I'm Melyn, a very passionate professional photographer based in Aruba, specializing in family, maternity, couples and kids portraits using the magic of natural light.
About 10 years ago I decided to turn my Photography hobby into my part time job.
After my beautiful son Charles was born I decided to leave my career in sales and customer service behind and make this my now full time job, and I love it!! Well, still part time since I'm also a stay at home mommy of now 2 adorable little boys.
It's been 2 years and it's the best decision I've ever made.
I've always been interested in art and always tried to occupy myself with being creative. I even spent a year in art school, but I always kept coming back to photography.
Having my camera in my hands makes me happy.
Getting that great shot makes me giggle and sometimes gets me jumping like a little kid.
I love meeting new people everyday, fresh new babies, mommies to be, first time visitors, honeymooners and fun families.
I love, love, looove my beautiful island of Aruba (the One happy Island!), I love living here and I feel proud to show it off to anyone who would let me
So you can call me a photographer mom, an Island girl, an art enthusiast, a bit of a crazy person or whatever you'd like, but ultimately I'm a person with a camera very eager to capture you, your family, your newborn or your kids on film in a special and unique way.
I want to tell your story,
Preserve your special moments
And capture your beauty.
