williamsville, ny portrait photographer


There is an old English proverb that states, ‘the eyes are the window to the soul’ and this has always been a favorite quote of mine. As a photographer, I am always looking at people’s eyes and if you really take the time to look, you can tell so much about a person from their eyes. I am thrilled to once again spend 2014 with an amazing group of women and fellow photographers as we challenge ourselves to try a new portrait theme each month. As noted in this blog post’s title, our theme for February is soulful portraits. I am so thankful for this project because it inspires me to take photos of my children that might otherwise pass me by. I will definitely cherish these soulful images of them.

To continue to be inspired by soulful portraits, you can continue through our circle by visiting the very talented, Cassandra O’Leary.

    Melissa, your boys are so handsome! I love the progression you can see in their age- I feel like even though these are serious, you can see that bit of young boy mischief sneaking in, especially in the youngest! Great job!
