This gorgeous room is our shooting natural light shooting space. We love to take advantage of our beautiful 12×12 foot window and original hardwood floors to create beautiful photographs of babies and children. This space is where we photograph our newborns, babies, and little children. Our goal is to make this space very comfortable and relaxing for our clients.

Avery {The Adored Baby Plan Photography Session}

Kind of sad when we come to the end of The Adored Baby Photography Plan with our families. I so enjoy working with each family through out our one year together, and see how much all our babies grow up in one year. I met little Avery at her newborn session, and just fell in love with all her petite features….and when she came back again one year later, she still had those adorable little features. She is a doll.

I truly hope to see her and her family again soon.

**Welcome all of you coming from the giveaway**

Please enjoy the photos and scroll down to the comment section of this blog post and leave your name and email address for the giveaway. Winners will be announced tomorrow. Good luck and thank you for your support!!

In March, I was so honored to go to a photography workshop that focused exclusively on newborn photography. I learned so much in those couple of days about great lighting, specific techniques, and posing. One thing we photographers try to do is nail the shot SOOC…that means “straight out of the camera”. When I returned from the workshop, I saw a friend from high school just had a baby niece and reached out to see if she would be a good newborn model for me. It worked out perfectly. This sweet little girl was amazing, and allowed me to focus and practice all I learned.

I so enjoy photographing babies and children, however….newborns are in their own league for skill level and technique needed and my passion for it. I just LOVE newborns. I believe newborn photography is just as important as wedding photography…this is such a special and memorable time for families to bring in their fresh, squishy brand new baby. This newborn stage fades away so quickly….in just two weeks…they start to change! So if you are expecting a sweet baby soon, please feel free to click on this link here to learn more about our photography services. We would love to work with you and your itty bitty baby this year!

Enjoy the cuteness below!

Michael {Kalamazoo Newborn Baby Boy Photography}

I know I have said it before, but here I go again….I love my job and here is another reason why. I was honored to photograph Kate and Nate’s wedding in late 2012….that was a FUN wedding!! I was thrilled when Kate called me and said they were expecting their little guy and wanted to do our one year ADORED baby plan with me. We had a great newborn photography session with all of them….such a sweet baby boy. I will be seeing them again soon for their 3 month photography session and can’t wait to see how big he will be in just a few months.

Are you expecting soon? We LOVE babies and LOVE photographing babies….please contact the studio at melissa@gregersenphotography.com if you would like more information. You will make our day!!!:)

Mommy and Me Photography Sessions

We are offering our “Mommy and Me” mini sessions…Be sure to schedule yours as soon as possible because we know these are treasured. We want to encourage moms to get in front of the camera and have us capture some fun candid images that you all will treasure for a lifetime. To prove the point, I have a photo I LOVE of my daughter Noelle and I on the flyer.
So here are all the details….
Location is at the studio.  If the weather is nice, we have the option to go outside, but there will be no make-up sessions due to weather…we will simply plan to be inside in that event.  Sessions will be 25 minutes in length with 1 backdrop and 1 outfit.
Melissa can shoot up to 7pm at night, if you would like an after-work session, those do book quickly so plan accordingly.
We are offering the following specials for these sessions:
Canvas will be 15% off and if you would like to purchase all the files from your session (around 10 images) the cost will be $95.
We do require the session ($150 which includes 3 digital file images and a Facebook timeline) to be paid upfront with cash, check, credit card or paypal.  Please let us know which option works best for you.
If you need to re-schedule your session for any reason, those can be done on Tuesday and Thursday only between the hours of 10am-3pm.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
