Photograph of fine art photographer Melissa Bagley

Melissa Ann Bagley,  Fine Art Photographer

When I founded my business in 1995, I had a simple goal…to add beauty to my client’s lives.

Whether it may be through a beautiful print for your wall, a luxurious journal to jot your hopes & dreams in or commissioned portraits, my goal is to bring joy and beauty to your life with my photography.

Everything I create is inspired by the beauty I see around me and in people.

Being based on the Central Coast of California gives me constant inspiration. I’m surrounded by rolling hills covered in lush vineyards and to the west of me, the rugged California coastline. The beauty I see in my clients always inspires me to create portraits of them that tell their story and mirror their beauty.

Would you like to work together on a project just for you or your company? Commissions are now open for both my fine art work and portraiture. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have.

I ordered one of Melissa’s Fine Art Miniatures and I LOVE it! It was even more beautiful in person than pictured online. I love that it’s a small piece of art that adds a little character to our living room. It’s obvious that Melissa really pours her heart into her craft, and I’m so happy to have a piece of hers in our home! She is also super sweet and responsive which makes buying from her that much more wonderful. Thank you, Melissa!!  – Cara J
Her work and caring for her customers is top-notch and I will be ordering more. – Shad H
Melissa has such an eye for capturing the delicate beauty in nature. No detail is overlooked! I love that she offers so many different ways to enjoy her art. I have sent out several of her greeting cards, I love collecting the magnets and her framed miniatures are the coolest! Definitely check her out. I guarantee you’ll find just the right item to add some beauty to your day. – Jessica R
Melissa’s photos are always beautiful so I knew the cards I ordered would be pretty but, wow! The quality of the print, paper, texture, even the packaging, exceeded my expectations! The photos really come to life on this bamboo paper in a way that the online pics can’t quite capture. The light and depth were enhanced by the slight texture and they felt lux to the touch. The friends I sent them to were delighted with them and remarked on the high quality, much nicer than anything you’ll find in a box store. I love too that they are blank, allowing them to be used for any occasion instead of pigeon holing your favorite pictures for only one possible use. If you’re thinking about ordering anything from her store, do it. You will not be disappointed! – Lydia S
I’ve always loved Melissa’s work and was so excited to be able to get a few of her miniatures. She is attentive and ships out quickly. Not only are the pieces beautiful, but the packaging they arrive in is both beautiful and thoughtful! I look forward to acquiring some more and seeing what else she creates! – Athena B
