Hey there! I'm MICHELLE... the one behind the camera.

Sooo... why book an experience with ME? Because I'm more than just a photographer.

With my degree in psychology and years spent working in children's group homes + art camps, I've learned to instantly connect with a range of personalities and work with all sorts of moods. I work hard so that you don't have to... creating the most stress-free and FUN experience from start to finish.

Long story short: The camera has been an extension of my hand for most of my life, and I've been running The Suitcase Studio for over 11 years now... providing FUN + stress-free photo experiences with less posing + more PLAY!

And I still use my psychology background and insight on each + every photo shoot as I calm the nerves of parents, maneuver kids out of meltdown mode, and help everyone connect in the most genuine of ways.

I see you the way your loved ones see you; quirks and all. And we celebrate that uniqueness, together. HOW? By creating a FUN photo experience for all involved (cross my heart). Yes, we'll be taking pictures. But by the end of it, I swear you'll forget I have the camera in my hand. So let's PLAY!
