About Me

“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.”

— Jonathan Swift


Photography is my passion and bliss. I'm happiest with a camera in my hand. I love photographing people of all ages and capturing the beauty of flowers, birds and rural landscapes.

I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. I'm married to my best friend, Daron. After living in Michigan for a few years, Daron's job brought us to North Carolina where we have lived for the last 9 years. We love dogs and riding our Harley-Davidson through the rural countryside. We have a beautiful married daughter and three super-cute grandsons that are the joy of our lives.

I was the legal guardian of my elderly father with Alzheimer's. He recently passed away. While learning about this terrible disease that has been prevalent in our family, I wrote an Amazon best-sellling book called Alzheimer's Prevention - Protect Your Brain for Life - What Our Parents Didn't Know.  I hope the information found in my book will help others understand how to lower their risk of  developing dementia.

Back to more fun subjects.  Here are a few of my favorite things:

favorite color - yellow

​favorite food - Mexican

favorite bird - cardinal

favorite book - Christy by Catherine Marshall

favorite song - Amazing Grace, My Chains are Gone by Chris Tomlin

favorite movie - toss up between Star Trek and Sound of Music

​​favorite TV show - toss up between Downton Abbey, Reign and Breaking Bad!

favorite chill times - reading, writing, walking, floating in pool, playing with grandkids, riding the motorcycle and of course, walking on the beach as often as possible!

"I loved working with Melody Jemison. She is professional yet relaxed. I had a great experience and would encourage anyone looking for a photographer to contact her."

I would love to get to know you too! Contact me now for a free consultation to see if we may be a good fit for your photography needs.


My photographic style is contemporary. 

My family portrait designs are intimate and elegant with a dash of fun tossed in. 

My little girls fairy portraits are unique and beautiful - a treasure to grace your walls for many years to come.

Your new branding portraits and business headshots will have your friends and co-workers asking, "Who is your photographer!!? " 

Always learning and perfecting my techniques, I'm equally comfortable in my home studio, at a business event or an outdoor location.

My post-process methods will ensure your portraits are beautiful and professional looking.
