Who is Michelle Flowers? Michelle is a wife,mother,partner and a grandmother to her family. I love to make people smile and laugh even at making me look silly! Laugher seems to naturally break down barriers and walls quickly and we can become friends easily! Being surrounded by children all of my life with having six siblings, it was natural for me to love children, so there is where my passion lies. I love the children love with open hearts and are so true to their feelings. I love being able to capture this when I am photographing them.
How did I get interested in photography? I loved photography back in High School but it wasnt until the last ten years after purchasing a Nikon D80 that I could never put down. I started taking community courses on photography and I continue to study in classes, workshops and on-line courses. There are so many resources we can tap into via the internet these days to keep us update with trends and technology.
I love giving back to our local community especially to other's that may not be able to afford to give their little ones nice photo's and during the holiday ,Michelle Flowers Photography always donates her time to families who may not be able to afford a photographer to capture their little ones photograph's and it is a wonderful time of the year to do this as once they get their pictures they are able to share them with everyone including making the pictures as a special gift to their family members.
I had the great pleasure to meet Rachel who is a senior at Father Lopez High School . Rachel is such a talented, beautiful and unique individual! Rachel is no ordinary young lady, she has a vision, goals and her own style. She knows what she likes and knows how to communicate clearly and concisely!
I met with Rachel a week before our session so we can discuss her high senior session and what she was looking to gain from this experience. Meeting Rachel was very instrumental in the direction of her senior session. Of course we both agreed that we would be able to capture some natural photo's of her in a charming and gentle atmosphere but at the same time she wanted very precise style of high key photography with senior session also. Rachel was very helpful giving us some great idea's for her session but I think it was only when we were wrapping things up did the real vision and dreams come alive.
Rachel works on the Senior Year book and she is also very interested in Photography so she wanted something unique and true to her vision. I was very honored and interested in assisting Rachel with making sure her one very special flour shot would come to life!
we had such a great time during our session with both Studio and Outdoor Location. Check Rachel out with her camera!
I was first introduced to Rachel when she just found out she was expecting, but she did not know that I was a photographer at that time. Later on during her pregnancy , actually it was at her baby shower I mentioned to Rachel is she had considered doing a Maternity Session to document this very special time. Rachel, stated she had considered it but because she was shy in front of the camera she wasnt really sure if this was the right thing for her to do and she does not consider herself a "model" or that perfect shape !
I could tell Rachel was very interested in a Maternity Session so I continued our conversation later on after most of the guest had departed. I explained to Rachel that as a Professional Maternity Photographer there are various things that we can do in the studio that will help us get the beautiful photo's of the Mommies to be just by ensuring they are wearing the proper outfits which mostly are already in our possession and how we have her pose herself that will assist in how we photograph her to ensure we are getting the best outcome possible.
The next topic was one that is asked by almost every Mommy that comes to our studio.
That question is ...... what about the unwanted blemishes / stretch marks or dark veins that are showing on my belly, I just dont want those to be included in the picture bc they are so ugly . I was able to explain to Rachel, there are several things that we can do to reduce the amount of unwanted skin blemishes that can appear on her belly and during production and post production these blemishes will be addressed.
Rachel seemed thrilled after spending some time talking and reassured that all of the question's were answered in a professional manner. She was invited to the Studio for a walk thru to showed around and enjoyed her visit!
Rachel, was very nervous and shy for the first ten minutes, after that we broke ground with lots of laughs and giggling that she finally started to relax and enjoy the moment! Here is the final results of her Maternity Session! We can wait til her little one arrives in December!
I am about to explode because she has got to be the most relaxed and sweet little newborn any photographer can ask for!! At 14 days old she still a cuddly little sweetie pie with that freshly newborn smell to her! I swear when no one was looking a sneaked a little kiss to her forehead and cheeks! I later confessed what I did to her Mommy, all she could do was giggle telling me how funny I was!
Can you say Adorable one more time! I am in love with this adorable little one, she has the most adorable chubby cheeks ! She also knew when to smile so big for the camera too........ just when I put the camera down to move her or change a headband ...... Bam she gave me the cutest smiles ever!
I did capture a few smiles from her though that her Mommy is just going to love!
This little newborn was a little tired flying around the purple garden and needed some rest, she came up a little opening in the field and laid her little head down for a quick nap. It was'nt long before she gently awoke and decided she was hungry, crying softly, her Mommy keen to her soft cries , swooped down and scooped up her little newbornand carried her away for some feeding and cuddling time. Emilia had such a wonderful newborn session at the Deltona studio. We had such a fun and adorable time changing her into some cute headbands and tutu's! Here is a sneak peak from our session!
She does make a beautiful little butterfly? Dont you agree !

Could my job get any better? I recently had the privilege of shooting this gorgeous 5 day new little man and the shoot could'nt have gone any better. This little man does belong to my family in a round about way, and since a family member is always someone near and dear to my heart, we lets just say it meant so much to me to be the first to photograph his first newborn portrait. I can not say I did this alone because much of time Mommy and Grandma was right by my side assisting, hands on and very , very helpful! I would'nt have had it any other way. We had the greatest time with lots of laughter and lots of beautiful photograph's were taken!

I was surrounded by friends and family most of time , and one moment in particular made we realize we had too many in the studio when I was able to look behind me , and I had a audience of everyone just quietly watching me settle Noah into place, whew did that make me nervous for about a minute or two!! I then coaxed Grandpa and Dad back outside for some summer fun fishing right outside my back doorstep! This way i could stay focus on wrapping our session up, then we could all go out to dinner together and talk about the adorable pictures we captured during our session!!
Noah does have many sweet photograph's from his session but here is a couple that I can't help but smile when I see it!!
