MY STORY

About

MEeT
MICHELLE

Photography played an important role in my childhood. Growing up as the daughter of a professional photographer,  I had my childhood documented through candids and portraits. I vividly remember Sunday afternoons, sitting on the living floor, flipping through our family photo albums and looking at my parents' wedding album. I fell in love with the printed image and the stories it told. Today, I couldn’t tell you the last 20 photos I took on my phone, but I still know the exact location of my favorite images in those photo albums. 

I consider it the utmost privilege to be able to tell these important stories for my clients and preserve their family’s legacy.

"I don't see myself as just a photographer. I'm a historian, and I get the privilege of telling so many wonderfully important stories."

I'm a wanderluster and adventurer who feels most alive with hiking boots on my feet, a camera in my hand, and a path to anywhere stretching out for miles in front of me.

I'm a Midwest girl at heart who will never turn down the chance for good live music, an exceptional craft beer and quality cheese, preferably from my home state of Wisconsin.

I am wife to my best friend, Brian, and a professional puppy snuggler to our lovable Shiba Inus, Kody and Nala.

I am a chaser of authentic moments and beautiful light.
