A Dream Come True...

_A2A3554 copy.jpg

When I was a little girl, I dreamt of the places I read about and saw in National Geographic... 

As an adult, I have been lucky enough to experience and photograph a good few of them. 

Now, in an incredibly fortunate turn of events, I am about to be published by National Geographic...

I was in Ireland recently on a family vacation.  On a quiet evening in, I received the news I had been hoping for: National Geographic will publish 6 of my landscape images in their 2018 Beautiful Landscapes calendars.  I had been waiting with bated breath for about 4 months, hoping, praying, and willing them to buy just one image from me.  Just one!  So when the news came in and they wanted 6, I was beside myself. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity just to submit to them, and ridiculously lucky to have had them select my images.  

Little Michele could never have imagined this for herself!  But with a lot of hard work, plenty of traveling and sleeping in the car, some fine people in my life (Sam, Tim, Derek <3 I love you guys), and no small measure of dumb luck, I can say today that I am a National Geographic contributing photographer.  I rather like the sound of that!
