Hi! I'm Melissa!

When I graduated high school, my parents did something amazing... They gifted me with my first digital camera! Since then, I haven't been able to put it down.

I found a hobby.
I found a creative outlet.
I found a passion
And now, I've made a career!

What started off as merely a hobby over 10 years ago has lead me to where I am today! I am passionate about photography & about capturing moments in time that will be saved & cherished forever. Nothing can compare to the feeling of looking back over your special day, event, or family photos. I want to help you make sure that you have lasting memories. Ones that you want to frame.
Ones you want to share with your family & friends for ages to come!

Fun facts about me:

I am a wife, Air Force veteran, bonus mom to two boys, & kitty mommy to Luna!

I was born & raised in "the Valley", aka the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles,
where I currently reside.

My husband & I love to explore & are active outdoor people. We love to hike the Eastern Sierra's, mountain bike, snow board, long board, & play in the Southern California oceans.

We love to explore local cities, restaurants, shows, festivals, & fairs!

Black & White photography is what captured my interest. Often, you will see a duplicate photo in black & white because, most times, I cannot decide which I love more; 
the color image or the black & white image.

Landscape photography is where my passion for photography really grew. Ansal Adams has always been a favorite of mine because of his ability to capture landscape in black & white in a way that manifests a sense of awe. I still maintain landscape photography as a hobby today & always will.
