About Michelle

I am the photographer who gets to know her clients. I learn who you are, understand what you love, discover what chapter in your story you are living, and aim to artistically document this time in your life.


I take my time with you and listen to you, in order to build a vision for our time together. I work with you to create a beautiful gallery that tells your unique story. Your images are meticulously edited -turning you and your loved ones into works of art.


My heirloom quality products are sourced from the finest professional labs from around the world, are museum grade archival quality, and are designed to be passed down from generation to generation. My albums and folio boxes are fully customizable and handmade in Italy, and my canvases are handcrafted and meticulously framed and protected from the elements.


It is so important to me that my clients have the peace of mind knowing that they are investing in a memorable experience, in gorgeous imagery, and in artwork that will stand the test of time. I am humbled and honored every time I am chosen to create these sessions, and love to welcome more and more amazing clients to the BACINI Family!

What To Expect

from your commissioned portrait session

I – The Consultation

We start our journey together asking a few questions of one another to see if we are a good fit. We do this through a complimentary 15 minute consultation.

Once you decide that you would like to schedule a session with me, you pay the retainer for the session that you would like. I do not charge up front for images, as I want you to see your images before you commit to purchasing them and invest only in the images that you absolutely love!

I send you all of your documentation and service agreements with me, and begin the design process. I will send you a series of questionnaires and shared resources so that we can easily collaborate on our project.




II – The Design Appointment

This is where the magic begins!

After you've booked and signed the required paperwork, we schedule your 60 minute design appointment. Here, we will begin the collaboration process diving into what your vision is for your session, tell me your story, and share any sentimental or empowering elements to your story. We discuss your home decor and other elements so we can discuss any wall art that work compliment your space and shoot toward that specific artwork.




III – Your Session

The big day arrives! If additional services are included in your session such as professional hair and makeup, masseuse, or lunch, we will have all of that ready for you. Just walk in and enjoy the experience!




IV – Retouching

The editing process takes roughly 4-6 weeks to complete all of your images. If you signed a model release, we will be able to release sneak peaks of your session images on our WEBSITE AND SOCIAL MEDIA accounts for you to see while you wait! During this time, we will schedule your Gallery Reveal and Product Selection Appointment.




V – Your Image Reveal

At your Gallery Reveal and Product Selection Appointment, you will view your completed, fully-edited gallery. At this 60 minute consultation, you will be able to select and purchase the images that you love and the packages that are best suited to your selections. You will have the opportunity to discuss options for wall art, albums, and folio boxes, view and touch samples of each, and select your customizations for each product.

Having a Bacini Photography photo shoot is about way more than just getting amazing photos. It's about an experience. Michelle is a super talented photographer but she is also an event planner. She thinks of details that you would never think of and those details are what separates good photos from pure art. After having multiple family photoshoots done with Bacini, I can safely say there's no where else I would refer people I want to impress and there is certainly nowhere else I would go. I can't recommend Bacini enough. Go book your shoot now!!! You will be so happy you did.

Michelle first photographed our family when my youngest was just a few months old. We loved our photos from BACINI photography so much that we had fall family photos done as well. I cannot emphasize how great Michelle is to work with. She is a natural at engaging with kids and came up with lots of great family poses during our photo shoot (without looking overly pose-y). She was receptive to feedback about what we were looking for from our pictures and surpassed our expectations. It is also apparent from the images we received in our final gallery that a lot of time was spent editing each photo. The color contrast, lighting, and depth of our fall photos is just amazing. When it comes to photography, you get what you pay for, and it's apparent Michelle is more than just a hobby photographer (like so many discount photographers in the area). She is professional, talented, and cares about her clients. I would highly recommend BACINI photography to anyone looking to invest in quality family photos!


Michelle is absolutely wonderful to work with! She is one of the friendliest photographers we have ever worked with! We had the most gorgeous family photos ever...she works wonders with the sunset lighting and her detail to editing is phenomenal! Will be doing more family photos with her!

Michelle was great to work with and super sweet! Her style is very artistic and stands out from the rest. She is also very accommodating and tries to work with your budget, I would love to work with her again in the future!

Bacini Photography recently did our family photos and it was an absolute pleasure working with Michelle! It took us about 2 months to schedule the photoshoot and Michelle was patient with us, didn't push us and understood that we had been busy with a recent move and just family life. She interacted with each of our kids, knew their names before she arrived and took interest in what they wanted to do. The gallery reveal was also one where i needed to change schedules and she accommodated so easily. She spent extra time editing the pictures we chose. My daughter was already asking if we can do it this again next year. Needless to say, I highly recommend Bacini for your photography needs, and more so, if you have kids. Thanks for everything Michelle!

Michelle is an awesome photographer!  She's patient and kind, makes great suggestions for clothing and poses; she's efficient with communication, editing,  processing orders.  Michelle captured our family story--after the recent loss of my husband--with utmost sensitivity.   You will be very happy you chose Michelle and Bacini photography to tell your story in pictures.

Stephanie C.

Michelle did the most amazing work on our family photos! She was so fun to work with, and she was great with our kids. She responds quickly to emails and is very professional. Her finished products took our breath away! We have so many amazing portraits- the only problem is, there are too many to choose which ones to display in our home! We'd definitely recommend her. Her work is truly incredible!

I had my very first boudoir session this year, which I used Bacini Photography for. I was pampered from the time I began to the very end. I’m a very shy and insecure person by nature, but Michelle made me feel comfortable and confident the entire time. I was never pushed to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with, and I absolutely loved how everything was styled. The images are classy, yet sexy (no complaints from the husband), I am in love with every single one. I hope to do another one in the future. If you are looking for a boudoir photographer, Bacini Photography has a natural gift and talent for the style of session. Thank you times a million for such a wonderful experience!

Jennifer G.

It was a great experience to work with Michelle. She got shots we never would have thought of getting. She captured our family in beautiful and unique ways so that we will always be able to remember this time in our lives. Her attention to detail was outstanding. We absolutely recommend her to family and friends!

Kelly S.

Michelle photographed our daughter and her friends before their prom and the pictures are just breathtaking.  They are beautiful and the kids had fun during the shoot.  Michelle is very easy to work with and so very talented and truly an artist.  I really appreciated her professionalism, attention to detail, and level of communication.  We plan to work with Michelle again in the fall and won't hesitate to recommend her to anyone who asks me if I have worked with a photographer I have liked.
