2014 marks the 13th year of photographing for artist and former model Melissa Hutchinson. Recently shooting actress Selma Blair and her baby Saint was a highlight in her career. Over a decade of beautiful, evocative images of babies, children, and women, along with the unparalleled ability to capture raw emotion between people have kept her schedule full from the start. Starting out handpainting vintage photos of children, she learned the art of photography and bypassed a career in television. Her style is "wholly motivated by a moment, much of which can never be planned. It's like no other feeling in the world seeing this through the lens...i literally lose my breath, i can't breathe. That's when I know I'm part of something much bigger."
Melissa's latest project was photographing her daughter at the Paris Opera House, Palais Garnier, in France, and her other daughter at West Minster Abbey in London. She returns to France to shoot in the French Riviera and Monaco in June.
