You will experience:

Photography Training with a focus on Self Portraits, Creative Photography Techniques, and Visual Storytelling
Group teaching with Q&A.  

My goal is to get you feeling capable and confident in taking meaningful photos.

I distill years of photography experience into easy-to-use photography techniques, and methods to coach yourself on mindset, thoughts, and emotions around photos and visibility.

We will also draw upon my extensive experience crafting creative self portraits, to help you understand creative and meaningful ways to explore photographing yourself and creating images to illuminate your experiences. (I do creative self portraits professionally for my brand clients worldwide.)

This class is designed to help you clarify your unique vision and what images you want to create. You will learn technical skills you can use to take any kind of photos, including portraits, headshots, and product images.

Please note that this class will not tell you to mimic a particular style or poses. This class is designed to empower your vision, to help you find what style and poses feel right to you.

Courtney Rolls Therapist

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.

Catherine Hormats Psychotherapist

This is a wonderful class! I had trouble connecting images of me to the creative and invigorating work I do. Melisine showed me how to bridge that gap!

Melisine does a terrific job of creating supportive community and of helping us SEE ourselves and our work.

Amy Lynch Keynote Speaker & Author

Before, I looked at my creativity with a critical eye and lens. I felt blocked and stressed.

Here the lens is positivity and compassion, seeing value in everything I create: “What do I like? What am I enjoying? What is strong?” 

With this process, as long as its authentic and aligned,  I feel good sharing with the world. 

Now it is easy to keep creating!  My creative floodgates are open!

Aarti Gurnani Awatramani Health Coach

Melisine is one of those rare finds, a photographer of extraordinary talent who infuses each image with a quality of light that allows for unprecedented beauty. Because she has worked for such high end brands, she knows how to both stage and position the coveted shots you have always wanted that can move your ideas and your brand to the next level.

She focuses on a different beauty than you are used to, finding your inner power and ethereal light in an extraordinary process of listening and reflection. She brings out the beauty and light in every single situation! And every person!

I LOVED this course!! 

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.

Suzanne Kingsbury - founder of Gateless Writing, Inc.

Express your vibrant, powerful self!

You can be your own best photographer.


Consider the lifetime value of activating your inner creative power.

Consider the value of learning how to plan and take your own photos so your voice and images can be unified, amplified, and aligned.

Learn to think like a pro photographer, and build your confidence quickly.

You are paying for speed, so you don't have to spend time "figuring it out" -- you can just start being creative!

This is much less than the price of ONE photoshoot or coaching session with Melisine, and the skills and benefits you will gain will last far longer than one session.
