“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Melissa for three photo sessions. Not only is she highly skilled at photography, but her attitude and sense of humor make every session a joyful adventure. She knows what she’s doing so she doesn’t waste your time and she throws in little jokes and compliments to make you give lovely, natural smiles and put your best face forward. She knows how to capture the best version of yourself and make you feel truly stunning. "
MARA BLOOMFIELD SMOTHERMAN | ACTRESS & SINGER
“I worked with Melissa for two photo sessions and both times she was a delight. As someone who feels awkward in front of the camera, Melissa not only coached me into my best angles but helped me feel relaxed and have fun. With her skills, my headshots turned out fabulously, I’ve never looked better, and I couldn’t be happier with my experience."
MICAH GHARAVI | BASSOONIST
“Working with Melissa was a great experience! I usually never know what to do during photoshoots and feel like I have to perform for the camera. With Melissa, it was very different. I sat comfortably while we chatted and she took photos. The photos came out wonderfully without any force or pressure. She was absolutely fantastic."
MAX TAVELLA | BASS-BARITONE
“My experience with Melissa behind the camera was relaxed, fun and professional. She had great ideas but was also open to my opinions and always let me take part of the process during our session. The pictures she took shows my best qualities and I have used them as my professional pictures in my work as a singer including on my website, CV and in concert programs. I warmly recommend Melissa for your next pictures!"
