The Twins and Me

Untitled photo

This photo was taken on a cold day in Jan at Sky Peak Bald Ledge, after hiking in the deep snow.  The dogs were troopers that day.  We made the first tracks and due to the fresh, deep snow, they quickly tired of hopping and resorted to dragging their one back leg over the snow.   One of them was so tired, we had to carry him back home. Yes, these 2 dogs with me are amputees, they were rescued from the roadside in TN, and each had sustained permanent injuries when we found them. Amputating the leg, was a healthier option.  We call them the twins since they both are missing the same back leg and pal around like brothers.

About Michelle

Photography is a journey of discovery. It involves exploring, planning, endurance and lots of patience.  It is about capturing a moment that stirs the mind and soothes the soul, it has the power to make you smell the flora in the air, hear the rushing water of a cascading river and feel the sun's warmth as though you are standing right there in that moment. This is my passion.

My camera is usually aimed at the abundant scenery in New England. I live by the lakes and the White Mountains of NH and therefore never run out of beautiful landscape.  I have been published in photography books, several magazines including Internationally, White Mountain Calendars, Postcards.  My work is displayed in office buildings and on company websites. It is difficult to describe the feeling I have when I walk into a home and see my work that I struggled to capture, hanging prominently in someone's living room or entry way.  I am blessed.            

I offer to photograph your land and capture your views in all seasons.

I also capture  Portraits of Pets, Equine, and Families.   

I offer Commercial work with Architecture and interior design.

I can take old family photographs and create new photos to print and frame and surprise a loved one.  I can also take several old photographs and design a collage.
