Portraits of your shimmering light - your BE-ing. Tuning into your own light and vibration, the portrait becomes a witness to your radiance.
are meditative portrait sessions where you connect to the subtle motion of your inner spirit, your heartbeat and breath and tune into your own light and vibration. I capture your radiant light in portraits that will remind you that feeling your own presence is the key to finding peace and joy and connecting to what really matters in life.
“Our session was a gift of time…
to slow everything down, to settle in, inhabit my being, and an invitation to move on impulse. Melanie’s energy is beautiful; accepting and curious, open and calm...which caused me to feel whatever might transpire would be just right and more than enough. What a unique experience, to feel like my soul was being captured, my essence painted and recorded in a way I could not imagine...any awkwardness alchemized trusting the eyes of an artist sharing and seeking beauty...through this process I felt an appreciation and reminder of my unique presence and expression accessible to me at all times.”
“I was looking for the moments of me so that I could share them and shine them to you because I wanted them to be captured and reflected for all time.”
“As a woman…
in a photograph you’re always conscious about what you look like and what you’re projecting and this was the first time I’ve been able to stand in front of a lens and not feel the need to do that.
The act of being able to be yourself and be accepted for yourself is the greatest gift you can give anyone, and the photography session literally gave me that gift. I wasn’t worried about the lines or wrinkles or any of the imperfections because I knew that through your lens I would be beautiful no matter what happened.”
