Hi I'm Melissa, the gal behind the lens!

I am an Islander, born and raised in Jersey Channel Islands, the most beautiful place ever! 

 

I’ve always felt really drawn to anything that tells a story. As kids, my brother and I used to flick through tattered albums that introduced us to family members that we hadn’t met, or that were no longer with us. Seeing photos of our parents as youngsters before we were around and envisioning the type of people they were back then always had such a profound effect on me. I wanted to be able to offer the gift that imagery has given to me and pass it on to others.

 

Photography is so much more than just snapping the shutter. It’s about understanding your client, being relatable and approachable, but most of all it's about creating a safe space to express yourself. Capturing my clients for who they really are is what it's all about for me. 

 

When I’m not working you’ll find me swimming in the sea, potentially crocheting a blanket (nanna would be proud), or hanging out with my nearest and dearest!

 

If you’ve made it this far on my website, I hope it’s because you like what I do and feel connected to who I am. 

Our lives are collections of experiences, bonds and a whole load of love. Being able to capture beautiful moments of yours is a total honour.
