"Over the years Michelle has done thousands of photos for me, both personal and for my business. She has done my horses, my events, my dogs, my kids, as well as family shoots and fun shoots with friends! I have asked for a lot of things and she has always done everything in a timely and very professional manner. Everything from calendars to Christmas cards! The photos she takes are exquisite! The variety she offers in products is amazing as well. Everything from photo prints to metal prints. Everyone that sees her work is impressed. I am so thankful to have found an amazing photographer that is so easy to work with and gets the work done so quickly!"

"I have had three photoshoots with Franke Photo Design since owning my Friesian mare. Each time Michelle has worked her magic. I always love every single photo upon receiving my proofs, and it is extremely difficult to find my absolute favorites. She has always shared my proofs short after my sessions as well. During sessions, she always provides her best input in capturing our best moments. She definitely has an eye for the perfect photo. When it comes to lighting, positioning, and scenery, she is amazing. She’s extremely patient with the camera, which makes the experience so enjoyable and amazing. I am looking forward to another annual photo shoot this year with the sweetest photographer I have ever worked with."

"In the 14 years of owning Voltaire, I have never had professional pictures taken, it is something I had thought about doing but put off.
2020 made many of us learn and realize a lot, and one of those learnings for me was, the world can turn over in an instant so do things that matter and you’ll be happy you did five, or more, years from now. Because of these images, I now have my horse at age 22, and me at age 28, frozen in time forever so now when I am old and grey I get to reminisce on the horse that was a part of making me the person I am today.
I always knew I never did Voltaire any justice when snapping pics of him on my phone. These images capture the silver dustings (aka grey hairs lol) time and a good life has given him. They capture the muscles, veins, and bones that make up his body and show his strength.
Catching these creatures behind camera is a gift, and doing it professionally is the only way to truly capture every detail of their beauty. Thank you again @franke_photo_design for the talent and time."
