Update - I'm still alive!

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 24, 2017, 1:42 PM


Been busy with stuff here and there, I still live! :lol:

Finished the photos from the December wedding - very happy on how they turned out :) Will put together the disc this weekend for the clients.

Will start going through the old photos I took of my son, and get those wrapped up. Not to mention that he recently turned 7 months old - so I have to get that session going this weekend. He's getting older so quickly, I can barely keep up! Customer photos are done, so I'm going to get his photos done now.

He still cannot fully sit-up on his own, so his "Construction Theme" will be postponed to probably May; will do a Spring-theme next month in April I think... So this month will be a random paper-boy and another mini-session of him as a frog. hahaha!

Wedding Reception Session coming up at the end of April
Wedding Session in July

Happy Spring everyone!

:star: for stock: please send me a link of the final work, and give me credit please in the description. thank you! (only images marked as "stock" are allowed to be used!)

I am a self-taught photographer utilizing the skills and fundamental elements from several photography classes I have attended. I also continue to study books and online sources, and gain knowledge from the ever-so-fun experimentation of my lovely little camera.

I'm a photographer for NE Ohio and enjoy taking photos of individuals, couples, families, and events. Taking pictures of kids being just kids, within their own imagination - I always find fascinating.

:boogie: If you are in NE Ohio and need a photographer anywhere from your pet – to a wedding – please message me!

You can also find me photographing animals, insects, and landscapes for fun.

The lenses I own are my 42mm, 58mm, and my newest lens being my 60mm macro lens for my Olympus PEN E-PL1 camera.

I have significant experience with various Adobe programs including Photoshop, LightRoom, and InDesign.

Before photography, I used to draw a lot and also loved graphic design on my computer; I used to work with photoshop a lot making layouts for my now, deceased website (miechelle.com) - back when domains where really big, as well as other random computer graphics. (you can see some of my drawings and graphics in my galleries as well!)

Extra Info:
My name is Miechelle (me-shell). My Dad, has always been a Beatles fan. So my name was adjusted to sound like Paul singing 'Michelle' - Miechelle..my belle.

"mishkuu" has been my nickname ever since i was in 7th grade (1997) by my friends. To this day, how they came up with it remains a mystery. I'm still called it to this day by different groups of friends. (see if you can find it in my "Miechelle Photography" logo!)

I have a BA in Cultural Anthropology and a certificate (an in-between a BA and a MA) in Asian Studies. I love learning about different cultures and meeting new people. Anything artsy is a loved hobby of mine (music, photography, drawing, digital art), and I love trying new things.

I studied abroad in 2006 in Japan through Temple University Japan - was there for 4 months. I traveled a lot while attending school for Cultural Anthropology, Asian Studies, and Japanese. I also went on vacation there in 2009 - 8 days in Tokyo, and 8 days in Okinawa. I traveled to Mexico in 2013, and was there for a week with my husband. You can find photos from my trips within the various galleries on this site.

I have always liked taking photos, but never truly thought of it as a full-time hobby. While in Japan in 2006, I first started to experiment with different angles and lighting for the first time. Even though I had a regular hand-held digital camera (Panasonic DMC-LZ7) at the time - I stretched what I could do with it, and became very pleased with the outcome. Some of the older photos on here were taken with my hand-held camera! (ex: The New River Bridge photo) I started to enjoy taking photos as a hobby, but I still had a long way to go... A few years later I received my Olympus PEN E-PL1 for Christmas as a surprise gift, and began studying.


Other hobbies of mine: movies, tattoos, videogames, history, comparative studies, swimming, traveling, and being random. Dinosaurs (and pre-dinosaur creatures) I find to be neato as well. DUNKLEOSTEUS FTW.

I'm also obsessed with grasshoppers, mantids, frogs, birds, and other random critters. METROID!! :iconsamusplz:
