A post shared by Amanda Eskridge Photography (@amanda_eskridge) on

Amanda Eskridge was born and raised in Ann Arbor and is now raising her own family here—a teenager and two toddlers—with her husband. Her Instagram is packed full of natural light lifestyle photography featuring families, children, newborns and expectant mothers. We love her intimate lifestyle approach to photography because it shows real families in real surroundings. Because she doesn’t photograph inside a studio, her images are honest and naturally beautiful.


Amanda Dumouchelle


Amanda Dumouchelle has been a professional photographer since 2008 when she was living in Japan. Now, she calls Ann Arbor home and specializes in maternity, newborn, family and lifestyle photography. Her modern approach highlights the real-life moments more than the stiff poses you often see in family portraits. Her Instagram is filled with laughter, surprises and plenty of hugs.

Amy Kimball has four kids of her own and quickly learned just how important it is for families and children to have room to roam. Bringing that insight into her professional photography, she offers a unique studio experience on 70 acres of farmland in Chelsea. She and her family have turned the land into a dreamy destination for family photos and exploration. The lands include wildflower meadows, a 25-acre wood, a spring-fed pond and buildings in various states of repair.


Lori Page


Lori Page is an Ann Arbor-based photographer but travels to Ypsilanti, Saline, Dexter, Chelsea, Plymouth, Northville and our surrounding communities. Throughout her life, she has gained experience as both a mother and a teacher; she is a member of the Professional Photographer’s of America; she was accepted through application into the National Association of Professional Child Photographers, and she was accepted as a ClickPro. In summary, she’s pretty great. Give her a follow on Instagram—we promise her photos will brighten your day!

Melissa Cozart is a mother, wife and professional photographer specializing in newborns, maternity, family, children and senior portraits. Her flexible style and personality offer a combination of posed and lifestyle portraits in the location of your choice or even in the comfort of your home. Because her passion for portrait photography is heavily influenced by her own children and her desire to freeze her favorite moments, she strives to provide the same for you and yours.


Nichole Haley


In 2006, Nichole Haley decided to hike the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Main. During her life-changing hike, she realized that when she got home she wanted things to be different. If she could hike the entire Appalachian Trail—why couldn’t she follow her other dream of being a professional photographer? Over a decade later, Nichole is living her dream in Ann Arbor along with her two sons and husband. She does all types of work, from weddings to commercial business photography giving you the chance to tell your story, however you want to tell it.
