“love of beauty is taste. the creation of beauty is art. “

-ralph waldo emerson

Hi, I’m Mel + I am so incredibly happy you are here!

This is a space for all things creative. Photography has been a long standing passion of mine. I love capturing moments, forever frozen in time to bring joy + happiness whenever a heart desires it. 

My work is a mixture of inspirations. The way humans love one another is among my favorite things. I love capturing the soft touch of one love to another. I love hands interwoven + arms locked. I love the candid, unplanned, in between moments of daily life. When you partner with me to capture your memories, this is what I am after. I want to capture all the things we so often forget to notice. I want to freeze time for you + the ones you love, if only for a moment, to let you soak in all the beauty that surrounds you. 

I specialize in natural light photography. This means, I avoid using a flash. If I am shooting in your home we will rearrange until we can find the best placement near windows + light. I love the imperfections of home life + including them in my sessions. If we are shooting outside, my preferred session times are early morning or late evening when the light is the most glorious + least harsh. I love to travel so if you’re up for an adventure + want to road trip or hike to our session destination, count me in! 

Pricing is based on ten years of experience along with my unique lifestyle technique. If you’re interested in working with me, please email willowandburl@gmail.com for pricing + availability.
