Creativity and Imagination


Photography, for all intents and purposes, is a form of artwork. Therefore, it does requires a creative mind—and plenty of imagination. A good photographer can take a great photo, but an excellent image maker must be able to look at something ordinary, or even extraordinary, and find a million different ways to interpret what they are seeing and convey those interpretations into beautiful and meaningful photos.

I compete photographically at both local and state levels and even internationally with Professional Photographers of America. I been awarded with (4) World Art Tour images, Top 10 Photographer of the year, 1st Place District Portrait Creative Award and more.

Photography is my passion and I have a very keen eye for detail to ensure that all elements within the photo—the lighting, the composition, the subject, and everything else in between—work together harmoniously to convey the perfect piece of art for your home.

A great portrait does not only capture emotion to tell a story, it should also have beautiful composition and gorgeous lighting. A great photographer will also focus on the details of the image to ensure every aspect of the image flows consistently.

Before your session, we will cover posing tips, where to put your hands, how to stand, and many other tips that take a picture from great to Stunning!

"Melonie is absolutely wonderful! She has been photographing my family for years! She is so creative and a dream to work with. Getting you to relax and have a blast is her specialty! She has done everything for my family from senior portraits to grand babies! Melonie and Tim even made a trip back to Michigan and took the time to do a last minute engagement session for my son and future daughter in law and are traveling back to do their wedding in the fall. We are so excited to have her capture their special day and have precious photos to remember the day!"
