Hello, my name is Michelle, yes a bit different than my business name which has one 'L'. Michele Michaels came about because my last name was so hard for people to pronounce and I live in Central California and can be caught carting my daughter to and from theater productions, walking our dog Mollee and sneaking in dinner dates with hubby.
Making you feel comfortable in front of the lens comes natural to me as I worked behind the chair as a hairstylist for 30 yrs. and am good at putting you at ease during your session.
I am passionate about prints as my love of photography started in a darkroom in my apartment bathroom. I value family heirloom pictures and treasure those old family images that hang in my own hallway. Those images tell the story of ones own legacy and family, people that you might want your kids to remember.
So when I am given the opportunity to photograph, my thoughts are not in the moment, but the value they will someday be to those that love you. The camera stops time in a way that is indescribable until those moments become memories. That's when memories become treasures.
I would be honored to capture those treasures for you,
