Heirloom portraits that celebrate beauty and capture a moment in time.

I believe every woman should exist in photographs.

What I Believe

That might seem like a silly statement, but think about the women in your life: do you see them in the photos on the walls of their homes? Maybe they’re pictured with their children or their spouse—but do you ever see them front and center? Sadly, women are often worried they will be judged or seen as vain for taking the time to have their portraits taken. It’s my goal to break that stigma and help every woman see the beauty she carries within.

I’m a San Antonio Portrait photographer who believes in empowering women by unleashing their confidence and capturing their beauty. 

Meet Melissa

Imagine this: a day of pampering in my downtown portrait studio with your very own professional stylist doing your hair and makeup, while you sip mimosas, listen to music, and then enjoy a magazine style photoshoot fit for a celebrity. Worried about how to dress or pose? Don’t worry, girl, I guide you through everything!

Don’t think you're ready for your own photoshoot? You’re not alone! These are things I hear women say all the time!

“I’m not                  ."

Photogenic. 

“I’m not               enough.”

Pretty

“I just need to                      .”

Lose Weight

Guess what? Every woman who comes through my door has the same reservations, including the women featured on this site.

Let me tell you, girl: it's not your job to be “photogenic” or “good in front of a camera.” It's my job to help you through your entire photo shoot, and my mission is simple: to take the most beautiful photo you’ve ever seen of yourself. I am here for you and I want to invite you to love yourself again, or possibly for the first time!

I want to change the way you see yourself. I invite you to a personal consultation with me to learn what this is all about.

I will hold your hand every step of the way to ensure you have the luxury portrait experience you’ve always dreamed of. From styling your shoot, to choosing outfits and accessories, to selecting your prints and albums—I will be there to guide you, pamper you, and make you feel like the queen you are.
