Hi, it's me!

The woman behind the lens and this fun hustle of a photography business I started in February 2021. I’m Melissa Gagnon (Gagnon is my married name and if you can’t pronounce it, that’s okay - neither can I)!

I am a wife, a mama and photography is my full time profession. Becoming a mother has inspired me to pick up my camera and to take the leap into doing what I love for myself, but also for my family.

I was born and raised in Halifax where I currently live. I am a morning person, a coffee drinker, I wear my heart on my sleeve and try not to take myself too seriously.

For me, 2023 has been all about new perspectives, bolder styles and shoots, growing more creatively as a photographer and expanding my business.

I cannot wait to show you what wild ideas I have up my sleeve for 2024.

Follow along for the fun!

Warmth & Kindness,




“Melissa was our photographer for our wedding and engagement shoot. She exceeded all our expectations and made my very camera shy husband feel so comfortable. She kept up with the chaos of the day without hesitation and every guest (as well as us) loved her and her approach. We could not be more thrilled with her photos and her contribution to a very memorable day for us. Highly recommend to anyone looking for easy going, genuine photos.”
