Hi, i'm melissa

owner & professional photographer

Melissa Sprlyan Photography was established in Spring 2017...

Born in New Zealand, raised here in Perth, Australia, I'm a Mum of two boys with a passion for photographing motherhood stories. The experience I've created is very personal to me, I put everything into the portraits I create. I care for and guide my clients through every detail of the portrait making process to create a stress-free experience. My clients value my expertise, attention to detail and professionalism.

When I'm not photographing clients I'm with my family and friends, they are my everything. I live in Nedlands with my two boys and our kitty named Tux. I understand the love and deep connection a Mother has for her children, the importance of a Mother being IN photos both for herself and for her children. This is where my passion for serving busy Perth families began and why I continue to do what I do.

A little more about me…

  • I adore vintage tea sets
  • I love cooking for my family
  • I'm scared of the dark
  • My favourite flowers are tulips
  • I'm excited to explore astrophotography as a personal project

Thank you for considering me to tell your motherhood story, I look forward to photographing you soon!

love notes


“We signed up for a membership with Melissa about 6 months ago and have had one Portrait Session so far. I have been very happy with everything: customer service, communication and the quality of our images! We used a maternity dress and top for my son from her client wardrobe and it was so easy and convenient. Looking forward to our next few sessions with Melissa!”
