Melbourne Family & Newborn Photographer

Capturing Family JOURNEYS & creating photographic legacIES for you & your children


Hello! I’m Melanie, the smiling face behind the camera. For over 20 years I’ve been a passionate photographer. Growing up, I was constantly asked to photograph my friends, their children and even my own family. However, it was the arrival of my two beautiful children that made me realise just how important family photography is.

Because it’s not just a photograph. For me, a family photograph is about capturing a journey and creating a photographic legacy for you and your children. 

I felt so passionate about creating legacies for other families, I often dreamed of leaving my accounting and analytics job. 

And it seemed the universe also wanted me to follow my dream! It presented me with an opportunity to pursue my photography career, so I grabbed it with both hands and didn’t look back. In 2016, I officially launched Melanie Day Photography.

Melanie Day Photography is a boutique photography studio in Clyde North, Melbourne. I offer my clients a premium photography experience and professionally crafted products. My days are filled with capturing priceless photographs for many families throughout Melbourne…and nothing brings me greater joy.

Melanie is an AIPP Accredited photographer specialising in newborn, family and baby photography. Accredited photographers are trained, educated and skilled to run a professional business and are bound by a code of ethics.


Why Book Melbourne Family Photography?

Our babies grow so fast and those first few months are a blur of nappies and teething, of sleepless nights and restless days. So, it’s easy to forget to capture those first milestones. The first smiles, the first giggle, the cuddles, the love, and the connection you share with your babies. I dedicate my photography sessions to capturing all your family’s most precious moments and creating timeless artwork to display throughout your home.

Heart warming words from happy clients

I had such a great experience with Melanie. She has a lovely calm vibe and knew exactly how to keep my newborn settled and relaxed throughout the shoot. I absolutely love the photos and am thankful Melanie was recommended to me by my sister as she was so easy and wonderful to communicate with throughout the entire process. Will definitely use her services again in the future.
