Meet Melissa.

Melissa Alexander began as a documentary and street photographer/filmmaker, enjoying the process of making candid, beautiful moments last forever. As she grew in her craft, studio portraiture began to interest her more, finding delight in the experience of photographing her clientele in an intimate setting.

She resides in Atlanta’s West End community with her daughter. Currently, she is working on projects related to black identity, police brutality, and ancestral memory.
