My name is Mel, short for Meltem, which means the breeze – cool, right? How appropriate for a woman who grew up on the Mediterranean. I’ve been photographing raw connection, love, laughter, and everything in between for 3 years now. My work is all about capturing the essence of YOU and your story as it unfolds in front of my camera. Every session is special to me. It’s beautiful, it’s messy, it’s totally unique. I’m passionate about capturing every part of it.
Stuart Family, Maternity & Couples Photographer
"Mel was a dream to work with! She did an amazing job of making us feel comfortable and making every pose feel natural! I am so glad that we found her."

I am not a photographer who focuses on perfectly posed moments. My style is so much LESS formal! It is authentic, natural, and fun. I absolutely love the wind in the hair, splashing in the water, rolling in the sand, cuddling up to each other, carefree giggles, and the moments where I catch you soaking up every second with each other.
“I tend to think of the act of photographing, generally speaking, as an adventure. My favorite thing is to go where I’ve never been.”
- Diane Arbus
