Thanks for stopping by! My name is Michele Anliker.
I am an on-location photographer, specializing in natural light portraiture and lifestyle sessions.
When I’m not taking care of my photography business, I am working as a daycare teacher,
exploring the beauty of Michigan with my husband, or volunteering at my favorite musical theater.
I love adventure. The most beautiful perspectives for photo sessions are sometimes found
by getting off the path, standing in the water or climbing on a tree.
If I had to pick one element most important to my photography, it would be light.
I love backlit outdoor images with magical sun flare, as well as
deep shadows that create a moody, intimate feel.
The only thing better than taking pictures of families is hanging out
with their kiddos at the daycare all day. There’s no greater joy than watching children grow
and seeing their personalities develop.
As a photographer I have a chance to document this fascinating process!
Pictures feed our memories with details that are easily forgotten
but hold so much emotional weight. As your photographer I want to make sure that the brand
new look on your baby’s face, the time your toddler refused to wear anything but the color pink
and the radiance of your teenage daughter are perpetuated and that
you may look at my pictures later and be showered with happy thoughts, filled with good memories,
reunited with chapters forgotten and reconnected to the story of your life.
The reason why the reading voice in your head has a cute little accent is
that I was born and raised in Switzerland. In October 2014
my husband and I moved to Michigan with only 4 pieces of luggage and a camera bag.
Images also help me stay connected to my family.
But now let’s talk about you and your next life event!
