inspired by in-between moments

I am inspired by real life... the in-between moments that happen when people don't realize you're actually looking at them... the ones in-between the poses and the "say cheese" smiles... because THAT's when the truth is revealed. The REAL laughter that crinkles your nose and dimples your cheek. The way your body relaxes into itself, moves beautifully as it's meant to, and the tiny gestures all your own are revealed. And the way you still gaze at each other dreamily, fingers grazing a shoulder or cheek lovingly. It's all about the REAL you being revealed in a beautiful way.


Hey there... I'm Michelle... the person behind the camera.

In my spare time you'll find me wandering the local trails with my trusty sidekick Jasper (my mini-wienerdog), starting conversations with strangers, geeking out to the latest Marvel movie, and singing at the top of my lungs along with the car radio.  Because the motto I choose to live by is simply this: find joy every day.



I see you the way your loved ones see you; quirks and all. And we celebrate that uniqueness, together. HOW? By creating a FUN photo experience for all involved (cross my heart). Kids think I'm all kinds of cool. Parents think I'm a superhero of some kind. Modern entrepreneurs think I MUST be reading their minds. And the brides (+ even the grooms) think I must have magical powers of some sort. Because everyone walks away smiling... for real.

Yes, we'll be taking pictures. But by the end of it, I swear you'll forget I have the camera in my hand... cross my heart and pinkie promise. So, let's PLAY!

Words like this make my heart happy... because to me, it's so much more than simply capturing a pretty picture. It's about providing an EXPERIENCE to be remembered.
