About Me

Hey There! Im Melissa Thurber and love working as a photographer. It is my passion and I want to do it for the rest of my life!! I started taking pictures of my kids with a regular point and shoot and everyone use to tell me how awesome those pictures used to come out (with no editing). So I decided to borrow my mother-in-law's Pro Grade camera and take some headshots of my daughter because she wanted to get into acting and modeling!! I had such a blast shooting with her and the images came out awesom!!

I ended up buying myself a great DSLR, took a bunch of classes, took every opportunity I could to go shoot with other photogs, trouble shooted (when I couldnt figure something out on my own) with other photogs that have been in the business for a long time, and learned photoshop!! Now I own a photography business Melissa J Thurber Photography!!

I have done a lot of work with models recently and enjoy EVERY minute of it!! I think every photograper has their thing and I have come to the conclusion that working with models is My thing!! It allows me to get creative and tell stories through my work that I can not do through family portraits and weddings!!

I am doing very little TF right now but if you have have that look that will fit perfect into a theme I want to work on then I will highly consider it!! If you would like to book a session with me please send me a message and we will see what we can come up with!! And I will let you know what my price is per shoot when replying!!

I love working with people and want to shoot with models as much as possible!!

I want to work with models who want to feel comfortable with a woman photographer!!

I love all styles and am willing to work with who ever as long as you are willing to work too!!

Please check out my website for more contact info and would love to book a shoot with you!!
