Melodi Photography » Family Newborn Baby Children and Senior Portrait Photography in Bakersfield--California : Melodi-Photography

The Photographer


Hi there,  I’m İpek (Pronounced as e-pak). I’m a wife to a wonderful husband and a mom to two amazing children.

What began as a passion to learn and create lasting memories of my own daughter exploded into my business – Melodi Photography. Bright, colorful and happy photographs make my heart sing. I strive to capture a child’s spirit and a family’s personality. My clients can find themselves giggling, tickling and jumping during my sessions. And in my newborn sessions, I LOVE using props that POP.

Some random facts about me:

  • I was born and raised in Turkey and I’ve been living in the U.S since 2007.
  • If I’m not chasing out sunsets, I’m most definitely chasing my kids.
  • I have a Master’s degree in Education (that I earned in the University of Oklahoma), but pursued my real passion obviously :)

By the way, you may wonder why my business name is called Melodi Photography. It’s because of my daughter whose name is Melodi. Her big blue eyes has always fueled my inspiration in photography. (You can see lots of photos of her on the blog).

Thank you so much for taking the time to meet me. Please check out my portfolio and blog to see the photographs of my beautiful clients. If you like my style, go ahead and contact me, I would be so honored to discuss how I could capture you and your loved ones in your best.
