I'm just a girl trying to get through this life doing the very damn best I can! Besides being a full-time photographer and entrepreneur, I'm a wife, mommy of 2 little humans and 1 feline... Claire, Leonardo, and Beamer! 

I give my thanks to them because they are the ones who have pushed me into pursuing  this passion, for almost 7 years now!

Besides having my trusty Canon gear, I'm pretty awesome at getting kids to smile, making moms AND dads feel comfortable in front of the camera, crafting the perfect Italian espresso, snuggling on Sunday mornings, being master of breakfast, and oh yes....chasing golden-light! 

I grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan, but I've lived in many cities including: Kalamazoo, MI;  New Haven, CT; Paris, France; and Turin, Italy. Yet I've come back to where my soul belongs, Detroit! I shoot mainly in this area, but I'm frequently in Italy so I work there when visiting my in-laws.

Thanks for being here, really. If you've made to this part of the web I'm raising my glass and toasting with you...depending on the day could be a glass of red wine, a hot cup of soothing pomegranate green tea or soft parade...I don't discriminate my adult beverages and please let's make it happen in real life too! 

So let's chat...reach out, I want to be more than just be your photographer, I want to be your friend and tell your story!

hi friends !

I'm Michelle.
