My latest newborn safety post got me thinking about something. A lot of bad photographers film themselves working, not necessarily to teach but for behind the scenes stuff. It’s terrifying that many of them do teach their unsafe methods. We can always see the wrong way to do things, but what about something like this […]

I mean really be real with you about something that is important to me. Photography itself aside because you all know how much I love what I do.

This year has definitely been one for the history books, for everyone. I don’t think there has been someone not affected in some way and small business owners most definitely are feeling the struggle, especially for photography. Being a newborn and child photographer working mainly in my home studio which is small so not a […]

Welcome to Little and Sweet Photography, formerly Xposures By Melony! Photographer in Lethbridge and surrounding area, based out of Coaldale. This has been nearly a year long process since I started and the last but most difficult part was a name. Initially I had a hard time letting go of Xposures By Melony since it’s […]
