Hi! I am Michele. I am a local Breckenridge Colorado Photographer. 

I have lived in Colorado or a while now. We love it here and never plan on leaving. My family has a love for the mountians so we moved to Summit County in 2019 after living in Denver for quite a while. We have made our dream come true. 

I love to run, bike, hike, ski, snowshoe, and cross country ski. I also have a love for capturing family and kids photographs. Michele Schanker Photography focuses on getting the more traditional pictures looking at the camera as well as the candid pictures of families interacting or kids playing. This 

Whether you are a summit county local or here on vacation please feel free to contact me to discuss your photography desires. I will help come up with suggestions on the best locations for you based on the background that you desire. 






Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to reserve your session.

Michele Schanker Photography believes in offering both short and long sessions. I have found that lots of families are fine with short sessions on their vacations. All short sessions take places in Breckenridge or Blue River. We will work with you to help determine a good location based on what you desire for your portrait background. All sessions include a print release.
