Welcome to the Melanie Foster Blog

celebrating OU seniors and Bartlesville and Tulsa families through photography.

Hey, y’all! 

I’m Melanie, the girl behind the lens at Melanie Foster Photography. Whether you’re getting ready for your upcoming OU senior or your Bartlesville or Tulsa family photography experience, I hope you’ll stay a while, pick up a few tips, and be inspired for your own MFP photo session! 

2019 OU Senior | Faith | OU Graduation Photographer


“I was honestly really nervous about this, but it ended up being SO much fun.” – THIS GIRL!!! This is what I love to hear! Faith has a corner of my heart because of this sweet comment right here, but also because she woke up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday for a 7:15AM session. I don’t schedule sunrise shoots all that often, but this one was absolutely worth it and I LOVED getting to photograph her in a few different locations on campus since we had opposite light! It also felt like we had campus totally to ourselves – HUGE bonus!! (Why is that I can’t say huge without thinking about this? Hahahahaha)

Three words I would use to describe Faith – adventurous, intelligent, and kind. She is a rockstar of all rockstars. PE-ET, Homecoming court, Tri Delta, OU tour guide, PLC alum…and that’s only a few of the honors and organizations she’s been involved with at OU! Faith is hoping to pursue medical school and has an adventurous spirit that led her to go through EMT training out west recently! I think my jaw was on the ground hearing about it – there’s nothing this girl can’t do!

Above all, Faith was so intentionally kind throughout her MFP senior experience. Of course there are people that are nice and warm, but then there is Faith – on the next level. She set the bar high. This time is all about her – her future dreams and plans, what she has loved about OU, her relationships, passions…and she was the one asking about me during our shoot! It was obvious that she values her friends, family, and building authentic relationships with people. I adore her and was so glad to have the opportunity to get to know her a bit better during this time!

Wishing you all the best, friend! Cannot wait to see where life takes you!
