ABOUT mishelle

Behind the Lens

I find great joy in creating and capturing connections and beauty wherever I go. 
I'm a small business owner with big dreams and a wild heart. 


I'm mishelle.

My life both behind and in front of the lens are uniquely intertwined, and this is just another extension of myself & my creative spaces. My home being one, my life being another, and my career pulling it all together.  This is a place where my work, my ideas & my adventures overlap, giving you a peek into how I see love & light. 

Let's make magic together. 

my favorite things:

Xo, Mishelle 


recent place i've been

Asuza Canyon, California. On a recent trip to the West Coast, I rode the twisting roads from the valley floor to the top, soaring over 8,000 ft above sea level on the back of a Harley Davidson. 


guilty pleasure

True Crime podcasts.  Though I carry a degree in behavioral psychology, I once wanted to be a forensic psychologist.


Best part of my job 

The people.  Hands down.  I am a people person thru and thru. I draw on other's energy and love to give good vibes in return.


My why

These two.  My son, Nash & daughter, Jillian. They drive me crazy yet are the why & my purpose behind everything I do. 



Let's be real.  We all have them.  Mine is my nose.  This is one of the few images of my profile that I actually like. Photo courtesy of my teenage daughter, Jillian. 


I'm an airbnb superhost 

I've spent many years dreaming of having an Airbnb where I could host friends, families & visitors to a place where I was born and love so much. Lakeside Escape became that reality in late 2021. 

about you

My clients are seekers of beauty, lovers of travel, with a sharp eye for detail and moments that are real. 

You're searching to have a connection with your photographer; your storyteller.  You value experience, professionalism and an artist's eye. You want your photographs to look and feel timeless  and almost effortless. You want photography that is uniquely you, crisp & clean images that spark joy
every time you look at them. 

Does this sound like you?
Yes, let's start the process.


My second love.

high school seniors.

When I'm not shooting gorgeous weddings, I turn my attention to shooting seniors, which I LOVE.
