Amplify the visual story of your brand...





Soul-fuelled lifestyle Photography for Entrepreneurs, small businesses, products and services. A personalised, dynamic and inspiring approach to creating a powerful visual voice for your business and vision.  It brings the 'you' into your brand.

A first impression is powerful and you only get one chance. Your 'virtual space' is your shop front. It's the face of your business - if your business is as you offering a service or a product your imagery is your packaging.  We work together to deliver imagery that enhances your product or services and attracts your ideal client.

Align your imagery to be an authentic expression of who you are and how your business makes an impact on the world. Every lifestyle shoot I do is tailored to reflect both you as an individual -  but also your brand, message and mission. Professional imagery on your website or social media screams professional operator. 

The impact of your imagery on your website must not be underestimated; it speaks of you as an individual, your lifestyle, close ups, stills – when done well; will evoke an emotional response from your potential client - that emotion creates the connection your client needs to feel to invest in you and your services.




'Mel knew exactly what I needed from my photoshoot even before I did!'

If I could describe working with Melanie in two words it would be professional, and insightful.  Melanie knew exactly what I needed from my photoshoot even before I did.  From the initial discussion through to the final shots she was gently guiding me while holding space for my personality to emerge.   

The result, a glorious set of shots that has my website dripping with my essence and a new found confidence to use photos of me to promote my business.

Talk with her, work with her, play with her.  You will be mighty happy you did.

'Mel really captured the essence of me and my work'.

I loved working with Mel for my latest photo shoot. She really put me at ease and made the whole thing so effortless.
She was magic with the lens, I couldn't believe how well the photos came out, it absolutely exceeded my expectations. I felt that she really captured the essence of me, and my work.

'Mel has this amazing gift in being able to capture the core essence of a person'.

She made me feel so comfortable to just 'be me' and with that has produced a beautiful series of photos to help me stand out and shine my authentic light.

Thanks to Mel, I have received a collection of beautiful images I can use for my website and all my social media platforms. I wholeheartedly recommend her if you are a Soulpreneur, Life Coach, Creative or Holistic Health professional and are ready to be seen.
