Melissa contacted me last year to talk about a gift she gives to herself, every 5 years, for her birthday. The gift of a photo shoot, the gift of dressing up, getting a custom outfit and taking bomb, confidence boosting photos. I was more than happy to oblige. We blasted Beyonce and posed in front of some of the amazing Black Lives Matter murals in downtown Tucson. Melissa is a lover of traveling, cooking, reading, working out and time with her family. She told me that she’s looking forward to a trip to Bali in the next year (fingers crossed!)
I totally think birthday portraits need to be more of a thing! Enjoy these of Melissa!
