Raised here in Tampa, Florida, I am married to a wonderful supportive husband and a mother to three beautiful boys who keep me very active. What I LOVE about photography is the feeling I get when I’m done with a session, the anticipation to get home and upload the images. I get so excited with the finished product because I know these are beautiful memories that I am creating for someone and to think “I took that picture” is so rewarding to me.


I’m a natural light photographer and at times I will play with different lightning techniques to obtain knowledge and education in my craft.

I am great with children of all ages and love to interact with them during sessions.

I carefully take my time editing each image to make sure I am delivering nothing but quality to my clients.

I am mostly self-taught and my desire is to continue to learn and to NEVER give up. I look forward to meeting you and capturing your memories that will last a lifetime.


God Bless,
Melissa Cancel
