HOW IT WORKS
01. First Contact - Are We a Good Fit?
Deciding on booking a photoshoot can be exciting, nerve-wracking, and confusing.
There are a lot of things that go into a photoshoot and to decide who is the right fit for you.
Do I have to buy new outfits? Do I need to come with my hair and make up ready? What days are available? What about locations?
These are just a few of the questions you might be thinking about. Rest assured, we got your back. We provide a prep-guide for all of our clients so they can get ready be as prepared as possible for the session. All of our sessions include hair, make up and styling so you can sit back and relax while we do all of the planning for you.
02. Consult and Design
Once you have decided to book with us, we will get on a Zoom or phone call with you to go over every detail of your session from colour schemes to backdrop options and more. We will work with you closely to create images that are tailored to you and your unique needs and vision.
03. Styling & Wardrobe
We are a luxury, boutique studio which means we have a selection of outfits and drapings to use for your session. Depending on the genre of session you booked, we will advise you on what to bring, how to prepare and what to expect before, during, and after your session.
04. Pro Hair & Make Up
Our pro HMUA will work on your hair and make up before the photoshoot begins so you can sit back, relax, and have a refreshing drink. Our team will ensure you look and feel your absolute best. This is not just a photoshoot, this is an experience of pampering, loving, and appreciating YOU.
05. The Photoshoot
Melinda's goal is always to ensure you feel comfortable, beautiful, confident, and empowered. Melinda will guide you on posing and bring out authentic expressions to capture your true self in the most beautiful way. Melinda will ensure that all poses are safe for you to do and will discuss any limitations, wants, needs, and no-no's beforehand.
06. Retouching & Editing
Professional photo editing and retouching are essential parts to our all inclusive service. We specialize in fine art, magazine like editing which means we focus on the small details as mush as the whole image. Once your images are retouched and fully edited, we will schedule a Zoom call or in person session to reveal your images to you. During this time, we will go over your photos one by one and you will be able to decide which images you want to keep forever.

What People Are Saying
"I went to Melinda for a “mommy and me” session with my newborn daughter and we had a great time. The whole experience was lovely from the moment we arrived. Melinda is nothing short of professional, knowing exactly how to work with a newborn. She gave us breaks as needed to feed, provided the nicest outfits for us both, and knew exactly how to manage my daughter when she fell asleep. My family is in LOVE with the final edited images. I highly recommend Melinda!"
"We had an amazing time shooting our maternity photos with Melinda! She is so professional and has a very good eye for detail. Melinda is extremely talented in what she does, as she is meticulous and truly takes pride in her work. We are very grateful to have had her as our photographer!"
"Stunning photos!!! Melinda is a star!!! She was so kind to my little one and me; she captured lovely moments and gave me a gift because of mothers day. She cared about every detail so you could live a beautiful experience, not just a photoshoot. She delivers on time and best quality. I'm coming back for all future photoshoots :)"
"Melinda is wonderful at what she does. She is clearly passionate, educated and hospitable. She graciously took in myself and my newborn twins in her lovely studio for a mommy and me shoot. She was understanding and caring. I was fully looked after from the beginning of the session to the end of the session. The experience overall was one I will always remember. I am new to photo sessions and she guided me, kept calm with my twins and was extremely creative with the setups considering I only brought one outfit for myself. You would never be able to tell as she absolutely made the most out of it! Thanks again Melinda! I can't wait to book with you in the future. xo"
