Welcome to MICHELLE HERRICK | the blog!

I am a fashion editorial and high school senior photographer located in sunny Arizona. I love everything about producing fashion shoots for magazine editorials or the fun & vibrant graduating senior or for clients' promotional/campaign material...this really is the best job ever. Oh, and I'm a mom to 3 awesome kids with an amazing husband and the coolest german short hair pointer dog!

I’m so happy to finally announce the all new and shiny Arizona senior portrait photography site at

seniors.michelleherrick.com

The site got a pretty little facelift…and the good kind, not the kind where you’re unrecognizable to friends & family. ;-)

Here’s a screen capture of the all new splash/homepage.

I took the summer to rethink and sort of rebrand my senior photography business. I want my seniors to walk away feeling pampered, excited, and completely in love with their session and images. This upcoming year is going to be fantastic and I am so excited for all the fun things planned.

So listen up CLASS OF 2015…I have a few more open spots for my SENIOR MODEL REP PROGRAM. This is a great way to get a killer shoot at a SUPER HUGE discount and earn some CASH in the process…total win/win! Email me if you or anyone you know of might be interested and I’ll send you all the details.

In the meantime check out the site and let’s chat if you are ready to schedule your session…this year will go by faster than you know it!

I know I say it all the time, but I had a blast at this shoot! Working with people who you adore and respect and are so genuinely kind and giving really is so nice and doesn’t seem like work at all…just a couple of gals hanging out snappin’ some pics. Perfect-O!

Summer Bellessa has become such a great friend and I’m always so excited to see what she is up to and to hear all about the latest fun things with her GIRLS WITH GLASSES show & blog. I remember the first time I worked with Summer for Emma Magazine. It’s one of those things that’s silly to even say or mention out loud, but for the sake of full-disclosure, I was a little school-girl-giddy excited! I had always hoped I would get the chance to meet her and then working/photographing her was just the cherry on top.

Hopefully the first of many posts working with my dear friend Summer. On deck for today…LEOPARD PRINT. And les-be-honest…I’m a HUGE fan of leopard print so I’m dying over these pics and styling ideas. I have this not-so-secret obsession with leopard print shoes; they are just too easy and can make any outfit look so fantastic!

Enjoy some of my fav pics from our shoot. Track back to the actual article on BABBLE.COM for all the clothing credits.

You know those clients and people that come into your life that you just need to pinch yourself because you can’t believe how incredibly fortunate you are? Well, that was me, again, back in March of this year.

I had the fortunate chance to work with one of my favorite brands and people…Two Penny Blue. I first shot their Spring/Summer 2013 Lookbook and was so overjoyed when they called me up and wanted to shoot again; to be able to work with Marie and her crew again this year was a dream come true. Their amazingly tailored and crafted jackets and blazers are a thing of beauty…all made in the US!

Check out some of my fav shots from that lookbook shoot.

The setup was to shoot everything on a backdrop in natural light as well as get some environmental shots around the area we were shooting…for that more lifestyle feel. We started early in the morning and kept on shooting right up until the last little bit of light was gone. In last year’s shoot we did much the same thing, so for this year Two Penny Blue wanted to incorporate some “Kate Spade color pop” into the lookbook. I loved that description they used because I knew exactly what that meant and what they wanted to do. I had just recently picked up those pink & blue color seamless from Savage and new they would be a great addition to the color palette. I also brought some grays as I knew they wanted to get a few shots to kick start their Fall/Winter lookbook while we were at it.

Lookbook shoots are probably one of my most favorite types of fashion photo shoots…they are fast paced and can be challenging, but so much fun…especially when you have a really great crew that keeps it fun and lively!

No, you’re not seeing double. My recent editorial, Desert Wanderers, was picked up by TWO magazines and now the 2nd one has was just released. You can see the images in Volume XI of Jute Magazine (view full issue online HERE).

As always, credit goes to the team for trekking out to the middle of nowhere with me and trusting me when I say…”we’re gonna get some good stuff here”! :-)

This shoot with Stephanie, Jihan, and Brianna was an absolute BLAST! Us girls set out on a road trip to the middle of nowhere called Gila Bend, AZ…in fact if you’ve driven to San Diego from the Phx area then chances are you’ve stopped in Gila Bend to pee. That’s about how well known this sweet little town is.
