• Well Hello There!

    Thanks for stopping by. My name is Melissa and I like to take pictures...a lot of them really....of you. I am always learning about this beautiful thing called photography. Life is precious and so, so sweet. It's important to have memories of these moments in life. As much as I love photography, I enjoy learning peoples stories even more. Where'd you come from? What do you do? What are your favorite things?

    Here's my story. I'm 27 years old. I have a sweet husband, Josh, beautiful baby girl, Lillian and cuddly pup, Wrigley. Originally from Chicago suburbs, we moved to Phoenix five years ago for life adventure number one. I teach part time as an itinerant teacher of children who are deaf and hard of hearing. And I'm a part time stay at home momma. I never pass up a good nonfat iced carmel macchiato. I love organization...like a lot. I hate socks and if I must wear them, they have to be inside out. My heart yearns to travel. Anywhere, really. Ireland, Italy, Greece, New Zealand. Also, one day, we will go to Africa and then bring home a baby.

SLPS and Deaf Educators

This past weekend I got to do a photoshoot with two SLPs
Speech Language Pathologists
I used to think deaf educator was the only cool job to have
But I was wrong
SLPs are pretty cool too
I might be one of those instead when I grow up

These two beautiful ladies quickly became my friends
They needed some professional looking photos so they gave me a shout

I’ll let them show you their professional photos, here are some of our more fun ones

first up is Sarah.

look! They’re friends!

Now Monica.

Not the most flattering photo but gets the point across...were just strictly professional coworkers on serious business :)

 Monica is starting her very own speech clinic
Ladybug Speech Therapy 
How cool, right?
(I’m hopin to get in on some awesome “clinical interactions” with Monica as my SLPA certification requires. That’s right folks, I decided what I’m going to be when I grow up. Part time SLPA  and part time photographer)

Here are some photography sidenotes

1. I am currently accepting a very specific donation
an Apple magic mouse 
I’m pretty much over the logitech wireless

2. I’m also in the market for an external hard drive
any advice?

3. I am in the process of making business cards.

4. I really really REALLY like doing portraits of people. Like A LOT. It’s my favorite. I have some newborn shots coming up, can’t wait!

5. AND I bought official white CD sleeves from Target
No more stapled sheets of paper for my clients.
No, siree.
(is that still a saying?)
Only the best for my clients

I’m totally moving up in the photography world.
