Melissa Donaldson Photography

About this pro

Arizona is where I have grown up. I moved here when I was five, and I consider myself a native. After living here for 30 years, I am still not used to the heat, but love the Arizona sunsets, and adore the desert and mountains. I am the mother of 3 brilliant children whom I adore, and I am married to an incredible man, who encourages me to follow my dreams each and everyday. I am blessed with an abundance of love, and love is all that matters. Photography is my passion, and it burns deep within my heart and soul. You know that excited butterfly feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you fall in love? That is how I feel about the relationship I have with my camera (and also my family). When I am not behind my lens photographing people or fine art and landscape, I am day dreaming about what I am going to photograph next. I literally lay in bed at night dreaming about what adventure awaits me, how I am going to take a photo of it, and exactly how I plan on editing that photo. I am a learner, and each day I learn something new about my passion, and it makes me yearn to photograph more and become better at what I do. I am also a student. I currently attend Academy of the Art University in pursuit of my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography. My goal, as your photographer, is to not just take a photo, but to truly capture the emotion behind it, and give you a lifetime of memories. I am specializing in family, newborns, maternity, weddings, senior portraits, commercials, as well as fine arts and landscapes. Melissa Donaldson Photography proudly supports our military service personnel and their families through OpLove.
