About Melissa

Since my younger years, I’ve had the desire to document, design and create. Capturing moments was always my goal during any of my adventures. Currently, my passion is to capture people in their most emotional, organic state. Whether a high school senior, an adoring family or an excited bride and groom, I want to catch it all, from behind my lens.

Through my moody and authentic style, I want to assist in telling your personal story. I will lead and follow you through your session until your desired story is complete.

I welcome the opportunity to embark on an adventure with you! I adore meeting new people, so I hope to hear from you. Let’s begin documenting your story.
