"Michelle, your pictures are more than a hobby, more than an artful shot or a creatively cropped photo. Your pictures are poetry. You see something meaningful behind your lens. It's more than telling a story...you capture life lessons, relationships, one's development in process. I thought we were going on this photo shoot to take some pictures of our kids and maybe our family, too. I gained more than pictures and captured memories; I also learned about my family and I was able to step back and look at who we are today, appreciating this place in our life. You were quite professional and enjoyed us and laughed with us as we played, but beyond developing these pictures, you also share with us what you see in these photographs, what you see in my children, and sometimes how it affects you. This is such a gift. Thank you."

"After seeing Michelle's sweet pictures of the animals at Second Chance, I knew I loved her work and her ability to capture these special animals. I had high hopes that she would be able to capture my daughter's spirit as well, and my expectations were exceeded in every way. Michelle listened to what my husband and I had to say about our preferences and was then able to use her expertise to make all our ideas happen. My favorite part though were the special moments she captured that I never even imagined. We have already gone back for another photoshoot and if I had the money I would have Michelle follow us around with her camera so that all our happy moments would be captured just like this. Thank you, Michelle.” - Lisa Torres Stewart
"Oh, Michelle! Great photos--I'm so happy to get to see them! The girls are so much more photogenic than I am, but you still got some good ones even of me!"

"The feedback I have received about our photography for the Purple Sash Gala has been very positive! As a matter of fact, yesterday, Jan, my CEO told me that these are the best photos we have ever had for Purple Sash (in the past 9 years!) She is very pleased with your work and so am I. She's already asked if you would be willing to be our photographer again next year!"

"I think you take INCREDIBLE photos of the wonderful animals that Second Chance has! You are providing such an wonderful service to them and I truly think that YOUR work is helping to exponentially increase their adoption rate!!
You really capture the "soul" of those animals...you get that "look" in their eyes. It takes real skill/talent to be able to DO that! Thank You!!!!"
