my oldest daughter Olivia turns twelve next month. I decided I wanted to be a photographer a few months before she was born, so her face spent A LOT of time in front of the camera as I practiced. she's grown up just a bit since then. she's still one of my favorite people to photograph.....when I can get her to be serious 💕

just a month away from Spring, and North Carolina got their first snow of the winter. Just a few inches, but enough to call off school today and tomorrow (ask my kids how excited they are about this!). It's bringing me back to our family trip to Lake Tahoe in November where it snowed on us for five days straight. We had the most incredible time! That's where I got this quickie photo of my kids on the side of Mt. Rose highway to use for our annual Christmas card. what's the weather like where you are???

it’s Friday, which I hear is the official day for introductions on IG. and if you can believe it, I’ve never done one before! So I did what any good business owner does. I googled how to do one! If I was able to learn photography and build my business with google searches, then I would say it has proven to be a valid tool! #noshame

Hi! My name is Melissa Vossler and obviously I’m the woman behind this (sorely neglected!) Instagram page! I’ve been in business for TEN years and have learned so many things along the way. I’ve also photographed so many beautiful faces. It’s been both a humbling and fulfilling journey!
.
.
Here are a few facts about me:
1. I’ve been married for 15 years and am the mama to four kids ranging in age from 13 to 7!
2. After 33 years of living in California, my husband and I decided it was time to begin a new adventure, so we up and moved to Raleigh North Carolina, where we just celebrated 4 years as residents (and I've also revealed to you just how young I am!)
3. I was homeschooled from 1st grade until I graduated and started Junior College at the age of 16. If you asked me at that age what I wanted to be when I grew up, it was a neo-natal nurse!
4. I’m a 9w1 (or “The Dreamer”) on the enneagram.
5. I have an unhealthy addiction to iced vanilla lattes and Grey’s Anatomy. There are no programs to help. I’m sure my family has looked into it.
.

Thank you for following me! I’m hoping to be more present here this coming year, so bear with me as I make some necessary changes (like adding my portrait work!) and learn the ropes around here! ❤️

About Melissa

I'm a lover of Jesus, my family, a good iced vanilla latte, Instagram, "hippie music" as my husband calls it, Madewell jeans, chocolate, Greys Anatomy and Top Chef, white bedspreads, vacations, giving gifts, lazy days, the smell of citrus, and of course, taking pictures! I think happiness is a choice, life is an adventure, and it's important to always say "thank you" and "I love you". When I was in college, professors would ask me what I wanted to do with my life and I always answered enthusiastically, “be a mom!”. When a dream is placed in your heart, there is no escaping it. I admit I'm not very organized, but I do have drive and determination and great critical thinking skills! I'm a glass is full and overflowing kind of girl - the eternal optimist! I'm super sentimental and love to use exclamation marks!! What can I say, I'm an excited person. I’d have 19 kids and counting if my husband didn’t have common sense. My parents have been married for 40 years and I'm so inspired by their commitment and love. I can't cook, my husband can (no really! he graduated with a bachelors from culinary school!), and we're both free spirits.

My husband Trei and I met in college and have been happily married for FOURTEEN(!!!) years now. Together we've made four of the most amazing and beautiful children. Lucas is 12, Olivia is 11, Madelyn is 8, and Grace is 6. Yes, we are crazy. No, we wouldn't have it any other way! In fact, my photography journey didn't start when I was 10 and given my first camera - nor was it started out of a passion ignited in college. My son Lucas was 3 months old and it was time for me to go back to my desk job. I really really didn't want to leave my baby. One afternoon, my husband asked me what I would do instead and I casually responded that "I'd be a photographer." A few days later I quit my job and we drained our savings account of every single penny and invested in a Canon DSLR with a sweet lens. (See what I mean about us both being free spirits?) I thought the camera would do all the work. A few days into ownership, the harsh reality hit me, and I realized that if I wanted my photos to look anything like the phenomenal photographers I followed online - that I'd have to do way more than rely on my camera. After one year, a lot of books, a lot of googling, and A LOT of practicing - I was in "business". I never ever would have imagined that this tiny little dream I had would blow up into a business I absolutely love, or that it would afford me the opportunity to stay home raising my babies. What an honor it is to do what I do. I’m invited into peoples lives, to photograph the ones that are the most important to them. And then, after I’ve had the opportunity to glimpse into the beauty that makes up their lives - I leave with a whole new love and respect for this world and the relationships we are so blessed to get to experience. I also leave with new friends and really beautiful photos. It’s a total win/win for me!

If you love what you see - then I hope in time we can become friends, and I can take really beautiful photos of you too!

xo, Melissa
