Kiara December 2011

“Melanie is an amazing photographer! I love her work, and all the photos she has taken of my son and family. She is super patient and diligent. She spent hours with my son when he was a newborn just to help get the perfect photo for me. She also did a family photo shoot for us with 14 people which was huge, but she was great! She is such a wonderful person and helps create the most beautiful everlasting memories!!! Can’t wait to work with you again”.


Anna & John Burgess April 2011

“We received the photos in the mail today and Oh my goodness, they are perfect! Absolutely beautiful!! You have a real gift and I’m glad we met you and were able to get such amazing family photos for us. I especially love the family shot on the grass and the kids under the tree. Wow you’ve made my day! Thank you again”.


The Carter Family October 2010

“We first met Melanie in 2008 shortly after our first born William was born. Since then we have had the pleasure of using her another three times. We have used her for family and pregnancy shoot in 2010 before our second child was born. Then family portraits and newborn shoots after our daughter was born in the same year. And then again in 2012 for more family portraits. And every time she has captured beautiful shots of our family as it has grown into a family of four. She caught all the joy, tenderness, happiness, mischievousness, fun, excitement and love. She is unbelievably patient and creative even with a then two year old and a four year old misbehaving and running a riot. She caught the kids’ different personalities and lots of special moments that we will treasure forever. We would recommend her to any of our family or friends. And we will go straight back to her for all our future family portraits. And for our wedding in the near future.

Thank you so much Melanie xxx

Yours sincerely,

Katherine, Michael, William and Isabelle”.
