PORTRAIT ARTIST & PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER
Michele's unique style of portraiture sets her apart from other Island photographers as it reaches far beyond the usual studio or typical beach captures to "environmental art" uniquely designed for a particular setting, and often combined with painterly techniques or mixed media embellishment. She also works with many commercial clients to create unique personality-branded images for promotional purposes.
An award winning and accomplished children's portrait photographer originally from the Washington DC area, Michele now enjoys serving coastal clients of all ages in the beautiful Lowcountry -- Hilton Head Island, Bluffton, Beaufort and Savannah. She continues to invest in her ongoing education with renown photographic and artistic masters around the world.
Michele is one of only 3% of photographers internationally who have earned the Certified Professional Photographer credential from Professional Photographers of America, as well as the sought-after Photographic Craftsman Degree. In her free time, she donates sessions to families of children with disabilities, and teaches other photographers her techniques.
