About Me

My name is Melissa Kunkler. I share my life with 3 awesome children, Dakota, Kiona, & Logan, and my very best friend, Doug.

As long as I can remember I have loved taking pictures. I rarely go anywhere without a camera in hand. I always enjoy looking back at the memories of my life through the snapshots I have taken.


Welcome to Impulse Studio & Design, formerly known as Natures Background Photography. As you can see we are in the process of making some fresh and exciting changes. Big Ones! These changes have been in the thought process for a few years now. Natures Background Photography is in the process of an identity change. The transition into a boutique style studio is proving to be an exciting one. Gina and I are adjusting quite well. When I first started my business in 2001, I did strictly on-location photography. Then when I began to do studio work, I just felt as though my studio name did not fit anymore. I have always strived for strong relationships with my clients. Because for me, owning a photography studio has become more than work. It is really a part of who I am as a person. My clients know that my art is genuine and they appreciate that. We offer an experience that people can't find anywhere else in Orange County. I am excited and look forward to serving you with the same great service that you have gotten from Natures Background Photography. Thank you so much, without you we wouldn't be where we are today.
