Melissa J Thompson Photography bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    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.
