My name is Mel. I'm a photographer, wife and mum of four based in the seaside town of Ocean Grove on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula, Wadawurrung Country.
I've been taking pictures since becoming a mum way back in 2001. Documenting those fleetingly precious moments in between, the ones we don't often pay attention to are my favourite moments of all. They're the ones that tell our story.
Most of my photography centres around humble places, people, artists and their creative spaces. Capturing people in their homes or studios and telling their authentic stories through my lens is one of my greatest joys.
