My name is Melonie Brister. I am from Grand Lake, LA. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful children.
Emotion and character are a couple of the things that one photograph can capture. I enjoy being a part of that moment.
I love the fact that i get to be part of someone's family history. I also love that i get to bring out the best in people. I help them face fears of being in front of a camera and actually enjoy themselves.
I love to capture the pure laughter of children, or the raw tears from a father's eye when he kisses his daughter one last time before giving her away. A portrait is not a moment in time but should be a timless moment.
Some people say that "a picture is worth a thousand words", I say it should leave you speechless.
