Hi my name is Melanie Powers. I'm a professional and passionate photographer with over a decade of lifestyle photography experience.
Photography captured my attention at the age of 11 when my father gave me my first film camera. Call it nostalgia. Photography reminds me of my family and how important it is to cherish those times. Realizing that at a young age, I taught myself to photograph my family and friends. Imagine an adolescent version of me with my besties playing photo shoot using mismatched bed sheets as a backdrop. Since then, I’ve been inspired to photograph children at play, family togetherness, and love stories between two. To date, I've captured hundreds of lifestyle photo shoots. My photos have appeared on Modern Living San Diego, Rancho Santa Fe Review, and The SDVoyager.
I feel lucky to capture special moments and to meet wonderful people during my photography journey. Nothing makes me more happy to know that the photo I captured is hanging on a wall, showcased on a desk, used as a social media profile image, and featured on a website.
I lived in San Diego since I was a little nugget and know of all the beautiful San Diego photo opp spots. If given the opportunity, I’d love to show off my beautiful city and create memories for you.
