My name is Melissa and I created Stolen Innocence Photography, a horror and dark-themed photography company in March of 2016.
I wasn't going to do it. Changes I made in my life left me feeling lost and confused. I didn't really know who I was; I just knew what tied me to something I wanted to get away from and I wanted to get rid of everything that kept me connected. It took time to sort out the pieces and figure out what I really wanted and what really made me happy.
This makes me happy.
I still giggle when I take a shot and know we've nailed it. I still get ridiculously excited about sick ideas my friends and models not only agree to, but help me perfect. I still get inspired by everything I see, and I still get flashes in my head of scenes I need to put somewhere - anywhere.
Finally, and most importantly, I realized that no matter how I started and who helped me grow into who I am and what I like now, I'm still me. And this is all mine.
That makes me happy too.
Thank you for visiting. I hope you'll come back again soon.
