My name is Melissa, and I am the artist behind Melissa O Photography. I like to think I am a vivacious, fun photographer. I try to create a fun and relaxing atmosphere during your session (wine may be included *wink*). So here is a little more about me. I have several different college degrees; I guess you can say I love learning about different things and industries. I have a Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Sports Business, and a Bachelor in Workforce Education and Development with a minor in Human Relations.
I am a member of the Professional Photographers Association (PPA), and an award-winning, published, military events photographer. Some of my work is being used throughout a variety of military partner organizations. I am currently located in Sigonella, Sicily, Italy. I have two beautiful children and a supportive husband who has served our beautiful country for the past seventeen years as a naval officer. I love CrossFit but promise not to talk about it, only if you ask... LOL. I also have a special LOVE for music... I swear I was a singer in my past life. I seriously know the words to every 80's classic there is.
I enjoy photographing just about anything; However, I specialize in military events, weddings and have recently found a new love for newborns. I just love squishy babies!
Photography allows me to showcase my artistic abilities and creativeness.To me, the most important quality of a photograph is to evoke an emotional response from my clients. I strive to create a story, so that when people see my images, they feel as if they were there with me, during that moment in time.Thanks for taking the time to view my page and I look forward to meeting and working with you!
I wanted to say a special thank you to all of the second shooters that have worked with me; Tiffany Maxfield, Eileen Hanley, Suzanne Corneliussen, Kesha Monroe, and Jessica Lynn.
*I pray father that my creative, loving soul would be a blessing to all who I come into contact with...*

Melissa is a FANTASTIC photographer! She came to my home for before shots, followed me to the airport to get 'in the moment' shots when my Sailor came home from deployment, then followed me BACK to the house to get pictures of the kids with him, and our family reunited! Thank you Melissa for giving me something that I can cherish forever, & not just in my mind!Sent on 05/29/2012
