Michelle fell in love with photography at a young age learning the art by following her dad around on family adventures and developing her film and images in the high school dark room.  It’s been a passion and fulfilling her creative soul ever since.  Michelle loves creating pictures that capture the essence and beauty, both inside and out, of the families that she photographs. She aims to create photographs that evoke a feeling and that you’ll always want to come back to, again and again.  

Her other passion is a love of the outdoors and conservation of fragile ecosystems in the urban environment. She can often be found searching for wild scenic beauty and supporting the local and national parks for future generations. A portion of all wildlife photography sales support the Yellowstone Foundation and Washington Parks Department.
