This is my fabulous, friend Melissa (isn’t she gorgeous!?). Melissa works as a model for Modelogic. Melissa and I become friends over our bonding and love of chalk paint –http://nickimetcalf.wpengine.com/diy-with-chalk-paint/ (Click the link for the whole blog post). I contacted Melissa who I found on Facebook and asked if she could teach me how to do this crafty trade. She agreed and we got together and seriously- match made in Heaven. Lovvvvved hanging out with her! Now get this- I won’t disclose her age. . .okay, okay she’s 40 and she has 3 children. Two of them being in high school and she looks this freaking young!? I’m tell’n ya- those models know how to keep themselves looking fresh and young! I would have swore she was my age! I’ll try to get her to dish out her secrets on look’n so good and I’ll share them with ya! 😉 So Melissa is from Canada (she hasn’t said “eh” yet) and is a wonderful mother, wife and artist. She is as laid back, and down to earth as they come!!! Not to mention sweet as all get out!! She contacted me for headshots, we got together again, and as before, it was so much fun! God is always bring the coolest people into my life, I couldn’t be more grateful!!!

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
