Michelle begins each project by first listening to client expectations. She understands how difficult it can be for people to relax when not knowing a photographer. For families with young children, first visits usually take place in the family home or in a location of client's choice. Especially with families that have young children, she spends time getting the tour and being allowed into the inner circle before taking out her camera. This makes everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Michelle's sensitivity to the needs and desires of her subjects make her photographs true family heirlooms.
