Melissa is my name and Photography is my game!

My tools of the trade are Nikon D90 and D5000 with nikkor 18-135 lens, Tamron 75-300 lens, 105mm nikkor macro lens, Crystal Vision Limited Edition High Definition 58mm 0.5x Pro Wide Lens W/ Macro, and an antique Gemini telephoto lens with bunch of various filters. I also make my own ‘hacked’ lens from older lens that I find while thrifting.

Photography has been a huge passion of mine ever since I recieved my first camera when I was a little kid. Many cameras and thousands of pictures later, here I am, ready to make my mark in this world. I have experiences of working at a wedding photography studio in Miami, FL before my children were born.

Most of my pictures are untouched and straight out of the camera with no post-production done whatsoever, unless stated in the description as cropping, color adjustments and such. I also create digital and fractal artworks. I’m a bit hooked on the macro world.

I’m also a mother to 2 precious children under the age of 6, so my time of playing online and shooting photography is somewhat limited at this time, but I am available for commissioned works. Please email me for details and rates.

I am working on my own website at this time but I can be found on facebook, just add MoxieNox at the end of FB’s url.

I invite you to browse through my gallery and thank you for taking the time to view my pictures.

Comments are always welcomed and appreciated. And many thanks to those who have left comments.

Custom made calendar on request: just BM me with images for each month and I’ll make the calendar up for you. Also custom made greetings cards on request: BM me with quotes, texts, or verses on specific images and I’ll set it up for you.
