Arkansas native, Texas resident, and frequent world traveler—Meshali Mitchell is a portrait artist, lover of people, and a story teller. The quality of her work stands alone, known by its immersion in heart and soul. Over time, her childhood hobby for photography developed and eclipsed all other career interests. She now owns and operates Meshali Mitchell Photo, which is run out of her home but takes her all over the world. She is a creative image builder, confident in her style, and recognized for her ability capture the true heart of a moment. This site houses her photographs and travels, displaying the very heartbeat of her art. Every human being has a story worth hearing and a story worth telling. Meshali’s mission is to be a conduit for people to do just that.
Her true vision is for the one. It has been said that she honors people with her lens. In an unforeseen step of faith, the combination of a deep love for Christ, a heart for restoration, and an eye for creativity led her to purchase an 1886 Farmhouse in May of 2018. During this time, she began to document the restorative process, noticing how closely it paralleled her personal story of restoration--room by room, piece by piece. Soon after, she began to realize the house was all of our stories. Broken to beautiful. Beauty from ashes. Nothing too far beyond God’s reach. This current project and movement “A House God is Building” is now being carried across the nation into hearts of people who desperately need to be reminded of the restorative, transforming power of Christ’s love.
Even though she’s residing in a big metroplex, Meshali clings tightly to her southern roots and her love for the simplicities of life. Arkansan turned Texan, she loves her dog Belle, good Tex Mex, Diet Coke, big front porches, and quality time with friends and family. Outdoor life energizes and refreshes during her busy schedule, so you'll find her traveling or out on the lakes during any free time.
