Michelle Portrait Design is a diamond in the rough in the Twin Cities area when it comes to portrait photography. She took my daughter's senior portraits this year and the results were beautiful! It was very hard to decide which were the best of the best!
Michelle is a total pro. She has a close rapport with her subjects discussing outfit changes and many other little details related to the composition of the shot. Along with the multitude of outdoor settings just outside her back door, she also offers remote beach location shoots. My daughter walked away from her session saying, "Michelle made me feel like I was the most beautiful person during the shoot and that means a lot to me."
Always focusing on the end result, Michelle had us come back for a second shoot because the lighting was not good on our scheduled day for outside photos. Not many photographers would do that!
I also like that when you sign up with Michelle, you get Michelle. Not a photographer in training. I used another photographer for my son's senior portrait and we had multiple photographers shooting his session. The end result was a disaster. We had a hard time finding just one photo that captured his essence.
Senior photos are a big deal for the seniors, especially the girls, and I can guarantee that using Michelle's Portrait Design you will not be disappointed. In fact, you may wonder why you didn't use her for all your family portraits in the first place!
Simply put, Michelle is the gold standard when it comes to portrait photography in the Twin Cities! I give her 5 stars and an exceptional rating.
"Our experience with Michelle's was exceptional from start to finish! Instructions were easy to follow and our viewing process with Jamie was wonderful! The level of service and professionalism from both Michelle and Jamie is unmatched! Michelle goes above and beyond to capture the perfect shot - no matter the conditions! And Jamie turns those shots into exquisite art! We won't have our pictures taken anywhere else!"

DYING at how gorgeous these portraits are! And the quality of the paper and book... Swoon.... Where can I review you guys? (Not that you need the business, but seriously I want to rave somewhere!) Jamie was great, as I’m sure you know.

My heart is beaming with love and happiness! So grateful we connected....cheers to wonderful and heartfelt work!
Last year at this time, when deciding on who to use for my son's senior portraits, we were so fortunate to have been referred to Michelle's Portrait Design Studio. Michelle's natural and easy-going personality made for a delightful experience for both my son and I. Michelle's Portrait Studio is a first-class operation and I would Highly recommend them to anyone, as my son's pictures turned out absolutely fabulous!
