The first thing that you can expect is a warm, welcoming, and friendly smile from Melissa followed by a conversation that will put you at ease. Melissa is a people person and is genuinely interested in getting to know who you are before any photos are taken. I loved this! Our  dialogue set us both up for success. Melissa uses her knowledge and her talented artistic eye to capture personality and to highlight unique qualities of the person she is portraying. Melissa takes pride in the quality of her photos and her passion for people and photography shines through her lens creating beautiful portraits that will leave you smiling long after you’ve left the studio.

I had a head shot business portrait taken with Melissa, and it’s by far the best that I’ve ever had.  I’m even getting compliments 🙂 Thanks Melissa. You’re an awesome professional, and provided a really great experience and value. Well worth it!

Melissa was warm, welcoming, engaging and very professional.

She took the time to clearly understand what I wanted and then talked me through the entire procedure in detail which I appreciated.  The photos are just what I was hoping for and then some.

I will happily recommend Melissa!
