and then i realized


 are the best way to


Hi, there! Thank you SO much for stopping in! Here are the basics....I'm 38 years old, am happily married to my best friend, Wes, and together we have two amazing daughters who make our lives crazy and wonderful! (Bree and Kenzie!)

One word to describe myself......I guess it would have to be eclectic. My interests and passions span a rather broad (and random) spectrum. I love Jesus, my family, reading (a mix of YA and adult, as I used to be a high school librarian!), Diet Coke, basketball, baseball, Harry Potter, Disney World, Gilmore Girls, photography (duh) decorating, and shopping.  My husband is a baseball coach, and our girls play a lot of sports, with school and travel teams, so we are definitely a sports family!

Because of our fun and crazy schedule, I can't shoot every single weekend or evening, so those coveted evening and weekend spots that I do offer tend to fill up super-early!  As far as seniors go, fall is the very first season to book up, with summer a close second-- so even if it seems crazy early, you might want to consider booking your SR pictures by the spring of your JR year, at least.  Most of my senior models book before Christmas of their JR year, to hold their spot in our super-populst SR model program!

My name is Melissa McCrotty and I am a SENIOR portrait photographer located in Russellville, Arkansas. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my website. I would love to hear from you!

I'm Melissa
