Photography Officer


Michelle is the Photography Officer of Texas Emerging Leaders and the Owner, Photographer and Creative Artist of 1044 Photography. Michelle’s inspiration to start her business came from her Sister-In-Law. She saw the need in taking her own family photos. Since it started in 2013, 1044 has taken off.

“I am a passionate photographer who loves to capture images in natural light. I specialize in weddings, family, senior and creative photography. I love creating and capturing the priceless moments to cherish forever. I offer free consultations to provide you with the most memorable experience with me. I offer several locations and provided a studio for my clients who may prefer indoor session.”

Michelle is also in the process of forming a foundation called “Photos for Hope”, where she can take her experience and help those who may not otherwise be able to afford professional photos of their own. Her first project under the foundation is helping Seniors with a 1 day full makeover and senior portraits.

In 2002, she started her work with Comal County in the Adult Probation Department, then worked her way up to District Clerk and ended her career there as the Civil Coordinator. She currently works for the Texas Attorney General as the Child Support Officer.
