Melanie Nelson: Photographer/Owner
Like Us on Facebook
Black Dahlia Photography explores the landscape of faces and the spirits within.

BLACK AND WHITE services by Melanie Nelson include a wide range of portraiture customized for each client.
My head shots offer raw, straightforward glimpses of a personality and are an ideal image for actors promo cards. Or choose the other end of the spectrum, vintage Hollywood inspired dramatic portraits that ooze atttitude and drama. Many professionals such as real estate agents, entertainers, doctors and other high-PR fields appreciate our black and white services because they command attention in any advertisement. And singles looking to have the perfect photo for their internet dating profile find that a Black Dahlia portrait is the best way to get them noticed.

COLOR SERVICES are now available by Melanie for weddings and portraits - please inquire for consultation.

To contact Melanie, email [email protected] for pricing information or to schedule a sitting.
