about image
My name is Melissa and I created Studio M Boudoir Photography almost fifteen years ago to empower beauties of all shapes and sizes to love their bodies.  Read about that here in 

I make a point to be photographed myself at least once a year, so I remember all the amazing emotions and vulnerabilities that come with having a boudoir shoot.  My amazing boyfriend David has a background in photography as well and is always game to help out with this. He also plays the roles of cheerleader and handyman (meow).

We parent two amazing teenagers and a feisty rescue dog named Dash. 



"I opened my gallery for the first time and I CRIED! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I genuinely couldn't have asked for a better outcome! I have never seen myself in the way that I see myself in those pictures and I am truly, truly overwhelmed.  you and your team are AMAZING!" 


"I just wanted to thank you again for being a breath of fresh air! I was so nervous going in to meet you but you put me at ease right away. Thank you for breaking down those walls and getting me to feel really comfortable. I can definitely cross this adventure off my bucket list now!" 


"My husband loves his gift. When I told him that you made me feel beautiful, his response was "now you see what I see every day". I don't know what I ever did to deserve him."


 "Oh my goodness, Melissa! They are stunning! I've never felt so beautiful! I can not thank you enough! Thank you for such an amazing experience!"
