Meet Melissa

Well, hello there! My name is Melissa—let’s be friends!

I live in Arlington, Texas with my husband Jonathan, sweet daughter Sailor, and fluffy Pomeranian Athena. We love the Lord and are very involved with our church. My husband is an amazing videographer and a super stud. I collect vintage cameras, board games, and tattoos.

I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I purchased my first SLR camera right after high school, and realized that I wanted to make this my career. I graduated from Lamar University with a Bachelors in Photography. I started photographing people in 2008, and have been photographing professionally since 2012.

Besides faith, family is the most important part of my life. Because of the love I have for my family, my absolute favorite thing to photograph is other people's families! Every family is unique and different, so no two sessions are ever the same. I love capturing personalities, relationships, and laughter.
