About Melanie

Photos make me happy!








I am a wife and mom of four who believes that unless you want a professional photographer to move into your house, you better learn how to get those bring-a-tear-to-your-eye photos of your kids yourself!  As the mom, you have what every pro is after: the spontaneous, photo-worthy, amazing ‘life’ moments … at your fingertips everyday. How wonderful is that!

My passion is to help moms get comfortable with their SLR cameras and encourage them to move past the mug shot stage to capture the unique stories of their kids with their photography. I know how hard it can be to get the shots you want in the world of carpooling and peanut butter; you may even think that there is something wrong with your camera when you can’t get the beautiful photos you want. I have learned a lot about my camera and taking pictures of my kids the hard way. My goal is to save you time and frustration so you can quickly be successful with your camera and not miss one more opportunity to capture a memory.  Even through I am not a pro, I can relate to your drive to get it right and will do my best to help you on your journey to become a better photographer and a Happy Camera Mom!

So grab your camera, grab your kids and grab your car keys (not sure if you need them but that is what I am always doing!) and let’s see what we can learn!
