HI, I'M MEL:

wife, mother, musician, storyteller, photographer.​

I began my photography business in 2016, primarily photographing friends and family after graduating from college, and it has been a thrill watching it grow over the years. I appreciate you taking the time to look at some of my content.

Photography is about stories--yours, and mine--about finding a balance between subject and photographer, about creating a narrative. We are all creators of fiction. We tell the stories of our lives, the lives of others, the lives we can only imagine--but within every fiction we create lies a truth.

It is my job to see that truth, to help you tell the story you want to tell. It is my job to see you--to see the lines and angles and shadows, to see the story behind that one particular smile that can't be put into words.


It's your job to be yourself.



See My Work
