Book Your Session

The Beauty of Connection

There is no greater bond, no one with greater knowledge of the person that is the real you, than that of your family. Take this time to relax into a moment with those you love most, to breathe each other in, to play, laugh, explore and have fun, and I will capture those tender moments of your unique connection to keep for a lifetime.

Enjoy complimentary access to my high-end wardrobe as we capture these moments in your home - your sanctuary, amongst the golden hues of nature, or in the tranquil light-filled oasis of The Studio.

Family sessions are for immediate family only. Please see my Extended Family experience for larger groups.

Plus, add the 'Our Story' package to include the written story of your family alongside your images, presented in a linen album.

Why book your Family photoshoot with Melina?

Because I see you. I am you.

I am a mother of three small children that are growing right before my eyes and I long to make time stand still.

I'm not about capturing the 'perfect moment' for, in truth, perfection is in every detail. A child's curl kissing their cheek. Their cheeky grin. A woman's pride as she glows in bloom with her child. A father's embrace.

I am about capturing your connection, your love, your story.

I'm honoured to have this opportunity to create a time capsule of your family as you are right now to be remembered and treasured forever. For you, for your children, for your children's children... An heirloom. Your legacy.

I am dedicated to making your experience with me a whole lot of fun and one to treasure for a lifetime. I can't wait to make some magic with you.
