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.

Jenson is One! | Cake Smash | Portraits

Hard to believe just over a year ago was where my journey with this family began… It’s been fun watching this family grow! Baby J turned one year, and to commemorate this milestone, he ate cake… (Of course!)

A few favorite frames from our session:

Sammy and Jaxon braved this chilly afternoon in Bellevue for some fun at the park! Here’s a few favorites from the day.

4 December 2012

It’s just past midnight here in the Pacific Northwest… Time to post 4 December. This shot is actually from a trip I went on in late Oct/early Nov in Los Angeles, California. We hiked to the top of this hill near the Silver Lake neighborhood. At the top is this fantastic conservatory (Griffith Conservatory). It was a beautiful day for a hike, and I’m so glad I decided to bring my camera.
