melissa x lynne


Melissa thompson

With over two decades of experience, Melissa's career in photography began when Raven was born. She had the desire to pick up a canon film camera her grandmother had found at a bus station in 1966. Becoming a mother made her yearn to create images she cherished. She wanted to capture every moment, feeling, and milestone. That yearning and passion to create never left and extended into a career in photography. It is her ultimate desire to capture your story through images that have a deeper meaning.  

Ultimate Organizer

Raven Beasley

During her time at Auburn University, Raven honed in her exquisite hair and makeup skills for all of the lights, camera, and action while performing as a majorette for the Auburn University Tiger Eyes. This gave her invaluable experience in learning how makeup truly transfers on camera. On any given day you can find Raven scouring the aisles of Sephora or creating outfits and obsessing over luxury fabrics for your shoots. Her creative eye, attention to detail, and her superb editing skills (as you can see throughout the portfolio) is the chef's kiss to your final images.

''I had a really great time during my maternity photoshoot with Melissa and Raven! I wasn't sure what to expect, and I was a little nervous because all of the women in their portfolio seem so beautiful. They made me feel and look beautiful too!  They are truly so talented and know how to make you shine.''

''They exceeded my expectations on every level. They made me feel so beautiful and captured timeless photos. I am always nervous about letting others do my hair and make-up but Raven could not have done a better job, she is AMAZING at what she does. I am so glad I went with them and am beyond grateful for the experience and the photos.''

''This entire pregnancy has been tough. I have felt really tired and have gained more weight than I’m use to. To say the least I have NOT felt super beautiful throughout. Melissa x Lynne gave me an experience of a lifetime!! They did my hair and makeup, hand picked outfits that would make me look beautiful and literally posed and catered to me the entire time. This was the most beautiful I have felt this entire pregnancy. I would recommend it to anyone.'
