"Melanie is the best Mississippi photographer in the business, because she's professional, fast, and dependable. She knows how to get just the right pose, lighting, and composition to make a photo a work of art. As a matter of fact, I use her photos on my book covers.

"I have had many photos taken through the years, including professional headshots, and none have equaled the professional quality that I see in the work of Melanie Cavert Benton! She not only has the ability to shoot great shots, but she also has an eye for what looks best for her subject. This includes the posture of the subject being photograped, as well as the clothing and background. Her lighting is also used very effectively in each photo, whether, it be portrait or landscape!"

Gerry Glenn Jones



"Melanie Calvert-Benton is an efficient photographer, and provided me with a quality head shot while working under a strict deadline. I would refer her to others looking for a positive, professional photography session."

Lisa M Willis


"I've known Melanie Calvert-Benton and her photography expertise for seven years. With any outstanding creative work, the artist must 'live their art' with great energy, a never ending goal of doing the best, and accountibility. Melanie has proven her abilities in each area. Anytime I have contacted Melanie with a project, she arrives early, with ideas and great interest, a genuine plan, and most importantly, a talented eye and almost a premonition of exactly what I need."


Anne B. McKee
Author and Story Teller


“Melanie recently took head-shots of my 15-year old daughter for a modeling agency submission.  My daughter was somewhat nervous, but was immediately at ease when Melanie started shooting.  She made my daughter comfortable, talking her through the shots and capturing her natural look, rather than posed.  Melanie paid great attention to detail, lighting and the surroundings.  We moved to three different locations, and at each, Melanie worked to ensure the best angles and lighting so the photos would all be good.  We reviewed the photos on her laptop, I made my choices and within a few days, I had the finished products from her.  Working with Melanie was fun and interesting—we will definitely use her services again!”
