In the Spotlight - Melissa Albert
Over they years I've shared a lot of images from photographers I know as well as complete strangers who have shared something beautiful, usually on Facebook.
Well, meet Melissa Albert, a children's photographer from Maine, who I first met two years ago at ShutterFest. Most of you don't know Melissa. She's not on the circuit lecturing and doesn't always make it to every convention or conference, but I'll match her passion for the craft against anybody.
Melissa is a perpetual student, constantly working on her skill set and always in search of capturing the ultimate image. She's regularly going through the same process we all do - building confidence, establishing her style and fine-tuning her business and marketing goals.
This week she launched her blog series and kicked it off sending me the image above in an IM asking, "What do you think?"
There's nothing more I need to write - quality and passion speak for themselves!
"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still."

We visited Melissa J Albert Photography for the first time 2 years ago to take some pageant photos for our daughter Miranda. It was our daughters first pageant at the age of 6. She won overall photogenic with a portrait that Melissa took. Just 3 months later our daughter went onto win a photogenic award at the State pageant 'also with a different portrait that Melissa took'. Six months after visiting Melissa for the first time I submitted a third portrait to a magazine that earned my daughter her first Cover. I could go on and on, it's now been 2 years since our first visit with Melissa of Melissa J Albert Photography. I have said since visit 1 that Miranda and Melissa are magic together! There is just something about Melissa that Miranda can relate to, have fun with, listen to and actually get the perfect shots. Melissa is a true artist always working to not only better her craft but to focus on creating a true experience, lifetime memory and heirloom for her clients with the craftsmanship and products she provides. I would recommend visiting Maine and Melissa J Albert for an experience of a lifetime.

Melissa came into our lives by accident. She was the extreme cheer photographer for my daughters competition cheering team. Layer in we had our first tween session! Melissa is unbelievable and is so naturally talented! She takes pride in her work and in making a difference in the lives she comes into! My daughter won the peoples choice photogenic award the first time she entered. Melissa is able to create a bond with the child to capture that perfect photo. We thank her and are blessed to have met her.
