Meet Us

“Think of all the beauty still left around you, and be happy.”
- Anne Frank

Hello, and thank you for visiting us, we are happy you are here.

I mostly shoot solo but have an awesome team of photographers that I love working with when I need a second pair of hands.

During your event, you want a photographer who will not only deliver gorgeous images … but one who will care about your experience from start to finish. We want to make people feel beautiful and it would be our privilege to capture your natural, joyful images.

People often ask me (Melissa) how I came up with the name ‘Left of The Middle’ well I am one of the lucky (?) 10% who is left-handed, who smudged my ink every day at school, and who could never quite get the hang of those right-handed can openers! Left of the middle is also a term in photography as often photographers will place their subject, ‘left or right of the middle’ instead of the subject in the middle of the picture.

We photograph everything from weddings, portraits, landscapes, events & fun. And together we have a real passion for working with each client making sure their session is one of a kind and exactly what you are looking for.

We can’t wait to meet you, tell your story and create joyful photos that feel like you!

We are conveniently based on Western Lake Macquarie, halfway between Newcastle and the Central Coast. But we love to travel and will follow your story wherever it leads.

Get in touch with us as soon as you know you need us – we often have a waiting list and don’t want you to miss out. 

Yes. We travel like there’s no tomorrow. But be quick, there’s a limited number of destination events that we take on. Travel fees will vary depending on location, time required etc… so… just email us with your plan & we’ll see what we can do!

Our style is natural/romantic/lifestyle; we are non intrusive, and live for real/natural moments with you and your family and friends. Hug your babies, kiss your spouse, dance with your best friend. There are no expectations other than to show up and be exactly who you are.

All your moments are important.
