Hi I’m Mel – a maternity photographer based in Plymouth, Devon. I love capturing this precious time for parents to be in a relaxed, friendly and informal way so you get to enjoy your Bump and I get to capture it!
You find out your pregnant and gradually your amazing body starts to create what will become the love of your life!!! I am never more amazed as when I see how gorgeous every Mum to be looks, we may not feel it but its such a precious time to capture.
Bump shoots are relaxing and informal, a time to really reflect on how your life is going to change, whether in the studio or on location we show off that beautiful bump and bring together those who are going to cherish the little person that’s growing inside!
Its so lovely to get siblings involved in these sessions and make them feel special, I really cherish the photos I had when I was pregnant with my second baby, my big boy Elliott and I had a really special time together, showing eachother our belly’s, talking to and touching bump and enjoying eachother.
Showing some love
Mel has captured many important moments in our lives and we were so excited to have her as our wedding photographer to document our amazing day! Mel not only took the most amazing photographs but she did it with such ease and nothing was too much trouble. We had a large amount of children in our wedding party and Mel managed to keep them laughing and giggling giving us some great memories with our little people. She truly made our wedding day amazing and gave us some of the most wonderful memories to look back on of our beautiful day. Thank you Mel!Amelia and Daniel Peters
From day one we couldn’t have asked for a more professional and personal experience. Friendly at the outset and making us feel at ease in front of the camera, Melanie is truly fantastic at her job.Cary's and Phil Osgathorpe
We cannot recommend Mel enough. Mel has been absolutely brilliant from our very first point of contact and was amazing during the photo shoot with our little one. Everything was so clean and tidy and we enjoyed the whole experience as a family, especially during these crazy times with Covid. We received our photos today and got sneak peaks along the way and we can’t stop looking at them all. Mel has captured us all as a family and we have so many gorgeous photos.Thank you so much Mel we can’t wait to come back for the next milestone! XHannah Leah
