Hey there!!  I’m Melissa :)  I have a lot of titles in this life of mine.  Mother…Wife…Friend…Nurse…and Photographer.  I am a lifestyle photographer based out of Lafayette, Louisiana.

I am passionate about capturing life’s little stories.  Moments that withstand the test of time.  Moments that the next generation will look back upon, only to be filled with joy and light.  Every story is different, unique, and special in it’s own way.  I want our session to reflect you and where your family is at this point in your journey.  I want your children and future grandchildren to smile at the images I have captured… for them to say WOW look at how happy that day was for them.  My own treasured photos are those that capture an emotion, a moment, a memory.  My grandmother’s soft hands holding me in her arms.  The tears my father cried as we danced at my wedding.  That moment I first held my children.  While I appreciate posed photos, sit down and smile at me photos, they are not my passion.

My family has always come first, and the rest of my life fills in around them creating a beautiful dance.  My husband and I met on Match.com, no joke… we make a perfect commercial for them.  He put so much thought into our first date, and our second, and thereafter.  He is my superman.  We have been blessed with three amazing children… full of smiles, life, and love.  We also have two dogs, two hermit crabs, and a cat.  It is a very full house!
