Hi Everyone! I'm Melanie, owner of Grey Lily Photography.
Truth be told, writing about myself is not my strong suit. But I also think it's SUPER important to share a bit about who I am, so potential clients can connect with me on a personal level. Who knows, maybe you too love animals and scary movies!
First let me tell you a little bit about my business life. I have been a photographer for over 7 years. (10 if you count the years I only took photos of friends and my cats!) And I've been full time for almost 4 years now! I left my career as a hairstylist and makeup artist in 2016 to pursue photography full time and I have never regretted it for one minute! Photography is my true passion in life!
My style as a photographer is often described as moody and romantic. I love laid back couples and families who like to have fun in their sessions. Allowing me to capture those candid and real moments that make for some truly beautiful images.
On a personal note, as I mentioned I LOVE animals. I have a huge heart for rescue. And not just dogs and cats. Rescue all the animals in need, I say! I think if I won the lottery I'd have a farm with more animals on it than the city of Calgary has humans! Haha.
I love my husband and step son, our 2 kitties and the life we've made together. I love scary movies and true crime shows. I have an addiction to iced coffee and nachos. I love music from the 90's and 2000's the most but will listen (and dance) to almost anything!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this little "about me". If you're interested in booking a photography session with me, I'd love to hear from you!
