My buddy, Yvonne and I collaborated a gallery opening to honor our beloved friend, Alyssa. Alyssa and her unborn daughter, Sutton were taken to early on a cold December morning in 2014. I struggled thru grief and heartache and inside that sadness, Mother & Daughter was created. With encouragement from each other and our loved ones, Yvonne and I did it!
Thank you WHCC & Perfect Posters for your generous sponsorship. Thank you Q.arma Building for your encouragement and the experience. Thank you Wild Acorn for seeing a vision and contributing your woodworking talents. Thank you to everyone that participated in the creation of Mother & Daughter, without you my story would have never been told. And thank you to all that attended, we are so humbled by the kindness and feedback from you all!

I want to be a photographer.
I am setting my new year’s resolution early. I am going to be a photographer full time in 2013 if it’s the last thing that I do. No more of this “working for the man” business. It gets you know where. I have been with the same company for 5 years and where I am? Sitting at a desk wishing I was successful and happy.
I know what I want and I am pretty sure I know how to get it. With time and drive I will succeed. I want to be an out side the box portrait photographer, I want to work with small businesses to update their photos for their web sites and I want to shoot food for menus.
I love food photography. I think I love food photography more than I love food. All things that you photograph are a memory but photographing food is a delicious memory, a memory that will make your mouth water, you remember the smell and sometimes you can remember the person that served it to you.
This is where I will start.
Hello, my name is Michaela Soderlund and I am a professional (food) photographer.
Just you wait and see.
