ABOUT MELANIE TAYLOR
I feel I have been very lucky in life. I am a mumma of three beautiful little girls, who make me laugh every minute and inspire me every day. I am one of the lucky ones when it comes to finding love. I married my high school sweetheart 12 years ago. He is an amazing person, loving husband and devoted father to our girls and he has supported and encouraged me in everything I do, especially my photography journey. I’m blessed to live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. It was definitely our love of the beach and a laid back lifestyle that brought us to live here.
I’ve had a love of photography for as long as I can remember but my obsession really started when my husband and I spent many years living and working in remote Indigenous communities in North Queensland… I was captivated by the landscapes, the people and everything that was new to us … I wanted to record everything we experienced so we could share the images with our friends and family. While we were there, some very brave friends of ours were extremely trusting and asked me to photograph their wedding (eeeek… it was my first!)…but I’m so grateful to them because that’s when my real love of photography truly began. From that point on I really dove into photography and I knew I had definitely found my passion!
I love capturing the intense emotion between two people in love…. which is why I love weddings.
I love capturing true connections and relationships between people… which is why I love families.
I love everything about babies (who doesn’t?)…. which is why I love newborns.
More importantly, I just love creating memories. I really look forward to creating memories for you and your loved ones!
Thank you so much for taking the time to view my website and I look forward to hearing from you! xo
