Melissa will travel to the client’s chosen location, or clients are welcome to come to Melissa’s studio near Atlanta. The first session involves a review of Melissa's portfolio giving an opportunity to the client to show which portraits they are most drawn to in terms of style, color and pose. The subject's personality, likes, and dislikes are then discussed as well as clothing and setting for the portrait. Reference photographs are then taken with a digital camera. Melissa then imports the images to her laptop computer. She and the client then view the images to find the best ones to be used for the portrait. Melissa returns to her studio to create composite images with favorite expressions, poses, light, and colors on the computer. She will email several different compositions for the client's final approval. She will photograph the portrait in its final stage and send the images to the client via email. Upon approval, Melissa finishes the painting and ships or delivers it to the client.
