Hey there! 


My name is Melissa and like so many other photographers out there, my passion for photography kicked off after the birth of my son.


My husband bought me this big DSLR camera and I was clueless. When my son turned 3 months, we had a photographer take his pictures, and they were absolutely breathtaking. I was hooked. I looked at them atleast 100 times and was determined to be able to capture such beauty myself. I needed to know how to work this camera, and needed to know now!! After a couple years, countless workshops, hundreds of books, thousands of hours, some trial and a LOT of error-~ along came Sweet Mae Photography (named after my daughter Nora Mae).



My favorite quote~

"I love photos because the best thing about it is that it never changes, even when the person does."
