am a Southern California Native who moved to Sonoma County in 2000 for college and haven't looked back since.
My family is my life, my motivation, my everything. I use my love for my family as inspiration to truly engage with you and your family to create authentic portraits you will cherish forever. I don't take life too seriously so we're gonna have one heck of a time getting to know one another!
I take a more photojournalistic approach as I capture candid memories from afar and spend small but productive amounts of time capturing beautiful, timeless, non posey portraits. I like to keep everything as natural, fun, and effortless as I can. I want the photo to not only be a beautiful portrait of you but a memory of a fun time had while capturing it!
Melissa makes me a better Mom, Wife, and Photographer. Up until February of 2015, I was the sole photographer and ran the business all by myself. Which was easy at first. But through a tremendous amount of patronage of my clients my business grew beyond what I was capable of doing alone. I hired someone to help run the day to day so I could focus on my clients photographs and experience. I was reluctant to hire someone to take on this task and I never wanted my clients to feel that they were just another number being passed off to someone else for the business side of their experience. But after handing off the reins to Melissa I've been proved wrong in my fears. She is simply WONDERFUL. She keeps me sane, organized, and energized for each and every shoot. So when you reach out to inquire about how I can capture your wedding day or capture your beautiful family, she will be the one on the other end of that rapid response!
ehind every sucessful business there is a backbone, someone who's valued endlessly. This is Melissa.
