about Melissa

read more

A mother who taught me the value of effort and a father who taught me to follow my passion. A great grandmother who gifted fine art supplies. A grandfather who always lifted confidence with a kind word. And so many others. I believe that so much of me is a product of my efforts with the gifts that these, and a loving Heavenly Father gave me. With this arsenal, I headed to college, earned my degree in Art History and Curatorial Studies, and found a man who would stand beside me through it all. We've settled in Frisco, Texas, where despite my wanderings I've always found home, and are building a life I am proud of!  I feel quite privileged to do something that I LOVE, and that I feel is both a culmination of my gathered gifts and a challenge to stretch me to new heights. 

Thanks for stopping by!

You need a photographer with industry insight and an eye for detail. Someone who will catch those little details that are out of place, adjust the blinds, and move things around for listing your home with your best foot forward.
