Melissa Lavadour
Owner & Creative Director 

Cameras have always been in my life. Starting with my dad, and avid film photographer, I got my start at the age of 12 with his Canon A-1. I then got involved in the Art Guild at my high school as well as taking several photography classes that were available. This all lead me to enrolling in the Virginia Commonwealth University's Art Foundation Program and studied Architecture and Design. The concentration was on color theory, design and placement and detail down to the transparency of the glue we used for illustration board/building models. 

I then enlisted in the Marine Corps as a Combat Videographer (MOS 4671). During my 8 years of service, I was selected to attend the Military Motion Media Program at Syracuse University (Television, Radio and Film).

With several deployments and various duty stations, have been able to experience virtually all aspects of the video and photo realm as well as graphics.
Upon my honorable discharge from the Marine Corps in 2007, I was hired on as a Federal Employee for the Marine Corps as a director, producer and editor for dozens of shorts, PSA's and full-length productions. I am fluent in Avid as well as Adobe programs.

I have been doing freelance video, photo and graphics for over a decade for various industries to include commercial real-estate to maternity photo sessions to full-length DVD production. Since starting Spliced Frame Productions in the Summer of 2011 and it has been an adventurous roller coaster ever since. 


In November 2015, I graduated from Southern New Hampshire University, majoring in Marketing which is where I've really found my passion. I'm able to use all the elements of design I grew up with (photo, video and graphics) and put them to use for others who are looking for that extra push to get their companies 'out there.' I am a people person and I have a heart for seeing people succeed in what they love. 


Turning imagination into reality is what it's all about.
