Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

POSITIVE BODY IMAGE & CONFIDENCE

with award winning photographer:
MELONIE MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY

Hi, my name is Melonie and I have been photographing teens and tweens from across the nation for over 20 years. My goal is to not only create stunning, magazine style, fashion images, for both guys and gals, but to also instill a positive body image mindset in each and everyone of these young adults. 

 

I don't do basic (or everyday)!
I push creative to new levels with each and every one of my high school teen content creators. No two snowflakes are the same, and no two photo sessions are the same!

Believe it or not, everyone struggles with how they look.  The "skinny" person wishes they had curves... and the one with curly hair wishes they had straight.  You, my dear, are not the only one who struggles with how they feel about the way they look.  I promise you, there is beauty, strength and pure AMAZINGNESS in you - JUST AS YOU ARE!

"To be honest, I was very nervous before the whole session. I didn’t want to have too much makeup on, I was nervous that the outfits would actually look bad on me, and I was worried that I wouldn’t look good in any of the photos. It’s weird, I know, but I have struggled with being comfortable in my own body for years. I wouldn’t wear specific types of clothing because I wasn’t comfortable. 

 

But, after Ivette revealed how I looked with the makeup, I was shocked. I couldn’t believe that that was me staring back in the mirror. 

 

After the photo shoot with Melonie and seeing the photos for myself, I actually cried. I couldn’t believe that that was me in the pictures! That I actually looked like that. 

 

Even now, after looking at the finished products, I still cry! I feel a lot more confident in myself and with my body, because even though I might’ve had a bit of makeup on, that’s still me! That’s my face and my body! That’s all me! 

 

Thank you so much for helping me feel more confident in myself and with my body!"
