Michelle Leigh Photography | Knoxville Portrait Photographer | About
About Michelle, photographer and owner:

Michelle is a wife, mother to twins, professional photographer for her small woman owned business, aspiring artist, and overall loves life.  She picked up her first film DSLR almost 20 years ago to shoot for an art project. It has always been her favorite medium of art.  After high school she studied Business Management and Human Resources at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Then while working full-time earned a Master’s in Human Resource Development at Tusculum College. Michelle has a love for serving, helping people, and creating. In 2010 she started training in professional portrait photography with her first digital DSLR camera.  After 10 years servicing people in Employee Benefits and Health Insurance she left the corporate world to pursue her own small business as a professional portrait photographer.  

She takes great pride in being chosen to capture this special time in your life. You’re beautiful now and tiny feet don't last long, so don’t wait until later to capture this time.  Our portraits tell our stories. What kind of story do you have to tell?
