Meet the Artist
HI I'M MICHELE!
Hi I'm Michele, artist, mother, chronic optimist, bright lipstick lover, and professional confidence booster.
As an artist I take my role seriously when it comes to people commissioning me to create art for them.
I believe in the power of portraits to build confidence, to remind us we are worthy and to light a fire within our hearts.
I have witnessed beautiful transformations through my art, and I can't wait to create with you.
I am an international award winning portrait photographer, specializing in intimate portraits, boudoir,
beauty and branding photography, but more importantly I am here to be your confidence cheerleader!
While I take my creative process seriously, I do it all to a good playlist and keeping things fun,
cause we all need more fun in our lives and fun is one of my core values.
To provide a safe space where you can express yourself without judgment. To be your cheerleader, celebrating who you are now and honouring the journey that got you here. We welcome ALL those who self-identify as women, including trans and
femme non-binary folks.
"Be a diamond covered unicorn. Unique and unbreakable."
I believe in you
YOU ARE A WORK OF ART
You are beautifully complex, made up of a million experiences, beliefs, values, and thoughts.
You have different moods, sides, and ways of expressing yourself. Maybe there’s a ferocious alter-ego hidden in there.
Your life has taken twists and turns. You may have gained a few scars along the way, and you made it through.
You’ve navigated it all, you’re still in the arena, and you should be damn proud of that.
I want to help you tell your story, and celebrate the body that has carried you through life. Friend, you’re a warrior!
You go days (sometimes weeks, months, or years) taking care of everyone but yourself.
It’s time you release yourself from the pressure and confines of being who everyone else needs you to be.
I love F words
F words are pretty great, and I am not afraid to use them! Here's some of my favourites, that will also give you a feel for who I am, my values, and my approach to life: Feminist, Fabulous, Fierce, Friendly, Fun, Fearless, Friendship, Free Spirit, Flow, Fashion, Fries! (lol, who doesn't love fries!) and you know my fav.... F*ck!
I walk the talk!
As a photographer I feel it is important for me to also be in front of the camera, to know what it feels like to be vulnerable with others and to express myself through my art. That is why you see self portraits sprinkled throughout my site and socials, because I truly walk the talk I preach.
I have often struggled with not being enough or being too much - and I am here to say we are all enough, right now, today! I also believe we need to take up more space, so I am here to ensure that happens! We are beautiful and it is our right to express that! Now, let’s embrace your awesome together!
