With over 15 years in the industry, I know what it takes to capture those cherished moments and immortalise them for a lifetime.

Capturing a brand new life for yourself, friends and family to look back on is such a wonderful thing. Just recently becoming a mother myself, has made me look at the process of photographing babies in a whole new light. I know how quickly my little one is growing and I want to remember and adore every little part of my baby forever.

That’s why when it comes to newborn and baby photography I spend just as much time capturing all the little details, from toenails to quirky little cheek or shoulder fuz. Not to mention the connections between family members and the sweet little facial expressions you have come to know and love of your baby or newborn.

With a young family now of my own, I am committed to providing a quality service and limit the amount of bookings scheduled, to remain flexible with the unpredictable nature of Newborn arrival dates.

We have been lucky enough to have Mel Cieslik capture all 3 of our beautiful babies, as well as our maternity photos. She really works her magic and knows how to get the most perfect angle, line or moment during the photo shoot. The booking process is easy, as well as receiving our photos in a timely matter. We have loved every experience with her and would highly recommend Mel as your newborn and maternity photographer.

We chose Mel to be our photographer after falling in love with her work on social media. Mel was always happy to answer questions and discuss ideas. We found her to be incredibly warm, calm, patient and understanding. She has a beautiful way about her that helps your family to feel completely comfortable. With Mel we felt like old friends catching up, which helped us feel a lot more comfortable in front of the camera. I’m normally very self-conscious however with Mel’s extensive client wardrobe we were able to find something that helped me feel beautiful. With Mel’s knowledge and experience she positioned me in our photographs so that I also loved how I looked in them.

We have had Mel photograph our family for two newborn shoots and one maternity shoot, and each time she went over and above what we could have ever dreamed of. Mel captured our babies and my final pregnancy so perfectly and we will forever be grateful. She is incredibly generous, kind, caring and thoughtful. We feel so grateful and lucky that we had Mel capture such a special time in our lives and that we now have her beautiful photographs to help remember this time forever. It was so difficult to narrow down our selection as we loved every single one of the photos that Mel took.

Being first time parents with a brand new baby, just leaving the house was daunting enough, let alone having to do a photo shoot. However, Mel made it such a gentle, supportive experience and we relaxed the second we entered her beautiful studio. She was so delicate with our daughter (very important for new parents!) and filled us with confidence so we could just enjoy the experience. We love our photos and will treasure them for many years. I’m so glad we captured her early days, which went by in such a blur.
