The best part of being a portrait photographer is preserving special moments in people’s lives.

Melanie Abney, born and raised in the foothills of the Appalachians, first came to love photography as a senior in high school. Many, many, years of learning, have gone into honing her craft. A photograph is so much more than just a piece of paper. Each photograph, is a representation of the photographer's vision, the photographer's heart, capturing the very essence of that which is framed in the camera. A photograph, that in, and of itself will become a work of art. 

If you are searching for a photographer who will walk with you from initial consultation of session planning, and session implementation, all the way to the placing of heirloom products and art in your hands, please feel free to email:, call 706-844-3818 or visit me on facebook:
