A little about me...

 I'm Melissa Carter, the soul behind the camera & owner of MCCreations Photography & Films.
I am so thankful every day I get to live my dream as a Lifestyle Photographer & Filmmaker, creating & capturing moments in my favorite places in the Gallatin Valley & surrounding areas; All of Montana really. As well as meeting truly amazing people. I look forward to connecting with nature through authenticity and compassion in my daily life and through my work. Connection is key to creating meaningful and timeless imagery every time. It's my pleasure and honor to serve you in this way. 
When I am not hanging with you or your families, I am with my own amazingly goofy family hiking, camping, backpacking in our backyard Mountains of Montana, traveling, or soaking up the wonders of the world and all the fun, growing moments in between.  
Most of all, my family and I enjoy going on adventures together as much as we can. Our second home is the beautiful, and enchanting, Oregon Coast. We try and vacation there every other Summer, especially
Cape Lookout! It has been a family favorite for over 10 years. Both magical and memorable. 
I LOVE capturing life, telling stories through images as I am living it. I want to share my passion with others and provide quality images & moving pictures to last for generations to come. There are so many amazing artists out there, and it can be quite daunting to choose the right one. I take pride in working hard for my clients, listening, and cherishing your families as if they were my own. With me, you will receive an authentic experience, collaborative care, with no hidden fees, no surprises, everything is discussed and planned out ahead of time, so you know exactly what you are getting within your budget and desired locations. 
Transparency, Honesty, Integrity, Fairness, & Equality are all important to me, and so are YOU.  I look forward to meeting your fabulous self! You can call me, message me, email me. Let's get started on your session!
