About

Hello! My name is Melissa Braden and I am the owner/photographer of Blackbird Studios here in Colorado Springs. A little about me-I am a mom to two wonderful children ages 10 and 14. I am a native to Colorado Springs and I can’t imagine living anywhere else! I am a social butterfly¬†that loves to get to know other people and turn their story into pictures! I have been a professional photographer since 2009 and I have loved every minute of it.

More about Blackbird Studios: since becoming a professional photographer, I have photographed everything from weddings to newborn babies, and throughout the years I have caught myself wanting to photographer more seniors. So that is where I decided that I wanted to put all of my focus on. This is a very huge time in their lives and they are about to embark on a new chapter in their lives and what a great opportunity to capture this monumental moment! Blackbird Studios focuses on telling your story of who you are, and make it unique. I shoot in both digital and medium format film, giving your photos a wow factor that you will cherish for years to come.
