About

I’m a wife to an amazing man, a mother to the sweetest little girl, Emma, with our second child arriving in March 2017! I began pursuing photography in 2011 and took a break for a little while, while working full time as a bank teller. The camera was put away until our baby girl arrived and I wanted to capture every single moment of her growing up. This made me realize that I wanted to do that for others because time goes so fast. Once my daughter was 6 months old, my husband and I decided it would be best for me to be a stay at home mom. Melissa Tanner Photography officially “rebooted” in June of 2015 and I’m very thankful for where it has lead me so far! I’m a Christian and so thankful for all God does for me daily and the love that He pours out to me and my family. I’m a people person, I’m not a coffee drinker (despite my husbands uncountable attempts), I love watching movies, I enjoy reading, but I never seem to have the time to sit down with a good book. I’m not tech savvy in the least, despite my attempts to learn and keep up! I didn’t attend college or any photography classes (though I’m hoping to some day pursue this).  But my passion for photography is continuing to grow daily & I’m so excited for each session I get the opportunity to photograph!

All in all, I couldn’t be more thankful for the life I have & each day I’m given to live it!
