I had a Mother who loved taking pictures

       (that's me with my head cut off).   

She became quite a traveling photographer and inspired me in capturing life through the lens of a camera! 

I was raised in Kokomo Indiana and learned to play the organ.  After High school I moved to Florida to live with my Dad.  Went to college in Utah and wound up in Maryland where I met my future husband!?   But before that I fulfilled my dream of serving a mission amidst the culture, language and people of Italia which will forever remain a part of my soul .                        

Don and I married in 1983 and I was blessed to bear and Mother three children while teaching piano in the home for 20 yrs.  Years of photographing family, children and events near the Chesapeake Bay fostered the development of my photography skills and style.  I continued with photography classes, portraits, senior pictures, and church and community events.  I was asked to photograph weddings thereafter and have never turned back.  2013 was the year I created my photography website under the domain of melodygracephotography.com and opened its' corresponding Facebook page.       

I flourish in the atmosphere of events and weddings!

I melt and adore capturing the first family moments after the birth of a newborn or adoption.  Whether in the hospital or home.

Life Sessions are your choice!   

A homecoming,  fishing trip, lazy day at home, new pet, gardening, retirement, new home or family reunion.
