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, weddings- you name it! I am based 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 a full-time Occupational Therapist in a local school district. I recently married my high school sweetheart, and we live in the cutest little home out in the country! We are expecting our first baby in Spring of 2023!
When I'm not creating magic with my camera, you'll most likely find me shopping, playing with makeup, adventuring outdoors, scrolling through Pinterest, or spending time with my fam and friends, most likely with caffeine in my hand!
I genuinely believe my favorite thing about life is making connections with those around me. Whether we bond over a similar hobby, the same taste in music, or a strange obsession, I can't wait to meet you and learn what makes you, YOU!
