Telling stories through pictures

Hi, my names is Melinda and I love telling stories through pictures and words. My photography work is documentary and portraits, my writing is essay style. My focus in photography is the small moments, the details, the emotion, the everyday ordinary. There is an immense amount of trust placed in me, my eye and camera to allow me to capture images within the flow of family life that is being experienced at that moment, and in the vulnerability of portrait photography.  I am grateful and humbled to have the opportunity to show you through my eyes your precious life.

Ordinary everyday moments are the thread that make up our lives, our work, relationships, the seasons, the process of an “ordinary day. All events that seem commonplace, minor moments that happen every day. I want to capture the moment preserve it in a single click, that moment, the one that you didn’t realise was so special. Life; people, health, wealth changes. Nothing stays the same, everyday ordinary images captured in that very moment stay the same. The smile, the hands, the details of the space, the connection, the love. Let’s seize those moments! So you will have the images that I capture of your life to look back on, the “ordinary, honest” moments that will start a conversation, leading you down memory lane, to times, people and places that have changed, grown, moved on, some forgotten but cherished.
