 My style is based on capturing authentic candid emotions and natural moments. Sessions are laid back, fun, and storytelling.

about michelle

Hello! I am Michelle.   Born and raised on the North Shore of MA and what can I say... I LOVE New England. The people, the landscapes, the seasons, and the community.  I specialize in family and couples storytelling photography. 

I love to capture authentic and candid moments that are full of love, heart and soul.

A common question I get asked all the time is "what should I wear?!"  I have created a what to wear guide.  The most important thing to remember is to be comfortable and be yourself!  Neutral, earth tones always photograph beautifully.  Avoid major prints and logos.  You want to have a cohesive look, not a matchy matchy look.  

I suggest picking out one favorite outfit first, and build everyone else's around that! Pinterest and Instagram are great for inspiration! Feel free to run ideas by me. That's what I am here for.

Family Session

- You choose the location and date! I of course will help you narrow this down. I have a lot of great recommendations, but i am ALWAYS up for a new location.
-Sessions are 30 minutes, my style is very relaxed, so having extra time allows us to go at your family's pace, stop for breaks and get a much wider variety of shots.
-You will receive around 30 high-resolution images, sent in an online gallery
-This session is a great choice if you are looking to update your family photos with a wide variety of shots. From the whole family,  to individual shots,  children only, mommy & me, and more.

Branding

- A personal branding shoot is for small business, entrepreneurs, and influencers that are looking to elevate their online presence and image. 
-This Session will equip you with a cohesive and consistent images that convey your brand.
Sessions are completely customized for each business and will show off your unique personality and style. 
- The focus is on you and your goals. Most sessions are a mixture of headshots, lifestyle images that show your personality, your workspace or "office", your creative process, images of your working, tools and props that you use in your business for a flat lay, and products you may sell.
-I will help you select a location. depending on season and the look you are trying to achieve outdoors is almost always client's go-to. If we are choosing indoors, I recommend one that is bright, full of natural light, and neutral walls.  If you do not have an indoor space you can rent an AirBnB, local photography studio, a show room home, or use a friend/family members home.
-Average Session is 1-2 hours.
