Love + Light

Mel Christina is an Austin, TX, based photographer, inspired by modern, authentic, and unscripted beauty.

“ Life is once. Forever. ”

 - HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON 

Hola! I’m Mel, a life-excited lover, mama, photographer based in Austin, Texas. My days are shared with my sweet family, our garden, and our pup, Inca. I’m all about hip hop music, crafts, gardening, bird watching, flowers, and collecting pretty dresses.
I believe life is truly beautiful and we should have documentation of our journey here- of the colors, moods, emotions, highs, lows, and all the wondrous shades of the in-between. This art encourages me to be in the Now, to find the everyday magic and treasure that is available to us all. 

Satchels of Love,



ABOUT the artist

Mel

I hope so! Let me share what may help you decide.

I love to document moments, not poses. I love to create art, not just pictures. I want to capture truth, NOT force moments. I want to show you the love you already feel inside. I want to show you how extraordinary the ordinary can be. How simple moments hold beauty. I aspire to create beauty, because I believe our lives are worth capturing, telling, feeling, remembering. My hope is that you’ll trust my passion for capturing authentic moments, my way. Plain and simple. If you are looking for a photographer that sees art in everyday moments, in the wind, in leaves, in sun flare, in eyes, laughter, storytelling - I’m your girl.
Lets’s tell your story! 

P.S. Recreating Pinterest poses with balloons, cake smashes, and chalkboards is not my thing. Keepin' it real. 

am I the right photographer for you?
