Hello, and welcome friends, I'm Michelle!

I've been interested in Photography for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until we had our son Raylan that I understood the importance and beauty in freezing moments in time. You see, Raylan was our first child but we didn't get to bring him home, he was stillborn at 37 weeks. If it wasn't for the pictures taken, all we would have is our memories to remember and see him. It's so important to have these moments captured to honor our precious time together.

My husband and I now have 2 more children that mean the world to us! Their sweet, feisty and keep us on our toes! Our children have a huge part in R.A.W. Image Photography as well, considering their initials make up the R.A.W. part of the name. We enjoy spending our time together creating many memories with one another, and just living life to the fullest with love and caring. On the rare occasion, when I'm not spending my time with my family, you can find me in my hammock reading a good book, cross stitching, at my local art studio (True colors art studio) or jamming out to some music on an uplifting walk.

I created R.A.W. Image Photography with the simple notion to capture magical moments in life that we don't always have the chance to! As mom's and dad's, grandparents, friends are enjoying themselves they share little glimpses of their souls. When you are in that special moment with your loved ones, the last thing you think about is telling everyone to freeze to take a picture. To me capturing this special interaction is magic. So, take this journey with me and let's create some magic together.
