Traverse City, Michigan fine art maternity, newborn, and child portrait photographer.

Photos by Annelise Sophiea

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website. I am a mother, wife, animal lover, photographer, and a adventurer. Located in Traverse City Michigan and home to some of the most magical photography landscapes in the world. I love to capture a child's imagination through my images. I started photography in 2014 when my twin girls were just 2 years old. I wanted to take better pictures of them and watch them grow through fine art artistic portraits. I then started to have other families ask me to take pictures of their children and it has grown into my business I have today. It has been a lot of work but such an adventure. I have been blessed to be able to meet some amazing people and visit some beautiful locations. I love to travel and see the world, I also scuba dive and ride horses. I love working with children and seeing them bloom during our session. The images I create are not the typical images you see, and I love to give my clients something new and different. A lot of my artistic process occurs as I am editing when the image just comes to life. I pour my soul into each image and provide my clients with timeless works of art of their children to be able to cherish for generations. I hope to provide your family with a memorable session that will provide you with images you can enjoy forever. Your children are only children for a short period of time, do not let their childhood slip by without documenting it. I devote a lot of time and work into providing artistic images to my clients. They are more than just images, they tell a story. They are images to be passed down through generations. I also provide a one of kind high quality full service experience for my clients. I help you with every aspect of your session. I make each session an event for everyone involved. I keep our session relaxed, fun, and professional while documenting your growing child. Please contact me today to start your session process. Thank you and I hope to work with you and your children.
