Michelle S (Street Articles Author)

I am a SAHM (stay at home mom) and I love photography. I have 5 children ranging in ages of 1-13 yrs old, and they are my favorite subjects for my photographs as you will see.

My interests and passions range in subjects from photography to Autism.

I grew up in a large family (by today’s standards) in the Detroit Metro area of Michigan in the 70′s and (YUCK) the 80′s. My first passion of course is my children, but my second passion is taking photo’s of them!

After many years I have finally created a website about what I love to do, Photography.

I am not a professional photographer, I am self taught. I took one black and white 35mm (Yes actual film) class about 10 years ago, and found that I absolutely loved the art. I have read countless articles and books, asked many questions, and experimented a lot with photography, and I want to share what I have learned in a very simplistic way, so that even a very casual photographer will understand and be able to utilize my advice.
