I’m Michelle, the lady behind the lens at Eyes of Love photography. Welcome to my online home, I’m so grateful you’re here.
All about me:
If you were to sit down and have a chat with anyone who knows me well, they would tell you how wildly happy photography makes me! It’s hard to sum up the feelings of freedom, joy and happiness I have when I’m behind the lens. My passion for photography began long before I picked up a camera. In fact, some of my earliest childhood memories are sifting through my mum’s polystyrene box of family photographs and organising them into albums. I’ve always been in awe of how a photograph can capture a fleeting moment in time so beautifully.
I’m an encouraging and nurturing person by nature, and while I love taking photographs of all occasions, photographing women is what really makes my heart sing!
I chose the name ‘Eyes of Love Photography’ because as women we are so nurturing, caring and loving towards others. We quickly extend love, support and kindness to those we care about, yet we often find it difficult to direct this compassion inwardly. While our stories are all unique, if you’re anything like me I am sure there have been times when you’ve been your harshest critic, thinking and saying things to yourself you’d never dare say to another.
To overcome this ‘self-critical’ tendency, I came up with an affirmation years ago: “I view myself with the eyes of love.”
This is the intention behind my photography – to help people to realise their beauty and view themselves from a loving perspective.
All about you:
Unless you’re a model, it’s likely there will only be a few times in your life when you hire a photographer and jump in front of the lens. And if you’re like most, there’s a good chance you’ll enter into a photography session with equal measures of nervousness and excitement! I get it – being in front of camera can bring about a mix of emotions. But while it’s a vulnerable act, it needn’t be a scary one. In fact, having your picture taken should be a joyous and lighthearted experience!
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a wellness warrior, a glowing mum-to-be, a couple celebrating your love or a family seeking to capture a milestone/precious moment in time, it’s my intention to make the process as fun and relaxed as possible.
You see, I believe you are completely wonderful as you are, right now! Nothing needs to change for you to look and feel comfortable in front of the camera… (Okay, maybe just a willingness to be yourself and have fun!).
Again, thanks for stopping by! If you feel we’d be a good fit to work together, I’d love to hear from you.
