Ultimate Children's Photography Experience Sessions!

Meet Melissa

As a small child, I was given a 110mm camera and there began my love for photography.  I was raised in the suburbs of Kansas City and attended the University of Kansas, starting out in business, only to return to my love of the arts and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1996.  While in college, I freelanced for a local music magazine, the Renaissance Festival and worked with several local musicians in creating album covers.  I then moved to Wichita and worked in pharmaceutical sales.  But after 10 long years and overcoming a life threatening illness, I have come back to my love of photography and a slower pace lifestyle focusing on my family, friends and God.  I love to spend time with my family and friends and my horses.  I love to travel and capture beautiful images for people to enjoy.
