Let's Have Some Fun

Yes, Fun- you read that right!

Trust The Process


Choose me as your ringleader and let me guide you through the process. It might seem unorthodox, counter productive or possibly uncomfortable- but your end result will amaze you. We'll stay on the move, be sure there's always something to giggle about and, if kids are involved, we'll follow their lead. I'm playful, easy going and a creative thinker & I pride myself on my ability to put people at ease- let's do it!

What does this ringleader charge?

Call Me Mel

I am a proud mother to the three awesome kiddos, and a wife to one of the coolest guys around, Jeff. My main career for the past 24 years has been serving the public at 30,000 feet in the air for one of the BEST airlines in the industry. I am blessed by that job and love it to my core! Even more than flying, however, I love to see life through the viewfinder of my camera. I believe in the power of storytelling through images and capturing connection in life's littlest moments. The days are short and memories fade so don't forget to take the picture!
