Family Lifestyle Sessions

Hanging out at home and in your natural surroundings or at a favourite location playing with the kids, making mud pies, splashing in the water at the beach or hanging out at the family bach. I like to capture whatever fun you like to have as a family that reflects how you truly are together. Tying up loose shoelaces, those little hands holding yours as you walk, an impromptu snuggle. These precious moments that pass by so quickly.

‘Melissa made our family feel instantly at ease with her fun and easy going personality. She had a way of taking the photos while engaging in conversation which made us forget about the camera. We just had a fun time and the process was very natural and easy. We were so pleased with the beautiful way in which she captured our family. I would work with her again in a heartbeat! Thank you Melissa!’

‘I really like Melissa's easy going personality, my children responded well to Melissa and felt relaxed. She wasn't asking them to pose or do anything they didn't want to do which would just make my kids reject the whole process. Instead she subtly engaged with them while they explored a local beach. She took some magic photos of them in natural play that we will cherish for ever! 

I would definitely recommend Melissa to friends and have been!  Her photos are the proof of the pudding and speak miles for her talent and eye for beauty.

Thank you Melissa for the gift of time. A moment in time in our lives that has been captured so naturally and honestly.’

‘Melissa is wonderfully relaxed but focused and made my children feel very much at ease, and happy to continue enjoying what they were doing while the photos were candidly taken, it was the perfect way to capture the essence of who my children really are.’
