Where do I begin?! Ok, here goes…
Who am I? Brazen. High energy. Full of smiles. Positive vibe. And, I’m a huge animal lover! So much so, I have a gorgeous large dog who makes my days editing photos at home so snuggly and playful. I also have a great hubby and an awesome son, and together we live in beautiful Cochrane, AB, close to the Rocky Mountains.
My approach to photography is capturing “who” you are. Your story is everything - and I love to tell that story through images! No matter the purpose of your session, my intention is to capture the relationship you have with those in your photos - your partner, your family, your friends, the environment and yourself. It’s about finding your “spice of life” and capturing that very moment.
While being raised by a photo-journalist mother in England, I was immersed in photography from a young age. Yet, after moving to Canada after high school, I pursued other interests: I attained a B. A. in Psychology and also a B.Ed., enabling me to do counselling work with children and youth in schools. I taught Musical Theatre, Drama and Dance to children at various organizations. And, I worked in the music industry for many years as a DJ, playing music and entertaining at weddings, corporate events, Ranchmans Cookhouse & Dancehall and Nashville North in Calgary. After my son was born in 2010, my passion for photography was ignited! In 2011, I founded Michelle Spice Photography, won Calgary’s Capture Wow Stampede Photography Contest, and have been a busy photographer ever since! Now, I am happy to say that photography is my full-time career and I cannot believe that I am doing my dream job. Somebody pinch me, lol!
I would love to chat with you about your photography needs, and I hope we can work together. Thank you for reading! Have a wonderful day! xo
