Just a Little 'bout Micah
I. LOVE. UTAH. Living in the heart of Utah County and being a professional photographer for over 10 years, I’ve had the opportunity to experience and to see all the many beautiful areas that Utah has to offer. I have most definitely gained a strong love for this state that I now call “home.”
I was born and raised in a small town in Idaho as a country girl gone prissy (but not all that bad). I am a PROUD mother to 3 amazing gifts from God; Deondré (25) who made me a Mother and taught me the meaning of TRUE & UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, but who is now my Guardian Angel from up above; he was called home at the young age of 20 on September 3rd, 2016. I also have 2 amazingly gorgeous girls, Aaliyah (21), and Chevee (10). They truly are my pride and joy, and they motivate me in so many ways and have taught me so much about life and all the amazing and beautiful things that it has to offer.
My passion for photography and capturing special moments and turning them into digital memories has grown so much since my son gained his angel wings. I know the feeling and importance of memories, moments and magic, and capturing all of that with my camera for you to have and to hold for the rest of your life - and that is what warms my heart and brings me the greatest joy.
I have a strong love for creativity, design and turning any little object into a piece of art – that’s what I do! Plus I love meeting and hanging out with new people - the "people person" in me. My style of photography is very natural and relaxed. Right from the beginning of each session, I’m doing what I can to build trust so that everyone can feel relaxed and have fun and to be able to walk away with a fun and amazing experience! The art of photography is more than just lighting and composition; it’s knowing when to anticipate that sweet smile of a baby, the silly faces of a child, and the stolen glances between a couple in love. I would have to say that the one thing that I love most about being a photographer is being able to capture life as it happens. I love taking a photograph, a memory, a magical moment, and turning it into art – something that could possibly take your breath away and put into view the blessings in your life. I won’t turn you into something that you’re not, only something that you may not see in yourself that others do – like me!
Design is also part of my business – whether it be logo design, business cards, fliers, brochures, wedding, graduation, baby announcements – I also love this type of artistry! I started this part of my business over 20 years ago when working for a printing company as their designer.
With every client I photograph, it’s not just about the finished product but also about the experience, the warm fuzzy feeling you get when you walk away at the end of your session, an experience you can go talk to your friends & family about (I have a referral program too, hint, hint…). I am just that laid-back country girl that avoids stress and focuses on the positive and all the blessings in life, and I always strive for peace and happiness. I try to fully enjoy life and make the best out of it and the everyday hustle and bustle! I can’t wait to meet you!
