I wanted to wish you and your son a Merry Christmas! I miss your writing (interview) and photography posts on fb, and hope you can find the balance you seek. I was sorry to read in your blog that your work was taking such a toll, but glad to hear you were finding some relief (making your balance). Let me know if you return to fb. You are very talented in your music, writing and photography! Here’s wishing you the best in the New Year!

Hey Michelle!
You commented on my FB page about the Renewal of Elegance. I’m having 2nd thoughts! I am just really feeling very pudgy & saggy & old right now (& waiting for test results on my dog & possibly more $ outlay for her). So with those 2 things, not sure I’m ready for it. xoxo

Hi Michelle,
My name is Kim Sahin and I am going to school for photography at MATC.
WE have a class project due next week and I choose you to be my favorite photographer for a documentary. I have seen some of your work years ago and currently and some of your work has inspired me most out of other photographers so I have chosen you to be my inspiration for this project and to highlight you for my class.
I was wondering if you could send me like 10 of your favorite photos I could use to print 8×10 size to use in my portfolio for this project. I would need a copyright release for those images as well and they would be used only for this class project.
Please let me know if that would be okay.
I like to caputre expressions of people and capture people in nature.
I also love to photograph women to make them feel beautiful and elegant – like your line you have Elegance?
You can send to me in email @
Thanks for your time and your inspiration.
Kim Sahin

Hi Michelle. Love your site. I’m a photographer in New Zealand. I’m working on my website and was wondering if I could use your “Gift” page as inspiration – as I have this urge helping people in my community. My brother passed away two years ago and I know how precious photos are. Thanks. Neal

Michelle Black - July 20, 2013 - 7:56 pm

Neal, absolutely! : ) I am very sorry to hear about your brother.

You are an inspiration to me and have been for years. Before I started doing my own photography as a business I found your site, your words and your creativity. I just got your book about photographing children and am on your blog every so often to see your work.

You’re awesome- keep up the great work and I love to read about your spiritual awakening, your growth is beautiful.

Michelle Black - September 4, 2013 - 4:21 pm

Wow Ashley, thank you so much!

All the best in your adventures… you will do wonderfully!
