Hi, I’m Melissa Joy!
Welcome to Melissa Joy Studio!! I am so excited that you’ve stopped by to check out some of my photos. I love capturing moments in time that pass in a blink of an eye! And I love getting to know people!! I feel extremely blessed to be able to incorporate both of those things in my business and I hope I we get the chance to meet!
After 17 years in the photography business I have been able to share in the most important days and moments of so many peoples lives. I grew up a photographers daughter. I worked along side my dad and mom as they taught me the skills I’d need to succeed in photography and graphics, as well as the more important lessons of how to treat your clients with respect and care. I feel grateful to have built so many lasting friendships through something that I love to do!
I am currently a mother of two amazing little girls and married to a wonderfully supportive husband who took this plunge with me almost 10 years ago now! As I watch my own girls grow, I am even more convinced that time is short and all I am going to have to remember their sweet little hands, smiles, and expressions is through photography. And as my memories fade of my own wedding day, I get to look back and remember all of those special moments that I otherwise would’ve forgotten. Photography has been a gift in my own life as I know it will be in yours also. I hope you’ve enjoyed your stay here and I can’t wait to meet you!
