Rusbasan Family

I’ve been home from New York City for about 12 hours now, and I didn’t get this post prepared before I left, so it’s going to short and sweet. Beth was kicking herself for putting off their family portraits till so late in the year, but I have to say it worked out quite well! The Read More

Reid turned TWO | St. Joseph, MI

I’m pretty much caught up with blogging about the photo sessions I have done since I moved to Michigan — I still have a few random sessions that I haven’t posted about, but I now have my first official photo session of 2017 to share with you today! I’m trying not to feel bad about Read More

Bosch Family Portraits | Stevensville, MI

A couple months earlier I had the pleasure of photographing my friend, Susannah, as one of four free portrait sessions that I offered over the summer. After that, she decided it was time to get portraits of her whole beautiful family.  It was oddly warm for a late October day in Michigan, but it worked out Read More

Underwood Family Session

Many years ago, a photographer/mentor told me a story about how he had the opportunity to shoot a wedding on a cruise ship. He was really excited about it and fully confident that he would knock it out of the park. When the big day arrived, he stepped on board and took some time to Read More

Heyn Family Session

I would like to start this post with a little story: Just over 4 years ago, I was brand new to this town and didn’t know anyone. I had to take my van to the Honda dealership for some minor recall maintenance and what was supposed to take 30 to 45 minutes ended up taking almost Read More

Fytczyk Family (2015) | Kalamazoo, Michigan

If you’ve been following my blog you may already know I am digging through photos and memories to share with you what I have done since I moved to Michigan. This was in December 2015: I was still taking a break from the photography business but I was finally beginning to toy with the idea Read More

Gresham Family (2015) | Downtown St. Joseph, Michigan

Four years ago, yesterday, we moved from Florida to Michigan so my husband could start his new job. It was a very exciting time for us! An awful lot happened in the next two years. And by ‘an awful lot’, I mean absolutely nothing related to photography. I closed my photography business when we moved Read More

Mother Daughter Session | St. Joseph, Michigan

I don’t think you have to know me for very long before you figure out how much I love snow. Maybe it’s because I grew up in Florida and never got to experience the soft, fluffy bliss of freshly fallen snow; or maybe it’s because my spirit animal is a mamma Polar Bear, I’m not sure. Read More

Gresham Family (2013) | St. Joseph, Michigan

I officially started Lydia Woosley Photography in Panama City, Florida shortly after April 2011 when, simultaneously, my second child was born and the photography and design company I worked for basically vanished. It was a bit ambiguous, but a good circumstance nonetheless. The owners of Frshnk Photography and Design were offered jobs they could not refuse Read More
