We really looked forward to getting our family pictures done, only to discover when we got there that the business had moved to Mackinac Island with no warning on their website. They are gone, so don't look for them in the city!

Tucked inside a bookstore you'll find a very kind photographer who goes out of his way to take great photos and to be personable and genuine. Great photo that will be a lasting memory for our family!

They were steady to busy when we were there, a line of about 2-3 family's. They don't let you pick what you wear or pick what you want to do. They give you one outfit & make you pose where they want & how they...More
