"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.

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!
I have been involved in the beauty industry for nearly a decade. Having started my career working with a prestigious makeup brand and gaining invaluable skills, I constantly sought out more opportunities and began working with local photographers and became published as a makeup artist. Besides specializing in bridal and boudoir makeup, I am also a licensed esthetician in Colorado. My love for my artistry and passion for the business are evident as I truly strive to bring out the natural beauty in each person I have the pleasure of working with.
