First and foremost, thank you for being here. It shows that you felt something looking at my photos and that to me, is the very essence why I love photography. The human emotions and connections we capture through imagery are those moments that inspire me in creating these forever keepsakes for your family.
My name is Merissa Santana and I'm a proud mother of one amazing little girl Harper; she is my pride, joy, and motivation. I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Shae who is another huge inspiration in my life, he has been pushing me to follow my dreams for years and I'm finally going after it. He has believed in me from the very beginning since our Photography class in High School together. Without him honestly I most likely would not have ever got this far, so to my amazing husband... thank you for believing in me!
Most days you'll find me spending time with my little family at home chasing each other around the house. We love Mexican food, family dance parties, being ridiculously silly (like pretending we're a bunch of dinosaurs), and exploring outdoors. I take photos because it's my passion and it genuinely makes my heart happy to capture others precious memories happening right before my eyes. I know how important it is to capture these beautiful moments that are flying by. You'll never get today back so don't put it off any longer and let's capture what is most important to you!
My style of photography is natural lighting and lifestyle imagery. I love standard posing images as well but I want to capture the true passion, love, silliness, and those real life moments between you and your loved ones. I want to capture the real you!
Take a look at my portfolio and I hope you enjoy what you see. I promise if you let me into your world I will do my very best to capture those moments you will cherish forever!
