Hi, I’m Mel!

I’m the enthusiastic photographer and graphic designer behind Rosemary Media. I’m powered by sunshine, coffee, and deep conversations.


Confession: I used to hate having my picture taken.

I was deeply uncomfortable with the whole process. I felt like I had to perform and posing felt awkward. Ugh, what do I do with my hands?!

Thankfully, portraits don’t have to be people standing in a row anymore. You can be yourself, have fun, and maybe even forget the camera is there! I want you to feel like your fabulous self.


I believe in equality and collaboration. That sessions should be fun, silly, and full of love. That a great photograph is worth getting dirty for.

I live for connection – I love hearing about what you love!

Let’s celebrate you.


As for design, I speak your language. My job is to help you translate what you want into something perfect for your needs. Don’t know what white space or leading mean? It’s all good. I’ve got you covered. We’ll work together to great something that fits your brand.

Make stuff and get excited!

I focus on photography and graphic design in my work, but I also love getting my hands on textile arts like knitting, embroidery, and sewing. (I’m multi-craftual!) I collect new skills like some people collect shoes or action figures.

I’m a maker at heart and I bring that passion into each project I work on.
