Hello! I am Melanie: an inspired photographer who has been carrying a camera around for years. Eager to learn and to try new types of photography, I am here to capture a little peek of your life or any special events for you to treasure forever. I would love a chance to meet and chat to get a better understanding of what you want to finally give you exactly what you are looking for. Any questions!? Don't hesitate to ask.
Family photography is one of my passions. Capturing candid images of kids playing with their parents and siblings is such a joy. It‚Äôs a great honour to have many families coming back every year to capture new milestones. I offer a fun and relaxing experience for the whole family, focusing on your connection and interactions with one another. I take the time to play with your kids and make them laugh to make sure they feel comfortable and happy.
Let‚Äôs think big picture for a moment. 100 years from now, the memory of your life will be kept alive by the few dusty old photographs you chose to print and by the long lost files left on old computers and cell phones. My question is, how can I photograph you in a way that preserves the warm, loving feeling of your incredible family? How can I translate your unscripted moments into heirloom photographs that you and your future generations can come back to for years, decades and even centuries to come? It is from this place of inspiration that I approach each family session. My approach to photography is a delicate balance of organic emotion paired with gentle direction. With me, you‚Äôll never be left wondering what to do with your -insert body part here- hands, feet, belly button...baby toe? With me, you can both embrace your inner weirdo and let loose, because what‚Äôs the point of photographs if they don‚Äôt show the real you? All I need from you is a little bit of faith and a promise that you‚Äôll keep an open mind and heart throughout this process. Oh, and that you come well-fed because not everyone can pull off the hangry look in their photos! In return, I‚Äôll give you my best shot at time travel by creating a way for you and your family to go back to some of the best moments of your lives.
