Final Days of 2016

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 18, 2016, 8:28 AM

Been pretty busy lately with this and that.

Successful Halloween/Fall Session with my son on 10.22.16

Took his 3-month photos on 11.13.16 - these pictures were also used for our family Holiday cards. The location was the same as the previous photos; our livingroom floor. I put him in a onesie that resembles a little blue tux - comes complete with a button-on bowtie; incredibly cute. He was placed on a white blanket on the floor and we were all set! He was grinning and cooing at the camera the whole time; was so proud of him. We had to take a few mini-breaks because I could not believe how well the session was going- him giving me smiles bigger than the previous ones, had to stop and give him kisses. So happy!

Next weekend I'm taking photos at the famous site in Akron, Stan Hywet. It costs over a hundred dollars to be allowed to take commercial photos there (2 hrs) ! I'm very lucky to have clients willing and wanting to do their Engagement pictures so badly here, that they paid for it. (it was their idea for the site too) I've never gotten the chance to take photos here, so I'm honored and excited to do so!

The weekend after that is a local Wedding on the 2nd. The venue is very charming and retro - so beautiful! Looks victorian too. The wedding is towards evening but I will start taking photos of the Bride in the afternoon. Thank you for choosing me; I cannot wait to capture your special day! Had a blast with the couple in August for their Engagement Session (will post those soon).

I'll probably snap photos of my boy as it gets closer to Christmas, with Christmas-themed photos too. I'm lucky that he loves the camera so much!

Great way to end the year :) Thanks again 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 ( - 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' - 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:
