Just a Little 'bout Micah
I’m from a small town in Idaho named Blackfoot, where I was born and raised as a country girl gone prissy (but not that bad). I am a PROUD mother of 3 amazing gifts from God; Deondré (22) 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 (18), and Chevee (7), and also my son's girlfriend, Desirea (20), who I consider my own blood. They really are my pride and joy who allow me to get enough oxygen to my brain daily due to the long deep breaths I need to take regularly! We're now just a family of girls, but we are strong & independent who take turns lifting one another up on our hardest of days.
My passion for photography & 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 is what brings me the greatest joy and warmth to my heart.
I could easily say that I’ve been carrying around a camera since I was 2 years old and everyone just knew that I was going to be a photographer when I grew up, but I would be lying. I’m just your ordinary average joe (jane) who’s taken pictures on those expected-to moments such as birthdays, at Christmas, special occasions, etc… but what I CAN validate and testify to is my 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 a relationship with everyone there and to earn their trust so that everyone is relaxed and having fun! 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 guess the one thing that I love 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 will be breathtaking, something that will make you gasp and possibly choke you up when you see the finished product – and by doing this – it means that I take my time and give each one of the pictures from your session with me a very personal and special artistic touch. 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, all kinds of announcements – I love to do this stuff too! I started this part of my business 16 years ago when I worked for a printing company as their designer, took a break from it for some time but now I’m back and even stronger and more aggressive knowing that design, photography & the world of art is where I belong.
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, an experience you can go talk to your friends about (I have a referral program too, hint, hint…). I’m just that laid-back country girl that hates stress and just wants to have a good time and make the best out of the every day hustle and bustle!
