I'm Brooke

the face and heart behind Brooke Michele Photography. I'm an introvert who comes out of my shell when I have a camera in my hand! When I’m not photographing beautiful families, you can find me spending time with my own! I'm happily married with two sweet little boys and two spoiled pups (and two cats that also live here). 

I’ve been taking photos since I was old enough to hold a camera, and turned my passion into a career after majoring in Photography at ISU. I’ve been a photographer for 13 years now and I love pushing my creativity every year to level-up my business for my clients! My style is a blend of documentary and storytelling, with a bit of silly and a lot of emotion.

I have a knack for making even the most camera-shy subjects feel comfortable in front of the lens, probably because I'm just as awkward for photos! I'm sort of like a family therapist, but with a camera instead of a couch. I encourage clients to relax and interact with each other naturally, resulting in photos that will make you laugh, cry, and cherish those memories forever.
