Thank you so much for visiting my page! Photography has been part of my life for over 15 years. It started out as a hobby with my little point and shoot camera, taking photos of my children and nature. In 2010, after being a homemaker for over 20 years, I decided what I wanted to be when I grew up, and it was a Photographer! I also wanted to show my children it’s never too late to chase dreams so I decided to get my Associates Degree.  


Missy Neely Photography opened its doors in 2011, and I quickly realized that I wanted to work with women in particular. As a mom who was always on the go and who rarely took time for herself, I wanted to create an experience where my clients were pampered, and made to feel confident and beautiful.  


My passion is to show women how beautiful they are and to empower them! MNP specializes in Creative and Artistic Portraits for women including Pin Up, Retro, Vintage, Boudoir, and Modern Glamour & Beauty photography. Let me show you how uniquely beautiful you are!
