invest in the moment

You can never put a price on an image, each moment only happens once. 

This is the fun part! This is where you get to see exactly what we planned come to life. It's also one of the most important stops in the process.

Images will be displayed in appropriate sizing on one of our television or projection screens. Take a quick snapshot of the walls in your home and we can even show you what your finished images will look like on your own walls.

The Reviews

I cried so much when we came to view my daughter's senior photos. Oh my goodness!!! They were ALL beautiful! I don't think we could have possibly found a better photographer. Melissa planned everything which was a HUGE help for this busy momma. The process was super simple and easier than any other photography experience we have ever had! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Where do I even begin! We had multiple sessions with Melissa for our son's senior photos and with each session she continued to deliver images that far surpassed our expectations! She took the time to really get to know Dallas and his ambitions for the future. In doing so, she captured his personality to an absolute "T"! Even the baseball coach was stunned at the images she was able to create. A true artist! Highly recommend!!

So easy to work with! I hate being in front of the camera but Melissa made it so easy! It felt more like hanging out with one of my friends than being on a photo shoot. She really took my ideas for some creative smoke bomb photos and ran with it too!! I couldn't be happier! and, mom loved them so much she hung multiple images from my session on the wall at home, not to mention the ones we gifted to family members at grad night.

When Melissa first mentioned possibly using fire in my dance images, I was a little nervous. But, she is an absolute PRO!! I never felt more confident and she had everything planned down to the very last detail. I'm the only girl from my dance team with images like this and EVERYONE was talking about how awesome they turned out. You are the best!!
