Hello! I'm Melanie
I grew up in the small town of Luxemburg, WI, and I've had a passion for Photography as long as I can remember. I started off taking photos of random objects, pets, flowers, landscape--- basically anything and everything, but I quickly transitioned to putting faces in front of my lens. I’m someone who is blessed enough to have turned a hobby into a business, and I am enjoying every minute of it.
I am currently on an exciting (and stressful) journey to 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 imaginable. My dream is to work in pediatrics while continuing my photography business on the side.
When I'm not behind the camera, 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 love sharing my free time with the people that make me the happiest.
BUT if you weren't already aware, I am a portrait photographer, specializing in seniors, newborns, couples, families, maternity sessions- you name it! I am located primarily out of Northeast, WI, but travel opportunites are welcomed (seriously, I love traveling- let's go explore!). I love meeting new people through sessions and learning 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!
