I met Melissa about a year ago & have done three photo shoots with her. She is very professional & accommodating. She comes to the photo sessions with ideas. I would recommend her to anyone... Karen Prince



I recently had a photo shoot with "Beauty Through My Lens" by Melissa Diaz Cancel with my brother and two nephews. She found an amazing location for us to shoot which was great because I was visiting from New Jersey. Melissa was there early test shooting and preparing for the shoot which was great as well and shows such great work ethic. She was very professional and precise, and added a lot of ideas to the shoot as well as letting us come up with some ideas of our own. I would refer her to anyone I know who is thinking about having a photo shoot. She was a pleasure to work with and I would definitely be using her services again.... Jason Gonzalez



I have and will continue to refer people to Melissa for a photo shoot, she is not only a friend but a professional. She always goes to scope out the scenery and lightning before a shoot. The pictures of my girls came out spectacular. Blessings to "beauty thru my lens photography"...Yolanda Ortiz



Everyone knows that children are unpredictable, even more so when it is time to be photographed. I have experienced photographers give up in a middle of a session, rush through a session and/or display some sort of frustration toward a not so happy fussy child. This year I have been using Melissa as our photographer and she is truly a breath of fresh air. She has photographed both of my girls separately and together as well as our family. She is so sweet and so very patient. She takes her time and doesn't cause any amount of stress and or anxiety when things aren't going as planned. She has a very nurturing way about her that makes the children feel so comfortable to the point that at the end of the session my soon to be (very shy) 5 year old just wants to spend the rest of the day with her. She has so much love and passion for what she does. She is very creative and will enhance the vision you have for your photo into such a beautiful picture that will last you a lifetime. Her work is purely quality and excellence and very affordable for families. She has captured the true essence of my childrens' personalities and has given me such beautiful pictures. She has great talent and the love, pursuit and passion reflects of it from the time you book your appointment all the way through the time she delivers her work to you. I highly recommend her! Her work is truly beauty through her lens! ... Ariana Romero



Our family photo shoot with Melissa went very well! We were beyond pleased with the overall shoot and with the pictures. Her creative touches and professionalism set her apart. We look forward to our next session! ... Monica Melton



I have done 3 photo shoots with Melissa. Each time was different and exciting. It is such a cool experience to see her take a picture and see the end product. What seems like a simple picture becomes this amazing piece of art in the end. I have been totally blown out the water by Melissa's talent. She is extremely professional and open to new ideas. She always comes with a game plan and its nice to see someone take the time to study her subjects before the actual photo shoot. Melissa is also a beautiful person inside and outside. She will capture all of our families special occasions. ...Evelyn Benjamin
