I’m Michele Celentano and I’m a portrait photographer.

As a photographer, wife, mom, educator, public speaker, entrepreneur I am genuinely happy human being. I believe what I put out into the universe comes back to me tenfold.

Positive Energy Out = Positive Energy In

I’m still insanely in love with my husband of ten years and I’m a proud mom of an incredible smart, loving, funny, soulful daughter, Anna. She is the light of my life and was the greatest unexpected gift I have in this life.  I also have 2 beautiful bonus daughters. A big part of my soul lives in southern Italy and traveling is one of my greatest joys in life.  Meeting new people and experiencing new cultures make me a better person and artist. Cooking for a house full of company with a glass of my favorite chianti is how I spend my dream Sundays. My love of photographing families stems from a deep love of my own family.  I grew up in Brooklyn NY with my mother and my grandparents.  The relationship with Anna and Anthony (my grandparents) is what drives me in my portrait work.  I adored both Nanny and PopPop – I lived with them until I was 13 and the only thing I am missing in my life is portraits with them. Family and especially generational portraits are something I am incredibly passionate about. My mission in my career and business is to make sure my clients never say they wish they had more portraits with the people they love the most
