meet michele

See this to get session information!

I’m a self-taught photographer and I’ve had the honor of photographing hundreds of families all across Austin, Texas and all over the world for more than a decade!

Before we meet, you might like to know that:

  • I will most likely hug you when I see you. And when I leave.
  • I went to a technology-centered high school, but I actually wanted to be on Broadway.
  • This career is way better.
  • I have three children and an amazing husband who does EVERYTHING to keep this household running smoothly.
  • If it weren’t for my husband, I would probably starve.
  • You would probably beat me at poker. I do NOT have the ability to hide my emotions and it will be quite apparent at your session.
  • I may seem scatter-brained at times, but that’s only because there are too many ideas bouncing around in my head.
  • I use bullet points like they’re going out of style. They make me feel all neat and tidy.
  • I get really excited when I see beautiful light or a beautiful moment between people.
  • I’m fun-loving and jovial, but I like to get down to business when I’m on a mission.
  • I get emotionally tied to every session. I have to. I couldn’t do this otherwise.

I’ve done commercial photography for or have been published in:
