You know how people with beautiful souls just seem to make things warm and bright? That’s what it feels like to be around Melissa. I was SO honored when this friend asked me to take her portraits, and the closer our shoot date came the more excited I was to get her in front of my lens! Melissa is an extraordinary human being, pouring her heart out for hundreds of kids and the staff that guides them each day. Selfless doesn’t even really come close to sufficiently describing how she lives her life and I’m so grateful that I get to call her friend!
