Merry Christmas from Kari Douma Photography

Merry Christmas from Kari Douma Photography!

 

We love the holiday season! Therefore, of course we wish you a very Merry Christmas from Kari Douma Photography. Likewise, we love to create memorable moments for you to capture the joy of your family. Whether your kids are 2 or 20, we think an annual Christmas portrait is the perfect way to document the end of the year. Finally, as you prepare for the New Year, you’ll have a keepsake to remember how cute, silly and sweet your kiddos were in 2018. We had so much fun capturing these images during Daxton’s 4 month session! {His mom is so creative, she designed the set herself!} We know he’ll grow so much by next Christmas, his mom and dad will be so happy they took the time to create these memories this year.

 

Merry Christmas from Kari Douma Photography!

 

We cherish our clients, and we love to photograph families like this one below!  We have been honored to capture their milestones since the day they were married! Each new baby brings big changes, and it’s a joy for us to create once in a lifetime memories as they happen. These little ones grow so quickly. Before we know it, they are off to school, then we blink and they’re in high school. Graduating, and off to college! We have first hand experience in this area too, and we love to share our experiences with our clients. The families we photograph become treasured friends over the years, so we love to see them return year after year! Likewise,  we hope to see you back at the Studio in 2019! We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Kari Douma Photography!

 

Merry Christmas from Kari Douma Photography!

Thea is 8 months! Grand Rapids Newborn Children’s Photography. Thea’s mom and dad brought her back to our studio in Downtown Grandville for her 8 month old session. Because her parents joined our Bebe Premiere Plan, which includes not only newborn and one year sessions, but also 4 month and 8 month sessions! Therefore we can capture all the milestones of Thea’s first year! Since she’s so cute and full of expressions, there was lots of cuteness to capture!

Studio Newborn Photography

Studio Newborn, Infant and Toddler Photography at Kari Douma Photography in Grandville

Newborn Studio Photography

We love babies! We realize everyone says that, but it’s really true for us! Our babies are all grown up now, ages 13-23. Therefore, when we have babies come in to the studio, we put all our years of motherhood to the test. We make sure you and your little one feel comfortable, so we can create those precious portraits you will treasure forever. So when you look back and wonder how those years went by so quickly, you’ll have beautiful portraits to help you remember these fleeting days.

We’ve seen every personality possible! Sweet smiley babies, even colic-y newborns that cry. So far we’ve never met a newborn that we can’t calm and cradle to sleep. Are looking for a nice, quiet studio, one where you’ll have time to sit down and unwind on a comfy couch? If so, we’re the studio for you! We’ll cuddle your baby until they’re relaxed and ready for us to create beautiful photos!

Newborn Photography

We have lots of options from full newborn sessions (2 hours) to a quick Wacky Wednesday 20 minute session to capture those older baby and toddler smiles. We also have a Bebe Premiere Plan which includes 4 sessions for baby’s first year. Newborn, 4m, 8m and 1 yr sessions, including extra discounts and bonus gifts! You can contact Kari@karidouma.com for more details. See more of the cute babies we’ve photographed this year by watching a slideshow here.

We love to watch babies grow over the years right in front of our eyes (and camera) as we photograph each of their birthdays after the first! There’s no greater joy for us than to document the years as each family grows. A few we’ve even photographed from birth to high school graduation!

Newborn Photography

We know there are lots of you out there looking for a studio in the Grand Rapids or Grandville area. Search no longer, we’re here and ready to photograph your newborn, infant, toddler or older child! We would love to meet you and get to know you, and we’d be honored to tell the story of your child. We’re booking indoor or outdoor sessions for summer now, so contact us today 616.437.5603

Family and Children: Studio and Park Sessions by Kari Douma Photography

Hello! If you’re just finding our website… welcome!  We are Kari Douma Photography, a professional portrait studio located in West Michigan, in Downtown Grandville. We specialize in family and children photography, as well as weddings and seniors (and newborns too!). Ok, we love to photograph pretty much everyone 🙂 We offer private studio sessions, as well as at local parks, downtown, and beaches along the lakeshore. Basically, all of West Michigan!

These two cuties came to our studio in Grandville for some updated family portraits! (Don’t you just want to squeeze those cheekers?!?) So adorable 🙂 We appreciate the privilege it is for us to photograph your sweet kiddos over the years! We love to watch them grow and change right before our eyes (and cameras).

Family and Children Studio and Park Sessions by Kari Douma Photography
We also encourage families to have annual family portraits taken too! Lots of parents are great about photographing their kids, but not always as eager to be in the photographs themselves. You know what? Life’s too short to not be photographed! Don’t wait (for whatever it is you’re waiting to “do” before you have that family portrait taken). You can’t get the years back, and some day you will look back at how marvelous you looked “way back then” and wish you had a gorgeous portrait to prove it!

That’s one of the reasons why we offer a complementary family session for the seniors we photograph! We want to make sure that our senior’s don’t just have a great senior portrait on their parent’s wall before they head off to college, but also have a beautiful portrait of their family to take with them when they go.

When they’re little, the days are long… but the years are short. (Believe us, our kids are growing up faster than we can believe!) Capture these moments today. Before we know it, these cute little guys will be graduating and heading off to college!

Family and Newborn Sessions… Welcome Babies Max and Isaac!

Eizans Family

 

We are were so excited to photograph two of our favorite “growing” families this winter! We are thrilled when a family we’ve photographed over the years calls to let us know they will be welcoming a new baby! When we schedule a newborn/family session, we like to allow lots of time, especially if there are siblings we’re going to photograph too. We want to make sure mom and baby are calm and comfortable, and brothers and sisters have time to re-acclimate to our studio before we get out the camera and our lights start flashing.

We think the most important part of building a relationship with a family is making sure you can trust us, not just to document the milestones, but to create the best experience we can for you to have your new baby photographed. We want you to be happy with the entire session, not just the end results (so you’ll want to keep coming to see us over the years as your family grows). We look forward to seeing you and your children, because you allow us to be part of some of the most intimate and precious moments of your new baby’s life… we also strive to be a place your kids are excited to go when it’s time for a new family portrait!

You want your photographer to capture the precious moments between the people you love the most in this world, and we take that job seriously. We cherish the relationships we’ve built over the past 10 years with the families we’ve been trusted to photograph! With each newborn baby, as each family grows over the years, your families become like family to us too. Congratulations to the Eizans Family and the Parniske’s on their beautiful babies! We celebrate with you, and thank you for allowing us to capture these memories for you.

Parniske Family
