It’s my privilege to capture who you are at this moment: your dreams, your passions, your personal style.

I’m Michelle Robertson and I’ll be your professional photographer when you schedule your high school senior pictures or family pictures with Magical Memories by Michelle.  You should feel comfortable and confident during your portrait session, so we’ll offer suggestions for locations that you’ll love!  You should look amazing, so we’ll discuss wardrobe choices, coordinating outfits, and even review your choices prior to your session.

Relaxed ~ Fun


Yep, that is what I hear about my sessions and my work.  Of course, to me, it isn’t work.  I absolutely love taking teens and high school seniors out on the town for a fun photo shoot that makes them shine!  My heart skips a beat when I pose families together and get a true emotional connection.  I would love to meet you and find out how to help you create your dream session!

Relaxed ~ I don’t want to be stressed or rushed and I don’t want my clients to feel that way either!  No worries!  I don’t wear a watch and don’t check the time during a photo shoot.  We’re done when I say we’re done or you’re tired of having my camera in your face! Portrait sessions range from 30 minutes to over 2 hours, everyone has different needs but the results will be amazing no matter what!

Fun ~  Well, of course!  Did you know it would be fun?  Who would want to have pictures taken if it wasn’t going to be fun?  I love taking teens and seniors out for a magazine style photo shoot!  You’re the star and I plan to treat you that way from beginning to end!   I love to joke with kids and play!  If kids (or parents) need a break, we take one.  Not only will the final portraits be keepsakes, but my goal is to have the entire experience be memorable!

Colorful ~ I love color! Black & white images are amazing, but having true colorful images that will stand out in your home is a priority!

So mostly the business is “me” but I have some awesome support from my family as well as an amazing assistant! Why do we specialize in senior portraits? Because they’re fun! Yes, you heard me correctly…teenagers are awesome!!!  We love being out on location with teens and their families, showcasing your individuality, capturing moments with your BFF, helping young teens & tweens gain confidence, and bringing the whole family together for a much-needed photo shoot!

We’d love to offer you a stunning, one-of-a-kind experience for your senior pictures that will be easy and fun for you, and stress-free for mom! Let us help you with every step from choosing the best outfits, coordinating hair and makeup, scoping out gorgeous locations, and making sure you look absolutely amazing in your senior pictures!

The East Valley is filled with tons of great locations for senior pictures here in the beautiful Arizona desert! We have funky downtown urban areas, lots of textures, beautiful green areas, and vintage locations just to name a few! This is one of the many reasons I love working teens! We have the ability to move around a lot and get a wide variety from your senior photo shoot!

Hair and make up services are also available, for those that prefer professional services. Your session should be fun and relaxed, so there won’t be any rushing to get you in and out in an hour.  You’ll want to share these images and display them in your home, so there are a wide variety of gorgeous prints, metals, collages, and tons of products you’ll be able to see at your pre-session consultation.
