summer golden light + baby Peyton.

Happy Summer! My friend Nicole's baby Peyton is 9 months old! I can't believe it. I've been sure to do a shoot with her every 3 months so I have her first year for my photography portfolio (plus I can't help it- I see a cute baby & I have to photograph + snuggle it). I really love how these photos came out. The golden late summer day lighting + the field I recently found + some cute props + adorable baby Peyton= happy photographer Michelle :)

With every shoot I do, I feel more comfortable and confident, and I see my work getting better. My editing flow is coming more naturally (I only recently learned Lightroom), and every shoot is starting to look more like me. I'm happy with how my portfolio is coming along!

xo, Michelle
