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!

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.

Over the course of my career I have photographed dancers, yogis, artistic nudes, boudoir, seniors, weddings, events, headshots, families, children, and newborns. While portraits still hold a very special place in my heart, my primary focus is currently on commercial and product photography.


Since March 2019, I have 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. I love the relationship that I have developed with this small business and feel so lucky to be part of their team!
