Hello! I'm Melissa, and I'm thrilled to welcome you to my corner of the internet. In this "About Me" blog post, I want to give you a little peek into my world as a passionate photographer and graphic designer.
A Journey Through the Lens: My Photography Story
My love affair with photography began a remarkable 22 years ago, coinciding with the arrival of my first sone. As any parent knows, those early years are filled with countless precious moments, and I was determined to capture each one. Armed with my trusty camera, I embarked on a journey to freeze time and create lasting memories.
Over the years, my photography skills evolved, just like my children did. From those first blurry baby photos to the stunning portraits I now specialize in, I've cherished every step of the way. Photography has been more than just a hobby; it's been a way for me to document the beauty and wonder of parenthood.
A New Creative Chapter: My Graphic Design Graduation
In 2020, I proudly receive my degree in graphic design. This marked a significant milestone in my creative journey. Graphic design opened up a whole new realm of possibilities for me, allowing me to combine my love for visual storytelling with innovative design concepts.
Since then, I've had the privilege of working on various projects, from branding for local businesses to crafting eye-catching advertisements. Graphic design has become another outlet for my creativity, and I'm excited to see where it takes me in the future.
Home Sweet Home: Regina, My Beloved City
I've had the pleasure of calling Regina home for the past 19 years. This vibrant city has been the backdrop to countless photographic adventures and the source of inspiration for my graphic design work. Its charming streets, stunning landscapes, and warm-hearted people continue to fuel my creative spirit.
My Greatest Creations: Two Boys and a Mini Doodle
While photography and graphic design are a significant part of my life, my most treasured creations are my two amazing boys. They've been my muses, my subjects, and my source of endless joy. Watching them grow into the remarkable individuals they are today has been my greatest privilege.
And of course, I can't forget to mention our adorable mini doodle, the latest addition to our family. This little bundle of fur brings laughter and love into our lives every day, and I can't resist capturing her antics through the lens.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little better. I'm excited to share my photography, graphic design projects, and insights with you in future blog posts. Feel free to explore my portfolio, leave comments, or reach out to chat about all things creative. Here's to a journey filled with art, memories, and endless inspiration!
