What Should I Wear?
Solid Colors in neutral tones work best for portraits.  Our goal is to focus on the expression and features rather than the clothes, so try to stay away from patterns.  That being said, I do enjoy a pop of color!  This could be a necklace or accessory.  For example, think of it as an accent color in a room in your home.  One wall of a pop of color looks really nice, but it may be overwhelming if all 4 walls were painted that same pop of color.   Classic clothes will remain in style for years and are a great option.  Seniors:  See the Senior Style Guide.

How Will I See My Portraits?
Approximately two weeks after your session, you will be viewing and choosing your portraits at the studio.  You will first watch a a beautiful story telling slideshow presentation of your images.  We will then help you choose the best  decisions based on your needs.  Because we will be choosing your images, we like to make sure that all the decision makers will be present at the time of the viewing.   In addition, we do have an online gallery available for clients that live greater than one hour from Melissa Kelly Imagery.

Don't just take our word for it.  Read what our clients are staying about Melissa Kelly Imagery...
We had a wonderful Christmas experience at the studio and my son enjoyed every minute of the session. Melissa and her staff are very kind and accommodating and the quality and experience shows in every detail.
-Shawn Jett
We presented Melissa with quite a challenge... to photograph an extended family of 18 on a hot August day outside! She was so considerate of the location with respect everything needed for successful pictures. She and her assistant manipulated all of the lighting, changed out props, fiddled with our hair during the breezy moments--and we just had to be present, have fun and smile! She was delightful to work with, and had a great eye for positioning our large crew. The final product was amazing.
-Blessed Girl
Melissa Kelly is a fantastic photographer. She has the ability to bring out the inner voice of her subjects. My daughter is very shy and Melissa was able to get great photos of her for her new business. I absolutely will be using her again for future shoots and for future senior pictures. Thank you so much for your patience and for making this a positive experience for Jessica. She really did have fun and really enjoyed being around you!!!
-V. Hartman
Two of my teenagers have had Melissa take their Senior pics. Absolutely professional and does a wonderful job of reading their individual personalities to maximize the experience. Only wish we had discovered her before my oldest had her Senior pics taken.
-Michelle Campbell
Melissa is so talented and does phenomenal work. I knew she did a great job before we got pictures from her but have been even more impressed since personally working with her and receiving our pictures.
-Crystal Block
Melissa has an exceptional eye for interesting and beautiful photography. Her energy and fun vibe gives her an innate ability to make the photo shoot fun. She transformed the dread of my son's senior pictures and turned it into a great time with amazing photos.
-Donna Ray
Melissa did an amazing job photographing my daughter Sophie! Getting a two year old to hold still or smile is very challenging, but we could not be more pleased with the results. She had fun dressing up and the results speak for themselves.
-Justin Kufahl
I love the pictures Melissa took of my daughter! She is so fun to shoot with and really knows what she is doing. Booking to take more that’s how much we love her work.
-MJ Valdes
I love Melissa's professional, fun and friendly attitude. Her images are amazing show that she is passionate about what she does. She is a joy to work with and helps make taking photos be a stress free and fun experience.
