I am passionate about most photographic subjects - but particularly portraits, and small still life objects - all underpinned by a desire to create the environment for natural characteristics to shine through. And then I capture those characteristics. I am more of an instinctive photographer than a textbook one, so creating the right atmosphere in your session is vital.
But the most important person in my work is you.
I will work closely with you to understand your needs and desires, while using my experience to offer thoughts of my own. I then translate all of these wants into images full of life, vigour and character.

Here are a few things that people have said about me:
"We have really enjoyed our photoshoot with you! We loved the fact that you made us feel so comfortable in your home studio and that you took some time to do some pre- research on the type of photos we were after, and had ideas/materials to propose to us. The end result are great photos which we can’t wait to print out and share with our family and friends!" EK, January 2018
"This is the third time we have used Melanie for photos of our children and we couldn’t be more pleased. She photographed our twin boys and daughter just after the twins were born, then again 4 years later and just now another 4 years later. She definitely got the best out of the children making them feel at ease (especially our teenage daughter). The shoot was held in her home which felt less formal. The photos were processed the same day and are stunning. It was hard to choose which ones to have! Love them and will be back in another 4 years! KC & SC, November 2017
