Welcome!  I'm so happy you stopped by!

I'm Melissa Bissell, an in-home documentary & lifestyle photographer, serving the communities that make up beautiful Berkshire County in Massachusetts.

Together, my husband and I are raising our 3 children and a crazy, lazy labradoodle right here in Pittsfield, the heart of the Berkshires.

Our children have taken us on many adventures throughout the Northeast and beyond as we accompany them on dance auditions, college tours and sports tournaments.  Of course I always have my camera in hand to document our travels and special times together.

As much as I love to travel I'm always happy to return home to the Berkshires. Here I enjoy long walks during all seasons, beautiful fall foliage drives, and an occasional night out at one of our great cultural destinations or restaurants.  But my heart is at home, where we spend our time doing our ordinary, everyday routine which makes up much of our life.  It is here where my storytelling through photography really comes alive.  

I am passionate about creating authentic stories of families lives through photography.  With two of my children already in college I am all too aware that time passes quickly and preserving our memories is necessary and sacred, not just for us but also for our children.  

I take seriously the privilege of being welcomed into your home as your family documentarian.  Together we will capture the memories of what makes you, your family and the life you have created together, its very own kind of special.
