In The Frame

  1. Anna Hurley says:

    These are all so beautiful!! I totally need to do more with my kids, but it sure is harder when they’re both in school. I will try harder this year, love all the images you got with your kids.

  2. Lauren says:

    Ok! What?! The black and white one of you in the car, the one at the beach of your shadow and your little guys feet, and the one of you and your reflection in the mirror are my favorite, but this entire gallery is mind-blowing!

  3. Caroline says:

    Oh ! The one from the car ! I remember ! I remember asking you how you managed that and I remember the smile on my face when I first saw it !
    Love love love how your family is such a huge part of your self portraits ! You will rock at your "I was there too" workshop !

    Oh so many I absolutely LOVE! The third from the bottom…. gahhh! Lady you slay me, in every sense of the word. Can’t wait to continue on this journey with you in 2019!! 😘😘

    The pictures are so amazing, Melissa. God has given you a great talent. I love how you talk about the importance of your kids knowing you were there too and the value of you being in the pictures as well. I’d like to be better at this myself!

  6. These are absolutely perfect! Having so many images with your boys is so inspiring. I truly hope to do the same this year. I especially love how well you captured your emotions from portrait to portrait. Completely stunning work, Melissa <3

    So good Melissa! I love the captures of you with your kids! I also especially love the one of you at the computer and driving in your car! 😍

    Melissa, Can I firstly say how much I enjoyed reading your words and the transformative effect that doing self-portraits it has for you – and for your children. As a mother, I find it so touching and lengths you have gone to get in the frame with your three boys. I have two and one I think a little bit younger than yours, and really do struggle getting in the frame with them!! I love the variety you have captured – each one so beautiful – including ones just by yourself. You are truly inspiring and I am going to get your workshop. Xx
