Photography & Design go together like sugar and spice.

Or peanut butter and jam.

Or coffee and a really large mug.

Visual art is my jam.

I'm Mel

After years of giving my all as a front-line employee for large companies, I realized it was time to stand up and shine.

I’ve always loved photography, but I knew I needed more than just camera skills if I was going to pay the bills.

So I put myself through school (with the help of my husband) and started learning about design and business. Now I’m a photographer and graphic designer helping myself and others live their dream.

Five things I love this week:
β€’ My first cup of French press coffee in the morning (let's be honest - that's every week)
β€’ Golden summer sunsets (even when I'm looking into one for a photograph and trying not to squint!)
β€’ Our two cats sleeping in sunbeams β€’ Digging into a new knit project
β€’ Eating this year's first tomato from the garden, still warm from the sun πŸ‘Œ

  • Are you taking "me" time today? 
Today I'm taking time in the garden to listen to the bees and tend to the weeds. It's the perfect recharge before starting a new week.

  • Here is your chance to pause and take a deep breath. 😊
.
Yesterday, after getting home from adventuring and photos, I bent and twisted and suddenly my lower back was Very Angry. There's nothing like your body telling you in no uncertain terms that you need to slow down! .
Today I'm going to listen to my body and move a little slower + breathe a little deeper. .
