Meet 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, hiking, 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.

A FEW MORE things


Lydia Woosley Photography was established in 2011. Before that, I interned and worked for a photography team for a little over a year. Over the course of my career I have photographed dancers, yogis, nudes, boudoir, weddings, events, headshots, families, and newborns. However, I currently only offer senior and adult portraits.

Since March 2019, I have also worked for Grant Stone - a company based in Baroda, MI that makes men's Goodyear Welt boots and shoes - providing all of their photographic needs.
