Melissa Batista Photography Captures All the Right Angles

By Jake Levin

Melissa Batista has always been a dreamer and a visionary.

Perhaps no line of work is better suited for those attributes than that of a photographer, which Batista has excelled at with her very own studio, Melissa Batista Photography.

Batista acknowledged that today's technology allows for easier access to point and shoot cameras than ever before but remained steadfast that there is no substitute for a professional camera.

"Having a professional photographer allows you to capture the candid and staged portraits perfectly," Batista said. "Choosing the right photographer is essential. Having a good eye for angles and understanding lighting is not something every "photographer" can offer. I believe I possess those and many other qualities and skills."

Batista is a natural light photographer, offering maternity, family and children sessions, as well as photography for event services, such as weddings, birthday parties, bridal showers and more.

Weddings and maternity shoots would have to be her favorites, she said, in part due to the genuine nature behind them.

"My work is inspired by the lifestyle I enjoy: natural, beautiful, free and light," Batista said. "Therefore, I strive to shoot bright and airy, organic feeling photographs at every session."

No matter the setting, Batista's attention to detail remains on the mark.

"I have a great appreciation for detail and love holding on to beautiful memories," she said. "I believe I gain that through my work. I love working with my clients and seeing the true beauty and the emotion of the moment."

Batista's website,, is full of features which shine even more light on her work. She maintains a blog full of descriptions of her various shoots, has a grand portfolio of her work, as well as a link to her Instagram account, which can be followed @melissabatistaphotography.
