Hey there, it’s so great to meet you.

Hello there, I’m Michelle. I live in Melissa, TX with my husband of 22 years, my 2 boys (16 & 14 – teen boys, aren’t they fun!?) of which I home school. Born and raised in Sunny Southern California. I’ve been a professional photographer for 12+ years photographing lots of fabulous people. My favorite color is Turquoise (not the jewelry color) and I would never say no to a Sushi lunch date! I don’t have a fave sports team so whoever you’re routing for, I’ll be happy to cheer with you. Sunday is my favorite day of the week. I enjoy curling up on the couch with my family catching up on all our shows. I still watch Disney movies and have seen every High School Musical, Bring it On and Step Up. Need a friend to laugh, cry and eat with, I’m your girl!!  I love movies, musicals mostly and anything that has a good beat to it. The crazy mom dancing in the car with her kids you see on the road..yah that’s me!!

Being a dance photographer is something I’m extremely passionate about. I’ve spent my whole life loving anything and everything about the dance world.  Like many young girls who dream of being a ballerina, I was unable to follow that dream.  Something told me that one day I would somehow be entwined in the dance world.  The beauty and elegance that comes from capturing the essence of what a dancer truly is has become my focus. I believe that motion can be stopped and given the chance to be adored.  That is my plan, that is my vision, that is my passion.  

Thanks for stopping by and checking things out. Feel free to “say hello” and send me a message any way you’d like.

Blessings,
