You love photos. You love your people. You want more than just gorgeous images - I mean you do want gorgeous images - but you also want real ones. You want to really relax and enjoy your moments, without worrying about how your pictures will turn out. You want to feel comfortable in front of the camera… gulp! Is that even possible? (Yes! Yes! Yes!) You want something that captures the real you. The beautiful, real you.

"Mel’s talent for bearing witness, engaging, and capturing the little nuances of our lives has left us teary-eyed more times than I can count when we see the final product."
