oh hey…

Hi friends, thanks for stopping by! i am a chicago-based, natural-light child & family photographer serving chicago (chicago's north shore & chicago's western/southwestern suburbs) and new buffalo/michigan city/grand beach. basically, if i can be kid-free in the car with a coffee, i'll come to pretty much wherever you are. or i'd always love to have you over to my lakeview studio. we have coffee there too...but, we'd probably be with your kids.

michele is a proud member of the national association of professional child photographers (napcp) & her work has been featured in a few, fun places such as NAPCP, InspIRED MAGAZINE, Modern Luxury: North Shore, life & lens & Paper Source.

We have lived all over the country and used many photographers to capture our children. Nobody has captured the sweet essence of personality like Michele. She produces priceless, perfect photos. I wish I could afford to fly her to the many places we’ve moved...she is the gold standard and simply can’t be replaced!

Michele does an amazing job capturing our family’s personality through her camera lens. Even on some of our munchkins most uncooperative moments, she gets them laughing and smiling. I’m always in awe when we get our pictures at the vivid colors and candid moments she produces. Michele’s patience, humor, and raw talent are unlike any other photographer we have used.

We have trusted Michele with our family photos for over 6 years and she doesn’t disappoint. She has a million tricks up her sleeve to get my little ones to smile and she always manages to get great shots. And she just happens to be hilarious which always makes our sessions a lot of fun!

Michele has an incredible gift for capturing the love & quirkiness of our entire family and making it look beautiful. Not only that, but she is so fun to be around she makes every event she captures more enjoyable just because she’s there! The smiles she elicits are genuine and her work is spectacular!
