Love your story?
We'd love to capture it!
My love of photography was sparked over fifteen years ago while working for a small-town Texas newspaper. I wrote about real people and their lives, but the photographs really told the truth behind their unique stories.
Today, I have turned my passion for photography and storytelling into the business of documenting and preserving your truth with beautiful, heirloom products to enhance your home and your memories. Throughout the process, I focus less on the "studio" stuff and more on making a connection with you, like new friends having a cup of coffee.
Meet Melissa Tobias
Makeup AFICIONADO EXTRAORDINAIRE
Melissa is an expert when it comes to your makeup & skincare - especially stunning eye looks. This banker turned esthetician loves all things makeup and uses her creativity to enhance your natural features, helping you feel beautiful and confident.

When she isn't busy being the artist and business owner of Makeup by Mela, this new mom enjoys spending her days snuggling her 7-month old, hanging with friends, and Netflix-bingeing. Her favorite makeup trick? A technique called Tight-lining, which gives the illusion of bigger eyes.
