MELISSA SCHOLLAERT

the photographer

"Words cannot begin to describe how much I loved my branding session with Melissa. During the entire shoot, she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed - which is saying a lot for someone who is not used to being photographed! Before the session, she took the time to ask me meaningful and intentional questions about my brand and what I was looking to portray through these images. The final product is everything I wanted and more! The photos are absolutely beautiful and I couldn't be happier with how Melissa captured my brand and me as an artist. "
