Bonjour! Hola! Ohayou!
I’m Michelle, the owner and photographer of Silvine Photography. I’m an avid traveler and polyglot with a dry sense of humor and a love of all things glittery. My idea behind Silvine Photography was to create an empowering space for women to feel comfortable in their own sensuality and to capture that on camera. Women are gorgeous beings and should feel confident and unafraid to show off that beauty.
In college I had the opportunity to travel and live in different places all around the world. I learned various languages and studied people of diverse cultures and backgrounds. My favorite thing to do was to document the vibrant and unfamiliar customs and styles of the people and places around me. My first camera was a simple point and shoot, but I learned to capture individual personalities. When I returned home to the US, I was eager to learn more, and constantly experimented to hone my skills and form fantasies and concepts into reality. The more I’ve learned about how to recreate what I see in my imagination into reality in a photograph, the more I’ve fallen in love with the art of photography.
Now that I’ve learned so much about capturing a person’s personality and imagination in a photograph, I take a stylized approach to every photoshoot. That means I think details are exceedingly important and can make or break a photograph. I work closely with my clients to ensure they look and feel amazing the day of our shoot. I’ll work with you to create the perfect photo. My goal is to not just be your photographer, but to help you have fine art images that you will cherish as a reflection of yourself.
I hope that from this brief introduction of myself, you understand that I am not just a photographer, but an imaginateur and creative director. Let’s meet up for coffee and discuss how you want to look and feel in your photographs!
Warmest Regards,Michelle Burroughs
