I haven't met many photographers that really have an "artistic eye". Most just take a lot of pictures and with luck a few come out OK. MIchele, however, seems to have that special eye that brings out the real personatlity of her subjects and that captures the emotion of the moment. With me it was not a special occasion like a wedding or graduation or child's birthday, but still she somehow coaxed real smiles out of my stony visage and produced portraits of the "real me" (according to my spouse and friends). In going through her wedding pictures, both on her website at www.turningleafweddings.com and the portfolio books in her studio I saw again her talent for finding not only the beauty of the moment, but also the emotion.I cannot recommendl her highly enough!!
