Today we’d like to introduce you to Melinda Roth.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I’m a Mama of two girls and an Ex full time actress. After I had my second daughter the acting world lost its shine for me and I started to get burnt out on all the superficialness…oh, and the driving all over creation.
I had always loved taking pictures as a hobby and was always complimented on my photo’s, sooooo I took a leap! I figured if I could take a chance as a scared teenager on becoming an actor than I could certainly take a chance as a confident mature adult- go ahead and insert the laughing and eye rolls here at the words confident and mature. LOL but seriously, I figured what the heck. If I’m unhappy I was going to do something about it.
So here I am! 3yrs later with a successful business and loving every minute!
Please tell us about your art.
I’m a natural light photographer that craves authentic moments. I love capturing genuine interactions between people.
Families, couples and newborns are my specialty but throw in a fur baby and I’m over the moon. I also shoot boudoir photos to empower women and let them reclaim their fire!
My hope is that my clients will come away from their sessions feeling all the love through their photos that they feel in their everyday lives. As someone obsessed with photo’s I love to make time stand still so that we can look back forever on a single moment and relive that time.
My sessions or art (which I love saying and have had a hard time claiming) are not about “posing” with your family but actually “being” with your family. Sharing all the giggles, love and snuggles and letting them be frozen in time.
We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
Well, working from home with two littles running around I wouldn’t necessarily call myself lonely in some respects, but I do crave being around other creatives. I strongly recommend joining a group that meets up for coffee (I’m told this is a great idea anyway) or find a mentor that you can bounce ideas off of (I have one of these and I call or text with questions on the daily), or a likeminded friend that “gets you”. I actually need to work at this more too, so I would love some advice as well! LOL
