Melissa Waller Photography – Fredericksburg VA Senior Photographer » High School Seniors & Families

Wasn’t it just Christmas? I honestly think the older I get, the faster time flies and that is just not cool folks! I need time to slow down some – I have a daughter getting married, one with only 1 year of High School left and I am on my 10th 33rd birthday this August. Something needs to give soon.:)

I deeply apologize for not blogging more – lets just put it out there, I suck at it. Okay…Good! Now that you understand that, I should probably hire someone to blog for me, because I am just so horrible at it. I admire some of my photography friends who blog 4-5 times a week – I love reading their blogs, but with a full-time job, photography, editing, scheduling, bills, family time – I seem to always neglect this little corner of my world.

I am here today to give you a little update on things around here. I have been shooting A LOT! Since Christmas when I got the studio lighting, there has been a whirlwind of activity at my house. I am loving every minute of it.

I will be trying to catch up on posting, but here are a few of the clients I have had recently.

Nakia – 2015 Chancellor Senior

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing this beautiful girl last weekend – she is incredibly beautiful, brave and has a heart of gold. Meet Carley!

I finally wrapped up the last of my 2015 Senior Reps with this beautiful girl. Meet Allison – A Courtland 2015 Graduate!

Another absolutely beautiful Senior from Riverbend High School. Meet Miss Mallori! Morgan did her hair/makeup and she looks amazing!

Last, but certainly not least – my amazingly beautiful cousin got married to the man of her dreams last month. I couldn’t be happier to have had the honor of capturing her beautiful day. Enjoy a few of my favorites.


We are gearing up for our first 2016 Spoksmodel Shoot Out. I am super excited. I have an amazing group of girls this year and I can’t wait for them to start recruiting and showing off kick-butt images from their very first shoot. Stay tuned – two more weeks!

I am putting the final touches on my very first catalog to hand out to new clients. I am super excited about this – it was a lot of pain/sweat/tears but with the help of my very good friend Sara we knocked it out the park ya’ll!

Our final group shoot with my 2015 seniors is right around the corner and it’s going to be bittersweet! I am so insanely proud of all of them and I can’t wait to see what college has in store for them.

God Bless and I will try to get better at blogging.

Much love xoxoxo

I was so excited to shoot these photos. I love shooting with Erin; she is such a classic beauty and this is the second time I have had the pleasure of working with her. Her versatility is amazing and I seriously could have shot her all day long. We had the pleasure of working with La Cle Jewelry, by Deanna Saracino and her collection of key necklaces. I love Deanna’s vision because her necklaces are built on a platform of building confidence and self-esteem. This is exactly the foundation that I built my photography on – making girls feel beautiful and building confidence.

Please enjoy some of my favorites from my session with Erin and these super cool necklaces. You can find La Cle Jewelry here: http://laclejewelry.com/

When I started my photography journey, I photographed many genres but recently decided to focus my attention on High School Seniors. I have been talking for some time about adding a tween program to my list of adventures and I am working on that. I hope to launch that in Spring 2015. I will be looking for young girls ages 12 – 15 to photograph and add to my portolio. Seeing young girls thrive, have confidence and self-esteem is very important to me. Every girl needs to feel beautiful and my dream is to make them feel that way. Look for more information this winter. God Bless.

Thank you Meagan for working with me to capture these photos – they make me happy and you look beautiful! xoxo

Thank you so much to Style Redefine [formerly known as High In Style] for the interview feature. I can’t believe I forgot to post this. It has been a very busy and crazy summer and I am looking forward to a little down time soon. Fall is my very favorite time of the year, because I love apple picking, pumpkin spice latte’s, Halloween and Thanksgiving.:)

Please enjoy my interview here with Style Redefine and much love folks.

Meet Emily! A few weeks ago, I was on Instagram and I saw Emily’s feed with this amazingly gorgeous dress and I thought – OMG! I have to reach out to her and see if she would be interested in doing a shoot with her prom dress. When Emily wrote back and said “HECK YA”, I was so excited! To top things off, Emily has a beautiful horse and I suggested that we use him in some of her photos, and I am so glad we did. Emily lives on a beautiful piece of property and we were able to use the fields beside her house for these gorgeous images. Emily, you rocked your session and I am super excited to show them off.
