Hi! I’m Melissa- Welcome to Melissa Jarvis Photography!

Here are some things that you should know about me.

-I’ve studied under the best and brightest and most talented portrait photographers in the country. I bring a lot of knowledge and talent to my portrait photography and I strive to learn and grow in this profession every. single. day.  You will walk away with beautiful imagery for your home and memories to last a lifetime. 

-I am without a doubt, the BIGGEST lover of Golden Retrievers that you’ll ever meet. We own two fluffy, puffy, hairy goldens and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I own about 12 lint brushes (no, really!) and they’re stashed just about everywhere: car, kitchen, diaper bag, office. . . AND my camera bag. I probably will have few elusive golden retriever hairs on me the first time that we meet which have miraculously escaped the lint brush.

-I am married to my wonderful and supportive husband, Mike. We were actually high school sweethearts that continued to date during and after college. We have one adorable and spunky little boy named Owen. When I am not editing, answering your emails, or at a session, I am spending time with these two fellas that have my heart. It feels like just yesterday that Owen was a newborn. It feels like I have blinked and he is now a bouncing, walking, talking 18 month old little boy.

I’m really looking forward to meeting you. Please email me if you haven’t already to start planning your session!
