Hey there! I'm Melissa!
I'm a military spouse, mom to two amazing girls, 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 so some of my photos may not look like here (hello, Hawaii!). When I'm not taking or editing photos, I love coffee, reading, running & training for races, playing with my kids, & listening to Classic Rock or classical music (I'm old at heart).
I began my journey in photography in 2015 after I had my first daughter Claire, 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 restarted my business in Virginia in June 2019. I've been blessed to have been in business almost 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. Capturing saying your I do's to your brand new baby to your growing family is my greatest joy.
