About Melissa Hay Photography
Hi I’m Melissa, owner of Melissa Hay Photography!
Photography is my passion, and has been for many years. I love to blend my solid, technical skills and experience with new ideas to build creatively imagined photos. I specialize in relaxed family portraits, designed to capture those special moments forever.
Whether you have hyper toddlers, moody teens or reluctant adults: my laid back style puts everyone at ease, allowing me to compose a shot you’ll treasure.
Creating beautiful images starts with picking the perfect backdrop, whether that’s at home, or an outdoor environment. From there, the elements are layered like paint on canvas. Great shots require good light, a strong composition and just the right amount of editing to bring out the best in the subject. I think about all this for each and every session, allowing my clients to relax and enjoy the shoot.
Based in Austin, Texas, I cover families, senior high school portraits, headshots, architectural, local events, special occasions, and commercial. Have a look at the portfolio pages to see the style and quality of my work. Over on the reviews page, you can read what others say about me. Finally, there’s a form to inquire or book a session. Drop me a line today and we can talk about how to craft the perfect shot for you.
