Your home is a sacred space to photograph your family and I feel truly honoured to be invited into my clients homes. Suitable for newborn and intimate maternity portraits. Sessions are scheduled in the morning ending no later than midday.

By the Sea

perth SOR

Another option for those wanting to be by the water and avoid the strong winds that often come with a beach session.
This spot tends to offer a little more shelter. Perfect for any portrait session, best light is on an overcast day.

Book by the sea



A wide open space, perfect for any portrait session. If you want variety in backgrounds then this is the location for you as there is so much to choose from here! The grasses change depending on time of month and throughout the year. During the cooler months the grasses are usually left uncut allowing for beautiful sun-lit grasses at dusk.

City Skies

perth central

What better place to mark a special moment in our city with those we love most.
A super convenient location, why not pack a picnic to enjoy a relaxed dinner afterwards and take in the view.

Book city skies


perth central

A central and convenient location offering dappled sunlight through the trees with long grasses in the background. Often quiet with little distraction for the kids. This location is a winner with young families right throughout the year. Sessions can also be scheduled a lot earlier in the afternoon than our other locations, my favourite light to photograph at the wetlands is around two hours prior to sunset.



perth central - march to septemeber

There is something so calming about hearing the crashing of waves and our stunning Perth beaches are my favourite place to photograph maternity and young families. I love the neutral tones and pastels we often get at sunset. It all makes for the dreamy light portraits Melissa Sprlyan Photography is known for. Perth beaches tend to have very strong winds over the warmer months which is why I prefer to photograph between March and September.
