What Clients are Saying

"Michelle is exceptionally talented and passionate about her artistry. When researching maternity and newborn photographers in San Diego, I stumbled across her work and immediately knew she was something special. Michelle has a signature style like no other...working with neutral and organic styling to make sure she can really capture the raw and true beauty of each client and special occasion. Her pieces are gorgeous!

 

Michelle is beyond sweet, very easy and quick with communication, and treats her clients with undivided attention and care. She has a lovely wardrobe that you can borrow from for your photoshoot, and make-up artists that will ensure you look and feel beautiful. Her services really go above and beyond anything I would have ever imagined for a photographer.

 

My husband and I absolutely love our maternity and newborn photos. They are not just photographs, but stunning pieces of art that captured cherished moments in this season of life. We can't thank Michelle enough for her incredible artistry and look forward to continuing to have her photograph our future family milestones. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for the most beautiful photographs in San Diego!" -AMANDA

"If you are looking for a maternity, newborn or family photographer stop here, you've found her...Michelle is simply the best! She is incredibly talented, has a fine eye for detail and has exceptional style. We are blessed to have found her on Yelp in 2016 and don't regret for an instant signing up for 3 sessions as part of the Collective Membership. As my husband said after viewing the prints from our first maternity session, "You can't put a price tag on that". Michelle provides a luxury experience through and through, delivering impeccable results Every...Single...Time! Make sure to take advantage of her optional styling and curated wardrobe collection for mom and child as well as her recommended beauty services. You'll show up to your session feeling pampered and your family will be "put together". Ultimately, you'll be able to relax. Trust me, it will shine through in your photos.

 

As a Mom of two boys herself, Michelle imparts her motherly intuition and fun loving magic into each session. She is amazing with newborns and energetic toddlers. She'll put you at ease while capturing the best smiles and giggles. My favorite part is getting to view the images for the first time in print. The experience is something that is lost in this digital age. Michelle elegantly packages and presents each emotion filled image using soft natural light and neutral organic tones. It allows you to stand still in each fleeting moment, reflecting on the love that your family shares as it continues to grow.

 

My final advice to you is to make sure that you enlist her expertise in putting together a gallery wall and to utilize her framing services to make sure that you don't let the images just sit on your computer. Get them beautifully displayed and enjoy them on your wall every single day. We will cherish the keepsakes that we have received through our work with Michelle Popp Photography for many generations to come. Thank you for these priceless gifts!" - EMILY

I absolutely love Michelle! She captured everything I wanted for my first maternity shoot/newborn photos! She was amazing! Although this was my 3rd pregnancy, this was my very first maternity & newborn photos, I did not know what to expect. But I was blown away and am beyond please with her service. She is so kind & friendly. She made it so pleasing to work with her. And our photos turned out AMAZING. If you are looking for an amazing experience & beyond gorgeous photos I recommend Michelle.

"I can’t say enough wonderful things about my experience with Michelle Popp Photography. Don’t hesitate to book with her. The moments and memories that she captures so beautifully are fleeting and so very special. Michelle has created heirloom quality memories for some of my family’s biggest milestones from on location maternity, to both in home and in studio newborn images for both my babies, and the extra special moments in between. And, Michelle has always been the one to create our annual holiday card as well. The experience she offers from start to finish is high end and yet so comfortable you feel like you’ve been long time friends from the start."

We worked with Michelle for our Maternity and newborn photos and have truly enjoyed the experience! Every picture is pristine and coupled with the lighting, captures such a lovely moment. Michelle is an extremely talented photographer with a great eye for seizing the sweetest moments in a picture. She is very professional, sweet and efficient in having your pictures in hand in a timely manner. We loved every session and every picture and hope to be working with Michelle for years to come, recording memories of the most special times of our families lives.

"As an OBGYN physician, I have seen many maternity and newborn photos from patients and friends/family- the bad (cheesy or forced poses), the good (ehh), and then there are those photos which are breathtaking- Michelle's work is truly breathtaking. Her style is "organic" described as soft neutral colors combined with nature and natural light to allow the focus to to be on the emotions/relationship between the subjects in the pictures. At first I didn't know what to expect as this is such a different style than what I did for my first maternity/newborn photos in which I wore a bright maternity dress and had bold colors. However i trusted in her artwork and vision and the end result was better than I could have imagined. I look at the emotions she captured in the photos and I don't know how, but she captured the joy and love and anticipation of such beautiful moments in my life, my pregnancy and my growing family. The photos are simply beautiful perfection. As a picture is worth a thousand words, you simply need to peruse her portfolio to know what I mean.

 

Logistically, you get what you pay for and her services are worth every penny to have timeless keepsakes from a time in your life that you can never repeat. Michelle offers a boutique service in that she provides client styling- a beautiful selection of clothes for mom, newborn, and young toddlers which definitely helps take the stress out of the process of figuring out what to wear. This also helps you achieve the style/look of her photos which I would describe as "romantic". Last but not least, Michelle is very sweet and humble and it is evident this is her passion and not just a job. I can't thank her enough!" -JOCELYN
