Michele Alexis Photography Real life. Real moments. Lasting memories. Capturing those moments and milestones that tell your story!
(10)

Strong roots make beautiful leaves. My life has been devoted to passing memories on to future generations, both as a music educator and a family photographer. ​ My passion for photography and family history is rooted in the life and influence of my late grandmother. She was the matriarch of our family, yes, but to me she was always the one with the camera, capturing every special moment she could. Birthdays, Christmas, family gatherings, any excuse to pull out the camera and shout "smile!" Only recently after going through tons and tons of her old photos---and I mean old---I realized that she was carrying on the memories of her family before me---my ancestors who I had never met. It has been such a delight to thumb through photos that captured a time I never knew-people I'd only heard of and never seen in pictures-that captured so many special moments, silly or serious, grainy and unfocused or tack-sharp. Holding my family's history in my hands, has been an enlightening and humbling experience at the same time. ​ I have shared those old photos with my husband and two sons, and they now know and understand the care, value and love my grandmother held fast to with her family photos. ​ You and your family deserve that same opportunity. I want to capture those moments and milestones that tell your story, and will serve to pass on the memories of your life, loved ones, and legacy for generations to come. ​ Let's get started!

I forgot how little newborns are! My own boys are growing so fast, and this family lifestyle session reminded me of just how tiny and precious new life is...I'm so grateful for my growing boys who aren't so tiny anymore, and also for the opportunity to capture this family's most special time with their tiny little new guy! 🥰🥰🥰

One of my fave sessions, this brother and sister are so close with each other and got along great! I even asked if that's how they are at home and they said "yes!!" I'm so impressed! And, of course, I couldn't resist getting close up with those eyes and those freckles. 😍😍😍

This family session ended up being two separate mini sessions due to our first one being cut short because of the extreme cold, but I'm so happy with how it all worked out! Loved the resulting combination of an outdoor session and an indoor lifestyle family session! And, they even decorated the house a little early to create that special Christmas feel, LOVE IT. 😍😍😍

08/13/2019

Family photography isn't just about photographing people, it's about capturing memories of the times, people and things you cherish most. It can be as simple as an image of something that belonged to a loved one. These antique tea cups, some of them from Germany, were part of my late grandmother's collection, passed down to her from her mother and grandmother. I proudly display them now in my house as a reminder of her, and also as a reminder of the fragility of our own memories. Take time to share the stories of your family's history with your children in detail. Time can blur the memory, but images can keep it crisp and clear forever. ❤️
