"the office" obsessed • cat lover • fitness enthusiast

My name is Megan McGivern and I work hair and makeup for Melissa. I am a wife and mother of two beautiful children, ages 2 and 5. I was born and raised in San Diego, California, which is where I attended Paul Mitchell the School to acquire my cosmetology licensing.My goal as a makeup artist/stylist is not to make you look like a completely different person, but enhance the beauty that you already possess.  Boudoir photography is such an uplifting and empowering thing to do for yourself, and I think every woman should experience it at least once. I look forward to the opportunity of working with each and every one of you, and making you feel like the absolute best version of you.

animal lover • photo taker • PSL addict

My name is Melissa Minkner and I have been photographing women for 10 years in Colorado. I have always been drawn to the beauty of bare skin and started my boudoir journey when I was 18. After suffering from my own personal struggles, I booked a boudoir shoot for myself. I battled so much with the all too familiar, "I am not enough". I was at the very lowest in my life and my images had given me strength to stay true to myself, and to be proud of it.
I am passionate about giving that type of peace to every person who comes to me. You are enough, I am enough, and we, are ENOUGH!

"Melissa is so fun through the whole process, and creative. She took a VERY general idea of what I wanted and turned into reality. I did this shoot for me and for fun, and I can't wait to see the rest!"
