as it turns out? I just happen to know one

The bittersweet feeling of your last bit of high school, yet that eagerness to take on the world.

As your senior photographer I pinky promise to show off your unique personality and help you celebrate one of the greatest moments of your life.

are you looking for a senior photographer who’s FUN just like you?


oh hey there you!

I’m Melissa and I’m a senior photographer living in Milton, Georgia. I’m an award-winning and published photographer specializing in senior photography. I’ve been a photographer for over 17 years and have spoken live and in person at conferences as well as taught other photographers in….you guessed it.... photography.

As a mom to 3 teens (and one 6 year old who thinks she’s a teen), I know exactly how to connect with seniors. I believe that senior portraits should be all about you and your personality and it’s my promise to make that happen.

get to know me better!

So you say it’s time for senior portraits? Well that’s exactly my speciality! Of course, your school requires the traditional drape photo for the yearbook along with the cap and gown image. But, what about the real you?  Senior year is all about celebrating YOU. Why not have senior portraits to reflect that? A session with me is fun and laid back resulting in images that show your personality and uniqueness. I’m an absolute whiz at finding out what’s important to you and pulling that out in the end result. Plus? We'll have a great time doing it. I will help you with every step. That way, you don't have to stress over wardrobe, location, hair, anything!  

Yes! I’d love to know more!

My style is clean, candid and authentic. I don’t believe in over-edited images. All of your photos are hand-edited and true to color. I will help you look absolutely beautiful and handsome without overdoing it. Your images won't be heavily photoshopped and you'll look just like your best self. 

I deliver a variety of images in your private gallery; with a good mix of candid and those looking-at-the-camera shots that parents love best.

Here’s where you can see how I capture my own girls’ lives, in short, often silly, stories and images. I talk quite a bit about my Big Mom Failures (do you have a Mom of the Year trophy shelf, too?!), water safety, life with teens + toddlers and sometimes client work, too. Taking a look at my blog will give you a really great idea of my goofy personality and why all the kids love me so. The blog also shows you my serious side and how fiercely I love these people in my life.
