I'm Melissa: Melissa means "honey bee' in Greek and I have 8 honey bees tattooed across my back. I love movies, daydreaming, leftover Chinese take out and being married. I'm addicted to learning new things and take online classes all the time. I LOVE to make mixes and I'm always updating a running playlist of songs that I'm listening to - some I love, some old favorites, and some that I want to hear again before I make a decision.
I photograph life while you are living it. I don't ever tell anyone in front of my camera to smile because I think fake smiles are the worst. I have celebrated with clients in Guatemala and Alaska, in the desert and the mountains, in backyards and churchyards. Each was equally wonderful because the magic is not in the where but always in the who. You may start out feeling awkward but you won't for long. If it's not fun then I'm not doing my job. I'm not stealing your soul but sharing it with the future.
Right now I'm in love with: Vaccines, Spring, Wanda Maximoff, colored pencils and my new firetablet reader!
I'm a photographer ninja.
So much more to see on the blog
