MEET ME

hey, I’m Melissa

a film & digital photographer specializing in editorial boudoir, branding, & motherhood photography in northern virginia

having been in front of the camera myself, I understand how vulnerable and confronting intimate photography sessions like boudoir can be and I take my role as your photographer very seriously.

My sessions are very laid-back & playful, with a focus on textures, movement, & authentic moments

while your session is ultimately a collaboration between us, i will be leading you through the entire experience so you feel empowered & confident.

“My experience with Melissa was nothing short of amazing. This woman is transforming boudoir photography in an authentic way. And WE LOVE THAT FOR US! Thanks for making more women comfortable with who they are on and off camera”

I work out of studio spaces in Annapolis, Maryland – however, we can plan a session at a location of your choice, including your home, an outdoor location, or a styled home rental/studio near you. Rental fees may apply for an alternate location.

I only share images with your explicit, written permission. No one will see your images before you do.
