Melissa's Productions, Tea Cup Photography
Melissa took our family photos and she did fantastic! She is fun and talented. It only took 3 weeks and we had all of the pictures. Not only does she take posed photos, but she snuck in a few when we weren't looking. My girls are 7 and 5 and she was great with them. We are definitely going to be recommending her.Oct 28, 2013Verified

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?All of the images and copy rights (shared with me) are included in the photo package.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I do constant research. Pinterest has been a great source for images. I have also purchased the newest version of Photoshop and push myself to try new techniques.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Back in 8th grade, I had a teacher who told each of my classmates and I to write down our top three things we wanted to be when we grew up. We wrote them down, sealed them in an envelope, and I gave it to my mom. Much to my surprise, four years later preparing for my high school graduation, my mom pulled out the envelope. I was floored when I opened it to see that the number one thing was a Photographer. I had just gotten my acceptance letter a few months before, for the photography program in Willmar, MN. Looking back, there wasn't any defining moment that said, "this is who I want to be", but it has always been something I have enjoyed doing. On family vacations, I would always snatch the camera, not letting anyone else touch it! I think there is something pretty amazing about being able to capture moments in time.
