Meet Melissa…

Who's this Melissa dame?

Hello new friend! I'm ECSTATIC you're here. I'm Melissa Luella Rush. I remind women how genuinely beautiful and fearless they are. My purpose in life is to inspire each woman who comes in front of my lens. I’m a mirror to their greatness and fabulous potential! 

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

I'm obsessed with discovering the secret to people's greatness aaaand dark chocolate, meditation, a good cup of joe, new adventures, wine, dancing my butt off, anything dainty, things with 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've also heard I pack so much energy in my teeny tiny body. I 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 amuses me and optimists inspire me. I like a simple life... when I grow up I want to become a minimalist! Last but not the least, there is NOTHING more important to me than beautiful human connections.

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.”
