About the Artist

Thanks for stopping by! My name is Mellisa Pendleton and am the owner and artist of KRJ Photography. The number one question I get asked about is what my business name means? lol. The initials are of my first 3 beautiful children. Then our last sweet little human came along and well, the business name never changed. Bless. I am a wife, a mother to 4, and I see the beauty in everyday moments. The cries, fears, tears, and love. Before I took my business full time, I was an OBGYN nurse for 6 years. Something clicked in me after our 4th born. The desire to capture every little moment was strong. Maybe knowing she would be our last fueled that drive. 

Being in business for 5 years now has taught me a few things about my art. The moments I strive to capture for myself is what I want to strive to capture for yours. No family is perfect. But we are all imperfectly perfect. We have our own way of parenting, calming an exhausted toddler, making breakfast full of fruit-loops or pancakes, and the way we love.

I want to live this life that God has blessed me with to it's fullest and show you how blessed you are as well. 

I can't wait to meet you & capture who your family really is. 

xoxo, Mellisa
