Primarily a natural light photographer, Melissa can be frequently found chasing down the sunlight to grab a few of those beautiful sun rays.

Kailee's love for photography started when she took her first film class as a junior in high school, and has continued to grow ever since. She is dedicated to providing you with an experience that you will always remember... one in which you feel comfortable, at your best, and confident that you will end up with a FANTASTIC end product that you can’t help but stare at over and over again. Her aim, she says, "is not to capture how things look, but rather, how they feel."
