CBM Photo | Carmen Michael bio picture
  • That's me on the left, I'm Carmen! I live in Birmingham, Alabama with my amazing husband, our two children Walt & Frances, along with our Jack Russell Terrier, Heidi. I have a B.A. in Studio Art/Photography from the University of Alabama, and I founded CBM PHOTO in 2008.

    My love affair with photography began with a hot pink 3x5 camera. As a little girl, I would pose my friends, toys, and dogs with the goal of getting the perfect shot. Twenty years later I'm still shooting away, always on the quest for the next ideal shot. What else am I (almost always) on the lookout for? Taco Casa, golden hour lighting, newborn props, sweet tea, Walt's lovey, Heidi's collar, Ikea, a parking spot, inspiration, The Office episodes, and John Mayer.
