• MV the Artist

    Melissa Vandermause has been photographing professionally since 2005, her style is innovative and real. Her signature style includes artful videos and hand painted backgrounds produced and painted by none other than Melissa herself. You must take a moment to delve deeper into her work and you will see the writing on the wall, the soul in the portrait, the love in the lens.

Sisters of Beauty

I’ve been blessed to be able to photograph this wonderful family of little women many times, and this time there is a brand new baby, little miss Myah. What a troupe of cuties!!!! The canvas is one that I painted for Amy Trahant of Take Aim Photography, and she allowed me to steal it for my CT tour last spring, thanks Amy!!!

Lovable Family, ocean inspired art

I’ve been honored to photograph this loving family several times! They are so sweet and I always appreciate Gisela’s artistic sense and genuine spirit! I am sad we no longer live in the area with them, but will remember the fun we had and the friendships made. Thank you Gisela for gracing me with your family’s presence and helping rock out another fantastic session! A little tidbit, the work of art was designed and painted for Amy Trahant of Take Aim Photography, I was commissioned to paint the canvas for her, and was ecstatic when she allowed me to borrow it for my week of shoots this spring! Thanks again AMY!!!
