Rave Reviews

Melissa not only possesses a sharp eye, she understands how to use principles of design as tools to create a compelling visual experience.
— Lauren Templeton, Amelia Art Studio
Melissa is freaking amazing! Getting a session with her was so much more than snapping a few pictures. It was an entire experience. From amazing hair and makeup, to her natural ease and rapport with her clients, I felt pampered and comfortable and had a lot of fun! Her passion and unique vision and creativity is captured in each photograph. These were not stiff, posed photos, but rather glimpses into our lives. She captured emotion and vulnerability while still making us look amazing, and I will treasure her photographs forever. She is an artist!

Melissa is amazing to work with. She is thoughtful about every detail: hair and makeup, refreshments, music. Such a great experience in her studio, it felt more like a model session that a typical “shoot.”

M.Bee did an amazing job of capturing beautiful, high-quality shots and she did something even more magical- she captured the spirit and personality of [our business.]
— Theresa Duncan, Villa Villekula
It was such a pleasure to work with M.Bee Studio. Melissa is such a pro. This is a great INVESTMENT in your career. Headshots are the first thing people see attached to your work on LinkedIn, etc. I know these will stand the test of time.

[D]uring my consultation, [Melissa] made me feel at ease and that she had a good idea of what I was looking for. [W]e had fun the day of searching through the clothes and picking outfits she [and her makeup artist] made me feel at ease with a lot of laughter and conversation. [I]t was one of the best experiences, I definitely recommend Melissa to my friends.
