“Where do I even begin? Not only was Michelle super helpful before the shoot, but during the entire hr shoot she had my children totally captivated and had control the entire time. It was amazing! I honestly felt so calm and at ease because I wasn’t the one dancing around trying to get my kids to look at the camera and smile! There were no tears from either one of us and my kids were begging us to do that again after our shoot. Amazing! She’s magical! We just received our edited photos and I started crying. They are absolutely beautiful. Thank you so so much, Michelle, for capturing our little family in such a beautiful way! You truly are amazing!"


"We first used Michelle for our Newborns, which are super tough to do, and she was absolutely amazing. My girls were everywhere all over the place, and Michelle was calm, super sweet, and SO understanding. The pictures turned out incredible and I am so glad we went with her. We loved her so much she did our family pictures a few months later, and I can't express how much we love them. She is so professional and so so great with our kids. Her style is amazing, clean cut, just how I love it!! I would recommend her to everyone. You will love her!!!"

"Michelle is amazing! She has done my daughters birth story, her newborns and our family pictures. With all 3 sessions she did an incredible job and we will forever cherish the memories she captured. I also loved how fast she got the pictures back to us!"


Hey! I’m Michelle,

the crazy behind MayLily Photography. MayLily started in September of 2014 after I spent 3 1/2 years with Fotofly Studios perfecting my passion of helping and capturing genuine laughs and authentic selves. I have shot over 5000 family sessions and counting.

I am an outgoing introvert with the best family I could ever ask for. I have a 5 year old daughter named Mayli, a 1 year old named Maggie, and an amazing 1st Lt. husband, Austin. We have two rescued fur children named Stud and Kiko and they are a huge part of our family. Because of my husband’s job, we have moved around a lot. Basically, our life is a non-stop adventure.

I am a wanna-be cowgirl from the suburbs who takes way too many photos and completely overthinks every single caption.  I believe in God, family, service, frequently changing hair, and lifelong friends. I cannot wait to meet you!
