Senior Testimonials

When we were first looking for someone for Adam's senior photos your name was suggested as someone who could bring out the character of our son who is typically quiet.  Kari did an awesome job with Adam's photos and did a family photo for us.  That is why several years later we are back with Morgan's senior photos and a new family portrait. You've both made us feel at ease with the entire process and we're thankful you were able to capture special moments in our lives through the memories you've been able to help savor.   We are impressed with the quality and professionalism you're constantly providing.  Thanks!

Dear Kari, Thank you for such a positive, flexible, informative and caring senior photo session this past year.  For someone who was doing this for the first time, this experience with you was much easier than I imagined, in every way. You and Jayne covered everything from suggestions on what to wear, locations to consider, time of day to submitting the picture of choice to the school (on time!) for the yearbook. The hardest decision was choosing photos and a package from some amazing, tear jerking pictures, but your big screen and Jayne's willingness to take the time to guide and compare photos with me made it so much easier. I am very happy with all my decisions. Thank you for sharing your expertise in shooting Taylor's senior pictures. I am going to treasure them forever. I look forward to working with you again in the future.  Sincerely,   Deborah Terborg 2015 Senior: Taylor Terborg

Dear Kari, Jessica and I would like to thank you again for an absolutely amazing photo shoot for her senior pictures!  Everything was coordinated perfectly, and the communication with you and Jayne was outstanding.  I'm still amazed that we did a daylight and a dusk photo shoot, in the same day!  Having the portable changing tent downtown was perfect for Jessica to change during the daylight session.  We appreciated your attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile to get the unique shots.  Thank you so much for making this memorable event in Jessica's life one that she will never forget!

Dear Kari,  You were so much fun to work with for my senior pictures! I truly enjoyed your enthusiasm about your photography, and you made it such a fun experience! Trust me, I wouldn't have been able to wipe the smile off my face even if I tried. The poses were fun and unique, and the session was just what I had hoped it would be. Thanks so much Kari for the beautiful pictures!

For parents of senior boys who "don't care about their senior photos", Kari Douma Photography is your answer! My son went into his planning meeting with a less than interested attitude. Jayne was great at working with us to find out what Logan's interest were and pretty soon he was more engaged. When the time came for the photos to be taken, Kari was fabulous at getting Logan into the session. I did not want a photo with his PS4 controller, but Kari knew better and did that photos first. He was hers from that moment on. The cheesy smile mom would have gotten became a great smile to last us a lifetime. The great images at the end were almost impossible to decide between, but Jayne worked with us patiently and helped us through it. We are truly impressed with how Logan's senior photo memories turned out and will recommend Kari Douma Photography to others. P.S.the PS4 photos were great, but in the end he chose a different pose over that one! Kari did know best. Thanks Kari and Jayne for making this a special time for us.

Kari did an excellent job getting my camera-shy son, Chris to relax and smile. She was very creative in the park finding great backgrounds.  Great senior photos without the staged look.  I couldn’t be happier with the results.

I just want to say that our entire experience with Kari Douma Photography was a great one! I contacted the studio via email for my son's senior pictures and I had a response within an hour. My son is a little on the shy side and Kari put him at ease from the moment we walked into the studio. Kari captured the true essence of his character and personality with the photos. The photos are extremely high quality and her professionalism was top notch. Thank you Kari, my photos are priceless!

We couldn't have been more thrilled with our experience with Kari and Jayne for Regan's senior pictures. Kari captured Regan's personality beautifully and made her feel at ease during the entire shoot. The photo selection process was well orchestrated and the guidance provided by Jayne extremely helpful. Thank you both for making senior pictures fun, tasteful and stress free!

I wanted to thank you for all the hard work you put into Christian’s Senior Pictures. Your guidance was priceless and the results are reflected in Christian’s photos. Needless to say, we are absolutely thrilled. We also appreciate all of your flexibility working within our difficult timeline to accommodate all of our schedules. It was so reassuring to find someone who works to get to know you and your needs, rather than just being another customer. We will definitely be coming back for our future photo needs. With all the craziness during senior year, I’m relieved to know that with my younger children I don’t have to worry about getting great senior pictures. We now have a great photographer, that will make these precious memories last a lifetime. Thank you again.

Dear Kari, Thank you for capturing the breathtaking sunset images on the beach in Holland on that warm breezy night in August, an evening I will never forget! You embraced through your camera the image of the Senior that I am and also the young lady I am becoming. It is a wonderful journey and YOU captured this moment of which is forever etched in my heart! And made even more special as I was able to share this moment with my wonderful boyfriend, Travis. When the time comes as we further plan our future together, my hope is YOU will create those special memories for us!
