Hi there, I’m Melissa! Thank you for stopping by to read more about me! I’m originally from the Midwest and have been a North Carolina native for just over a decade.
I enjoy being outdoors and photographing in natural light. When I am behind the camera, I strive to create not only fun and creative experiences but most importantly a memorable story. From the moment I pick up my camera to the moment I snap that first shot, the rush of emotions leading up to the capture initially feels like walking through a dark tunnel. There's the slight feeling of the unknown, but you keep going in search of the light at the end. Almost always you find it's the treasure you've been looking for. This is what photography feels like to me - that moment that you find the spark of emotions and events that come together to form the perfect story.
When I’m not photographing, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, golfing and traveling. I’m a HUGE dog lover and owner myself. Most of my friends and family would describe me as down-to-earth, passionate about my work, and take life in stride. Life is too short to sweat the small stuff. I can't imagine going through this life without humor as one of my favorite companions.
I believe we all take photos for a common reason. Through photography, we are able to capture the very moment we want to store a memory forever.
