PATTI - "A friend of mine had seen a post from Melody and shared it with me and encouraged me to book a session. I was hesitant, I have shied away from having my photo taken for years but I gave in and let me tell you, it was the best decision ever!!! I was shocked at how comfortable Melody made me feel in front of the camera. Melody and Madison created a space for me to feel open, honest, and my best self. This shoot was LIBERATING!
MOLLIE - "After struggling through health issues and a tragic family loss, Melody captured the depth of my soul from behind her lens. Her creativity knows no bounds! This shoot showed me countless possibilities both personally and professionally. This shoot inspired me to change my life! "
JENN - "As a photographer myself, I am picky. I do not trust just ANY photographer to create a beautiful image of me. My husband and I flew from Wisconsin to have our portraits taken by Melody. I was guided and encouraged through every single step of the process. Melody is an expert in posing and direction! I haven't even mentioned the service! Melody and her team cater to ever need! I felt so loved and cared for that I did not want the day to end. If I could have stayed there for the rest of my life in that moment, I would have said YES. "
MARGAUX - "I was so nervous to book this shoot! I was worried that I would not look as beautiful as the other women Melody has photographed. EVERYONE SHOULD DO THIS AT LEAST ONCE IN THEIR LIFETIME!!! I was flat out shocked seeing my portraits for the first time. This shoot has changed the way I see myself. Did I mention I was TOTALLY SHOCKED???"
DEBBIE - "Melody, you know how much I admire you and your amazing talent--to bring to life the essence of every woman you photograph. From the moment I first met you, through all of our sessions (4 total right?) you have always made me feel like I am the most beautiful woman in the world. Thank you for sharing your gifts with me and the world!"
