Michelle Lyman Photography & Design is a modern environmental portrait photographer of children, family & senior pictures, wedding and fine art photography in High Point, NC serving the Piedmont Triad area.

I am a paint-slinging, picture-taking, clay-squishing, graphic-designing, homeschooling mom of two with five furbabies and two turtles, and wife of a VERY patient man. I have over 20 years of visual art creating and instructing experience tucked into my vintage train case turned camera case. Whether it is my personal photo projects inspired by a favorite story, or creating a keepsake portrait while a senior is telling me of their dreams for the future, I LOVE creating art as a photographer!

I am here to help and inspire you to catch those wonderful, everyday moments of life that are so often overlooked yet are the warmest and most precious memories later in life. 

Whether you have a young family trying to grasp just a snippet of the childhood that seems to fly by, a shop owner that needs product photographs that your patrons can truly relate to, a senior high student wanting to live it up for the last round of portraits that really showcase YOU before going into the adult world, an “everyday” woman wanting a photo that makes her feel as beautiful as she is, but may not see it everyday, or a couple in love and want a storybook to showcase to their future children…

I want to be the one to capture and create that memory for you with help every step of the way.

I like to incorporate little hiding spots, favorite places, and other sentimental and memorable hints into my photography. I am always trying new things to create the perfect artwork, while also using my years of experience to help mold it into shape. I don’t have to capture a smile in every portrait; I would rather get something that is authentic, although I do love to laugh… and you know it is contagious!  I get some classic and more traditional shots, but I want to showcase your family and their personality in real life. My love of typography, the art of letters, has been known to make an appearance with the perfect quote to finish off a one-of-a-kind fine art portrait.
