Hey there! I'm Michale(pronounced like the guy's name michael). I am the girl behind the camera (although for a hot second down there; I was in front of the camera). I have always been a relationship kinda girl; and that is what I continue to do; build relationships. along the way i get to capture some pretty kick ass images too!

My clients laugh out loud, dance like no one is watching and aren't afraid to stand-out in a crowd

She knows how to make you feel comfortable and have fun while lifting you up with her comments! The laughter and uplifting sport this beautiful soul has is amazing! I absolutely love that I was able to do a boudoir shoot with her to show myself and other woman out their that it’s not about being a size zero but just loving yourself.. being confident and being happy in your own skin. I have worked hard to be confident in my own skin after two babies and she helped me find that everlasting love for myself. 
I highly recommend her and take the leap of faith to do a shoot with her. You will not regret it but only fall more in love with yourself! A boudoir shoot doesn’t have to be for someone special.. do it for you. As a reminder that you are strong and beautiful! 

I had the most amazing unforgettable experience with Michale.. her talent is a blessing to this world. She showed me how to be confident in myself and how to fall in love with myself all over again.
