My name is Michelle, I am a 40 year old wife and mother of 2 boys. At a very young age I appreciated the lens perspective and had the ability to photograph others in a way that I would want to be photographed.
About the Artist - Photographer
I started shooting boudoir as a way to raise money for Relay for Life. I loved taking these pictures, I loved the fact that when the women left the shoot, they KNEW they looked AMAZING! There is nothing more gratifying than handing someone a photo of them-self that makes them feel good. I am proud to say that I have raised close to $10,000.00 for cancer charities to date, and continue to donate my time photographing women who have undergone mastectomies.
My favorite thing about boudoir photography is watching the women who walk into my studio transform. I photograph women of all shapes and sizes, most are not models and have never bared skin in front of a professional photographer. These women are mothers, wives or newly engaged. They are flawed and insecure, most of the time forgetting how beautiful they are! Once they see themselves through my lens, they find the session was more for them then the person originally intended! And best of all, they had FUN!
Here's where I am supposed to boast about how awesome I am(..this is my least favorite part, as a photographer I like the focus on other people). So, here it goes.. I have been professionally trained and mentored by the boudoir industries most talented and sought-after photographers. I am an expert portrait retoucher. I have photographed over 600 women since starting my business in 2012-all having different professions, ages, ethnicities and body types. I have won several photography awards, been published, and taught my fellow photographers how to create powerful boudoir images using movement and emotion through the professional photographers association. When it comes to the business I have created, I look at myself as an artist first, and a photographer second.
Allow me to show you how beautiful you are! Come in, get pampered, have some wine, listen to your favorite music and I'll capture your awesomeness!!
