The WHO I AM Project
(for tweens + teens ages 10-16)

As a parent, I'm sure you struggle watching your tween/teen live through some stuff that you wish you could magically make better. I want to do what I can to help ease your pain + help build tween self-esteem. Qualifying participants in the WHO I AM Project will receive a FREE photo session, as well as $50 credit towards the purchase of a package (That's $149 in value, for FREE).

But this is sooooo much MORE than just a photo shoot... positive words from family + friends are (secretly) combined with the photos to create a one-of-a-kind experience... 

The Suitcase Studio is bringing FUN family photography to the Dallas and Southlake, Texas area on May 19 + 20


Get ready for the most FUN and stress-free family photo experience EVER! Because my photo sessions are actually FUN... with less posing and more PLAY! 

We'll come up with a Pandora playlist (because music makes everything better), play a few games with the kids, and I'll give your family lots of things to DO... so that instead of forced smiles and awkward poses, your genuine love and affection SHINES THROUGH. Yes, I'll be posing you a little bit along the way to make sure we get some classic shots you'll love. But I promise that you'll love the results... and even pinkie promise to SHOW you the back of my camera during the session so you can immediately SEE just how awesome your family really is!

About The Photographer...

Michelle Simmons is the photographer behind The Suitcase Studio, offering fun lifestyle photography services for kids + family. She's traveling to Southlake/Dallas, Texas on May 19 + 20

Hey there! I'm Michelle... the one behind the camera.

Sooo... why book an experience with ME? Because I'm more than just a photographer.

With my degree in psychology and years spent working in children's group homes + art camps, I've learned to instantly connect with a range of personalities and work with all sorts of moodsI work hard so that you don't have to... creating the most stress-free and FUN experience from start to finish, including session planning, how to get the entire family excited, and even tips on what to DO with your photos AFTER you have them.

Long story shortThe camera has been an extension of my hand for most of my life, and I've been running The Suitcase Studio for nearly 10 years now... providing FUN + stress-free photo experiences for the adventurous, authentic and AWESOME.

And I still use my psychology training and insight on each + every photo shoot as I calm the nerves of parents, maneuver kids out of meltdown mode, and help everyone connect in the most genuine of ways.

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