Getting Started

Our journey begins with a personal consultation, where we get to know you – your style, interests, and what makes you unique. This is a time for us to connect and brainstorm ideas to ensure your senior photos reflect your individuality. Think of it as a friendly chat where we lay the foundation for a photo session as unique as you are.

Location Choice

West Michigan is our canvas, with its diverse landscapes offering the perfect backdrop for your photos. From the urban charm of Grand Rapids to the scenic tranquility of our many beautiful parks, we scout locations that resonate with your personality. Whether you dream of a beach sunset, a dreamy open field or a vibrant cityscape, we’ll find the perfect spot for your shoot.


The photoshoot is where the magic happens. It’s more than just taking pictures; it’s about capturing your spirit and the excitement of your senior year. I’ll guide you through the process, ensuring you feel comfortable and confident. My goal is to make this experience enjoyable and memorable, resulting in photos that you’ll cherish forever.

Image Editing

After our session, I’ll carefully edit your photos to bring out their best qualities. This is where I’ll add my artistic touch, enhancing colors, lighting, and details to reflect the mood and style of your shoot. My editing process is thoughtful and meticulous, ensuring each photo is a work of art that celebrates you.

Package Options

While I offer one standard package for seniors, I realize that some seniors may want a bigger or smaller (I’m looking at you senior boys!) package. I am happy to work with you to create your own package, ensuring you get the most out of your senior photography experience with me.

“We can’t say enough about the great experience we had working with Karla Michelle Photography for Gabbie’s senior pictures.
She was so fun, creative, and affordable.”
