Hi, I'm Melissa. 

I’m a photographer and makeup & hair artist. 7 years ago I left behind my corporate job to pursue life of an artist creating beauty. 

I love serving the world by helping women look as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside. I work with women who want to be seen as the best versions of themselves, whether it’s for expressing their feminine selves, or for important events in their lives like their wedding day. If you love natural, effortless looking beauty and photos with a boho chic vibe, then I'm your girl. 




I love live music, watching good tv, and experiencing new adventures with my husband. My husband and I have known each other since the 5th grade, and reconnected 8 years ago on Facebook.

My soul craves traveling to new places,  snuggling with my little dogs, and reading good novels. And drinking good wine. I'm also addicted to good tv- Game of Thrones, Scandal, Homeland and The Affair are current faves.

I'm currently living in San Jose, CA, but willing to travel for cool places and cool people.
