A little about me...

I'm Melissa Carter, the soul behind the (NIKON) camera & owner of MCCreations Photography & Films.
I am so thankful every day I get to live my dream as a Lifestyle Photographer & Filmmaker, creating in my favorite places in the Gallatin Valley & surrounding areas (All of Montana really!). As well as meeting amazing individuals! It's an uplifting feeling to capture genuine moments; whether it's sister's giggling, families snuggling, couples whispering in each other's ear, or saying "I do" ; I want to be there and capture those sweet moments with you. I love people and I believe everyone has a story to tell. 
When I am not hanging with you or your families, I am with my own amazingly goofy family hiking, camping or backpacking in our backyard Mountains of Montana, soaking up what Movies we can watch with popcorn, complete with puppy's eyes staring ever so sweetly... Can Anyone else relate?
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. There's magic and fun memories there!
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 top Customer Service & 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!
