Hey there! I’m Melissa, a lifestyle photographer in Oakville, Ontario. Those who know me well will tell you I’m a strong believer in adventure and an even stronger believer in doing anything and everything that makes you feel happy and wild.
So my biggest goal as a photographer? To bring adventure to your photo shoot, and to photograph you with the people – and in the places – that make you feel most at home. I promise this makes for the best photos.
During our shoot, I promise we’ll laugh, get adventurous, play, and help you find your wild. We won’t do anything that feels too posed or stuffy, which means we’ll just do what feels right and natural for you.
If this sounds like your kind of afternoon, let’s work together! (In case you’re wondering, I’m also animal friendly, and yes, you should bring your dog to your shoot. I’ll bring the treats).
BREAKFAST, LUNCH OR DINNER?
Breakfast. And breakfast for dinner.
I’M IN MY WILD WHEN I’M…
Holding my camera, out on a hike, exploring a new place – even better when it’s all three at once.
FOR ME, MY PERFECT FRIDAY NIGHT INCLUDES…
My fiancé Alex and my cat Phoenix, lit candles, open windows, tubs of ice cream, and our favourite TV shows.
MY TRAVEL WISH-LIST INCLUDES…
Patagonia, Switzerland, Indonesia, Montenegro, and Ireland.
(If you’ve been to any of these places, hit me up and tell me what you loved about them!)
THE PEOPLE CLOSEST TO ME KNOW…
Gilmore Girls is on a loop when I’m home, I leave books all over the house, and I can never say no to brunch.
