About Me
Hello. My name is Melanie.
And I’m a huge nerd.


The day that I developed and printed my first roll of my film, I held up that drippy paper, took a deep breath, and fell absolutely head over heels in love.


Circles, squares, triangles, photos, textures, overlays and fonts. I creatively use these elements together to create visual emotions. It’s pretty awesome.

Hopeless Romantic

Every photograph tells a story, every design has a heartbeat. I instinctively incorporate love and emotion into every single thing that I create.


I’m just all around, artsy-fartsy.

When I’m not working with clients, I enjoy gardening, star gazing, painting, cooking, and fossil hunting. Life is all about making your mark on this world so I’m not afraid to take chances, be bold in my efforts, or get my hands dirty.

Feeling Chatty?

Send me and email and I’ll get right back to you.

Let’s brainstorm about your design idea and make it come to fruition. Maybe we could talk about branding your business, customizing your wedding invites or that photshoot you’ve been thinking of. Hell, we can just talk about the weather if you’d like. Did you use one of my stock images for your design and want to share it with me? Great! Either way, I’d love to hear from you.
