I'm Melissa!

I'm a full-blooded Kentucky girl married to a crazy cajun. The best part of me is my 5 boys and my little princess caboose. I live for autumn, and I'm a caffeine addict. I love sleeping in, Jesus, my candle wax warmer, music, cinnamon toast crunch and all things photography related. On the weekdays, you can find me in my pj's listening to 'infinite acoustic' on spotify, and working on my computer in between caring for my youngest two and baby. My plate stays pretty full so you will almost never see me glamed up during the week, in fact, i'm happy when i'm just able to shower...so I love a good girls night to reset.

I am so passionate about photographing your families. Families and children are what I know so I'm able to curate an easygoing, fun, memorable session that will want you coming back for more. I pride myself on being able to crack the toughest kids, in fact, i'm also called 'The Treat Lady'
I take great honor that you trust me to be let in to your most private, special  life moments. I absolutely adore my clients and you will feel that at every session.

So don't wait another minute...call me today!
You won't regret it  :)
                                      xoxo

As a lifestyle photographer, I am here to document the everyday moments that all add up to create the big memories you look to cherish most. This is my passion and I will do the work to make sure your session is as comfortable, carefree, and memorable as it can possibly be to create the images that show your life well lived.

 Melissa is the absolute best! She brought my cranky, camera shy toddler out of her shell, and produced amazing pictures of my family. I have never been comfortable in front of the camera, but she is so easy to work with (and so go with the flow) so I was able to relax and enjoy myself. My husband even had a good time, and, lets be real, that alone is a testimony to her awesomeness right there! Toddler AND husband approved y'all!

"She does a fantastic job! My grandaughter was running crazy and I thought there was no way she could have gotten any decent shots, but she got a bunch of amazing pictures. Plus Violet loved her, and she's very picky about who she likes! She'll be the one I call any time I need more pictures taken."
