About Melissa

My Journey as Your Heritage Keeper

I am a wife of an amazing man we will call him honeyman, A Mother of two amazing Women and the Meme’ of a beautiful two year old named Benny he is my whole world.  Dutchess is my little sweety.  You will see her popping in here now and again. Love my beaglier.  I love creating, reading and movies.  

I have been a lover of people’s stories as they spoke about their families ever since I was a young girl. I remember going to work with my mom as she painted houses, I would meet her clients and listen to their stories of family generations.

 I remember this one woman I met, she came to America by the way of WWII.  I will never forget how her hair was curled and pinned to the side.  She wore red lipstick and smelled of sweet bread.  There was a portrait sitting on the side table, I remember her telling me that it was her family and they did not survive the war.  They were killed.  I did not know it then the extent of the pain but what I did see was the smile on her face as she shared with me a 8 year old little girl the love of her memories.  This.. this is the very reason I am a photographer today.  

I am a curator of your visual story.  What does that mean?  Through the portraiture I am blessed to preserve and capture you, your children and your relationships.  This is done by my being a witness of your moments.

I am passionate about leaving a piece of your family history here for generations to view, to cherish and to pass down to their children.  

The reason is quite simple, I love making people happy.  Seeing the smiles as they see their portrait for the first time and creating an experience that brings joy is what fills my heart.
