General Info:

I have always had a passion for photography. I asked for my first camera the christmas I was 6. my mom wouldnt give me one because, it was expensive to develop the film.  So, for my 7th birthday I bought myself one with the birthday money I received. It was a hot pink camera that took 35mm film. She was right, it was expensive to buy & develop film. however, I loved how it made me feel to say that I created something.  I paid for all of my film & developing, and, it was worth it. I took my first photography class as a sophomore in high school and decided to major in it in college.

Plans changed half way through college and I got married and had a baby. His name is James. He, to my knowledge, or my biased opinion, was.the.cutest.child.in.the.world. I was very diligent in getting his milestone pictures from JC penny  every 3 months. It sufficed. Kind of. He was an easy baby to take pictures of. I had another son when james was just 15 months old who was equally as adorable. we agreed upon the name of spencer.

When spencer was 6 months old, I felt a void in my life. I needed something to do for myself. I needed an outlet from being a mom. I bought myself a camera, and a website template and started creating my photography business. Five hours later,  my most beautiful sweet baby James flew home to heaven due to a tragic accident. There is not a chance that photography came to me, at my darkest time. It truly, became what I was hoping it would be, my outlet, but not an outlet from my kids, an outlet for my grief.

Prior to april 20th, 2006, I was quite a happy individual. Easily appeased. Easily smiling, much like my oldest son. From that day, I found one of the only things that made me  see the sunshine in my rainstorm was you, my clients, you lovely people who invite me to share your memories with you. Photography was a gift given to me, to get me through losing him. Photography, is James gift to me. When I share it, I share him. I give to you, what I wish I could go back and give to myself; the mischevious looks, the innocent looks, the smiling, the running, the dancing, the hugging, the loving, the real.down.to.earth true love a family shares. We have pictures of our precious James, for them I am grateful.  But to say that i wish I had more, would be an understatement. To say that I wish I had hundreds of his true personality rather than just a smiling kid at the camera is a desire in my heart I will never be able to fulfill. While, most people dont lose their child to death like I did, everyone will lose their child to time. Everyone. These images, these memories, are far more valuable than you will ever dream. Memories are one thing in life that will appreciate exponentially with time. Invest in your memories, it is the best investment you will ever make for yourself, your children and grandchildren.

This is why i love my job, this is why i do it.

Overall
Local photographer

I had my family pictures taken by Michelle and she really knows what she is doing. She does amazing work and we were very pleased with the pictures. She was very patient with my little kids even when they were being difficult.

Overall

I had a session with Michelle for professional reasons related to my music. The session was extremely fun, and the pictures turned out to be not only great for my work, but also some of mine and my kid's favorite personal pictures as well. I would highly recommend working with Michelle!
