This is it. You finally made it!

CONGRATS!!! You are about to enter your very last year of high school! YAY!! I remember what a strange feeling that was for me...There I was, floating somewhere between my adolescence and adulthood. It was a scary, exciting, + bittersweet time in my life and I could not wait for what was ahead! This really is one of the BEST years of your life, with SO many opportunities and possibilities in front of you! Take this year to really find yourself, to figure out what you want to do with your life and just go for it! But make sure it's something that makes your heart sing! Now, let's talk about the important stuff...You will never be this version of yourself ever again, and this year is going to FLY by, so be sure to capture who YOU are at this moment in time! These pictures will probably be on your parent's + grandparents walls for like the. rest. of. time. so you want to make sure you LOVE them! I would be absolutely HONORED to capture amazing senior portraits for you! Have fun checking out the rest of my website, or if you're READY TO BOOK your custom experience, you can get in touch with me here!

Hello Friend, I'm Melissa!

A coffee drinking, Netflix binging, chihuahua snuggling, laid back kind of girl. I love Jesus, my amazing husband, and my family. I hate crowds, talking on the phone + watching commercials! Dogs over cats, coffee over tea, sweet + salty (depends on my mood!), staying in over going out. I'm a perfectionist + a creative junkie, spending most of my time taking photos, doing hair, refinishing furniture, crafting + decorating my house! I absolutely love photographing seniors, because you guys are fun, inspiring, and ready for anything! Let's get in touch to plan your custom experience today + get you in front of my camera! (And don't worry, my sessions are super relaxed + FUN so you will never feel awkward! I will tell you what to do every step of the way!)
