Hello, bombshell!

I'm Melissa Luella Rush…

..and my passion is reminding women how genuinely beautiful and fearless they are! My purpose in life is to inspire each and every woman who comes in front of my lens. I’m a mirror to their greatness and fabulous potential!

For years, I’ve honed my craft to create my signature photographic style that highlights women’s natural beauty. That’s right girlfriend, I love how you look just the way you are! Women with all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds commission my art to create their finest intimate portraiture.

I'm obsessed with discovering the secret to people's unique greatness. The secret to mine is definitely dark chocolate, meditation, a good cup of joe, new adventures, wine, dancing my butt off, and forging beautiful human connections. I squeal over anything dainty, black and gold, and bikinis (what do you expect? I was born and raised in the Philippines where there are over 7 thousand islands - fun fact).

I also have a secret: I'm older than I look and it's mainly because I'm 5'2 on a good day and can fit in your pocket. In my past life, I worked at an advertising agency doing media strategy for music labels. People with dry humor amuse me and optimists inspire me. I like a simple life... when I grow up I hope to be a minimalist! Enough about me, I want to get to know YOU! Let's chat and tell me your story.


She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. 'Time' for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.”
