Melissa J Thompson Photography bio picture

    Growing up, as I recall, I never had too much to say. An observant child; I have always had a great sense for depth of field, and a different perspective than those around me. I was very shy and quiet. Lanky and awkward. I have fond memories of painting four-foot murals in my mother’s sewing room, and riding my horse on the abundant horseback riding trails in the rural area where I grew up. “Melissa’s a Social Butterfly”. I will never forget when a friend described me as such. A self-described planner, an eternal realist, I give people what they want — decisive moments captured within an optical lens. Timeless archives cherished for generations to come. I look forward to working with you and capturing your decisive moments!! *Bio photo by: Kristen Honeycutt Photo Co.

14 December 2012

Seeking solace on this somber day in December. We will probably never understand why that boy in CT. took all those innocent lives. “Children need our presence, not our presents.” This quote gives me chills as I type. We need to look deeper, are we losing personal connections? How could this boy be so very disturbed, troubled, and lost to give this horrific act a fleeting thought. We need to build our children up; listen, really listen and respond to them attentively. Be strong parents, even on the days we don’t think we have it in us. Love, embrace, cherish, respect.
