“Beyond just being incredibly professional, experienced, and knowledgeable, Melissa is also extraordinarily kind. If you’re like me and find yourself feeling rather shy and awkward in front of the camera, have no fear — Melissa will save the day! Throughout our entire session she made sure to provide clear instructions on how to pose as well as shout out affirmations that will simply fill anyone with the most confidence. At the beginning of our session, I clued her in on some insecurities of mine, and she made sure to showcase me in my best light! She even offered me lovely advice on my chosen outfits for the day:)
From the very beginning, Melissa was very responsive. She replied to all my messages in a very timely manner. She arrived at our agreed location early so that she could scope the area out ahead of time and find the best spots with proper lighting. This meant that when I arrived, we were immediately able to step right in and get some great shots! Finally, she 100% honors her 10 day turnaround time for edited photos.

I’m a first generation college student, and Melissa has provided me with grad photos that beautifully and permanently mark this meaningful accomplishment for me and my family.”
