"The past year or so has been particularly rough on my self image. I couldn't look in the mirror without picking apart what I was seeing. I could only see a person whose worth and beauty was defined by unfortunate circumstances she had endured. The image in the mirror was a broken, jagged mess impacted by people who did not handle me with care.
I couldn't see anything beautiful or remarkable or special when analyzing myself. I only saw rejection. I was rejecting myself just like I perceived others had done to me."
"I had the incredible fortunate of finding Fox Photography by Melinda Fox through a friend. Melinda's photos are delicate and beautiful, but the way she writes about her clients is unique. She has this incredible gift of seeing a person to the bone and articulating everything about them that is lovely, special, and perfectly human."
"I did a photoshoot with Melinda because, for once, I just wanted to feel pretty. Whole. And she made me feel so much more than that. I'm truly awe-struck at these photos and this experience that she gave me.
Thank you, Melinda and Shea Hollister, for helping me see my worth—both inside and out."
I truly adore this sweet woman and her words speak to the truth and work she's put into herself. All of that simply made her experience all the more meaningful and important.
