Michele is an absolutely wonderful photographer. She makes you at ease from the moment she arrives at your shoot location. Her relaxed yet professional presence has such a wonderful effect on the photography shoot. She is great with kids of all ages, patient among the (sometimes) chaos, and delivers high quality images at a prompt rate. I would highly recommend Michele to anyone looking for a professional photographer. Silver Branch photography absolutely rocks!
Each year, we have been absolutely blown away by the way she captures the character and spirit of each of our children, as well as the heart of our family. Her pictures have graced the front of all of our Christmas cards for the last 4 years, and hang in every room of our home. She is patient and encouraging with goofy and uncooperative children, as well as their embarrassed and stressed out parents. Haha! We always know that she enjoys and appreciates our sessions, and strives to capture the candid and subtle moments and expressions that we will cherish as our children continue to grow older.
We hired Michele to photograph our very small, intimate wedding, and we couldn’t be happier! Michele really captured the intimacy of our day. The pictures of our children and their facial expressions were right on with their personalities. The photos of my husband and I were the same — we tear up every time we look at them because our joy is just so obvious in the pictures. Michele was a blessing on this most important day! Working with her was so easy, and she truly understood what we were looking for and delivered! 
I feel so blessed because Michele has captured some very special moments of my family that I am able to look back on and smile. Michele always has great ideas and perfect locations for the photo shoots . She picks places that are beautiful and kid friendly! Not only is Michele an amazing photographer but she is very patient and can roll with the punches when the little ones aren't cooperating ! She is fantastic with children of all ages , knows how to get them ready for a great shot and knows when they need a little break.
We took family photos in the fall and they turned out beautiful. Michele was wonderful to work with and she was great with the kids and making them feel comfortable. I plan to keep using her in the future!
Michele made the entire process of getting family photos so easy! With two babies under two and a dog included in our photo shoot, Michele made something that could have been a hassle into a fun memory. Michele captured great photos of us, many already in frames and in our Christmas card! 
We were very happy with Michele's work! She was very professional (and patient) and I was amazed at how many good shots she got in such a short amount of time.
Michele did an absolutely amazing job on our engagement photos!! She captured our love so perfectly!!! We spent several hours together and she made it so much fun, we would recommend her in a heart beat!
She was very responsive to messages and was able to take my thoughts and make beautiful photos! Michele was wonderful with my daughter and dog...I highly recommend her to everyone!
My work has been featured on Voyage Chicago, a lifestyle brand blog (A Life from Scratch), and I have captured images for business websites ranging from the education field to insurance.
