Hello and welcome! I'm Melissa, resident photographer and flower crown maker. MAO Photography was born three years ago out of my love for portraiture, nature, fairytales, and adventure! Shortly after graduating college with my BFA in Photography, I decided that my mission in life was to document everyday stories of love, beauty, and courage. To create and share real life fairytales.
A little about me... I'm a South Florida native and currently reside in Margate with my handsome boyfriend in our tiny but cute apartment. I love to travel and am always ready for the next adventure! I'm also a homebody though who loves yoga pants, HGTV, and home cooked meals. I’ve got an old soul, clumsy feet, and can usually be found at my computer editing and listening to Fleetwood Mac.
