“I will be wild, difficult to find, and impossible to forget.”

-Erin Van Vuren


EXCELLENT | Rated 5 out of 5 on Facebook

“I met Michelle through a mother’s group here in San Antonio while I was pregnant with my son. She did a maternity, newborn and family photoshoot for us and we have absolutely loved her work. Michelle’s knack for photography and her creative eye stood out to me during our time together. She captured unforgettable milestones for our family and did a phenomenal job. Michelle’s talent and passion for photography are truly admirable. I will cherish our sweet photos forever."


“I have known Michelle's artistic work for years. She is incredibly talented and her work is beautiful. Easy to work with, brilliantly creative, patient and kind, her photographs will far exceed your expectations."


“Michelle did a great job. Our baby was a little old to be doing newborn pics and was pretty uncooperative. She still managed to get some great pics that we still get compliments today on. We will definitely be calling Vibrant Cactus Photography for our Christmas pics."
