Hello, I'm Michelle!

I am a lover of people. My husband often makes fun of me for making friends with strangers while waiting in line at the store or pretty much anywhere we visit. I enjoy making people laugh and really enjoy a good belly laugh myself! Life is tough, and it is too short to dwell on the negative things. I try to keep a positive outlook on life and find joy in the simple things. I believe there is always something to be thankful for….even in the tough situations…and believe me, I have been through some of those! Jesus is the Lord of my life and our household. He is intertwined in everything we do and has been our rock and stronghold during the crazy times and the good times. Everything He allows in our lives is for our good and His glory. He has blessed me with this gift of photography and I hope to bless others in return!

I hate coffee. Please don’t leave my page now! I am still cool, I promise!! I survive daily on grace and Spark (an energy drink).  My favorite place to shop is Nordstrom Rack and Homegoods.  You can find me regularly perusing the aisles of Target, and my all time favorite show is Friends!! If you quote Friends' lines on a consistent basis, it is more than likely that we could be best buds!

I crave genuine relationships and love to be open and honest with people. I am not a fan of perfect people….because there is no such thing. We are all broken and messed up….and that is where the magic happens. Through our brokenness we can grow learn together!

I hope that you can see my heart and my passion for people through my photography! I believe in building lasting, loving family legacies. Whether I am capturing your wedding day where that legacy begins or documenting your family as it grows, I put my heart and soul into my work. I strive to capture JOYFUL & GENUINE moments that you and your family will cherish for generations to come. I look forward to meeting you!!

My Family

I have been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 12 years. We have known each other half our lives and for some reason, he still loves me despite my craziness. We have been blessed with two beautiful boys. They have awesome hair like their mother and one of them even inherited my spunkiness. Dylan is 7 and is our miracle child. He was diagnosed with Leukemia at 8 weeks old and brought us on a adventure of faith and trusting in the Lord that has molded us into who we are today. He is a happy and adorable boy who lights up every room he walks into! You can read more about him on my blog! Andrew is Dylan’s little (BIG) brother. He is my mini me and challenges and blesses me every day! He is 4 going on 15 and is ready to conquer the world. My family is my life and my top priority! We love to go on new adventures and cuddle on the couch together. Our life is nowhere near perfect, and we are learning as we go, but we are so very thankful for everything the Lord has blessed us with!

 

I love sharing my family's adventures, see a glimpse into our favorites!

Photographing my children is how it all started!
