Hi friend! I'm Melissa.

I'm a natural light photographer based in

Land O' Lakes & Tampa Bay area, but I will go anywhere with you!

I'm originally from New Jersey, but on one cold, COLD day, I woke up 2 hours earlier than I had to to chip ice off my car for the last time.

I decided to HECK with snow, and found myself here in the sunny state of Florida (aka Hell, at least that's what it feels like in July).

Apart from being a low-grade (and low-paid) comedian, I'm a wife & a mom (my kids bark), and an architectural designer. Architecture & Interior Design will forever be my first love, but photography is a mistress that has always sat next to it warmly in my heart. I just can't help it - I am in love with love, the storytelling candids, and all the belly laughs.

I can't wait to meet you and capture your magic ♥️



“Melissa did my first ever Boudoir shoot and I can’t thank her enough. She made me feel so comfortable, confident and gave so much guidance! Her turn around time was PHENOMENAL! When I got my sneaks back they literally brought me to tears! 10/10 recommend using melissa!”
