Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.


Melissa writes “There is beauty in what you ARE at your core; it has nothing to do with what you look like on the outside. It’s about your soul, your personality… what you create and what you contribute to the world. It’s about being true to yourself and following your heart, no matter what others might think.” I agree with Melissa 110%- she explains beauty so accurately.


When Melissa isn’t getting tattoos or running her business near Colorado Springs (check it out here: Melissa LuLaRoe), she’s caring for her six (yes, you read that right- 6!) dogs.  She’s very active in rescuing dogs, especially Boston Terriers, and volunteers with local rescue organizations. Her life is very much her own, and I personally admire and strive for that.  She writes “I have managed to let go of worry that I will disappoint others with my choices. I am proud of myself that I have finally found the strength to say, “This is my life, and I’m going to live every day in a way that brings me joy.” It took me a long time to get here.” What a stage of life to celebrate!!


Melissa stepped out of her comfort zone and went for it in the above photos.  Will you join her?  White sheet session add ons are amazing and fun!
