about the photographer

Hello, my name is Lydia. I’m a photographer living in St. Joseph, Michigan. I love dark chocolate, black coffee, dry wine, dancing in my kitchen, talking to strangers, and going to the beach with my kids. I am forthright, sarcastic, empathetic, and I genuinely wish I was a fairy!

As a photographer, I prefer portraits to be more than just pretty pictures; I strive to capture the genuine personalities of each individual person, and to make it a fun experience for everyone. I do this by creating a relaxed, care-free environment so you can just be yourself.

Starting January 2020, my primary focus is on Senior Portraits and Headshots. I also do commercial work for Grant Stone. If you are interested in booking a session, send me a message and let's chat!

How I got started

I have enjoyed snapping pictures for as long as I can remember, but I didn’t start taking photography seriously until after my first child was born in 2008. In early 2010, hoping to simply improve my skills, I sought out an internship which gave me the opportunity to work first hand with two very talented photographers. They taught me more than I can ever thank them for and jump-started my career in the photography business. I officially launched Lydia Woosley Photography early summer of 2011.
