Hi! Thank you so much for visiting my page! My name is Melissa, and I am a wife, mom, and natural light photographer in the Dallas Fort Worth area. I specialize in outdoor family photography, special event photography, and lifestyle newborn photography. Having an 11 year daughter has really emphasized to me the importance of having beautiful pictures to capture each stage of life. Growing up, we only had one family portrait done. That is what motivates me in my business. I know how much the pictures that I take, will be valued further down the road.
I am originally from El Paso, TX and currently live in Coppell with my husband, daughter, and two dogs. I am going on my sixth year of running my photography business. It's been such a joy! I was a first grade teacher for 7 years in my former life, but I feel that has transferred well to what I do today. I'm all about being patient, and doing my best to keep things simple.
When I'm not behind my lens, I love to be outdoors. Running, walking the dogs, feeding ducks...anything that takes me outside. That's tricky during those Texas summers though! I enjoy hiking, and just spending as much time with friends and family as I can. I will never turn down Mexican food, enjoy a good crossword puzzle, love reading magazines, and am a bit of a weather junkie.
I would love the chance to meet you, and give you those lasting memories that we cling to as time goes on. Photos are the sweetest little treasures, and I hope that I can be a part of making yours!
