Newborn & Children Photography

Melanie Povey Photography is a professional portrait photographer specialising in newborn photography, baby photography, child photography and family photography. Her photography has a storytelling quality to it, capturing real-life adventures that cannot be put into words. She is inspired and fascinated with the magic and wonder of childhood, capturing each child’s unique personality and individual sparkle. Any age is the perfect age to have your newborn, baby or child photographed as each stage has its own beauty.

“It’s important to remember that we all have magic inside us” (JK Rowling).

As your child grows their personalities and interests grow with them.  Watching her own children grow is partly where Melanie’s passion for child photography was born, as the mother in her tries to savour and remember every last minute of this amazing experience.

Her style is just like childhood, whimsical, fun, adventurous, playful, upbeat and colourful; comfortable with capturing both natural organic lifestyle photography as well as creating an entire set based on a child’s dreams and imagination. She loves meeting new clients and creating a custom photography experience to suit them. Her studio is packed full of many little treasures that are there to be incorporated into any session you can dream up.

“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it” (Roald Dahl).

  • “ From when we arrived until the time we left the studio, we enjoyed every bit of it.  Melanie not only took beautiful photos, but knew how to interact with our kids and showed so much patience even when our kids were being difficult. We are so thankful for the amazing photos; we love, love, love them” (Moria).

  • “ We are so thrilled with the prints from our newborn shoot! Melanie was very flexible and able to accommodate all my ideas whilst also adding her own suggestions – some of which are my favourite. We loved the unique creativity she was able to add. The whole experience was great and we will treasure the photos of our 8 day old daughter forever ” (Hayley).
