I am so excited to share with you my new Logo designed by Tiffany at On The Spot Studio. Tiffany was amazing to work with. We started in one direction with my Logo and ended up doing something totally different. While my indecisiveness would have driven anyone else crazy, Tiffany was amazingly patient and kept trying new things until we ended up with a Logo that I loved.

This year is turning out to be a great one! I am excited to launch my Senior Representative Program and am still looking for High School Seniors in the Northern Virginia area. If you know any 2010-2011 High School Seniors, have them contact me through facebook or at

Want to get your Senior Photo session almost for free?
Want to have some great images for your Facebook portfolio?
Want to earn free prints, CASH, a customized portrait cover book, and a wall poster?
Then our Senior Rep Program may be for you.

I am launching my Senior Representative program for 2010/2011 and am looking for up to two reps from each high school campus in Prince William County. Here is the deal if you are selected:

One free on-location portrait session – a $125 value.
10 electronic files for sharing on Facebook (with a Melissa Waller Photography watermark).
30 referral cards to share with your friends – each card will include your portrait, name, information about my studio plus a 10% discount to the person presenting your referral card.
For each referral that presents your card, you will receive a $25 print credit and $10 CASH (up to 5 referrals).
Five referrals or more will qualify you to receive a fully customizable soft cover album with up to 20 photos of your Senior Rep’s senior session.
For the tenth referral you will receive a 20x30 wall print from your Senior Rep’s senior session.
The classmate must present a referral card in order to be eligible. All referred classmates will receive a free 11x14 print from his or her session with a valid referral card. Your participation in the program will introduce you to a new style of cutting edge, personalized photography and is also a way to earn incentives toward your senior portrait session.

Terms and conditions:

All photo sessions must be completed by May of your junior year.
Parents or Legal Guardians must sign a model release, allowing us to use your images for advertising purposes.
A valid Senior Rep Referral Card must be presented by a referred student in order to receive any credits toward prints.

The program is first come first serve; so act fast if you are interested.
