Process

- Natalie + Matt -

In the images Michele captured, I don't see stiff. i don't see posed. I don't see just faces that I recognize in an unfamiliar, disingenuous circumstance like I've seen so much before. I see the way we interact. The way we smile when we're genuinely happy.
The way we love. I see US.

- Sharalee -

"Michele is amazing!
she will put her whole heart into it. If you aren't sure of a place you want to take your pictures she will go scouting for it."

- Natalie -

michele felt like an old friend even though we had never met before. she took extra time to get to know us before our shoot and get a sense of who we are, I really enjoyed the comfortable time we had taking pictures, and I think most of that had to do with who Michele is as a person. 

kind words

The first 3 rules of photography: Location. Location. Location.  I have several favorites and even a few 'secret' spots, but most importantly I'm committed to finding the right location for YOU. In our 'heart to heart' we'll talk specifically about locations and where you would like to go, and I'll be more than happy to share my professional opinion

QUESTION 3 // WHERE WILL my session TAKE PLACE? any suggestions?

Most photo sessions take about 60 minutes. We want to keep you as happy and looking fresh as possible during our time together. Sessions much longer than that can be a little exhausting.

QUESTION 2 // HOW Long is each photo session?

It's a phone or video call before your session. I want to talk to you in person. I have found when we talk together before the shoot, it relaxes all of us a little bit more, and the best photos are always taken when everyone is a little more in their element.
