Hello! I’m Melisa and I am passionate about capturing those precious candid moments that occur only once. I believe photography should be about genuine moments and tell a complete story. My goal is to create images that when you look at years from now, they can relive special beautiful memories..

Hello! I’m Melisa and I am passionate about capturing those precious candid moments that occur only once. Photography came to me when I needed it most, and I didn’t know I could fall in love with it the way I did. My work is authentic and creative. I love what I do and I enjoy capturing that unique bond between humans that love each other.

I currently live in Northern Virginia, but I was born and raised in Argentina (that means I have a pretty strong accent!). My happiness comes from the love of my two sweet, energetic sons. Spending quality time with my family and preserving its values and traditions are my priority in life.

Some of my favorite things are chocolates, music, craft supplies (the more the merrier)  and dancing!

"Melisa was a great photographer! She captured candid moments perfectly from our farm wedding. She helped with backgrounds and composition. Melisa was also so patient with our wedding, while a storm rolled through she stayed flexible and offered to stay to capture the reception. Thank you. She got the pictures to us quickly and in digital format which is great to get to friends and family. I highly recommend Melisa as your event photographer. Colorful and vibrant photos and great attention to detail."

Amazing! She captured the exact moment that showed how my 3 boys naturally interact with each other and each boy's personality in their individual shots, which is why I love my pictures so much! 

"AMAZING! I cannot thank you enough for the pictures Melisa! You were extremely professional despite the extreme weather conditions outdoors and the difficult lighting inside of the museum. Thank you so very for giving us such a beautiful photographs!"

"Patient and very skilled! Did a great job with my newborn and 5 year old!"
