My name is Melissa Murciano I am based out of Southern California. I was born and raised in Queens, New York. I moved to California in 2006 with my husband. We have two boys who were born with a camera in their face. I started out working as a Newborn Photographer for a Photography chain at local hospitals. Although I loved my job I felt very limited with my creativity. Focused Love Photography is where I pour my heart and soul. I aim to focus on the authenticity of life and the beauty behind it. I love documentary photography. The way you can tell a story with photographs is the reason why I became a photographer. All of our stories are important. They are meant to be passed on from generation to generation. I love being able to give my clients moments they may have missed otherwise. When I am able to capture the feeling of that moment, is when I am fully fulfilled.
