Meet Ryan, a super talented (and cute) Senior from South Parkersburg High. This young man does it all… baseball player, hunter, musician! We had an awesome session and I wanted to share a few favorites…

MORE UPDATES COMING SOON!!!

Just a friendly note to let you know that the studio will be closed this coming week.

I will be in Virginia Beach from Sunday August 23 until Friday August 29th.

The studio will re-open on Monday, September 1st.

Thanks!
Michele

SOOOO, it’s that time of year. I think I am more excited about school being back in session that all the kiddies are. It’s Senior Portrait time here at the studio, which is one of my favorite seasons! The high schoolers are keeping me busy and I’m having a blast making each and every Senior session unique and fun!

Some recent Seniors:


Katelyn Cline (from Braxton County High School)


Laura Borrelli (from Parkersburg Catholic High School)


Ryan Beegle (from Southern High School in Racine, OH)

LOTS MORE TO COME.

So Abby is basically the craziest, funniest, lovable bride of all time. Never before, until this past Saturday night, has one of my brides grabbed me while I was taking her picture on the dance floor, hugged me, and told me she loved me. Lol. Seriously, she’s a blast. After I got home Saturday night I kept remembering moments from the day and just couldn’t stop laughing. If you keep up with this blog you might remember Abby & Doug from when I traveled to Washington, D.C. back in March and shot their engagements.

I am kinda sad it’s all over, because I won’t be seeing Abby as much (though I am sure we’ll keep in touch through myspace and email), but I know that this is just the beginning of an amazing journey together for Doug and Abby. They deserve the best life has to offer, because they are wonderful people.

Congrats & remember, you’re rockstars!



Angela (one of my best friends) and Lyxi, her beautiful 12 year daughter, came down from Parkersburg last Thursday evening for a mother/daughter fashion shoot of sorts. I recently gained access to shoot on the top floor above my studio so we got creative in the old space and in the studio as well. Angela & Lyxi and I have always been able to create some amazing images together, it just comes natural. I think it’s a combination of the fact that we are really comfortable with each other and they seem to love all my ideas :)

Angela is a model, can u tell? Lyxi may be in the future, she’s so beautiful!

Say hello to my new nephew, Landon. He’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

I am going to take tons and tons of pictures of this boy from now until forever, lol.

The proud papa, my little brother Jonathan…

Congrats to one of my favorite couples, Chris and Jennifer Sanson, who were married on July 19th in Sissonville. Photographing their engagement and wedding has been such a rewarding experience because both them and their families are wonderful. The ceremony was held at North Hills Baptist Church in Sissonville and the beautiful reception took place at Little Creek Country Club in South Charleston, which is one of my favorite locations for celebrations!

Thank you, Chris and Jenn, you both rock and I wish you the best life has to offer!




















Sorry for being so behind on my blogging. June flew right past me. Some highlights: my mini-vacation to the beach, a couple portrait parties, bunches of weddings and portrait sessions, and a fashion shoot at one of Pittsburgh’s hottest bridal shops for InWheeling Magazine- look for my work in their upcoming fall issue as well as on the cover of their Winter issue!

July was a super busy month for me at the studio. It was like Baby month or something, seriously. But that was fine with me, because I adore babies… all the sweet smiles, drool, and suprise facial expressions! I love it! Oh and I even had a concert at my studio in July, which was so much fun!

August is here and it’s Senior Portrait time… my seniors are booking from all over the state and I am super excited. Plus at the end of the month I’m heading back to the beach… this time Virginia Beach! Can’t wait to get on my body board in the ocean again! Oh, not to mention my brother and his wife are going to have a baby this month! I can’t wait to meet my little nephew, Landon Gage!

Here are a few images from the past few months…
