As a stay-at-home mom of two daughters Michelle Dickinson spends lots of time chronicling their childhood from behind her camera. For Michelle Dickinson Photography, she channels that same motherly affection as she snaps pictures of newborns, toddlers, and older children sleeping and at play. Conducted outdoors or at her client's homes, Michelle's sessions also accommodate engaged couples and families. After their shoot, her subjects can keep their favorite images as digital proofs, custom cards, or prints and gallery-wrapped canvases up to 16"x20" in size.
After the birth of her first child, Maria Kersten-Hakeem began snapping photos as a way to capture each moment.

Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
