Hello, I am Mel.

I was born in Indonesia and came to Australia in 1990. I am happily married to my best friend and recently in 2016 we renewed our wedding vows after 10 years of marriage. I am a mother to 3 young boys and 1 beautiful feisty little girl who I absolutely adore and are head over the heels in love with. Our kids can drive us crazy but they are our whole world! As we have no family around to help and our kids are only with me after school and on all school holidays so sometimes life can be hectic juggling with our work, home duties and everything in between. Every patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.  

Little things you need to know about me is that I am a coffee addict, food lover and I love to cook for my family. I love chocolates, cats and weekend drives when we have time. My ideal of a perfect day is being with my family and close friends, enjoying great food and lots of laughter at our favorite park or on the beach. 

I am a Darwin based, self-taught solo Photographer. I have been in this industry for 6 years. I specialize in Children, Family, Couples, Maternity, small Intimate Weddings and general Lifestyle Photography. I do what I love and love what I do! As a photographer, I love the vibrancy of everyday's life. I love natural light. I love simplicity. ​What I want the most is to make people happy with what I've captured. I offer natural, relaxed, timeless and high quality photography with affordable packages. I capture what I feel and see, from natural, vibrant & bright to dark & moody. I am all about capturing the emotions and the soul from that present moment.
