I'm Mel, the girl behind the lens! I'm so glad you're here.
Meet your Photographer
I am a portrait photographer, specializing in seniors, newborns, couples, families, maternity sessions- you name it! I am located out of Northeast, WI, but travel opportunities are always welcomed (seriously, I love traveling- let's go explore!). I love meeting new people through sessions + capturing their individual stories.
When it comes to photography, I'm a firm believer in capturing all of the raw, genuine, and emotion-filled moments as they unfold naturally. (Candids are my favorite!) I am a lover of natural light, golden hour, and all things laughter. So if you’re hoping for a more relaxed and laid back session, we’re probably the perfect fit. I'd love to meet you and be a part of capturing your life moments!
I've had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember. Even as a kid, I overloaded my family's film camera with anything and everything. I started off taking photos of random objects, pets, flowers, landscape, you name it! Once I got older, I purchased a digital camera and quickly transitioned to putting faces in front of my lens. Years later, a real camera, and here we are! I’m so blessed to have turned my hobby into a business, and I am enjoying every minute of it.
Other than doing photography part-time. I am currently on an exciting (and stressful) journey of becoming an Occupational Therapist at Concordia University of Wisconsin, and I can't wait to be able to do what I love every day. I recently started the accelerated graduate program (at 20 years old--ekk!), so I'm busier than you can probably imagine. My dream is to work in a school setting while continuing my photography business on the side.
When I'm not behind the camera or with my head stuck in a textbook, you'll most likely find me doing crafty DIY projects (Pinterest has become an obsession), watching movies, exploring the outdoors, or shopping for new props. I adore anything vintage or rustic looking. I have a passion for fashion trends, makeup, and all things beauty! I love sharing my free time with the people that make me the happiest (especially my nieces and nephew!)
I genuinely believe my favorite thing about life is making connections with those around me. Whether we bond over a similar hobby or a strange obsession (mine's Crocs), I can't wait to meet you and learn what makes you, YOU!
