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.
