Wanted WOMEN 40 to 60+ to help raise funds for the MCGRATH FOUNDATION

In Australia, 1 in 7 women are diagnosed with Breast Cancer by the time they reach the age of 85.

And many of us will be touched by this devastating disease in some way – whether it be a sister, daughter, mother, best friend or simply knowing someone affected 

At Mel Watt Photography we’re on a “mission”. A mission to raise much needed funds for the McGrath Foundation who place specialist Breast Care Nurses around Australia. 

These AMAZING nurses provide invaluable physical, psychological and emotional support at a time when it’s needed the most. And as a nurse myself, this is close to my heart.

SO … I’m looking for women aged 40-60+ to create a “MOVEMENT”. 

A movement to give hope, courage and illuminate how brave, beautiful and resilient our bodies truly are. 

A movement of women taking a stand against feeling flawed and shame about our bodies. 

A movement to celebrate how perfectly imperfect we really are and the tenacity to be unapologetically YOU.

And I want YOU to be part of this Movement!

Book in for my “Women’s Empowering Portrait Experience” and $100 of your booking fee will be donated to the McGrath Foundation. Your $300 Booking Fee includes:


Total value $750.  ONLY $300 TO BOOK IN!

Here is a chance to do something special for you and support a worthy cause in the process.

About the McGrath Foundation

McGrath Foundation raises money to place specialist McGrath Breast Care Nurses wherever they’re needed, and make breast health understanding a priority. For more information about the Foundation, call 02 8962 6100.

The “Empowering Women Portrait Experience” is more than a photo shoot ... it's a celebration of the TRUE YOU, being present and taking time for you.

Yes, you are doing this for YOU! My mission is to show YOU ARE ENOUGH just as you are RIGHT NOW.

I see the female form as “art” no matter the shape or size.  There is no such thing as being photogenic, it is my job to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. This is when your real light shines.

You’ll feel like a model in the most fun and gentle way.  It is about embracing who you are, your inner beauty and building confidence. This will be a new world of feeling beautiful, proud and confident with no makeup.

The women you see on my gallery are not professional models, they are women just like you who are guided by me in every pose.  With my positive and comfortable space your nerves will just drop away. You don’t need to know how to pose or move in front of the camera, all you have to do is just turn up and leave the rest to me…I dare you.

“Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up” – Brené Brown

What Our Clients Say

What an AH-MAZING experience! Mel captured my personality beautifully. Every time I look at my photos I see a reflection of qualities I want to be reminded of on a daily basis – elegance, sophistication, courage and strength. Sometimes I think… is that really me? She is beautiful! These are photos I know I will be proud to be staring back at for years to come, and I’m so happy to have this captured in time. Mel’s ability to bring out inner beauty and physical beauty is next level and something I’m so grateful to have experienced. Her direction and skills are to be trusted and admired.
