About Me

Born and raised in Orlando, Florida, I traded in sun-kissed skin and flip flops for overcoats and snow boots after falling head-over-heals in love with my husband, Eric. Having spent the majority of his life in Fort Wayne, it was only natural that once I graduated from college that I head to the Midwest to live my fairy tale life. Fast forward a few years, two houses, one dog and the birth of our two, oh-so-amazing children, Elliot and Reese, life could not be more perfect.
I’ve been a photographer for a few years now, but have been unable to dedicate myself to the profession full-time as I spent my days inspiring future generations as an elementary school teacher. The birth of my son in November 2011 quickly shifted my priorities and to be quite honest, especially now with two kiddos, I cannot imagine missing the little moments in our kids’ fresh (and quickly changing) lives.

It’s when the line between fantasy and reality begins to blur that real moments are snapped. Defining moments are not always big and they are not always obvious, but with the right eye, they can be captured forever.

Michele Snyder Photography specializes in capturing real moments for real people. Based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, we provide clients with classy, whimsical and candid photos of their special day – even if it’s ‘everyday’. Specializing in newborns, babies/children, families, portraits, couples, special occasions and more, we understand that each client has a different story to tell (and we’re excited to tell it!)
