running & training for races, playing with my kids, & listening to Classic Rock or classical music.
I began my journey in photography in 2015 after I had my daughter where I used my first DSLR to start documenting her childhood. I fell in love with documenting all her moments, big and small. I started up my business when we were stationed in Hawaii when she was one. I moved my business to Virginia in 2019. I've been blessed to have been in business for 4 years and counting.
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 in such a meaningful, intimate way.
