An Imagination Session

is a family photo session where your kids get to play, be creative and have fun!
I provide them with materials that inspire imaginative play and they DREAM, PLAY, and CREATE. I follow their lead, photographing the dreamscape of their imagination.

You will get beautiful photographs that document who your children truly are at this moment that give you a glimpse into who they will become.

When you experience an Imagination Session you will

  • Have fun!
  • Feel more connected to and grateful for your family
  • See your children’s creativity expand.
  • Get beautiful fine art photography for your home that captures your child’s true spirit and that connects you to your child’s beauty and potential.
  • You will gain greater insights into who your children are and your children will feel like their voice and their vision matters.


When your children see themselves as subjects of art they feel valued and loved. They see themselves as extraordinary. They see themselves as protagonists in their own story.

"I love Melanie's sincere child-centredness. From the very beginning, when we were planning our session, she always had the children's best interests in mind. This also resonates in the images she takes. She has a knack for capturing a person's energy and what they're about."

~ Karina H.

I have spent my life as an artist.

I am grateful for this. I was encouraged by parents who believed that creativity was important and who trusted me to find my voice.

I believe in empowering children to be artists and visionaries, to be curious about life and to trust their voice and vision. Exploring creativity helps children make sense of their inner and outer worlds and gives them the confidence to express who they really are. I believe self awareness leads to greater happiness and success in life.

"Melanie connects. Within moments, she had my kids chatting with her like they’d known her all their lives."

~ Dawn M.

“Melanie was incredibly professional and kind. The finished product was nothing short of amazing. Honestly, I cried when I saw the beautiful pictures of my six-year-old, so full of life and smiles. We will cherish these photos forever. Melanie isn’t a photographer – she is an artist.

~ Sarah M.
