Hello, I'm Mel and I am a boutique photographer based in Midland Michigan. My passion is capturing your precious moments and creating beautiful heirloom wall art that will be cherished for generations.
There's nothing more important to me than family and I am blessed to live in a house full of boys: my husband, two teens, 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 and working as a photographer in all three countries. I consider them all to be my 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 30 years, I have worked in many different areas of photography, but my passion has always been for families and high school seniors' portraiture. During the 30 years, I have won several awards for my photography.
During the week when I am not photographing, I am usually in the pottery studio or teaching art classes to students with disabilities. The weekends are spent with my family skiing, hiking, kayaking, watching swim meets, or just relaxing.
The best thing about my job is the different people I get to meet and the friendships I make. I love hearing about your story and creating special memories that are cherished for many years.
