Hello beautiful people who love photography! I am Melissa Baines. I am stoked to start this page. I get so many questions about my images and the locations I took them. This page is going to be the place where I share more details about my adventures and how I captured all my images.
A little about me, I promise it will be short, real, and interesting, I am a 30 something mom of two small boys. I have two giant mutt dogs, a rv, and a husband who all travel with me. I am your typical High School dropout, who did end up going back and getting her diploma. Then took 10 years to sober up and figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. I received my degree in graphic design shortly after I had my second, and last, child. During that time, I became obsessed with photography, partly because I wanted to be able to take good pictures of my kids and partly because I lived in one of the most interesting and beautiful places on earth; Kodiak, AK! Oh and that husband I mentioned, he is in the Coast Guard so we move around a lot. We now live in Mobile, AL and take as many trips to the north Alabama hills, caves, and waterfalls as possible. Was that short? I guess it is all relative anyway.
My intentions for this page are to share with you my adventures in photography from past to present. I get a lot of inquiries about my past work, so I will be mixing the old with new, but it is all AWESOME! No matter the post I promise you will learn something and get some great ideas to make the most of your images.
