Remember When - Portraits by Melinda | About
My name is Melinda. I am 42 years old, and it doesn’t even bother me that my friends still call me Moo. I am a wife, a mom, and a grandma. My family is my life. I am a lover of Dr. Pepper. Shoes annoy me. Long walks in the evening are a must. I’m just a small town girl, with a love for photography. I can still remember the first time I picked up a camera. My brother and I both got 110 Kodak cameras for a Christmas present when I was almost 12 years old: I was hooked. Then, my Jr. year in high school, I took Photojournalism and my Dad worked hard to get me my first SLR camera, a Minolta film camera. I learned the basics to exposure, lighting, and composition. I learned how to develop film in a darkroom. I had an amazing time that year, even though I did actually flood the darkroom. Times have changed but my love for photography has remained the same and I am honored that you have chosen me to help you remember when... your babies were little... your children were changing...and your family was growing.

I shoot both in studio and on location, and use both off camera flash and natural lighting (although 95% of the time, I will be using some form of off camera flash). I believe in being 100% prepared for each and every photo shoot, and sometimes just a a little pop of light can make or break a portrait. Not to mention, with off camera flash the creative possibilities are endless!

I believe my clients deserve nothing but the best! When you enter my studio, you will find my walls are adorned with large framed prints, gorgeous canvas gallery wraps, and vivid metal prints- all products that I offer for sale from top quality professional printing companies. I also offer beautiful hard back books and mini accordion albums, which are always a huge hit with my clients. There simply is nothing like being able to hold on to a book in your hands, knowing you will be able to pass down that book for generations to come. It warms my heart to see the excitement on my client's faces when they open their book for the first time! Traditional print products and print sizes are always available, as well as an array of other products.
