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 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!

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).

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!

Grand Rapids Executive Business Portraits by Kari Douma Photography

Grand Rapids Executive Business Portraits by Kari Douma Photography… we want to help you add a great image to your name by creating business portraits you are proud to display on your company website and social media.


We have been photographing business executives and creating professional heashots for years now (it’s our job to make you look good!) No one wants to look at an unattractive portrait every day when they open their email or webpage, so if you don’t love your corporate headshot, come see us to let us create a portrait you will be proud to share! We have lots of options from a quick 15 minute head shot taken at our Studio on your lunch break, to full service executive portrait for your entire office on site, or in our studio in Downtown Grandville.
If you’re looking for a quick updated professional head shot, call us to schedule a 15 minute appointment (you can even come in during your lunch hour). We’ll give you a few options for background and poses -more formal and more casual- and you can choose your favorite image on the spot and be on your way (and still have time to grab lunch)! 

If you’d like to take a little more time to create a few different looks with several outfits and different backgrounds, we can set up a traditional executive session and allow more time for more options.

If you are looking for a photographer who can produce corporate head shots for your entire staff, we do that too! We will bring our lighting equipment and backdrop to your location to offer full service executive portraits right in the convenience of your office. Your employees won’t need to miss productive work time (or miss a lunch hour) since they can be photographed on site in a matter of minutes. We also offer the option of photographing your employees in practical daily scenarios if you’d like a sample of causal images to display on your website for clients to get a feel for how your offices works on a daily basis.

No matter what type of Business Portraits you’re looking for, we’ve got a solution for you. Contact Kari at 616-437-5603 (or today for details. We can set up a plan and customize it to meet the specific needs of your business.

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.
