Hi, I am Melody. Aido is a combination from my 2 lovely girls’ name, because of them I fell in love with photography. I am a mother and also a storyteller who is great at capturing the shining moments of life in a smooth and natural way. My work describes the overflowing love between lovers, the excitement of anticipation for new life, the purity and tenderness of children. I am great at photography in all sorts of surroundings whether it is at Aido studio, at the beach, in the woods or in the comfort of your own home, I am able to capture the true self of the individual through my unique views and angles

    positive review  Great experience with Aido photography! Mel, the photographed, was very experienced, kind and patient with my bub. She spent a long time to calm him down, and made the little one cooperative! Strongly recommended !
