Michele Celentano Portrait Artist

For the past eight years, the incomparable Michele Celentano has given me the most extraordinary gift each year…incredibly artistic family portraits. Year after year, we anxiously look forward to our special time with her; we pick out our outfits, schedule our hair appointments, and ride out to a location for the shoot. It always amazes me that she captures our family to a tee. There have been times when my twins have non-stop argued right up to the appointment, or it was raining (yes, raining, and she still did our outdoor shoot!), and she produces these beautiful works of art. The walls of my house are filled with all of Michele’s photographs of our family. People who come to our house walk by in awe of her exceptional work. And if being our family photographer each year isn’t enough, Michele graciously takes the time out of her busy schedule to shoot all of Musical Theatre of Anthem’s performances, promo pictures, and individual cast member’s headshots. She is truly a remarkable talent, and I could never imagine a year going by without having the fond memories of our portrait sessions together. -Jackie Hammond

We have been using Michele Celentano as our photographer for 3 years now and have no intentions of taking our business anywhere else. It’s not her quality of work that attracts us but her ability to capture the beauty of our family. I have a hard time seeing the beauty of the burn scars on my body but somehow Michele was able to envision and capture the most breathtaking newborn photograph of my son and for that I am forever thankful to her. I highly recommend Michele Celentano for capturing those special moments in your life. She will do her best to ensure your memories are forever. ~Some Tanner Nisbet

We have been having our family portraits taken by Michele for the past 12 years. Michele offers something a big box photo studio can not! She offers an individualized sitting that is shaped by your family. She interacts with my children like they were her own and not only builds a relationship with you the parent, but the whole family. In our multiple sittings with Michele, she has evoked multiple emotions to capture our family in an organic state. I will never hire another photographer, I fully intend to have her photograph all three of my daughter’s weddings & multiple other family sessions as our family grows. ~Kris Boates

Capturing the love of three generations in a photo takes a special kind of photographer. Michele is that photographer and more! She made everyone feel at ease and with her skillful eye caught the essence of the moment in each photo. Her passion for excellence will live for many years to come as our family photos are treasured as a remembrance of that time in our lives. Thank you Michele! ~Diane Estes-Comp

Family portraits mean everything to me but with nine children, photographing our family has been no easy endeavor. I’ve never experienced a photo session like the one we had with Michele… It was an experience! She worked with us like she had known us for years… She wasn’t rattled at all by the children and they responded to her with complete enthusiasm. Everybody was pretty grumpy and argumentative about doing the session but once we were finished they were in such a great moods and wanted to do it again! We truly had so much fun with her! The kids even referred to her as auntie Michele now. We had an unbelievable epic experience with Michele and now we have these incredible precious memories to last us forever! ~Victoria Palvatos

We had a wonderful experience with Michele Celentano. Having a large family has some challenges when getting family portraits but Michele made the process easy and enjoyable. All four of my children felt at ease and liked their photos. Thank you so much Michele for creating amazing portraits and helping us capture these memories. Our portraits will be treasured and enjoyed for a long time. We appreciate you Michele Celentano. ~Corey and Beverly Jones
