I feel incredibly privileged to be able to photograph this beautiful specimen. I first met Mel when she was 8 or so, and she was my little brother's girlfriend (I know haha) but they were adorable!
Years later after my brother passed away I asked Mel to help me explore a photographic project about my brother which she graciously did, and I have not been able to stop photographing her since! It's an amazing thing to watch her grow into a beautiful and intelligent woman before my eyes. Thanks Mel! P.S I'm sure I'll be back for more XX
