Well hello! I'm so excited that you stopped by. I’m Michelle and I’m a Virginia + Destination Portrait Photographer based in Alexandria, VA. As a passionate photographer, I photograph the way they make me feel, not just the subjects. So it is always important for me to get to know my clients through a pre-session consultation and discuss my style and method.
I understand how frustrating it gets when looking for the perfect photographer for some precious moments of your life because those moments are truly fleeting. The tip I can share is that ignore the technical aspect of the photographer (hey, all professional photographers know how to generate a perfectly focused and properly exposed photo), instead, ask yourself: do I feel the photographers’ excitements and joys when a genuine moment is captured?
As a natural light photographer, I strive to create a unique experience that is tailored for each client. It never excites me to shoot generic poses that people find everywhere on face book page, magazines or blogs. Those are pretty, but not unique. My heart always melts for tender moments like a mom tries to calm her baby, the smile a-baby-kick puts on the mom’s face in the maternity session, or when parents chase after their little munchkins for a perfect pose! If that’s also what you are looking for, contact me and let’s chat!
