Welcome to Melissa McGhee Photography!

Hey, there! Thanks for checking me out. I’m a photographer in Lee’s Summit, MO, part of greater Kansas City (Go Royals!), and I specialize in two separate areas: architectural and interior photography (I’ve photographed hundreds of hotels, resorts and other businesses over the last 8+ years all over the U.S. and internationally); and I also run a portrait business. 

More recently, I’ve slowed down on the travel work to spend more time around the people I love- my family, my friends and the love of my life, Cory- and have finally realized my dream of having a dog for the first time in my adult life. Arlo has destroyed SO MANY of my shoes, but he’s got my heart for sure, and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Now that I’m not jetting off to a different destination every week or two and have more time for new clients in KC, I’m growing my portrait business.

With this blog, I hope to offer several different things to keep it interesting and informative. Here’s what you can expect to see from me:

  • I’ll share my recent work, obviously!
  • Giveaways, contests and special offers! Everyone loves FREE stuff and DISCOUNTS, right?
  • Helpful tips for prepping for a photo shoot (I’ll break it down for each type of shoot: engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn, children, family, seniors, seasonal, etc.)
    1. Inspiration
    2. Outfit/accessory ideas
    3. How to take the stress out of photo day
    4. Much more!
  • What to expect from ME during a shoot- how I work and make it fun for you
  • Guides for awesome photo displays in your home
  • News on upcoming specialized mini-sessions and other photo promotions
