This is me, Melanie Cunningham playing with my 3 kids.

Hi! I’m Melanie Cunningham and I’m a patient and relaxed family photographer, located in the family friendly suburb of Ryde, but I work all over Sydney. I live in a lovely 4 bedroom house with my 3 kids and hubby.

My favourite things in the world are dark chocolate and sweet wine. Being honest now, I'll drink any wine offered!

When I’m not taking photographs or being mum, you’ll find me watching Netflix or playing soccer. I have played with the same awesome team for the last 15 years, but this year (2019) I’ll be changing it up to play with the local mums from my kids school.

I couldn’t live without my friends and family, my phone and my camera.

I spend a lot of time with my kids and nothing makes me happier than watching them play and have fun.

My love of photographing my kids is what got me into family photography. I'm new to calling myself a professional photographer, but it really is the best job ever. My photography style is relaxed and patient. I just love capturing all the silly and playful moments for my wonderful families, and the best thing about being a family photographer is that I get to meet loads of new people and capture beautiful memories.

You’re looking for a photographer who knows what it’s like to have kids, knows all about temper tantrums and can deal with them and will make the shoot fun and easy – and that’s what I do!

Your shoot is all about having a great time and getting beautiful photos of your family. Whether it’s a family shoot or a special occasion shoot, I promise you’ll enjoy yourselves and have those precious memories captured forever.

If this sounds like you, then get in touch to book your family shoot.
