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!

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.

I love it when clients call or email me up looking to either create a headshot portfolio or simply add some new shots to freshen up their book. Here are some images from a few of those recent portrait sessions.

This cutie is Summer, a senior from Perry High School. I absolutely LOVED photographing this girl…she had so many great outfits and was totally up for anything! It’s so amazing to have a client that completely trusts you and your ideas and your plan. Her and her mama hopped in my car and we had a great adventure!

Meet Natalie, a senior from Perry High School. This girl was BEYOND sweet, and kind, and so lovely. Even after accidentally locking her keys in her car during our shoot, she was completely graceful, even though I know she was totally freaking out on the inside. The best dad in the world came to her rescue and we continued on, barely missing a beat!
