Arizona Photographer 2014 Mel’s 12 photo challenge


Entering 2014 with excitement and a new challenge!

I am so excited to kick off 2014 and a new photo challenge! I have so many great ideas, and cannot wait to put them into play. This year I will begin something new, that I like to call Mel’s 12. On the first of each month, I will announce that month’s theme here on my blog. This month, Jan. 2014 the theme is going to be  “reflection.” I thought this theme was fitting, as we are entering into a new year, and it’s always great to reflect on the past as we approach a new beginning. You may take this theme, and interrupt it as you see fit, and I invite you to photograph with me. Please send one of your best images to in the subject line make sure to write, Mel’s 12 refection.  At the end of each month, I will select my favorite images, and feature you on my blog page along with my image!  Please make sure to watermark your image, or send me your personal information so that I can credit you for your work!

2014 is going to be a great year for us to all grow and learn together! So come one, come all, whether you are new to photography, or seasoned, and let’s grow together!

Hi there, I am Melissa. We moved to Arizona when I was five years old, so I consider myself a desert native. I am the mother of three wonderful children, a wife to an amazingly loving and extremely intelligent man, and a lover of animals. (We live on a small farm) I am the proud pet owner of a Chocolate Lab, miniature wiener dog, 26 chickens, 2 goats, a horse, and a miniature horse named Switch. Photography has always been a passion of mine, and 13 years ago I was able to form a successful small business doing what I love. I feel so blessed that God gave me this gift that I can pass along to others and bless them with.
