Hey, I'm Melanie.


I am a creative consultant and natural light, on-location photographer with a strong focus on transparent branding, family photojournalism and lifestyle photography.

A shoot with me will be laid-back, easy and fun as I help tell your stories through my lens, capturing the sincere, real, silly, loving moments that will be ever-cherished by you.

My non-photo time is spent playing music (let's jam!), making art, cultivating community, building websites, writing, dancing, taking care of babies, supporting women through self-care practices, cooking healthy gluten-free meals, driving to the mountains to gaze at stars, and sharing adventures in nature with friends.

I'd love to know more about YOU! Tell me here.
