If you're here, you're looking to become an elevated version of yourself. 

Whether you are an entrepreneur needing headshots or a bride wanting to look perfect in your wedding photos, I can help you look and feel fabulous - AND like yourself.


I'm Michelle, and my clients and brides come to me for my signature, contemporary look with elements of timeless beauty. My clients have told me that after I do their makeup and hair, they looked perfect in their photos, and didn't want to take it off at the end of the night.
