"It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder
I'm Melissa Gysen of novel photographie... a wife, mother, and photographer currently residing wherever the Army will send us -- and that happens to be Fort Drum, NY for the time being. I didn't always have a camera in my hand, but I can't imagine my life without it now. I believe our stories are being written in the day to day -- moments that seem mundane, but that I'll look back on and wish I had again. Photography is a wonderful way to tell that story.... a visual story; our family story. I treasure those photos that help me recall the sweet, simple things that make up our life -- the real things. As a photographer, I feel so blessed to be able to create those same keepsakes for others.
I really love what I do and have worked hard to create a body of work that is simple and timeless. I'm so glad that you found me. I would love for you to take a look around my site and get to know me. Thanks so much for stopping by!
