Oh hey, I'm Melina.
PHOTOGRAPHER IN GEELONG CAPTURING RELAXED, HONEST AND AUTHENTIC CONNECTION THROUGH TIMELESS, BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHY.
I’m an emotive natural light lifestyle photographer who lives to capture connection, to pause this moment in your story to keep forever.
Becoming a mama to my three little ones - Albie, Adeline and Billy, pictured here with my main guy, Tim - has made me acutely aware of how fleeting time is. My heart aches with every moment gone and I long to never forget the small moments.
As a newborn, maternity, family and couples photographer, I want to give you images that help you to recall these small moments - a gentle touch, a sweet smell, the look of unconditional love - memories of deep, meaningful connection that stir your heart.
Formerly a writer by trade and always at heart, I developed my signature 'Our Story' add on to complement your photographs with the written story of you, featured in a beautiful linen album.
I'm for the lovers, the dreamers and the connection seekers.
Geelong, Melbourne and wherever your heart beats.
I'm a natural light lifestyle photographer which means you won't find any harsh studio lights or awkward staged poses here. My sessions are relaxed, but guided. I’ll gently direct you towards the best light, to embrace your connection, to breathe into the moment, but my intent is never to mould you into something you aren’t. I want to capture the perfectly imperfect, the in-between moments. You, just as you are, entranced in the moment, for that is where the magic is.
Journey with me at Golden Hour, when the warm light glows, the breeze softly caresses and a gentle peace settles over fields of gold, sparkling oceans and nature at its most beautiful. Settle in to your home, your sanctuary, the place where you are most you. Let the beauty of familiar create a wonderful calm. Or join me in my light-filled oasis, The Studio, a tranquil place away from the elements and a neutral canvas upon which your connection to one another is captured at its most beautiful.
I provide access to a high-end mother and newborn wardrobe, styling advice and guide you on our journey together to make your experience relaxed and stress-free.
