I'll be brief. I definitely won't whip out those tired, over-used phrases like "capture the emotion". 

Because.

You can clearly see that in my work.

So...from me to you, here's me, in a nutshell...

I'm an emotional creature. I've raised two sons. One Soldier and one Airline Pilot. Obviously I have nerves of steel.

My life and career have transformed me into a person who lives for the gravity of connections. And whether I'm photographing a wedding, infant, fashion model, furry friend, rap star, family, or toddler, I come heavily equipped with my fullest creative self...

And likely a hazelnut coffee. 

My faith is deep. 

My love for dogs might be deeper. 

My mission: record it - whether candid or directed - in 1/60th of second or less. I promise, I'll beat any selfie hands-down.

If you feel interested, I'd truly love to hear from you.


HEY. I'M MICHELE.

i PROMISE, i WON'T BORE YOu.

HOW IT'S DONE

First - we design the session. Usually, that happens during a conversation where we decide if I can meet or exceed your needs and determine if we're a match. For instance, if you're looking for portraiture cluttered with props and an overflowing set, I'm probably not your girl. I produce clean portraits, with minimal, complimentary props. The subject of the photograph needs to be the subject, not the "stuff". If you're just not sure how to go about this, it's okay. I'm happy to guide you through proper styling for any session or event.

Second - we set the date. It turns from pencil to pen upon receipt of your deposit. The amount will vary depending on the session. Once the session's over, we'll set a date for your reveal appointment. Long distance? That's okay. We'll use online proofing, Skype, or Google Hangout.

Third - we relax & enjoy the reveal. I'll help guide you through your selections for heirloom quality prints and products. We'll talk about crops, edits, and particulars. You'll truly be part of the process. Digital images are provided in certain packages only - such as weddings, corporate & commercial clients, or performance events. On request, I'm happy to provide digital social media images that correspond with images chosen for print.
