My name is Melissa and I specialize in family, newborn, maternity + senior photography serving (but not limited to) Orange County, California. Lifestyle and candid photos are my most favorite to capture. I am a fun-loving, optimistic, imaginative, patient person who would LOVE to be your forever photographer.
…I am a mama to two amazing kids, Haylee + AJ
…a wife to my husband whom I love more everyday
…I love all sorts of nature, hiking + just being inspired by life around me
…Canon girl, all the way!
…I love Jesus and I have HIM to thank for everything in my life
…Originally from St. Louis but now I am a total California girl, forever
…Yes, I did serve in the United States Air Force, for a little over 4 years
…I have 5 tattoos, I think they add to my beauty + inspire me, I am planning on getting more
…I love dedicating my time to health + fitness lately, being in good shape + HEALTHY overall is my goal (I want to be a VIBRANT senior citizen, ha ha!)
…Children are my most favorite subjects to photograph because they are so innocent and honest, letting them just BE themselves + capturing those moments end up being some of my most favorite images
…My children inspired me to pursue photography. Friends and family encouraged me to start a business (8 years ago) doing what I am passionate about and what makes me happy – making others feel emotion through my images ♥
