Book Your Session

The Beauty of New

Buttery, soft skin. Little fingers and tiny toes. Eyes that gaze into yours as if they've known you a lifetime. Gentle breath, calm in your presence. Your heart beats outside of your body now, forever.

With complimentary access to my high-end wardrobe and props for newborn and mother, captured in my tranquil light-filled oasis - The Studio, your home - your sanctuary, or amongst the golden hues of nature at my favourite locations, these moments - so intimate, so sacred, so fleeting - these are the moments to capture and treasure for a lifetime.

Why book your Newborn 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.
