I’m Michael! I am a Portrait and Lifestyle photographer based out of Orange County CA, but love travelling to new locations to work with different clients. I have the wonderful opportunity to turn my passion of photography into a business and loving every minute of it.
I live in Orange County CA with my wife, Melody and our two cats Cloudy and Monroe. Our cats actually have their own Instagram account at @CloudyMonroe. When not taking photographs, Melody and I love to spend time in Disneyland and enjoy looking for new and fantastic restaurants. If you have some restaurant recommendations, we would love to hear them.
