Michele Jeanine Photography is thrilled to be sponsoring Pedal Hilton Head Island on May 2nd. Not only does this day promise to be a pedal mania for individuals who love cycling and families that are looking for something fun to do on the island on a gorgeous Sunday morning in May, but better yet, the proceeds support the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island just down the road from our new home base. What better way to ensure that all children on the island have access to safe activities and a variety of fun programs.
We hope you’ll pedal right alongside Michele through Hilton Head’s “cyclist’s paradise,” noticing as she pulls out her camera here and there to grab some images of the day’s excitement. As a children’s portrait artist on Hilton Head, she’ll be on the lookout for kids who are exploring the island’s 60 miles of bike paths lined with palm trees which practically lead riders any place they might need to go.
Michele loves to bike to the nearby village shops to pick up something at the grocery store, get her nails done, or perhaps once in a while even wave to a celebrity at the book store as he checks out his newest publication. Having cycled here since she was a little girl (and now a new permanent resident on the north end of the island), Michele just can’t stay away from her new sunrise, lunch hour and sunset riding routines. With photography gear packed on the back of her bike, she navigates this natural jungle-like island setting, getting to know where to find the biggest alligators, the tallest whooping cranes, the whitest ibises and other interesting creatures, so she can show her grandchildren the next time they visit. Riding along the marsh, the bluff, the beach, the piers, through civil war cemeteries, to the horse farm, and to her favorite “deserted island” to sit under the palm trees not far from home listening to podcasts, there’s always a relaxing trip that can be taken and many images to be captured along the way.
If you haven’t run into Michele yet on her bike or standing beside it with her camera, be sure to give her a call and set up a time to chat about her professional photography services and what she might be able to do for you. In the mean time, we’re getting our branded materials ready for Pedal HHI registration, and hope to see you along the 20 mile course. Be sure to look for these great foldable cool-down fans in your goody bag!
