"Working with U Shine Photography has been such an enjoyable and exciting experience. It was so easy to be relaxed and be myself with Michelle. She is great at finding the perfect balance between suggesting poses to try and just letting you do your own thing. She was also genuinely interested in me as a person - not just taking my picture. While we were at my grandparents house taking my senior pictures, she asked me about certain memories I had from the house and from times with my grandparents. It made the session so much more personal and opening up about my family translated into the shoot and allowed me to open up in front of the camera. I loved the shots she took during our session and I loved the time I spent taking them. Also, outside of the great session experience I had with U Shine, Michelle has gone above and beyond any other photographer to provide special perks and treats for her clients. From swag bags and hair appointments to iphone apps and christmas cards, Michelle is always full of fun surprises. She has made me feel so special and beautiful just being me. I wouldn't trade my experience with U Shine Photography for anything and I am so grateful for the relationships that have developed because of it."

"Working with Michele at U Shine Photography has been an amazing experience! I was really nervous about taking my senior photos because I had always been uncomfortable in front of the camera. Michele made me feel completely at ease during my session, and I learned that taking pictures can be so much fun! I enjoyed my session so much that I have even done another photo shoot with U Shine for a hair salon. I could not be more ecstatic about how my pictures turned out. I would recommend U Shine to anyone who wants to have a fun experience, with the sweetest woman, and have quality pictures to look back on. U Shine most certainly tops the charts in my opinion!"

I've known Michele for about 3 years and I've got to say, she's amazing! She's a great mother, has such a carefree and fun personality, and is fantastic at what she does: photography. I totally recommend her for senior portraits (for all of you soon-to-be seniors), and family photos! U Shine Photography is the way to go. I promise you won't be disappointed :)
“I have been amazed by the work from Michele Durham with UShine Photography. She was able to keep my children’s attention and capture the best of all of us. She has a way of making you feel completely comfortable and makes it a fun time. My girls enjoy doing their own thing and she worked with that. I will never have our photos done by anyone else. Not only is Michele very personable, but her work speaks for itself.”

“The great thing about Michele and U Shine Photography is that not only does. Michele have an artistic eye for photo shots that will look great but her laid back, sweet personality gives you a relaxed session that bring out NATURAL smiles. That is important to me, because you end up with photos that "capture" the moment and you actually have fun doing it!”
