Michelle Payne Photography »


“I’m always blown away by every single shot Michelle takes! Just take a look at her portfolio and you will be, too! The shots she has taken of my family have far exceeded my expectataions, especially since I have 4 young kids, and getting a good shot of all 4/the whole family is often a challenge! She not only has the best lenses and cameras that money can buy, but she combines her photography expertise with her incredible artistic talent (which not every photographer has) to compose each shot to perfection. Her photographs could belong in a magazine… she’s just as much an artist as a photographer 😉 Her shots are incredible regardless of the conditions- rain, fog, cold, etc… she can work with anything! And as many other reviewers have said, she’s so sweet and patient with children, which just makes for a very relaxed and natural session. Get ready to have lots of frames on hand, because you’ll get tons of “keeper” with Michelle.”—Svena Johnson

“She has taken pictures of both my children and they were amazing shots! For as long as I can and she is willing, I will always have her capture those rare moments of my most precious creations!Thank you Michelle!”—Christy Coffman-Cox

“I cannot say enough positive remarks about our session with Michelle. Not only was she wonderfully sweet and patient with our newborn son, she was able to capture some of the most beautiful images we could wish for.

“Michelle did our family photos and she was so fun and laid back, and as a photographer myself I was a little worried about having captured what I had in my own mind and Michelle did just that, and more! She thought of things even I didn’t think of, she gave us direction and poses. It was such an easy and fun going session. I cannot wait for our family pictures this year with our newest little addition included!”—-Caya Crosswhite

“Michelle was my photographer for my engagement photos and my wedding and she was amazing! She made sure to capture every moment I would’ve wanted without me even having to tell her anything. She had a limited amount of time for my engagement pictures and wedding due to lighting but she was so on top of it and captured some great moments and even those candid photos which are always the best! Thank you Michelle!”

“Michelle has captured so many special moments of my family over the years. She always has creative ways to integrate personal items or spaces without it feeling contrived. And the pictures that we take away from these sessions are priceless! What an amazing gift. She is extremely talented!”—Lindsey Hene

“Michelle’s photo session with my brand new baby went so effortlessly, I never thought the pictures were going to be as beautiful as they were. She understands how to place babies in the most adorable positions, she knows how newborns need to eat, sleep and have their diapers changed between photos. She gave us her entire morning just to make sure we got the best of what my baby had to offer. I treasure those pictures and have them framed all over my home. She is truly an artist.”—Sarah Bobolin

“Michelle is a wonderful person as well as a photographer. Her love for family and children is evident during her shoots. She has done newborn, Christmas, and family pictures for us, and we have been overly satisfied every time. I highly recommend her!”—Erika Shamrock
