Jason & Karen

Jason and Karen are two of our oldest and dearest friends. We are so happy that they have welcomed a gorgeous, perfect little boy into their lives.

We love him so much already.

It was an honor to photograph you both. Light followed you everywhere that day, and I know in my heart that Hunter is a very special little boy.

Love y’all!

Lena Michelle Photography: The Magical Birthday of My Little Pony, Paisley

Once upon a time, in a magical land that is too far from me, a beautiful little girl was born to two souls that love her more than their own lives.

This little beauty’s name is Paisley Ever, and she is my two year old niece. I fell in love with her the moment I learned that we were expecting a new addition to our family, and she has had my heart ever since.

Two years old!! I can’t believe how quickly time has flown. This little pony’s birthday was magical! I’m so happy I could be there with my family and friends to celebrate this little treasure of our’s! The decorations were gorgeous and so adorable! That’s my Sister, y’all!! The food was delicious, and the company was the best there is.

A huge thank you to Paisley’s Mom and Dad, Aimy and Mike, and her Aunt Vicki, Aunt Amy, Grammy and Papaw!! I had so much fun!

All my love to my little pony, Paisley!! Happy birthday dear one!

Love, our Pony Family 😉

Lena Michelle Photography: Barker Family

Whitney and David have been dear friends of our’s for a long time now. We were so happy to see them when they came to town!

I had so much fun photographing their gorgeous family! The weather was perfect, soft and golden. I could have stayed there all day and been quite content. Thank you for spending your evening with me Barkers! We love y’all!

Lena Michelle Photography: Laidlaw Family’s Whimsical Shoot

“What’s life without whimsy?”
-Dr Sheldon Cooper – The Big Bang Theory-

The Laidlaws are some of my dearest friends, and I feel so luckily to have had the privilege to photograph this gorgeous shoot! Leisha is so genuinely gorgeous, and she is one of the warmest souls I know. She has a smile for everyone, and her hugs are the greatest! I feel like I can talk to her about anything.

Not many people understand my passion for animals. I feel like they are apart of me, but let me tell you, Clint is an animal person, and I love it! He gets it! I have always felt that we share a special friendship based on our awe, excitement and adoration for creatures. He is mischievous, and watching him and Leisha interact always makes me smile. They are perfect for each other!

They welcome a sweet, beautiful baby boy into their world a year ago this month. I love him already! He is the happiest baby I’ve ever met!! I love this cute family!

Thank you, Laidlaws, for so many wonderful years, and thank you for allowing me the pleasure of photographing you.

Lena Michelle Photography: Digital Art

My photography style is clean and natural, but every once in a great while, I will indulge in a different art medium. I had the pleasure of photographing one of my dearest friends and her gorgeous family, and let me tell you. It is one of my favorite sessions! So beautiful! I adore photographing Leisha!! Truly. This image whispered to me and inspired me to have some fun with it. I will be posting her actual, beautiful session very soon, but for now, enjoy a little bit of magic.

*This image was taken in day light with an empty lantern. I painted over it digitally with paint brushes I created.*

Lena Michelle Photography: Gorgeous Camping Date Session

Kaylee, Spencer and Cerberus are the cutest trio, and I’m so lucky that I had the opportunity to hang out and photograph them!!

The weather and woods were gorgeous, not to mention the couple! Watching Kaylee and Spencer, I could easily see that these two are best friends. They have so much fun that it’s impossible not to get sucked in and be laughing and playing right along with them.

Thank you so much for spending your evening with me!

Lena Michelle Photography: Kennedy Ann Hansen

A small peek for those that were not able to attend Kennedy’s beautiful service.

‘What Is This Thing That Men Call Death’

What is this thing that men call death
This quiet passing in the night
‘Tis not the end but genesis
Of better worlds and greater light

O God, touch Thou my aching heart
And calm my troubled, haunting fears
Let hope and faith, transcendent, pure
Give strength and peace beyond my tears

There is no death, but only change
With recompense for vict’ry won
The gift of Him who loved all men
The Son of God, the Holy One

~President Gordon B. Hinckley~

Lena Michelle Photography: Legacy of Love

Said goodbye to angel Kennedy today. It was a beautiful tribute and celebration of Kennedy’s life, full of love and light, just like she is. I love the Hansen family tremendously. I am so blessed to have known them and walked this journey with them for the past year. Kennedy came into my life during a time when I needed her most. Through her constant love, kindness and warm hugs, she has inspired me to be a better person and spread as much love as I can during my stay on Earth. I will carry that with me forever. Even though she has passed from this world, her legacy of love will live on and never be forgotten. Thank you, dear girl, for sharing your beautiful heart and making our world a brighter place. You have touched and blessed so many. Thank you Jason and Heather for sharing your beautiful, angel daughter with all of us and allowing me the honor of being apart of it. You have given me a gift I will never be able to repay. And thank you to Kennedys HUGS for bringing us along on your journey of love. My heart is full today. Until we meet again, all my love and hugs!! xoxo

Lena Michelle Photography: Beautiful Impromptu Portrait Session

I had the pleasure of photographing a gorgeous wedding with my dear friend and fellow photographer, Kelli of Kelli LeBaron Photography. I adore this lovely girl!! Her passion and artistic creativity is amazing. I love photographing with her just as much as I love taking pretty pictures of her beautiful face!

In between shooting times, we had a few moments to stop in a glade of gorgeous, evening light, and I couldn’t resist! The light, the flowers and this beautiful girl made my camera sing!!
