Michelle simmons of the suitcase studio - offering fun lifestyle photography experiences in bend oregon for kids and families, weddings and businesses

I'm Michelle, and I'll be your photographer this evening...

Kids think I'm all kinds of cool.
They think I'm a superhero of some kind.
Modern entrepreneurs think I MUST be reading their minds.
And the moms (+ even the dads) think I must have magical powers of some sort.
Because everyone walks away smiling... for REAL. 

“Not only does Michelle capture the moment, she is amazing to work with! Super fun personality and the candid moments captured are priceless. Michelle is a perfect blend of freedom + direction.”
