my story

Melissa Profile Pic-001.jpg



Hello and welcome! My name is Melissa, and I am a natural light photographer based in sunny Tucson, Arizona. I am a momma to two blue-eyed boys who keep me on my toes; and wife to my husband and greatest supporter!
My love and passion for capturing beautiful moments through photography began long before I picked up a camera. As a young girl, when we would visit my grandmother in Canada, I would turn through the pages of her life history. I loved brushing my hand over the carefully scripted text, pausing to look at the mementos she had carefully tucked between the pages. When I would come across a photograph, I would eagerly ask her to tell me about the people in them- their stories.  
Fast-forward to my years working as a labor and delivery nurse, I found my passion for stories growing. With each newborn, I felt myself drawn to their story. The anticipation, hopes, and dreams for this precious baby inspired in me a desire to capture this sweet moment in time. This is why I fell in love with photography! I love love! I strive to create images that are organically beautiful and capture the joy, laughter, emotion and love that connects couples and families together. Whether you are new here or a returning guest, thank you for stopping by!
I look forward to telling your story together!
