Senior photos are a way to mark the end of an era for you, or the start of a new one. The end or finale to a time in your life that needs to be preserved to celebrate your accomplishments in high school or college. You have had "school photos" since you were in pre-school and they were all just "sit her smile" and done and your mom and dad loved them of course but now is your time to SHINE! To really show your personality, to just be you in front of my camera. What ever you can dream of can probably be accomplished with a little thought and brainstorming between us. It can be as simple as a pretty field, or as complex as a complete styled shoot!
We can go to multiple locations, and have multiple outfit changes, and just have FUN exploring and finding cool places to shoot. Bring a friend, bring your mom or we can just set out on our own for the shoot!
You will get my undivided attention for up to 2 hours (or more) depending on the package you choose. Contact me for more information.
If there is one thing I have learned over the years, is you can't stop time but you can preserve it with photos. You can't stop children from growing up but you can look back on your photos and see how they changed over the years.
Portraits can be for ANY reason, any occasion or just because. Don't put it off until you lose weight or when the kids are older and can sit still. Don't let those things stop you from making memories and preserving them for generations. If you haven't had a session with the love of your life since your wedding day what are you waiting for? If you have not had a yearly family photo session, what is stopping you? If you and your sister just want to put on flower crowns and go out into a cotton field and mark this time in your lives DO IT! You will never regret having those photos, but I can assure you will regret NOT having them years from now. Call me let's set something up!
Your wedding photography is the SINGLE most important item you should budget for. Because let's just be real. Your dress you will wear once maybe twice, your flowers will wither away (unless silk of corse) the venue is just a building or location, that you can visit from time to time. All of the food and drink will be gone by the end of the day. When you wake up the next morning as the new Mr. and Mrs. all you will have left from your magical day are the memories made and captured with my camera your loving partner and your wedding rings. EVERY OTHER SINGLE THING will be gone. Yes I know that ALL of those things I mentioned make for beautiful photos and I am not saying they are not important and should not be exactly what you want, but don't put off photography to the end of the budget or you may be really disappointed when you have to settle for less than what you had your heart set on! I book weddings sometimes a year or more in advance. Once you say YES contact me!
“ I spent a month looking for our photographer for our wedding, then I found you. I would have paid a bajillion for you had you asked you are that good ” ~ Sarah H.
“Melody was the perfect fit for my wedding and my family, genuine, fun, very meticulous and an eye for detail she didn't miss one single moment in-fact she captured so many moments that I didn't even recall happening, I would have missed those if not for her! She is worth every penny and more” ~ Shaunee
