Love, Unbound

You’re a mother who delights in who her children are. You love watching them explore, test, change and grow. Which is why you want more from your photo session than stiff poses and cheesy smiles. You want images that are a true and beautiful celebration of the people who are unfolding before your eyes.

Your artistry. Your beautiful family.

The photo session

A more meaningful experience

The life you’ve created is something to be admired; your family photographs should be the same. The journey to beautiful, flattering photos should be stress-free and tailor-made to you. Dust & Breath sessions are more than a hollow representation of what your family looks like, but rather a glimpse into the beauty of who you are. No generic poses, locations or forced smiles here. Instead we’ll create timeless, true portraits of your family’s love and connection. A reminder of how lucky you are to live this beautiful life.

The Service

Art on your walls

Living with what you love

Nothing is more important than the people in your home. The art on your walls should reflect that. Say goodbye to generic box store “art”. We’re going to work together to bring the images created during your photo session into your home. Let’s fill those blank walls, and breathe meaning and love into your haven. Because what’s the point of having photos taken if they just collect dust on a hard drive?

   Your home should tell the story of who you are and be a collection of what you love.

Personal Words

" Melissa has an amazing ability to see and capture the beauty around her. She is a delight to work with and always puts my family and I at ease. We have Melissa’s artwork displayed in our home, and it brings me joy daily." - Pamela
" After Melissa created our family artwork, I regret not making it a priority sooner. It would have been nice to have images of the girls both when they were little and now that they’re older. I’m so happy we finally did it!" - Wendy
" Melissa’s wall collage in our living is my favourite part of our home! The kids feel a sense of belonging; that they are loved and significant. Everyone tells us how beautiful the pictures are." - Amy

" Whenever I recommend Melissa, I always explain how involved she is in the whole process. I look back on our past photos and realize our outfits didn’t go together. We just showed up for the shoot and we didn’t look right. It’s so much more professional with Melissa, because she coordinates everything – from location to clothing – right from the start." - Leanne
" I often get teary-eyed looking at our pictures. They are incredibly symbolic and meaningful. Thank you, Melissa. They really are special to me." - Amber
Amber's Session
" For over ten years, Melissa has been creating cherished artwork for me. As a mother, I know how important it is to capture fleeting moments, and I am forever grateful that I can relive them so wonderfully through her photography. Melissa has serious talent, and that is evident by her work." - Katie

My Maternity Photos

Although my pregnancy was the delightful shock of a lifetime, the lead up was extremely deliberate.   I thought I’d get pregnant right away. Despite my naivety, I knew that once I was pregnant, life would change… that I would change! I was scared I’d forget this version of me. The day I scheduled my first […]
