Hello Friends! It’s been a week for me. I’m currently sitting on my couch, typing up this blog while bogged down by Benadryl. Apparently there is something out there that I am so allergic to that I can develop severe hives with swelling of the face and hands… Hmm…. I have an idea of what […]

Hello Friends! A while back, like… LAST YEAR… I attended my first styled photoshoot. This particular shoot set the bar really high for future styled shoots. I mean, when it comes to styled shoots, it can’t really get any better than you being one of only 5 or 6 photographers (I can’t remember exactly how […]

Hello Friends! No surprise here but this blog post is particularly late. Hahaha! LAST YEAR I was asked to photograph some families on the flightline here at Edwards AFB. They were holiday photos for a good handful of active duty military and their families. I was stoked! I was also nervous though. Why nervous? I’ll […]

Hello Friends! Amidst all this craziness lies the opportunity of time. I’m fortunate to live in a relatively isolated community during this crazy and scary covid-19 pandemic. When I leave the house to go on a walk, jog, or bike ride, I’m met with very few people or no one at all. A couple days […]

Hello Friends! I never knew how beautiful a desert landscape could be until I photographed this super cute couple here at Red Rock State Park, CA. This session is probably one of my favorite sessions ever… At least so far… hahaha Fun little story. My husband actually introduced me to Cheyenne several years ago because […]

Hello Friends! I know. It’s been a very hot minute since I’ve written a blog. I’ve been so busy! The last 7 months of my life or so has probably been the busiest season of my life. I had picked up a nannying job over the summer that started full time in September. Mean while, […]

Hello friends! I want you to meet Ross & Dawne. I was contacted earlier this year by Dawne because she wanted some photos of her and her husband, not only because it was their 20th year of marriage, but because Ross was going in for some very serious surgery. The surgery was so serious that […]

Hello Friends! Meet Aaron, Amber, & Family! Among many reasons why I love photography, my favorite one is the ability to capture the candid moment. Candid silliness, candid love, candid emotion, the candid spirit of a individual, the candid interactions of human beings… The Thompson family is full of so much wonderful silliness, love and […]

Hello Friends! Let me introduce you to myself: I’m Melissa Rose! I never really know how to start things off when talking about myself. I mean, what do I say about myself that would properly introduce you to who I am? So, instead of bombarding you with 15-20 years of information and tidbits about me, […]
