I’m Melissa, a professional custom photographer serving the Piedmont Triad & Triangle areas of North Carolina, including: High Point, Burlington, Greensboro, Chapel Hill & Raleigh.
As a family portrait photographer, I specialize in children, newborn, baby & senior photos. While my newborn portraits are mainly indoors, I relish in the opportunity to grab my Nikon and head outdoors to play in the gorgeous natural light of North Carolina. Most of my portraits are captured in the beauty of nature, but my babies are photographed in a warm and cozy indoor setting.
I am mom of two amazing children & a wife to my very best friend in life! I am an avid scrap-booker, dedicated soccer mom, and love to decorate.
My style of photography is modern, clean and unique. Each detail of a client session is planned from location to props to wardrobe and so much more. However, one of the things I love most about photography often can not be planned, but can be captured!
I love to capture emotion in my images. Whether it’s the anticipation of an expectant mom, the adoration of a new little love, the curiosity of a toddler, the playfulness of a pre-schooler, the shyness of a child, the inner beauty of a teen, the love between a couple recently engaged …. each season of life is one full of emotion. That emotion elevates a portrait to a memory, an experience, a keepsake that we can forever hold close to our hearts.
This is the reason I feel so blessed to be able to have this amazing job! Joining my clients through their journeys in life, capturing their moments, their memories, their families, their lives, their joys and compiling them into canvases, portraits, albums for them to cherish …. it is truly an honor. I am humbled to think that this art work will never be outgrown. It will last generations, it will tell stories of who they were in each stage of life. It will warm hearts, it will define character, it will represent tradition… I am so grateful for the privilege to provide such a treasure.
Years ago I left the corporate arena to become a stay at home mom. I enjoyed the business world, but at the end of they day I always seemed to find myself longing for something a little more. Somewhere deep in my heart I knew I needed a little something different when I returned to the workforce. After years of classes, workshops and seminars, photography became my not just my creative outlet, but a business I adore. My desire is to provide excellent service and produce a quality gallery of fine art images that you will fall in love with! After all, seasons of life pass so quickly.
I welcome the opportunity to
capture your season of life … one moment at a time…
