Hi, I’m Mel! I am a photographer and artist based in Midland MI.

There's nothing more important to me than family and I am blessed to live in a house full of boys: my husband, two sons and two dogs! My husband and I grew up in Australia. In 2002 we moved to Norway (where our boys were born) and then in 2013 we moved here to Midland, Michigan. I have loved living in all three countries and think of them all as home.


I have been photographing since my early teens. I fell in love with photography then and still love it 30 years later! Over the years, I have worked in many different areas of photography including: families, newborns, weddings, graduations, schools, fine art, commercial environments, as well as for websites, pamphlets, and newspapers. During this time, I have won several awards for my photography.


I also have a passion for pottery, to create 3D art from mud! Not only do I work on my own projects, but I also teach classes to Artshop students at Creative 360. 


The best thing about my job is the different people I get to meet and friendships I make. I love hearing about your story and creating special memories that are cherished for many years.
