Hi!!! My name is Melanie and I am married to an amazing and God-loving man named Jonathan. After a career as a teacher and then a corporate event planner, I became a mother of two beautiful children and now homeschool them full time. I have always had a passion for photography, which I inherited from my mother and have advanced that love through continuing education and training. Although I began simply photographing my children, it quickly escalated to capturing moments for my family, friends and then my business opened! Photography is the way that I can express myself artistically and show people the way that I see life ~ through the camera.
I received my digital camera from Jonathan as my wedding present! Afterwards, I was adamant that I would take classes to learn how to use the camera and have committed myself to learn how to take amazing pictures and capture the most important moments of my Client’s lives. I have done this through seminars, classes, online photography groups, conferences, workshops, hands on-training and more.
So why do I do this? This is my passion. Henry Thoreau aptly stated, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.” That is exactly what I am trying to do.
I began photographing families, then children, then weddings, then births…..and then I found my passion in the babies, so that is where I focus the majority of my sessions now. Newborn sessions take place in my Frisco, Texas home studio where you will find a very cozy and relaxing environment while I love on your sweet baby. With 32 hours of newborn safety training, you can be confident that your newest little addition is in the best of care. From the rolls on their back, to quick smiles, close ups of the longest eyelashes and the tiny tiny little toes – I couldn’t be doing anything else more to make my life so happy!
