I have had the pleasure of photographing the Alcala family for a few years now (since little Gabe was just a baby!) Robert and I have been friends since high school and it is always wonderful to catch up with him and his family. His oldest boy, Nicholas, is a charmer. Halfway through the session as we walked around the Fresno State campus, he slipped his little hand in mine and my heart melted a bit. I have so much love for the four of them.
I used a variety of cameras including my (new to me)Mamiya 645S, Minolta Maxxum 7000 and my Sony Alpha DSLR. For film choices I finished off an expired roll of Focal Film that was already in the Minolta and then switched over to Fuji Superia 800 and Ektar in the Mamiya.
Hi, I'm Melissa. I am a wife, mother, step-mother, Gigi (step-grandma) and a photographer. I started out as the family member always asked to bring my camera along and it has turned into my life dream. I just love being able to capture moments for others that they can always cherish.This is my little corner to share my sessions, projects, and a little piece of our daily life. Thanks for stopping by!
