A Chat with 33 Portraits
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Michelle Lawson of 33 Portraits has lived in the Austin area for more than 25 years. She knows all the great little places only locals know about and can suggest a number of places for your family shoot. She’s worked with hundreds of families, and with children of all ages, bringing out genuine smiles.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Michelle initially became interested in photography while perfecting her own family photos. The more she learned, the more her confidence in her talent grew, and word slowly spread to friends and people in town of this new family photographer.
What do you love most about your job?
I love all the people I get to photograph. I love that they invite me to capture their family and the highlights of their life. I truly think there is something unique and beautiful about each client.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I once had a mother who said she cried when she saw her toddler’s photos. She had feared that her rambunctious son had been too hyper to get any good shots. She was amazed at how wonderful all the photos were, and complimented my running skills, as well!
