aboutpaddedI’m Melissa.  I love photography.  Traveling.  My husband.  My two children, Max and Zoe.  Mountains.  Reading and watching the show Lost (I still can’t figure out what happened in the end!)……I also have a total obsession with Nepal.

I hate being tickled and cooked fruit.  Fruit pie should be banned.  I know I can’t be alone in this.

Photography has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I returned to school when I was in my mid-twenties to earn my degree in photography and opened my business in 2003.  Originally named Melissa Photography, my company focused mainly on weddings and events for 6 years.

Over the years I’ve had two children and discovered the joy of portraiture. I  changed my focus to include both weddings and portraits and have renamed Melissa Photography.  Z. Noelle Photography is named after my daughter, Zoe Noelle.  I’ve also added fine art and travel photography.  You can view my fine art photography here.

I love children, I love people and I love what I do.  I’m excited to capture a lasting image of those you love.   I am also available for fine art commissions.
