Hi, I'm Melanie!

I am a purveyor of the photographic arts. I am inspired by connection and adventure. My work captures humor, love, truth and kindness. I love to create. I photograph because I must. Get the nitty-gritty here.

Between documenting details, I capture moments that happen in a split second… moments that reflect love, grace, wonder and a deep shared connection.

When I work with a couple or family, my main goal is always to capture their authentic dynamic. I find ways to bring the best out of each person. I encourage them to connect with one another and let loose. This process always yields the best results. It’s what allows me to capture photographs that make you feel like you were there. And it's one of my favorite things about being an artist. Documenting their life in the most genuine way will allow their story to be retold for years through photographs.
