south gippsland photographer, photographing - births, newborns and families

Hi friends, 

Thanks for stopping by!  

I'm a photographer who has recently moved back to the rolling hills of South Gippsland - to a tiny town called Arawata! Growing up in South Gippsland, led to a love of country life and a desire to explore our beautiful beaches. There is nothing I love more that taking families to explore our amazing country side together.

I have two gorgeous girls of my own and have spent a great part of my working life as a Primary School teacher. So I know how to create a fun filled environment for your shoot, full of games, exploration and laughter.

This is my 6th year in business and although I’m full time I have been taking it slow with a recent breast cancer diagnoses in the middle of 2018. Cancer has taught me the true value of photography, capturing the authentic moments and the genuine moments of tenderness shared with each family member.

I also specialise in newborn and birth photography. Offering in home sessions to document your newborn love bubble and birth photography services for home and hospital births for surrounding towns and suburbs.

If you are interested in any of my photography services - I sure do love to chat - so don’t hesitate to reach out.

Love Mel x

This image of my sister, her partner and my nephew, was taken at my home town. It includes a very iconic tree known as One Tree Hill, that overlooks the entire town.
