Photography isn’t just about the smiles... it’s about the documenting the story of your life right now, as it is - the laughs & even the tears -  so that when you look back on these images you are transported back to those moments - back to the way your baby's tiny fingers felt as they wrapped around yours, to the belly laughs that would erupt from the family tickle fest or maybe it's simply the way your husband looks at you amongst all the chaos & the noise ...he looks at you and there it is - what started it all.  

Change happens, and it’s important to let yourself bloom & enjoy the seasons of love as they come, but don’t forget where it all started and each little stage of growth. Celebrate life now, and in every day moving forward.

I create art that can transport you back to those moments, those feelings, and the best time we’re going to have together!

We keep this love in a photograph...

But I'm a mom to teens so I'm called bruh more often than anything else.

I am a HOT MESS, a single mama of three (freaking awesome) kids, living our best life here in Oregon (drinking all the coffee & waiting for the sun to shine).

Hi ! I'm  Michelle

more about me

Your children experience countless changes over these years. They lose baby teeth, they grow taller, their tastes change ...maybe they had a favorite lovey last year and now this year it's gone and now there's braces or glasses!! Haircuts, squishy fingers, silliness, quirks & special interests... What has changed with your family? What do you want to remember before it's gone? We talk about the "firsts" all the time but we never know when it's the last time they're going to mispronounce that word or squish our face when they kiss us or play with our hair when being comforted.  

 I know you've been wanting to have photos taken...but there's just always a reason for it to get pushed aside, right? Maybe it's money, weight...heck it's life in general! You're busy and just trying to keep it together sometimes! I see you, mama!! But there’s just no getting those years back, no capturing those little details of who they were right then, at that age. Take the photos, freeze time, capture and cherish it all. All the details, all the love, the snuggles, the laughter and alllll the twirling and bear hugs with your babies.

Michelle is an exceptional artist with a gift for highlighting the unique beauty in all of us. It is almost like an expression of her deeply kind personality, that sees good in everyone she meets. She has been my go-to photographer for personal and professional photos for decades! I know with her the product will be incredible and the process will be relaxing and fun. I have recommended her to so many people, and seen her amazing senior photos, newborn stills, family pics, head shots and more. I couldn't be more grateful to Michelle!

She is so pleasant to work with and makes each session fun! She’s especially great with kids and somehow manages to take all the best shots even when they’re not cooperating. We’ll definitely use her for all of our photography needs!

Michelle is one of those crazy talented artists that can take any situation and find the beauty in it. She has been our family’s go-to photographer for years.

It was such a fun time working with Michelle! She encouraged our family to be silly and playful, which made the experience so much more relaxing and fun!

I did a Boudoir shoot with Michelle and I cannot stress enough how much FUN I had. She picked an excellent location for us and I felt so empowered and comfortable the entire duration of our shoot. She also maintained proper communication before and after the shoot as well, which I really appreciated. It was honestly like I was with a dear friend throughout the session because I couldn't stop smiling. She has an acute attention for detail and is very patient. I can't reccomend her enough. If I could give her 7 stars, I would. Will definately be designating her as my forever photographer.

I was looking for fun & unique family pictures… I wanted a bit of magic! My pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined.

Michelle’s photos are magical. I choose her time after time, as she has such a unique eye for her subjects. Be it humans, animals, or objects, she has a gift with capturing the moment.

We looovvee Michelle 💕 She photographed our wedding as well as an outdoor session at Tualatin River Wildlife Refuge. Our pictures came out amazing, we still can’t decide which one to have printed out large because we love so many of them! Michelle is great with guests and family, keeps it light and fun so everyone stayed engaged and happy. She’s great at helping people like me (who don’t know what to do with their face or body 😂) by giving amazing direction and laughing along with the bloopers. Can’t speak highly enough of her, she’s just an amazing photographer and a super sweet and funny person! 10 out of 10 would hire again for any photo sessions we do in the future!

- Danielle  P.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful my experience with Michelle was! I had a very random vision, and she brought it to life and I had so much fun the ENTIRE shoot. She made me feel so comfortable and good about myself - and the photos turned out AMAZING!!
