MEET MYLISSA

Hey ya’ll! 

I remember my first camera…it was a Kodak Ektralite 10. I use to save my allowance to get my filmed developed. The excitement of momma taking me to the Kodak booth to ship it off and then pick it back up! There was nothing quite like it! I would bounce around just SO excited to see my pictures!

That birthday present from my parents started my love for photography. And I can’t thank them enough for nurturing that side of me!

Even as a kid, I was drawn to capturing “moments”. And I am still drawn to capturing real life moments…a momma playing with her baby, a hidden moment between a bride and groom…real life happening!

These are the images, that when you look back at them, will make you smile! 

And if I can make you have that kind of reaction to your memories, I’ve done my job well!

bride and groom

I was born and raised in Texas, but after marrying my husband Rick, I moved out to the beautiful beaches of Florida.

I was born and raised in Texas, and after marrying my husband Rick, I moved out to the beautiful beaches of Panama City Beach. Since then, I’ve traveled all over the country documenting love stories for couples and families. 

When I’m not working, you can find me outside in my flower beds, curled up with a good book, making my soaps and lip balms, playing with my dog or at the beach…

And the perfect day has ALL of that in it…along with coffee…it MUST have coffee!!
