Hello & Welcome!

I'm Melissa!

I'm an introverted, T-shirt wearing, animal loving, nature admiring, lucky wife, mother of 3, photography and birth obsessed lady.

 

From the time I was little, I had always wanted to be a vet. I was all about animals 24/7. I had pet snakes, lizards, and the usual dogs and cats. I even convinced my mom to get me a bird to help me learn and gain experience. Later on, I realized I couldn't handle the downside and was lost without a plan B.

 

I have always been interested in photos and the story behind them. As a kid, I would go through my grandmother's old photo albums any chance I got! Her face used to light up as she recalled the events and people in the pictures. Photography was always a fun hobby for me during my youth.

 

-Fast forward quite a few years -

 

I was now married with 3 beautiful kids. I took photos any chance I got. I realized how much I loved it and the artistic side of me was happy to come out.

 

My ah-ha moment was when I saw photos of a birth. WOW! Such raw emotion during the most important day in a parent's life! I have taken photos most of my life- why not when my 3 babies arrived? Seeing them really made me think about my birth experiences, my family, my absent memories, and just how important it is to document those beloved bits in time!

 

I like to think I got a late start on what I was meant to do!
