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.
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.
I frequent the farmers markets here in the Valley, garden for fun (dirt therapy works for me) and strike up conversations with strangers wherever I go.
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.
I am passionate about prints as my love of photography started in a darkroom in my apartment bathroom. I value my family heirloom pictures that hang in my own hallway. They tell the story of my own legacy and family, people I want my daughter to know since we no longer have parents.
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,
