capturing memories that
captivate the heart


a little about me.

Behind the Lens


My name is Melanie, mama to a 2 year old little girl, who is the inspiration behind my business.  I have always had a passion for capturing raw, natural emotion.  No forced smiles. No uncomfortable poses.  I love sharing in the laughter and pure joy of children, the love + excitement between a newly engaged couple, the unity and support of a family.  

My Story


You can say the way I became a photographer is a bit .. unconventional. After earning my BA in Education, MA in School Counseling, and working with children for 10+ years, I gave into a passion of mine: photography.

"A portrait is not made in the camera, but on either side of it."



Moody. Raw. Natural. Emotional. Playful.

I love capturing a child's innocence, energy, curiosity, + authenticity.  I love the excitement of expectant parents. Young love of a newly engaged couple. The closeness between a family. I strive to capture moments that cannot be duplicated, but celebrated for a lifetime.
