About Me

My name is Michelle and I am a maternity and newborn photographer. Over a decade ago I had a major career and life change. After the birth of our third child, I was called to stop working as a General Pediatrician and stay home with my children. This was the most challenging and rewarding decision of my life. It was during those first months as a stay-at-home mom that I discovered a new passion ~ photography.

My love for photography has stood the test of time and miles… over 10 years and 3 states. In 2014, we moved from California to Tennessee where I relaunched my business. And now, once again, our move to Saint Johns, I am restarting my business yet again. I just cannot put down my camera when there are so many beautiful moments to capture!

Because of my training as a pediatrician, my heart is for maternity and newborn portraits. I have a cozy studio space in my home in Seaside Estates where I offer a luxurious, boutique-style experience for my clients. I offer both studio and coastal maternity sessions. I have an extensive studio wardrobe of lovely dresses for my maternity clients. My newborn sessions are simplistic, authentic and classic. I focus on the pureness of newborns and the joy they bring to new families.

When I am not taking pictures, I am busy homeschooling my 3 kids. I love cooking and caring for my huge collection of indoor plants. I cherish the time I spend with my ER physician husband, walking our dogs, gardening, and dreaming of things to come.

Ultimately, I desire to create breathtaking works of art of you and your loved ones. If you are looking for a luxury portrait experience I'd love to connect with you!
