I’m Melissa, a color happy gal and a lover of impromptu dance parties and anything that involves bacon and avocado. Folks who know me well would describe me as a child at heart who’s got some killer party planning skills and an obsession with unicorns and mermaids. I’m the photographer who will do one-handed cartwheels to get your kids to smile if the need arises (yes, I took gymnastics as a kid).
I photograph people who are looking for someone to capture the joy and chaos of their everyday lives and important milestones with a unique eye for detail, color and genuine emotion. With a background in studio art and photojournalism, I strive to tell stories with my photography using an approach that is relaxed, natural and fun.
I am fluent in Spanish and my previous work with non-profit organization Mennonite Central Committee has taken me to 26 countries around the world.
I am based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with with more than 15 years of professional photography experience in photojournalism, portraits, weddings, travel and events.
If you're looking for a fun, creative and affordable family, portrait or lifestyle photographer, I encourage you to be in touch!
