Photography & design go together like sugar and spice.


Or peanut butter and jam.


Or coffee and a really big mug.

“Mel has an eye for magic! She’ll suggest a setting or pose and I’ll have no idea how it’s going to turn out, but when I see the final photo I’m blown away. I’m truly in awe of her talent and vision.” -Tilura

Bravery means you can be nervous and do it anyway

You have a case of the portrait nerves but don’t want to let it stop you. You know that if you can move through the discomfort it will totally be worth it.

It’s okay to be nervous especially if you’re not used to being in front of the camera. Unless you’re one of those magical people who learned to ride your bike on the first try, new things take practice. I’ll walk you through what’ll happen over coffee and discuss what you’re looking for from your session so you can feel comfortable.

Whether this is your first metaphorical rodeo or your seventh, I have your back

Visual art is my jam.

Before we talk about me, I wanna talk about you.

What gets you excited? What makes you feel like breaking out the fancy glasses and the good chocolate? Or stay up late on a week night working on it?

Whether you’re here for portraits or design (or both!) I can’t wait to hear about you.

Want to work with someone as excited about your project as you are?
