Blooming Babes Interview: Melanie Hodskins

Hey friends! I am Melanie. The owner and photographer of Melanie Hodskins Photography. I have been married 10 years this year! Woo hoo! And we have 3 of the sweetest little humans you have ever met. Or maybe I am just a teeny bit biased. 

What’s your favorite part about your job?
Letting my creative vibes flow!

What’s your least favorite part?
The algorithms of social media.

What’s your favorite product offer?
My keepsake albums are my favorite products. I am obsessed with albums.

What advice do you wish someone would have given you when you started out? 
Find you style and stick with it. I have bounced between light and airy and dark and moody, posed and unposed, dressy and casual. Finally in 2018, I finally had my style down and perfected. If I had to put it into words I would say my style is romantic and raw.

Where's your favorite place to work? 
In my studio. This is a space that I have created that really speaks to me and allows my vision to come forth.

What inspired you to start your own biz?
The love of creating moments between people that will be treasured for lifetimes to come. 

Is this a side hustle or your full time gig?
Full time, finally!

How long did you side hustle before going full time ?
I also have a college degree. I worked as a Surgical Tech in labor and delivery also. I LOVE that position also. After my third child was born and my business was out of control busy, I went down to 1 day a month in labor. So I have been full time almost a year. But really as busy as I have been I would say I have been full time longer. I just basically worked both full time positions.

Anything else you'd like to share?
I have created a special experience for my clients. My goal is to do all of the work for you from start to finish, from wardrobe to product to posing, I have you covered.
