Looking for something extra that'll help you land that dream career? Has it been ages since you've updated the resume? Looking for something other than those old prom photos or that one carefully-cropped shot from the last time you got dressed up? Headshots today are all about showcasing who you are -- not just a set of fancy clothes, but a backdrop that fits your style and professional approach. You want something that shows off your confidence; something that exudes trustworthiness and warmth. Look no further than my LinkedIn/Headshot Package. We'll work together to find a location that fits your style and personality. I can also work with you on finding the right wardrobe for your headshot session. I shoot with an 85mm lens, which allows me to bring out your best features and gets a nice background blur -- so that when your resume lands where it needs to, it gets you that interview and the job.

Hey there! Glad you stopped by, I'm Melanie and I've been a visual storyteller for over 7 years now! As a passionate West Coaster, I'm all about finding moments of beauty within the environment and wherever we can. I would classify myself as a people person because I love capturing moments for souls to keep for themselves. I love Vancouver because it's the perfect combination of being close enough to the mountains to explore the wilds, yet only a short walk away from the sweetest coffee shop to share stories with friends or meet new people. I'm constantly searching for the best pockets of light in the places that are precious to my friends and clients. There are so many beautiful locations to discover! I value respect, joy and passion for life and I would love to show you how I can capture beautiful imagery to incorporate artistry into the day to day. I'm honoured to work with amazing clients who value photography and can attest to its impact on their lives. Proudly serving the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC Community
I specialize in candid documentary. My philosophy: embrace the weird in you. The quirks, the smirks, and the unguarded moments are the ingredients to making a lifestyle portrait an authentic representation of you. When I'm in the zone, I become some sort of ninja where I blend in and not be obtrusive to anyone or anything. But I can make my presence known whenever I'm needed. I can easily transition from being inconspicuous to guiding a session, giving you prompts and poses to make you look your best. I capture lifestyle headshots from as many different points of view and angles as I can. Above everything else, I want you to feel comfortable in your own skin, enjoy the experience and be confident that you'll end up with incredible photos at the end.
Headshots are a way to connect with your potential clients that your textual accolades cannot. A professional headshot is an investment in your personal brand. It showcases you at your best, allowing your prospective clients to see you. Your best clients deal with people, not companies, and it is you or the team members in your business that help establish the long-term relationships with your clients. Professional headshots are now everywhere especially with the help of social media. Be it Facebook or Linkedin, the first thing you see on those pages are one's headshot. They draw attention, and faces help people remember. In this day and age, it is more important than ever to have an impactful headshot that can help get yourself out there. Having the right headshot is just as critical. The wrong or dated image can convey a lack of professionalism or authenticity. This initial bias, whether right or wrong, may have your clients judge you unfavorably and you will never get a second chance to make that first impression. The right headshot will give people an idea of your personality before they meet you, reminds contacts of who you are at that business conference, and should give you the confidence to share more of yourself with others.
