Welcome! I am Melody, the face behind Daydreams. I am the mom of 4. For most of their lives I was a stay at home mom and loved every minute of it! About 6 years ago I decided it was time to make some changes and I went back to college. Not having any idea what I wanted to do and with a push from my amazing husband I wound up in a photography class and that is where it all began. I never knew how much I could love my job! I feel so lucky to be able to do something I love everyday and not have to compromise on my most important job as a mom.
I am like everyone else who enters this business I look back at where I began and giggle at some of those images of my own children that surely will embarrass them later. But, that is what is so great about photography. It is always evolving, there is always something new to learn and something more creative for me to try. I love that I get to capture those fleeting moments, a laugh, a kiss or even a tear. If I had to choose a favorite subject to photograph it would have to be births. I LOVE the fact that I can be a part of a new life entering this world and being able to capture those moments like when a mother holds her baby for the first time.
Although studio is always an option I prefer to shoot on location. There is nothing like the gorgeous surroundings of Nebraska and natural light. The number one question from clients is "what do you do just drive around all the time and search for places?" The answer is yes! I love grabbing up the family and going on a scavenger hunt for new, fun, beautiful locations.
Rule number 1 in my business is that I try to make every session fun, creative and unique!
Rule number 1 in my personal life chocolate, 80's movies and a good playlist make everything better!
Now that you know a little about me let's book a session that is all about you!
