About Me :)

Hello!  🙂  Welcome to my photography blog.  My name is Melissa, and I live in Okinawa, Japan with my husband, 2 dogs, and 1 tortoise.  I have a Bachelor’s of Arts in the History of Art & Architecture from the University of California, Santa Barbara.  I’m a mostly self-taught photographer, however, I am going back to school to get my certificate in Photography.  As much as I love photography, I love taking classes just as much!  Can you imagine my face full of excitement this semester?!

I love photography because it results in permanence.  It captures those moments that only happen ONCE ever because any other time is a different day, time, moment, etc.

2012 is as year of new beginnings.  I’ve semi-launched my photography business.  There’s a lot to the business end of it all, and art in itself is always evolving along with the artist.  So keep checking back to see how it’s all evolved 🙂
