Welcome to
Palmetto Snapshots

Though I love all opportunities to capture authentic moments, couples, families, and boudoir are my specialties here in Charleston and Folly Beach, SC. When I’m not hyping up my clients from behind my camera, you can find me wandering the streets aweing over our beautiful historic architecture, sampling the area’s vast array of eateries, or catching some sun (and with any luck some fish) on our family’s skiff.

I am a sunlight chasing, animal squeezing, home chefing, garden digging, crystal wearing, aquaphile. Growing up in such a cultured and diverse community has had a huge impact on my style. I consider my work to be warm, eclectic, and genuine-- much like the wonderful people I meet in my line of work.

Hi, I;m Michelle

- Christina G. 

“I remember when I first met Michelle, it was the start of taking my baby's pictures from 6mons to every holiday theme. I love how she captures your moments even when your off guard which are the best. When she proposed boudoir sessions, I've always wanted to do one but wasn't confident and was nervous at the time. Michelle is amazing. She made me feel comfortable and she will even be your hype lady. I love I can bounce ideas of any kind of session with her. From theme, to outfit, to props and locations. With my boudoir pictures I have to do a double take sometimes cause I can't believe that that was me she captured. She is fun, creative, well-rounded and artistic. She is my one and only photographer and became a good friend of mine. Can't wait until my next session.”

"Michelle is absolutely incredible to work with. She truly captures the emotions of the moment. She’s always willing to work with my ideas as well as incorporating her own image to create an incredible session. Every. Dang. Time. I’ve cried many times opening galleries. She’s truly become a friend. I can’t wait to utilize her for sessions for many years to come."

"Michelle is literally the best!! We have used her for 3 different photo sessions and every single one has been perfect. They pictures are always amazing. Her prices are so incredibly reasonable for the quality of her work! She is the most professional and very timely to work with! She’s great at communicating timelines and expectations after the sessions and will even help with styling for them. Her mini sessions (if you can snag a spot!) are such a value and always adorable!"

“Michelle is amazing to work with! From one on one photo shoots to full on extended family photo shoots she does it all. She is great at making you feel at ease and like a natural behind the camera. If you have a vision for what you want your photos to be she makes it happen. I love having her as my photographer.”
