We are located in Ridgecrest, California and focus on natural-light, lifestyle photography for weddings, newborns, children and families.
Hello! I am Melissa, new mama to the world’s cutest, sweetest little boy, wife to my handsome Brice, and lover of all things photography. As a young child, I always told myself (and others) that I would never, ever do portrait photography, that I only liked landscape. I’d practice shooting all over the place, going through rolls and rolls of film, turning them in for developing, and waiting impatiently for the prints to come back. I finally started gaining an interest when my now-husband asked me to marry him and I looked into photographers for our engagement and wedding photos; my eyes were opened to the exciting and creative world of portrait photography (thank goodness!!) and I couldn’t stop thinking about getting my own dSLR. After waiting a few years and lots of practice, we arrive to today! I hope we get the pleasure of meeting you and helping you capture your important moments!
Welcome! Where to begin…I am a wife of nearly 14 years, mom to my sweet bug, daughter, and auntie to some of the most beautiful babes. With all of these great roles in life, I have become crazy about documenting all of life’s milestones and adventures so we can look back and remember it all as if it had just happened. Time flies by in the blink of an eye and I am so grateful that I have captured so many of the little details that are so easily forgotten. Photography has always been a passion even back to the days when all I could afford was a point and shoot! After many years with a dSLR, photography has taken on a life of its own and I really enjoy getting to spend time with clients capturing their precious moments in time. On a personal note, my favorite quote is: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams” – Eleanor Roosevelt…through photography, I am able to pursue my dreams and therefore my future. Life is such a beautiful journey and I hope we can get to share a piece of it together capturing your unforgettable moments.
Our goal is to capture moments that you don’t want to ever forget. To preserve memories that generations down the road will have to hold on to, to remember you and those special times. We hope to exceed your expectations each time we get the pleasure of documenting your occasion, whether it is a session with your family, the birth of a child, or your special wedding day!
