Hi, I’m Melanie. Thanks for stopping by ♥
I’m a photographer, graphic designer, day dreamer, old soul and hopeless romantic, born and raised in Pasadena, Maryland. My mother is a photographer and an artist. My father is a musician, artist and a writer. I consider myself blessed to be a weird mix of the both of them.
My professional background includes creative direction, event design and visual merchandising, highlighted by 15+ years in custom art framing, both film/digital photography and graphic design. I’m terrible at math.
I love rainy days, smile lines, crooked teeth, messy hair, blurry action shots, freckles, sun flares, film grain, cheese and my dog.
I’m inspired by sound, nature, color, texture, emotions and most of all, love.
I can’t function without music.
Some of my favorite pastimes are hunting for fossilized shark teeth, watching shows about how the universe works, napping with my pup, astronomy, gardening, taste testing inexpensive wine and making up ridiculous, interpretative dance moves.
In life, there’s movement in every moment and beauty in absolutely everything. All you have to do is open your eyes, clear your mind then take the time to embrace it.
You Work For Them
