Getting Inked

Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph my husband getting a tattoo from Donny Manco, owner of New Republic Tattoo in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Donny is an incredible artist and an all around great guy. If you want a tattoo, or know someone who does, I HIGHLY recommend Donny. He is great to work with, and his art is amazing!

As they say, a picture is worth a thousands words, so instead of continuing to ramble on about Donny's awesome work, let's just show it off, shall we?

Kevin, getting psyched up for his new ink...


Donny, working on the outline (Kevin's other tattoo was done by Donny back in August 2010)...


The detail in Donny's art is just incredible. It was fascinating watching him work!...


Donny, hard at work...


Kevin, looking surprisingly happy and relaxed...


This photo is my favorite of the bunch, by far!...


I loved having the opportunity to photograph Kevin getting his tattoo! So, thank you to Donny for being so awesome about having a camera in his face for most of the time that he was working on Kevin!

I hope you enjoyed seeing the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Welcome!

Welcome to Michele Whitacre Photography's home in blogland! I'm so excited that you are here.

I have always had a great love for pictures, and an interest in photography. Even as a child I was fascinated by taking pictures, and I can still distinctly remember the first camera that I owned.

Over the years, I’ve thought about purchasing a DSLR camera and taking classes to learn how to use it, but life always seemed to get in the way. I was too busy, or the camera was too expensive, or the idea of learning seemed too overwhelming. One excuse after another stopped me from pursuing my dream of becoming a photographer.

Until now.

I finally decided that it was time to make that dream a reality, so I purchased a DSLR camera, took a photography class, read everything I could get my hands on about portrait photography (and continue to do so!), and decided to start Michele Whitacre Photography.

This blog is where I post sneak peeks of client sessions, and other businesses related details.  I will also post some of my other photographs from time to time.

I hope you’ll stop by again soon.
