Tell us about your work: 

I am a natural light photographer specializing in Maternity, Newborn, Babies & Milestones. I want to turn your memories into art that you can cherish forever. 

 How did you get into this line of work? 

I have always had a love for the arts. My grandfather was an animator for Disney, my father loved water color and I can't remember a time when my mom did not have a camera around her neck. But it wasn't until my my second son had to have open heart surgery that I discovered my hidden talents. I stopped working to care for him and to give birth to my third boy. At the time I had a little point and shoot camera and wanted to document every single amazing {and sometimes not so amazing} thing that my children got up to. On Christmas 2010 my husband gave me my first DSLR camera. And the rest is history!

What locations do you service? 

Tampa/Wesley Chapel and surrounding areas. 

How do your services help families? 

I will never forget being pregnant with my first child and EVERYONE telling me to "cherish the moments" because they go by quickly. I would politely nod and carry on with the conversation. I never really got it until I was walking my son into his VPK class... Where had all the years gone? In a blink of an eye he was four years old! I found myself scrambling for photos to help me remember all of those milestones. It helped me breathe easy knowing that I could look back on those moments whenever I wanted to. I want to give this peace to you!  I capture your memories and bottle them up so you can remember that special moment in your life at any time.

 How do your clients feel about your work? 

I received this message from a current client:

"Hi Michelle! 
As I was leaving from Gavin's open house last night I grabbed my phone to look at the time and I had quite a few text messages from friends telling me how cute the football picture of Jaxon was. I stopped in the middle of the hallway because that meant you posted a picture and I had to see it NOW. Well I had no internet connection in his school... so Gavin and I basically ran out of school to see the picture. Well... words can't even explain the emotion I had when I saw his picture. You did such an amazing job capturing these moments of him as a newborn and I'm so happy to have these pictures for a lifetime! Thank you so so so much!!!"

This is why I love my job! Knowing that I can give my clients the memory of that special milestone in their family's life.
