We loved working with Melinda. She is thoughtful and gentle and has great artistic vision that makes her photos unique. The photos she took of our baby girl in the first week of her life are some of the most treasured photos we have.” Maruska L

Melinda photographed my aging Lipizzan mare before she passed. The photos captured her heart and personality perfectly and I couldn’t ask for a better way to remember her. Melinda was a joy to work with and edited the photos beautifully.” Delaney K
