To me photography is a form of art, a form of expression. Finding something interesting and pressing the shutter to create an amazing photograph is like getting a touchdown in football, a home run in baseball, or a hole in one in golf, etc.. With photography you are capturing a moment in time that will never take place again, creating memories for the people that come after us to see. A favorite quote of mine [frame]The camera doesn’t make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE. – Ernst Haas[/frame]
Angel Michelle Photography has always been a dream of mine. Seventeen years ago I began photographing my daughter and found that my hunger for photography began to grow. I found myself beginning to read and apply different techniques until I found the one that fit my artistic value. I believe my style of photography is one of photo journalism. I love telling a story with my images. I moved over 200 miles north to attend the Art Institute of Chicago to realize my dreams. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 2010 and began applying the skills I learned from school to my art.
Photography for me is storytelling in its purest form. From the beginning of a relationship, to the ceremony of vows, to the birth of a child, and ultimately capturing a family candidly I feel that I could give a family the best gift of all and that is memories and moments captured. The images on this website are my favorite pieces and mean the world to me. I consider myself a perfectionist so when I capture your children, or your family I want to give my best to you the client.
