Hi there and welcome to my website!

I hope you take the time to sit back and enjoy your visit. My name is Melissa (but feel free to call me Mel), I'm the owner/creator behind Melissa Sheed Photography and have been capturing gorgeous memories for Perth families since 2008.
I am an Internationally and Nationally award winning portrait photographer.

My style is not only creative, fun and whimsical but strongly Timeless and Elegant.

I am a natural and studio light photographer and my specialities are: pregnancy, birth, newborn baby, family and child photography.

I offer affordable outdoor, sunset, on location or beach photography sessions for expectant mums, children and families. I offer studio photography sessions for maternity, newborn baby, infant, children, family and 1st Birthday cake smash sessions.

I am a Mum to three absolutely amazing children, wife to a Carlton supporter and have a love for all things great and small. I am a perfectionist and love adventure, travel and discovery new and interesting experiences. Whilst juggling two extremely busy family businesses plus a very hectic family life is challenging, it brings me great happiness in sharing my creativity and creating wonderful memories for so many Perth families.

I started my business shortly after my daughter Lorelei, was born. At the time I had being working in the pharmaceutical industry for over 11 years, from community pharmacy to travelling over Australia as a drug representative. I discovered that my passion with the camera was somewhat of a hidden talent, so I have been nurturing it ever since. With numerous international mentoring trips and destination commissions I have photographed over 1200 newborns since late 2008. I simply LOVE what I do and nothing warms my heart more than capturing this fleeting time in my client's lives and giving them back amazing art pieces that will last beyond their life time. I am extremely blessed to have a husband that supports and believes in me and encouraged me to follow my heart.

I am so grateful to have such amazing love and support from my beautiful clients as without them I would not be here today. Thank you so much for sharing your precious babies with me, and thank you so much for your referrals.

I look forward to meeting you.
