Welcome to my dream life and the One Eleven blog. I'm Michelle Little, a photographer who has been afforded the luxury of doing what I love and calling it work with my husband Matt. Take a look around and enjoy my work and my wonderful dream life.
From the moment I first started taking portraits for high school senior girls, I saw the lack of confidence in themselves and the impression they had of what beautiful is supposed to look like based on what they have learned from society.
