Hi, my name is Melinda and I have created a business around the quote:
Our life, art and business are how we create it.
Meaning I am creating my life, art and business with love, curiosity and creativity.
I am a wife, mum of 2 boys and we live in Australia. I wrote a book called Remember – words for the beautiful mess that is motherhood. The morning of the 8th of July 2021 I woke extra early with an energy running through me that I had not felt before to that intensity. I went to my office and started reading through all of my writing for the past 19 years, I had no idea what I was looking for but as I was reading, the book created herself by laying the words perfectly on each page, the creation of Remember, publishing and selling of her was the most beautiful experience. I completely let go, I had no expectations, each decision was crystal clear and perfect.
I spent 2020 and 2021 deep in study, courses, masterclasses, mentoring and coaching each day I was studying something. I was searching for something; it was clarity and I didn’t know how to find it. I took action. I grabbed my camera and started shooting for clients – I have taken photos my whole life but only for myself and my family, I started marketing my business and I quickly decide I did not want this to be my sole income. I kept being curious, I kept studying, writing, reading, and listening, I kept building a network of wonderful women I connected with.
Curiosity led me to offer Virtual assistance support to photographers. Why photographers? Well, when I was sitting next to my son’s hospital bed in 2019 after a motorbike accident, I promised myself I would only do things that make my heart happy. Women photographers change the world and how other women view themselves, their life, and children. They show the world the of study light, and relationships, ideas, thoughts and concepts about our existence, motherhood, connection with each other and mother nature. Women in their own business, creating from their heart are important examples.
Virtual assistant support organically morphed into clarity mentoring conversations. Women came to me thinking they needed admin help, they were trying to keep up with trends, burning out in how they were marketing, they didn’t know their why or what they want outside of taking photos for money. When in conversation with me we pull apart what to keep and what to cull in conversations that are kind but uncomfortable, they make choices that felt clear for them, creating a sustainable foundation of why and the choices from that space are their own. They are creating a business that they choose and love whole heartedly.
As I said above I am creating a business my way and that includes writing books, being in conversation with women photographers and capturing women and mothers with my camera as well.
My photo sessions centre around showing women that they are the ultimate creators. They are creating life, families, art and business. The photos I take are to show women and to acknowledge what she is creating right now, and the images are the artifact of an experience of being in the present moment.
If you would like to be in a kind but uncomfortable clarity mentoring conversation to get clear on your WHY in business. I would love to chat.
If you would like to be seen in photos with your children, your art, or your business I would love to bring my camera and spend some time with you.
