about michelle

Look there! That's a picture of me and two of my favourite things (my honey and my camera). I'm Michelle, and I specialize in portraits and all kinds of fun in Dallas, TX and the surrounding areas (though don't let that stop you from contacting me..where would I not travel!?).

we can be friends if you love any and all of the following: color, surprises, strawberries, adventure, and finding everyday magic every day.

MORe >

Everyone says this, but I really mean it: I've always been into photography. I got my first digital camera for my eighteenth birthday and ever since I've been that obnoxious friend who takes pictures of EVERYTHING. It's nice that these days I feel like I've turned that obsession into something a little more constructive than not letting my boyfriend eat his food or drink his beers before I immortalize their image for instagram.

I live in Dallas, TX with my baby, my boy, my boyfriend, and a cat called Squeak. I love french fries, living in Texas, making friends, using emojis, Diet Coke, maps, and my camera. My last name is French, in case you were wondering. It's not as hard to pronounce as it looks, I promise! Try it out .. carry-AIR! See? I told you it was easy. 

those who do not believe in magic will never find it.

If you can't tell, I love the ability photography gives me to capture everyday magic.
A kiss, a smile, a connection, everyday emotions. An ordinary location whose magic is revealed in the right light ..
