Content creation (words & images)
Creating engaging and unique content for websites, social media, newsletters and blogs is my speciality. Whether you're looking for beautifully styled and photographed visuals (that are yours to use exclusively), written content, or a combination of both of words and images, I'm a "one-stop-creative-shop" providing everything you need to tell the story of your brand, product or business. I also love working collaboratively, so if you'd like me to be part of your creative team, let's start a conversation!

"We hire Michelle to design and manage the content of our B. Grounded newsletter as well as create our Instagram images to promote our monthly creative workshops. We have no hesitation in recommending the quality of Michelle's work, her attention to detail and her professional approach."
Prop sourcing & hire
If you're planning a photo shoot, special event or retail display that requires vintage styling props, chances are I have what you're looking for! The Creative Moments Daily Prop Cupboard is full of wonderfully rustic, charming and highly photogenic collections of antique and vintage linens, bakeware, cutlery, hardware and tools, fine china and an array of bits and pieces to help you create a unique visual story. The Prop Cupboard is open by appointment only.

A few words from.........
Belinda Jeffery, multi-award winning cookbook author, cooking teacher and presenter.-
“Michelle has helped source props for my cookbooks on numerous occasions and always comes up with something just that little bit different which makes the final photographs sing. She has a great eye for detail, and is incredibly professional in all she does. I find her to be a complete and utter joy to work with and can’t recommend her highly enough."
My workshops are designed to ignite your creativity, introduce you to the photo styling techniques you can easily use to create beautiful and engaging images for Instagram, blogs, newsletters and websites, and boost your photo creating confidence. Absolutely no photography or styling experience is required- all you need to bring along is your iPhone (or camera) and a willingness to learn in a fun, creative environment. I can also provide workplace workshops tailored specifically to your business.

A few words from..........
Samantha Smith, jewellery designer, Samantha by the Sea, Byron Bay, NSW.
“I recently attended one of Michelle’s creative workshops and was blown away with how inspired I came away feeling. Michelle radiates passion and creativity and is incredibly knowledgeable about photography, styling and content creation. I am fairly confident on social media, yet I learned so much from Michelle’s session; it was hugely beneficial for my small start-up jewellery line. She has a true eye for design, a warm way with people and gives simple tips and tricks for creating professional imagery to make your business stand out. I will certainly be attending more of Michelle’s workshops and would recommend her to anybody who wants to build their online branding with beautiful visuals and a personal touch."
Leanne Spencer, owner, Spencer St Shoes, Alstonville NSW .
"I've attended several workshops and Michelle has a brilliant creative flair that she shares with the group in a fun environment. My business has certainly benefited from the photo styling skills I've acquired."
Made-to-order styling props
My art range includes custom-made paper flowers, botanical elements and backdrops to use in photography, retail displays, at celebrations and events. I use vintage paper and ephemera, artist quality papers and professional quality paints and craft products to create your order.
