Hi, i'm Mel.

Creative lover, story seeker and possibly the most optimistic person you've ever met. I am based in Noosa, Sunshine Coast, capturing photos that spark joy and tell unique stories.

Smile with Mel was born out of a love for documenting and connecting with others. With a degree in Advertising and Marketing and over 10 years working in the industry, I decided to dive deeper into my love for visual media. Honing my skills I studied in Australia and Canada, and developed my own creative style.

For me it’s all about capturing the little moments in-between, making whoever is front of my lens feel comfortable, and leaving you or your business with something you can look back on in years to come and still feel excited about.⠀

I truly believe we look our best when we are just being ourselves and I strive to make anyone in front of the camera feel comfortable enough for that to happen!

Whether it’s content for your business social channels or website, a video highlighting an incredible event your running, or those big beautiful life moments - I’m here and ready to capture it for you!



Mel is an absolute delight! She is friendly, efficient and passionate about her work. The service we received was incredibly seamless, she was engaged and enthusiastic every step of the way.
