Avanti Michelle Photography
Highly-skilled traveling certified professional photographer with 7yrs experience in all, who's driven to capturing your special moments while executing any planned concept or desired results for each photographic project. I am proficient with analog (film) as well as digital media.
Even though I shoot in many different genres of photography, I find myself gravitating towards Architectural, Boudoir/Dudoir, Portraiture, Fine Art, Event, Monochromatic (black and white), and Landscapes (nature).
I am an artist and a creator. Of my many talents I've been blessed with, photography has always been and will forever be my first love. My vision is different and unique & I feel as if it's my God given duty to share this beautiful talent with the world.
I love capturing life in general. Making memories are great but having a photograph to reflect back on those memories are even more powerful. Plus, being able to meet all different kinds of people and share in their experience is Divine.
