Lake Michigan Family Photography Sessions

{Saint Joseph, South Haven, Saugatuck Michigan}

If you are planning a wonderful trip to Southwest Michigan this year, then know you are in for a treat. Lake Michigan is almost like heaven on earth in the Summertime, and the perfect vacation spot for families to come and enjoy much needed time together and create amazing memories. In the midst of all that fun is where we come in! I am happy come out to Lake Michigan and photograph vacationing families and create images that we know will be loved and cherished for a lifetime!! We service the towns of Saint Joseph, South Haven, Saugatuck Michigan.

Meet the Photographer….Melissa Gregersen

I have been photographing vacation families at Lake Michigan since 2011 and LOVE meeting families from all over the country and create gorgeous photographs that they will cherish for a lifetime. I have a wonderful team that works at the studio with me to edit your images and make sure they look great before we send them to you.


Here are the details on how to book a session:

All sessions are $695

They include up to 45 minutes of shooting time by Melissa and edited digital images of the session. Edited images are a big deal, we will go through each image and make sure your skin is soften and wind blown stray hairs are taken care of! We have a high standard of excellence and make sure you have a gorgeous finished professionally edited printable image that you will love!

My goal is to make these Lake Michigan photography sessions are quick and yet casual as you are all in the vacationing frame of mind. đŸ™‚ We have a pretty quick turn around time of 2 weeks. Images will be emailed to the main contact person in your family. You may then all copy and share those images as you wish.

We also will give you a direct access to a professional printing lab we recommend to ensure you are getting high quality prints that look just like the pretty digital images on your computer. A normal session yields approx. 35-40 images just depends on how many people are in a family session.

I shoot and aim for quality over quantity.

A couple tips to consider:

We only schedule morning sessions at 8am to get your session in before the Summer sun is to high in the sky. This is important because it gets warm fast, and people squint and no one wants a family portrait with squinty eyes. We also schedule evening sessions 30 minutes before sunset if you would like the sunset as your backdrop. Please note the sun sets late in the Summer (around 9:30pm) so this is not the most ideal time for families with little ones, we suggest you book a morning session. Most vacationing families chose morning sessions because they have little ones, and also its nice to get up knowing you are getting ready for a photo session, and then you are done around 10am and have the rest of the day to relax and enjoy yourselves.

Feel free to click here to contact us with your dates that you will be vacationing, how many will be photographed and the location/town you will be staying at that week.


Here are lots of examples of images I have taken. Please note images are taken at either St. Joseph, Saugatuk or South Haven beaches each beach setting offers unique backdrops….but all have the gorgeous Lake Michigan!
