Michele Marie is a professional photographer, specializing in Location Photography featuring family portraits, professional branding, boudoir, pets and event photography of all occasions and scenery from all parts of the country.
Based in Chicago, I love to travel to different destinations to capture just the right moments for individuals, families and companies. I also have a passion for social media marketing and design having graduated from Loyola University in Chicago with an MBA specializing in marketing.
I have visited, lived and worked in Key West for over 15 years. My 15 year old daughter, Mia, was born right after I started my destination wedding photography business, so my business became 'part-time'. Now that she is in school, I have the time to become the full-time destination photographer and artist.
To me, having a camera in hand is as natural as breathing the air. It’s how I communicate with people. It has given me the opportunity in small ways to give back to the communities that I am involved in, either by donating my time to photograph an event or supporting Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. I hope to do more in the future.
My collection of Florida Keys and Key West Flora, Fauna and a little Funkitude is another side to my art. Found objects or situations are not moved or manipulated, but their beauty is captured in a single moment. I'll be adding more Chicago moments to the collection as well.
As my art has developed over the years, the words I would use to describe my style would be…..
Simple. Relaxed. Classic.
Enjoy & Cheers!
Michele Marie - keep wandering. keep wondering. keep it a little weird.
