Photographer Fort Myers | Laura Michele Photos | About Me

I am a natural-light portrait photographer located in beautiful Southwest Florida, serving Lee and Collier counties.  For a photographer Fort Myers can’t be beat!

So I guess this is where I tell you about myself, and my career as a photographer.  I’m not a big fan of talking about myself, and always hated being called on in class to stand up and “say a little something”. Mostly because I was always the new kid.  Always.  After leaving my hometown of Louisville, Kentucky at the age of 5, we moved about every 2-3 years (Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois) until we landed in Southwest Florida the summer before my freshman year of high school.  Yep, lucky me.  I got to start high school as the new kid, too.  But I’ve been here ever since, and I can’t think of a better or more beautiful place to be a photographer!

I’ve loved photography since I took my first class in high school.  My school had a darkroom, so after we walked around the beautiful courtyard and school grounds taking pictures, we went up and developed our actual rolls of film the old-fashioned way.  I’ve been hooked ever since!  In 2010 I was lucky enough to be able to leave my accounting job (yuck, I know) to focus on my passion.

I love shooting it all.  Families, couples, babies and children, pets, baby bumps and newborns.  Let Laura Michele Photos capture your memories for you!
