MY STYLE

My style is soft, natural and bright. I am drawn to soft light, organic textures, and neutral colour palettes.

My favourite images to capture are those with natural approach where you’re not looking at me; instead, you are looking at your babies and they are laughing, giggling, or looking back at you. I love honest emotion and my goal is to capture the intense connection and love between you and your babies.

During my sessions, I allow babies and children to take the lead. Aside from birthday sessions, I avoid the use of props and themes and all posing is natural and comfortable. It is important to me that your children are allowed to shine as they are, because they are perfect and that’s how I want to capture them.

If you’d like to inquire about scheduling a beautiful session for your PREGNANCY, NEWBORN, CHILDREN OR FAMILY please email me at dan@melgiovanni.com. I can’t wait to meet you!

I believe custom photography is one of the most beautiful and important gifts you can give to your babies. Growing up in a home where cameras were always present, there was always a family album or box of prints to look through, share, and giggle about. While the digital age has made it easier to store and view images online, it is these printed memories that I have always cherished the most, and it is these tangible prints that I know I will pass on to my own child.

Let’s book a session together and I’ll record the fleeting details of babyhood, the fun-filled adventures of childhood and, while we’re at it, some tender family moments as well. Consider how your babies will thank you for doing this for them: giving them the gift of images that show the intensity of your love for them. Images captured and printed beautifully, thoughtfully and professionally because you deserve that. And so do they.

Whether at your home, outdoors, or in my studio, the images we create will always focus on joy, love and connection. By keeping to organic tones, natural posing and soft light, your images will not only be beautiful but will also stand the test of time. My product line consists of a carefully curated selection of archival frames, albums and image boxes. Combined with fine art prints, these can become part of your family heirlooms and will last generations.

From the moment we begin planning our session together to the moment I deliver your finished products, all the details will be taken care of to ensure a relaxed, professional, and memorable experience. I can’t wait to help you start building a beautiful visual legacy for your family.

If you want to know more about me, please look through my portfolio – the images you see there are a reflection of what’s in my heart and how I see the world.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you soon.

NEWBORN INFO

It is such a great honour to be asked to create images of a baby’s first moments with their family and it is because of this that newborns are always prioritized on my calendar. Here are some frequently asked questions to help you in planning for your newborn session:

1. When is the best time to book a newborn session?
The ideal time frame for newborn portraiture is within the first month of life. Newborn sessions take place on weekday mornings and book up very quickly. I take on a limited number per month to ensure my clients have flexibility in dates and to minimize turnaround times for edited galleries. It is recommended to book at least 3 to 4 months in advance of your due date. If you have recently had your baby, don’t worry, you’re not too late! Please contact me as soon as possible and I can usually schedule you in.

2. What if my baby comes early or late?
I always leave a certain number of mornings free each month to accommodate changes in timing. Babies almost never come when they’re “supposed to”! I’ll be in touch close to your due date to check up on timing.

3. Do I have to wear anything special or buy outfits and/or props for my baby?
Once you have a spot on my calendar, I will send you a full guide on how to prepare for your session, including clothing recommendations for the whole family.

4. We just had our session and it was fabulous. How long will it take to be able to see my full gallery?
Because all images in client galleries are fully retouched and edited to showcase the images at their best, the average turnaround time from session to online gallery is about 1-2 weeks.

5. Can you come take photos in my home?
Of course! In-home sessions are more relaxed and I love being able to create authentic images of baby in her “natural environment”! We’ll most likely focus on areas of your home that have larger windows and soft, natural light. Capture images at your home is recommended but not essential.
