Melissa who?

Melissa who?

Believe it, or not, photography wasn't my first passion in life. I was a child of the theatre. My love of taking photos was born when I moved away from home for the first time. 3,000 miles away from home, to be exact. I went from Massachusetts to New Mexico, and everything was just. so. different. that I wanted to make sure I remembered all of it. That was in 2001, and from there I traveled the country pretty extensively, photographing people, places, and things like my life depended on it. Now, I reside in California's San Francisco Bay Area with my husband, 3 kiddos, 2 bunnies, and 1 border collie. I drink too much coffee, listen to my music a little too loud, and I'm always up for an long as I can bring my camera. It all keeps me pretty hopping, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Things I like...

  • coffee
  • road trips!
  • music
  • convincing our garden to grow
  • ...did I mention coffee?
  • laughter
  • cupcakes
  • ridiculous memes
