"We do not remember days,
we remember moments" - Cesare Pavese

Hey! I'm Michelle!

I'm a lifestyle portrait photographer based in Guelph, Ontario. Elle Chic began by capturing my own exciting life moments; our first home, announcing our first pregnancy, the first sign of a baby bump, my daughter's tiny features. Thanks to these everlasting photos, I can go back in time and remember these moments for all that they are.


I’m a mom to a beautiful girl Marah (4) and a sweet little boy Davis (2.5). When I’m not behind the camera, changing diapers, or cooking for little humans, you can find me at the curling rink or tackling another home reno with my husband Cory. 


Minimalist is my middle name... okay not actually but it’s only natural for me to bring this style into my photography. There’s just something so beautiful about soft light, organic textures, a neutral colour palette with muted toned and simple props. These photos are timeless, these memories are beautiful and these moments are yours.

Thanks for stopping by, I can't wait to meet you!

Michelle at Elle Chic Photography has done both my children’s 1 year photos and I’m blown away at the quality and professionalism every time. She’s easy going, easy to talk to and just all around a great person to work with. Michelle is so wonderful with children, she’s soft spoken, goes with the flow of the child and has such an inviting smile. Both my children have loved working with her.
