New photographers occupy studio in Shortcut Alley downtown.

When Melissa and Jeff Seslar were looking for a new Central Ohio community, they did their research before deciding Delaware would be their next home for them and their three young children.

“I interviewed the whole town,” Melissa said.

The Seslars would post in different social media pages and asked residents’ opinions about the community, especially if they had kids. They would go for dinner in Downtown Delaware and ask people how they liked the community.

“We got an overwhelming response on how great the [Delaware City] Schools were and the active parent involvement,” she said. 

When Melissa and Jeff moved to Delaware, so did two entrepreneurs. Melissa owns Periwinkle Photography, a photography business that specializes in newborn and family photography. Melissa has had the business for about 10 years, but has been working out of her old Westerville office since moving to Delaware two years ago.

She said she wasn’t really looking too hard for a space when she stumbled upon her downtown studio tucked in Short Cut Alley on Winter Street, but it worked perfectly for her one-person business and her husband’s product photography business.

With a major in commercial photography, we feel that we should let her work speak for itself:

Welcome to Delaware, Periwinkle Photography!
