...Meet Haley...

Hey everyone! I want you to meet my new intern, Haley! She'll be working with me part-time over the summer. She's already been a great help. Check out her bio:

"My name is Haley Berryman and I'm 17 years old and a senior at Cox Mill High School in Concord, North Carolina.  I am an only child and have three pets who I enjoy photographing often.  I am extreamly passionate about fashion and especially photography.  I am obsessed with high fashion and couture.  My dream is to one day become a famous photographer and live in Italy.  It would be a dream come true for me to have one of my photographs in a spread in Italian Vouge. 

When I am behind the camera I feel comfortable and in my own element.  I take pictures of everything and anything and I always have my camera with me because you never know when the oppertunity for a great picture will present itself.  I believe that photos capture memories so I take pictures of everything I do.  I never want to forget how I spent my life so I never miss a chance to take a picture!"

...Waiting for Palmer...

One of my favorite things to photograph is pregnant women, especially a first pregnancy. It's such a special time and definitely should be documented. A lot of women feel funny about having maternity photos. They feel too big or unattractive but it's one of the most important times in your life. To me, every expecting mother is absolutely beautiful!

The following images are from Lauran and Shane's maternity session. Talk about a gorgeous pregnant woman! And Shane's not too bad either. :D This will be their first baby girl, Palmer, due in July. I can't wait to meet and photograph her!

A Lot Has Happened in 5 Months

I cannot believe it's almost March and I haven't written a single post in 5 months! A lot has happened during that time:

  1. My sister (one of the 7) Terri got married
  2. The busy season was awesome, busier but smoother than the year before
  3. Pretty relaxing Christmas and New Year's (spent in NC...a little sad I didn't get to see my family but I needed some rest)
  4. Attended Imaging USA in New Orleans (AWESOME!!! I got a great new gadget to help me entertain the little ones while I'm taking their photos)
  5. Painted and redecorated the Gallery (not totally finished but it's going to be AMAZING)
  6. Got a new car (Toyota Highlander, which I will be adorning obnoxiously with the Images by Michele logo!)
  7. Jessy got her license! Ahhhhh!!!! I'm pretty sure I have a whole head of gray hair! She's actually a really good driver but I still worry like crazy. 
That pretty much sums up the last few months. I also discovered that I am gluten and dairy sensitive and that if I eat anything with either of those, my immune system gets thrown into a hiatus. Needless to say, once I gave up all of my favorite foods, I lost 10 lbs! :D I actually feel great and even though it's been rough, I've found lots of substitutes for some of my favorite eats. 

On a photography note, here are a few newborn images that I've recently taken that I love..yup I have baby fever!!:
