Thanks so much for checking out my website and stopping by! 

I am a fashion photog based in Los Angeles, but I love to travel so don't let that stop you from booking a shoot. I love collaborating with clients and bouncing ideas back and forth to create a shoot that you're proud!

I strive to work with brands that have ethical fashion practices and are helping to make a difference in our world. I know fashion can feel very exclusive; we need an industry that is inclusive of all body types and ethnicities. I make sure to take all these factors into consideration when I shoot to ensure that I'm doing my part to help change our industry. I'd love to hear about your vision.

Working with Michelle has been an absolute pleasure. She’s honestly made a stressful process of creating a lookbook so so easy! Her energy is amazing and honestly a dream to work with. shes become a friend and someone that I will go back to shoot more projects with. From setting up appointments and scheduling meetings to discussing photoshoot locations connecting me with models and delivering a look book that was as I had imagined.. I couldn’t have asked for someone better to work with. Talented and efficient. Thanks Michelle for a great experience! Will be working with you soon again xx

Check out what people are saying about working with Michelle!

Not only does Michelle have incredible photography skills, but she built my website from the ground up. She worked with me to come up with photoshoot concepts that would capture my business personality as well as my everyday life, and used techniques that aligned with my aesthetics. She made me feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera, and had the finished product back to me quickly. As for the website and overall branding, she made sure to check in with me every step of the way to ensure I was happy with the progress. She also took the time to send me examples, inspirations and ideas to really bring my vision to life and create a one-of-a-kind website. I cannot recommend her enough and will absolutely be using her services again!

Working with Michelle has been great. She easily grasped the vision I had for my brand and took it to the next level from a branding and visual perspective. She is extremely organized and her turnaround time on finalizing images after shoots is amazingly quick. She is a great communicator and overall joy to work with.

Michelle is such a talented and collaborative individual to work with. I’ve been following her work on Instagram for years now and I knew that I wanted to work with her for my Spring/Summer 2018 Hathorway lookbook, and so I flew all the way down to Southern California just to work with her. Throughout the entire process, Michelle wasn’t just a photographer; her role extended beyond that as she coordinated the entire photo shoot by connecting me with potential models, makeup artists, clothing vendors, as well as scouting out various locations. Being a designer myself, I’m quite particular on how I want to portray the look and feel of my brand, but Michelle was able to understand what I was looking for and was able to execute what I envision in my head. I’m so impressed with everything — with Michelle, her process, and the execution. Most definitely, I would recommend her to everyone in the fashion industry (only if she leaves room to work with me again in the future).
