"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."     - Aaron Siskind
I'm Michelle! 
My passion for photography started during my teen years, when my friends and I would grab a roll of FILM (gasp!) and head out to take silly pictures.  In college, I had the privilege of using my dad's 35mm Minolta from the 1970s for many of my photography classes. I am very sentimental and have been called an "old soul" on more than one occasion.  No matter what age or what camera I'm using, I have always loved the way photographs freeze a moment in time and tell stories that remind us of little details that we otherwise would have forgotten.
As an aunt and an "auntie" to seven little ones, I know how fast time flies, particularly when you have a newborn.  When you hire me, you're not just getting a photographer; you're gaining a partner in documenting the love, joy, (and the wildness!) that your kiddos bring into your life.
You may have noticed that my style is more candid, less posed, and I am not one to use lots of trendy props. I love to capture timeless, natural images showing the love and connection between family members.  
The most common feedback I receive as a family and newborn photographer is that I'm laidback and extremely patient. Not one to rush, I take the utmost care to ensure that your little one is at ease throughout the session. Whether it's swaddling your baby in a cozy blanket or gently posing them, I prioritize their comfort and well-being above all. Also I'm totally willing to be awkward and embarrass myself to get smiles out of your kiddos during family sessions! :)
Once you book your session with me, you will receive a short questionnaire to help me learn more about you and your specific needs.  I'm so excited to meet your family. Let's capture some beautiful memories together!
