Behind the Camera

I’ve been fascinated with art, really, since I can remember. As a young girl, I had sketch books & art materials to fill my room…but I found out at an early age that I just can’t draw. I could see the images in my head…but what I saw never matched up with what came out on paper. How frustrating!! But at the age of 10, I received my first camera (that was my very own) and the rest was history! I could finally capture what I saw in my head! I was the girl that had (and still have) boxes of photographs from every trip, function, event & non-event of my life!

I love to photograph almost anything – places, architecture, landscapes, animals.  But people are my passion.  I enjoy meeting and photographing people in all stages of life…learning about them, and then making sure I capture them and their moments.

As a photographer, my style is not to overly pose and ask for a resounding “cheese!” In fact, quite the opposite. I want to capture you in this moment in time.  If you are most comfortable in your dress clothes on the steps of a church…fine! But if you are most comfortable playing with your family in your backyard or at the park…even better! I’m flexible and my style is relaxed.

Mark Brandenburg - I found some art sketches the were going to be thrown away and they are signed by Melissa Bridges and dated in the early 80’s. I found them in Mountain Brook, Alabama. Could these be yours?February 6, 2013 – 3:49 pm
