Fun Facts About the Photographer

Hi there!  My name is Michelle, owner and photographer of Clique Portraits.  I am a wife and mother of two amazing boys.  I practically grew up with a camera in my face.  My mother is an amazing photographer, she taught me to appreciate and how to document, special moments.  Growing up I looked at photography as a hobby and a way to express myself creatively.  After years of study and mentoring, I learned to perfect my techniques and eventually made my passion - my career.

Building relationships with my clients is the most important part of my business.  I pride myself in my ability to make people feel comfortable.  I try to make each session a relaxed and enjoyable experience.  Through the eye of my lens I try to capture my subjects spirit.  My goal is to create your own personal work of art.  One that you will proudly hand on the wall and be admired for your lifetime, and generations to come...



My favorite movie(s) of all time are Say Anything (..."I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen") and The Breakfast Club (..."Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place.")

I and am reality TV junkie.

I believe in love, and god, and happily ever after.

I'm a southern girl at heart.

I cry at weddings, and births, and school plays and cotton commercials haha!

My favorite food is peanut butter anything.  Or burritos.

I started taking portraits when I was 12.  I am self taught and regularly mentored by the greatest photographers on the planet!

I love a good debate!

What I love about being a photographer is the absolute joy it brings to others. Also, I am a creative person, so, photography is an wonderful outlet to use my imagination and create art.


 XOXO -Michelle
