My name is Melissa and I live in the most beautiful place in the world Cape Town, South Africa. Yes, I might be biased but living in this place makes me want to capture all the beauty I see around me.
A little about myself, I am a wife to an amazing man who shares my love for so many things including photography (even though his passion is music) and he sometimes accompanies me to shoots and is my second shooter. I am an all-round creative as you can see in my blog.
I am a lifestyle photographer and I love photographing people when they are not aware of the camera and their true personalities are revealed. Candid shots are my favourite!
I never could understand why photography was so appealing to me, but I recently started to realise that I loved watching people. I loved to see how they would interact with those around them. Their emotions, expressions and passions and I always wanted to freeze those moments to share it with them.
I love the quote “a picture is worth a thousand words”. I truly believe in capturing memories and emotions more than a staged pose. If you look back at your images years later, I would love you to remember the emotions, laughter and special memories of the day. To me a photoshoot shoot be memorable, easy, and above all fun.
