Well, hello there!
I am Melissa. Somehow you have connected with my work and I am so glad you are here!
My passion in photography is meeting new people and capturing special moments! Whether it's you and your family, a growing belly, a fresh new baby, capturing milestones of your little ones, new chapters of love in couples or kids becoming adults and graduating high school, I am in love with making a photo that connects with the viewer.
I am a story teller. I love to capture real moments that unfold. Taking a unscripted approach allows me to document those moments of love, emotion, and connection. These moments in our life are fleeting and you will see me around our community with a camera in hand, documenting my own family moments.
I am a lover of light. I love the sun and will follow it to make my heart happy. Most of my sessions occur outdoors during that delicious golden hour when the sun is just right.
I am a wife and a mother. I have been married to my awesome and supportive husband for almost 10 years and we have three beautiful children together, 6, 4, and 14 months. I am a mother to the core. I quit my full time job in August to pursue life at home with those I love the most. I am a wife and mother first, so that is why I limit the amount of session I do per month.
I love my family. A perfect day is hanging out with my beautiful people all snuggled up on the couch to watch cartoons on a Friday night.
I love coffee, ice cream, and pizza. There really is no other way to put it.
I am a Christ centered photographer. 10% of all my session fees go to Impact Ministries International (IMI), an organization that rescues orphans all over the world. They help feed, house, and educate abandoned children. If you would like to sponsor a child or would like more information about IMI, please visit their website at www.tstamman.com
So happy you are stopping by to say hello and check out this page! I couldn't be more blessed with all the love and support from everyone around me! You really do make my dreams come true!
Allow me to tell your story. Let's make beautiful photos together!
