Mélanie Winter – Mexico

My name is Mélanie Winter, mother of 2 beautiful children.
I grew up in Guadeloupe, a gorgeous Caribbean island which I left after my graduation to study fashion in Paris.
Like many people, I was a bit lost in my life without really having any desire and particular passion.
Fortuitously by holding a fashion blog, I started my passion for photography. It was at my son’s birth and the first pregnancies of my friends that my taste for maternity and newborn photography has settled. It never let me go!
Coming back to my home town, photography has become a piece of evidence, a passion, and an obsession in my life. Therefore, I am grateful to live all this.
Having your baby growing inside you is the most beautiful thing in the world, so my goal is to transcribe it into images and to keep these memories forever.
