ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, I am Michelle Guilbault and nothing makes me happier or more proud than to capture special moments in your life with my camera. I believe in delighting my customers with high quality artistic photographs that capture a fleeting moment in time with loved ones. I specialize in people and capturing relationships: families, kids, babies, maternity and weddings. I have also done photography work for some local schools, corporate headshots for different companies, and event photography for Trump National Golf Club.

I have been studying the art of photography for over five years now. After a 12-year career in telecommunications, I decided to pursue a second career in photography, my life-long passion. I have a B.A. in Computer and Information Sciences and and M.A. in Telecommunications. Great photography is a unique combination of technical and artistic concepts and my degrees have proved valuable in aiding my skills as a professional photographer and small business owner. I continue to improve my craft every day through experience, classes, professional organizations and seminars.

I am constantly looking for ways to bring out the best in the people and families I photograph through creative use of light, finding the best arrangement of people, the fresh angle and am a big proponent of using digital artwork. I frequently use digital artwork techniques to: 'swap a head' in a family portrait to ensure every family member is shown at their best, remove distractions in the background, soften facial imperfections, or provide a special effect, such as black and white with a touch of color. I find it fascinating to learn about other people's stories, backgrounds, and experiences. One of the best parts of my job is getting to know the people that I photograph and being able to give them something I know they will cherish for a lifetime.
