I currently only offer individual portraits (Senior and Adult Portraits). I also do product and content photography for Grant Stone. Over the course of my career I have photographed dancers, yogis, nudes, boudoir, weddings, events, headshots, families, and newborns.
How long will my session last?
Portrait Sessions last somewhere from 1 to 2 hours.
Will I receive the digital images from my session?
Most of the packages I offer include digital downloads with rights to print. If a package does not include digital downloads, it will be available as an add-on.
How many locations can I choose for my portrait session?
I like to choose one location that provides a variety of views within walking distance. If you want more than one location, let me know how many and where they are so we can discuss the possibilities. It is possible that multiple locations will equal a higher session price.
What should I wear?
Wear something you love. Wear what makes you feel good about yourself. If you still can't make a decision, send me pictures of the outfits you're considering and I'll be more than happy to share my opinion.
How many outfit changes do you allow for senior portraits?
I'm pretty go-with-the-flow during photo sessions, so I don't have an actual limit - however I generally recommend no more than three outfits.
What if the weather is bad or I can't make it to my session?
In the case of bad weather or absolutely any other reason, your session will be rescheduled. Please keep in mind, however, that space is limited - especially in Summer and Fall - so sometimes finding a new time can be a bit tricky if you have a busy schedule too.
What kind of camera do you have?
Canon 5D Mark IV, Canon 5D Mark II, and Fujifilm X100T
What editing software do you use?
Lightroom and Photoshop
How did you get 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 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, with my second child strapped to my chest.
Who is Grant Stone?
Grant Stone is a company based in Baroda, MI that makes men's Goodyear Welt boots and shoes. In March of 2019, I started doing lifestyle sessions for Grant Stone's social media. That progressed into various other works for their website and by the end of the year I was doing all their product photography as well. I am now the primary photographer for Grant Stone and I really enjoy it!
