Hi I'm Kay! I am the woman behind the camera, owner & operator of this forever growing business, the one that hand edits all galleries, the one that meets you for consultations & talks you through wardrobe decisions, the one that makes silly noises & does silly dances to make sure your little's are smiling, and the one reminding your significant other to smile because it makes you happy! But besides all that I am just like most of you, I am a mom to a handsome little boy, a dog mom to 3 crazy boxer's, a Jeep owner, and an always exploring always capturing outdoor Florida girl.
I have the ability and experience to photograph just about any type of session you can think of; from Lifestyle Semi-Posed Newborn shoots, to Boudoirs, Weddings, Events, Families, Maternity, Graduations, Couples, Birthdays, and just about everything in between. I began photographing back when I was little with a tiny old Barbie Polaroid, then moved up to a point & shoot around elementary age, upgraded a few times in middle school, finally got my first DSLR in High School when I joined a Photography class & Yearbook class. Once I graduated I took specific college classes for business and photography. After having a stable desk job for years and switching to and from multiple different customer service jobs and then finding out I was about to have have a little one and I still wasn't in love with my career at 22, I finally decided it was time to put my dream into action. After many model calls and lighting practice shoots all over central Florida, I opened a licensed and insured photography business. Little by little I have worked on quality, quantity, consistent editing, collaborating with amazing labs to produce art including prints, metals, & more it started becoming not only a business, it became a passion. A strive to give better, be better, and consistently pushing to produce the best and most beautiful art work I can. A few years later I turned 24 and sold my neighborhood home and purchased a 5 beautiful private acred property with an older style home & separate building that I knew would one day be my own studio. Slowly but surely I added fencing, gating, antique cars of all styles & made sure it would be all accessible for any photoshoot. About a year later I started remodeling the first part of the indoor studio which is now the reveal room, another year came by and I remodeled the second part which is now the boudoir room, and a separate changing room. During that time I continued to purchase more & more unique and multi-purpose props of all shapes, sizes, and worked on growing my social media. After enhancing those 3 years of striving to be better I decided to change the name of that photography business which was formally known as Kay's Captured Moments Photography to what is now known as Kay Michelle Photography, Studio, & Boudoir (Yay!). Currently I specialized in boudoir as I have found my true passion is encouraging mostly women but really all humans that they are absolutely perfect just the way they come! As of September 2022 I am counting 6+ years of business, and will be soon adding on yet another studio and something else super BIG as well! Stay tuned! But since way back then of having a dream to now living this dream, I still strive everyday to be the best I can, continue to grow, and hopefully meet you one day!
