Hello & Welcome!

Whether you are becoming a parent for the first time or documenting your growing children, I will be able to capture those special memories for you to cherish forever, as well as guide you through the entire photography experience with ease. 

If you love the idea of a relaxed photo session and having your artwork printed please contact me, so we can plan for this experience. 

I can't wait to meet you and your family soon. 


Melanie Williams Photography

“We were absolutely blown away by the photos Melanie took of our newborn. She was so incredibly patient with our little one and captured her tiny little features so beautifully. I trusted Melanie completely and I was even able to get some sleep myself while she worked with our baby. The results were stunning and I'm so glad we did it."

Capturing the special moments with your family begins during pregnancy, and as a mother I understand the intense emotions you’ll be feeling, and how fun capturing these early moments can be.  The best time for your maternity photography is between 32 weeks and 36 weeks. It’s during this time that your bump is well-defined, but you’ll still be able to pose comfortably for a photo session. 


When you have a new baby of your own, your whole world changes. The phrase “moments are fleeting” takes on a new meaning, as you begin to understand just how quickly time passes with your little one. Babies change and grow so quickly - especially in those early days of their life. Booking a newborn session will help you capture these moments in time - moments that you will never get back. These are more than just photographs; these are pieces of artwork for your family that will only grow in value. It brings me so much joy to know that you and your children will be able to look back and treasure these memories in the years to come.  The perfect time for a newborn photo session is during the first two weeks after they are born.  In these first few days, baby is the smallest it will ever be and does not mind too much, being posed in various ways.  It is the best time to achieve those sleepy Newborn portraits. 

Newborn sessions are held in the comfort of your own home, where I provide a variety of props.

Family portraits are a celebration of your loved ones. They truly tell a story and capture everyones emotions and connections. The time spent with our families can fly by before we even know it, and it’s important to make sure that each exciting moment will always be remembered.

My approach is to offer gentle direction, that will result in candid moments. Family sessions take place outdoors on the beach or at a park of your choice in the Perth metro area.


I believe that your beautiful portraits deserve to be seen and enjoyed every day, not lost on an old hard drive. That’s why I work together with the best makers in the country to turn your portraits into art. These heirloom pieces make a statement in your home and will fill you and your children with joy and confidence every time you look at them.  I offer custom framed prints, canvases, albums, portrait boxes and unique metal prints. Digital files can also be included.  


The Experience

Your photography experience with me should be relaxed and stress free.  I take the time to help you plan everything from your wardrobe to finding the perfect location for your session in and around Perth.  Finally, I help you decide on the images and products you love and wish to display in your home.
