About Me

webMelissa McDaniel, owner and photographer of Mella Photography

I’m Melissa. I know, surprise! My name isn’t “Mella”. I came up with the name by just combining some of the letters from my first name and my daughter’s middle name.

I’m 27 years old. I have an amazing 5 year old little girl named Hessa. We call Alpharetta, GA home.

I’m a coffee junkie. Vintage quilt hoarder. I can carry on an entire conversion using only emoticons. Prop addict. I have an inappropriately loud laugh, and laugh at inappropriate times.

Photography has really been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I honestly can’t remember not having a camera. I decided to pursue it professionally after having my daughter.

I absolutely love what I do! Photographing newborns, babies, children and families is my passion.

I’m currently shooting with a 5d mark iii + 100mm lens + 50mm lens + 135mm lens + 70-200 lens
