I’m Betsy, owner of Betsy’s Photography. For me, photography isn’t about awards or accolades; the highlight of my job is working with you — my clients. I love hearing your stories, seeing your children grow, capturing creative portraits of special times in your life. That’s what it’s about. I want to create images for you — images that will make your heart melt every time you glance at the portraits hanging on your wall. I love designing albums that will require a permanent stash of tissue paper to be stored nearby. Photographs should spur your emotions, your memories. A good photograph reminds you of a specific time in your life; a great one lets you relive that moment.
Now, that being said, you probably want to know if I am qualified to be your photographer, since you deserve the best… Trust me, I am. Just look at my portraits. If my work, and my word, don’t quite do it for you, feel free to read on about the various awards and recognition my work has received. Prior to founding Betsy’s Photography, I studied at Michigan State University and Hope College, where I earned my B.A. in Business Management and Studio Art (Photography). Not one to skip any art education, I also minored in Art History and French. After that I attended countless continuing education seminars and conferences offered by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and its local affiliates. I’m a Master Photographer, Photographic Craftsman, and Certified Professional Photographer; my images have received international recognition and awards (Photographer of the Year, Detroit’s Best of Show). I was even named one of professional photography’s top ten photographers under the age of 30.
But enough about me. I don’t care about how good I can make myself look — I really want to help you look your best. That’s what inspires and motivates me. I can’t wait to meet you, learn about your family, and discover the best way to tell your story through photographs. My goal is for you to enjoy your portraits and images every time you look at them… for your pictures to become treasured, even priceless, family heirlooms!
