2022 Year In Review


What. A. Year. I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe everything that happened in the last 365 days in and out of my business.

I wanted to take a few minutes to showcase some of my favorite client moments of 2022 and share them with you!

At the end of the year, I always like to reflect on the things that I did well, and the things that I could do better. This was another successful year as a full time photographer and I can’t wait to see what the next year will hold for Elle Michele Photography.

Here are some stats for what I was up to in 2022


I got to work with over 40 extended families

I was on the beach for more than 75 sunrises & sunsets

Surprisingly, I had over 80 sessions off the beach

More than 50 sessions in the studio

And I got to celebrate new beginnings with over 30 couples.


These collages are some of my favorite moments, but let’s take a closer look.




If there’s one thing you can expect from kids at a session, is that things won’t always go as planned, and I’m here to capture it all.



I had more dogs than ever before at sessions, and I’m genuinely shocked that there were no 💩 moments on the beach.


I was there for those precious little moments with mom,


And some memorable moments with dad, too.


Whether you’ve been married for 1 year or 10, I always make sure to carve out some time for couples.


I got in the water with clients for the first time, and will definitely continue this activity in 2023! And I’ll be sure to always leave my camera bag on the shore.


I worked with some pretty awesome extended families, and I always strive to make sure the outlaws and extended cousins feel included.


I hope you enjoyed some of my favorite moments as much as I did, maybe we’ll get to make some moments together in 2023!
