First off, lets state the obvious...Nantucket and Cape Cod are a place I love to be, and most days I can't believe how lucky I am to get to live my dream job there.

When I am not capturing your memories, you can find me with my husband Greg, and our four blessings, Emma, Grady, Reid, and Maddie, along with our Golden Retriever Molly. They are my inspiration, and why I do what I do. As a family we love to be outside, especially at the beach, or really anywhere near the ocean!

If you know me, you know some of my favorite things are home design, a fresh new pair of sneakers, a good pom beanie, and an oversized scrunchie in my hair. Some of the ways I survive these long New England winters are having lots of homemade soup nights, twinkle lights around my house, a crackling fire all day, and lots of dips in the hot tub.

Even with these long, cold winters, I am still a year round iced coffee girl. If you know, you know! And if you have browsed my website you can also see that I am also in love with Golden Retrievers, they just make me smile so much. Can't get enough! I also am a follower of Jesus, and I believe that his word is true. Traveling and adventuring with my family is what I daydream about. We love checking National Parks off of our lists.

And Anthropologie & Target I am convinced are the best therapy! 

If any of this made you smile, let's chat! 

and I am so glad you are here!

I'm Melissa,

"Melissa is an absolute bright light, and overall joy!"

Documenting things, but I really knew I wanted to pursue a career in photography when I was pregnant with our first baby, our Emma Joy. I realized how hard it was to find a photographer that treated my inquiry as more than just an opportunity for income, but that truly enjoyed what they did, and was willing to go the extra mile to capture those real, authentic moments.

 And on top of that someone that wanted to keep it simple… I really just wanted pure, clean images that captured us in a genuine way. So from there, I started applying what I knew I wanted in a photographer, and found out quickly that I wasn’t alone.

I have always loved taking pictures
