We're doing it again !!!!!! 

After a GREAT event and time last year, we're going to have our "Family Beach Session" again, this time, on the West side of the state in beautiful Manistee. If you missed the last one, you will not want to miss this one. You'll have a great time, meet some great people, and walk away with a family portrait that will be treasured for years to come. 

We make it our mission to help families understand and value family portraits. We also understand the sacrifices that our families make at times for us. Well, how long has it been since you've had a great professional one of your family?

So, bring your families, and your camera for another great event hosted by your Professional Photographers of Michigan.

Back to the West Coast! 

Considered to be one of Manistee’s most beautiful beaches, this great spot is ideal for those looking to walk the beautiful North Pier. The Manistee North Pierhead Lighthouse is also located off of the north pier.
