Coaching to Turn You Into the Photographer You Were Meant to Be

Not only do I offer a one of a kind experience for my senior sessions, I offer mentoring for photographers of all kinds. Over the years of learning and growing my business, I continue to invest in myself to grow my brand and business. 

I am passoniate about Senior Photography, but did you know I have done other genres as well? My experience includes: Family Sessions, Weddings, Birth, Newborns, Maternity, Boudoir, Teens, Youth Action Sports, Pets, & Headshots.

I had a bunch of questions when I first started out. As I learned more about taking photos, the more I learned about the business side of it all. Let me tell you now, there is so much more that goes into running a business than taking pretty photos. I can help you along side your journey, just as others have helped me. I can guide you through things that didn’t work for me and tips and tricks that have helped me succeed. What works best for you ? 

What works best for you ?

I am not an expert of all things and I may not know all details about every brand of camera, but I am positive we will work together and find an answer. 

Can’t meet up? Let’s chat on the phone. What can I help you with? 

Do you want to meet up at a coffee shop or park? We can work with your camera or use your laptop. Bring on your questions and we will find a solution together. 

Let’s shoot together! I will shadow you during your session which gives you the piece of mind with your camera settings and posing. Also, you can have my images for youe session! 

“A ship is always safe at the shore – but that is NOT what it is built for.” – Albert Einstein



“Be like me. Take the leap. Make the decision. Buy a camera. Pay for mentoring. Take photos. 

My business was not built overnight. I continue to pay for courses to help me learn DAILY.

Keep moving forward.”  – Melissa Young

What People are Saying ?

“Working with Melissa put me at ease throughtout my entire session. I knew what I was doing, but having her as an assist to help with reposistioning clients wordrobe, fan positions, posing ideas, and moving props around since I shouldn’t be moving heavy objects being pregnant. I already booked another session with Melissa and can’t wait to work on branding images and marketing my business with her.” – Charly @ Charly Joanne Photography Pittsburgh Maternity Photographer
