Hi, I’m Michelle!
I live in Virginia with my two (homeschooled) kids, my husband, and one very cute pup. I write about, and photograph, what inspires me. Which means I write about, and photograph, life. The pretty, the not so pretty. The in-between. You could say my writing and photography are a form of meditation, because they are. Slowing me down, zeroing me in, expanding me out. Helping me catch the tiny moments that make up every day. I like the tiny. There’s a lot of punch packed in there.
dark chocolate, watermelon, freshly baked bread
cloudy days, sunny days, rainy days
trees, flowers, all bodies of water
a good belly laugh, a big bear hug, a genuine smile
slippers, wool sweaters, jeans, also yoga pants
banana bread, with or without chocolate chips (never nuts)
pilates and yoga
honesty and kindness
tea and coffee
I also love helping others watch for the tiny bits that fill their days, the bits that unfold into their stories. One way I do this is with my online classes. Additionally, I work with small businesses and families, making visual records of their stories.
