And I can help.

I am a pro photographer and Gateless writing teacher who helps clients creatively express their soulful and genuine selves.
I help clients feel seen first within themselves, then in their writing and images. My website is melisinestudio.com.
My intention is for you to develop skills to feel confident showing who you are and making memorable images.
We will go beyond typical writing and photography classes, utilizing my extensive experience with coaching, healing, art therapy, mindset, and personal growth work.
We create a safe space for you to be fully seen and heard in your deepest truths.
This is the fast track to create writing and photos that are inspired, energized, and powerful.

What is Gateless Writing?
The Gateless Writing method creates a certain magic, a profound growth in your confidence and creative energy. The process works for writers and non-writers alike and provides incredible transformation in a short amount of time.
A Gateless Salon is a writing experience that starts with soulful, guided meditation or question to activate your creativity and intuition.
We write together for different periods of time ranging from 5 to 25 minutes. You have the option to read aloud, then receive and give positive feedback.
Receiving encouraging, loving feedback builds your confidence as a writer and communicator. You will see the power and energy of your work. We silence the part of the brain associated with criticism, and focus on strengths. This is a critique free zone, and a supportive, safe community.
Giving feedback with a positive lens helps you realize what you love about other people’s work, and what ideas, techniques, and craft can inspire your writing and communications.
Praise for Visual Storytelling Academy
In 10 minutes, Melisine and I created 200 pictures of me that I liked.
That is more than all the photos that I like of me in my whole life combined.
Ivonne Senn - Coach & Author
Top brands trust Melisine to present their image to the world. I have trusted her to help me tell stories in new ways—through my writing and photography.
Melisine encouraged me to dig deeper into the meaning and perceptions I make of photos and has helped me see a new, alternative narrative to the stories I tell myself. This has helped me connect more meaningfully.

I LOVED this course!! We had so much fun.
I recommend this class to anyone who is afraid to show up online, or who wants to love it or who wants to take photos but "doesn't know how" or who wants to find a creative release, have a blast and remember the power of what art really is.
