Hello, I'm Michaela! My passion is not just to take beautiful pictures, but to tell stories authentically with my images. As one of my clients, you won't be told to just stand there and smile for the camera. You also won't be meticulously posed and contorted in ways that feel uncomfortable. I instead give my clients prompts, guidance, and feedback to provoke real emotions and build their confidence. Explore my website to find out more about my packages!

    Michaela is SO nice and easy to work with. My photo party included a not entirely cooperative tiny human, and she was the best with her. Flexible, polite, patient and understanding. I sincerely appreciate it!

    My wife and I have done two seasons. One was our wedding and one was our fall photos. We both enjoyed working with Michaela. She is very friendly and very professional. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone

    Michaela’s work is truly amazing! We are already planning our next photo opportunity with her. Her flexibility with scheduling, her attention to detail, and her passion are what set her apart from the rest! Our friends and family are so impressed with our photos. Hands down my recommendation for anyone with a need for a photographer!

    Michaela is professional and amazing with kids! She did my daughter and nephews pictures and they are my absolute favorite. She captures the moments that are not always poses and it makes them so much better. I highly recommend her for any occasion. You won’t regret it.

    Anyone can take pictures. But only the truly talented can make it fun, relaxed and even make it feel a bit like a date because you and your family are having fun.

    Excellent pictures, I am overjoyed every time I see my my beautiful family captured and would gladly use again in the future!
