Hey friend! I’m Michele
I’m a popcorn loving, bright lipstick wearing, chronic optimist, dedicated to showing people their awesomeness through the art of photography! People say my energy is contagious, and that my quirky sense of humour puts them at ease. My insatiable curiosity and my love for connecting people to their magic are my superpowers! I truly believe that to create scroll stopping images that will create connection and start conversations, I need to know YOU, which is why I love asking questions before my camera ever comes out. The more questions asked, the more creative solutions we can come up with to make you magnetic! The results will attract the people and energy you want in your life and business – and who doesn’t want that?!
Move over random people on Pinterest, it’s time for YOU to be on YOUR dream vision board!
MY PROMISE TO YOU IS TO BE YOUR BRAND BESTIE!
Together we will create on brand photos that will help you soar to the top with confidence and style!
You are in business for all kinds of reasons. Lemme guess a few:
- to make a difference
- to make an impact
- to leave a legacy…
- and how about this one that is so important: TO MAKE MONEY!Yup, that is ok to admit and to want!
I want you to walk away with photos drenched in your personality that connect you to your dream clients! How do photo’s do this, you ask? Well they build a story about you, they show your brand values, and they show the world why they should choose you. Now I know you are hella cool, but how will they know that if you are hiding behind stock photos?!
I invite you to take up space, celebrate who you are and your passion for what you do. I am here to be your brand bestie to make this happen, so you can attract all the abundance you damn well deserve!
Now, who doesn’t want that?!
DO YOU BELIEVE IN...
Don’t get me wrong, I love a good quote card now and again. And stock images? They have their place in the world. But if you’re hiding behind them in your business, it’s time we had a chat! I know you put your clients first, so maybe you’re nervous to make it a little bit more about you. But trust me, you won’t regret it! Now more than ever, people want to #MeetTheMaker and connect with the humans behind the brands they support.
Putting more of you into your business can be nerve-wracking, I get that! But let me tell you, it’s worth it (and if I’m honest, nowadays it’s 100% necessary). Brand photography lets you build that connection with your audience in a way that’s professional but still inviting. And relating to your audience will make them so much more loyal to you.
Your business needs content that’s personal, reaches your ideal clients, and converts. And those iPhone shots? They just don’t cut it anymore (not even the ones you took on portrait mode). On-brand images make it easy to create content that lets your audience in on what you’re doing and who you are. Plus, if you start the conversation, they’ll join in, giving you invaluable insight into what they want from you.
PERFECT, SO DO I!
AND THESE ARE THE CORE ELEMENTS THAT MY PHOTO EXPERIENCES ARE BASED ON
With Love From Assunta
“Do you dread having your headshots done? That was me, too! Until I met Michele. Michele is an amazing, fun, genuine, and gifted photographer!!! From quotation and branding session to photoshoot to final photos, my experience with Michele was A+. She made me feel safe to be me and drew out my fun side. And, she has a keen sense for different background textures that make your outdoor photos stand out!” ~Assunta Iannilli
