I promise to offer a fulfilling experience that lasts from the first inquiry to the day you receive your gallery and beyond. Every detail matters. Getting your photos taken, your very self documented, should be exciting, not nerve-wracking. I want you to feel valued, prioritized, and taken care of.
Forget the studio portraits our well-meaning moms once dragged us to at Sears. I want to capture more than what you happen to look like on a certain day with a fake backdrop and frivolous props. I want to capture your truest self, in a place where you feel alive or doing what you love.
I like to think of our time together as a creative collaboration. I want to work with you. Together, we can dream up all sorts of unique, fun, and totally you ideas for your session. Let’s come up with something that no one has done before, something that sets you apart from the rest.
More than anything I want you to feel entirely comfortable and relaxed during your shoot. I will arrive prepared to pose you and guide you throughout your session in a way that feels natural to you. And if you would prefer to take the lead, I will gladly follow you every step of the way.

The behind-the-scenes, “unglamorous,” and time-intensive work of editing consumes a tremendous portion of my process. I consider these hours some of my most important and creative. I gently edit my photos to bring out the warm tones and natural colors already captured in the frame, so that you can feel the dream all over again.
Each gallery is delivered with 3 slight edit variations to make sure your photos are the perfect balance of timeless and trendy. You'll receive your photos color edited, color edited with added grain, and black and white edited.
"There is no one else to hire in West Michigan when looking for a photographer. If you want an effortless, beautiful, and joy filled experience then you need to go with Jaymi! The only word I can think of that describes my experience with her is effortless. From the paper work to the shooting experience I felt unique, cared for, and valued as a customer. She has a true gift for telling stories through a frame. There is something poetic about the images she creates."
"I found Jaymi on Instagram and though I didn’t know her personally, she communicated so well that any worries went away quickly. I chose to work with Jaymi because of the good reviews she had from all of her clients and her photography style that she shared on Instagram! She made me so comfortable and confident! There was no awkwardness, it was easy and fun the whole night, and I got to see sneak peaks the next day, which was awesome. She is AMAZING at what she does and she makes something that can sometimes be stressful, totally stress free."
"I cannot say enough about how amazing my experience was with Jaymi! It can sometimes be awkward getting your picture taken at first, but Jaymi immediately made me feel so comfortable. She made my experience so fun and I felt relaxed the entire time. I could not have asked for a better experience for my pictures!"
"I had so much fun with Jaymi during my senior picture session. She made me feel at ease and confident in myself. Her creativity and artistry was evident throughout the session and the results. I am thrilled with my pictures and don't know how I will pick a favorite!"
"Working with Jaymi was an all-around great experience! She knew the right places to go and the right poses to do, but if I had any ideas or specific requests she was not opposed to them! The whole time during the shoot she was friendly and encouraging and treated you not like a client but like a friend. The final pictures turned out amazing too! She’s a great photographer to work with and puts a lot of heart and hard work into the photos. The location and outfit guides she sends are great. Additionally, during the shoot she is fun and encouraging while taking the pictures. I would honestly recommend her to anyone!"
"I didn’t have any hesitations working with Jaymi! I was nervous going into it, not knowing what poses to do, but Jaymi made me feel very comfortable and it came very easy with having a hype woman behind the camera. I had seen so much of her beautiful work on Instagram and from others who have used her photography. It made me super excited to have such clean, aesthetic, and timeless pictures. Jaymi right off the bat is the sweetest person. She has such a great and professional work ethic. During photo shoots she constantly makes you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera, even if you normally aren’t. I would recommend Jaymi to anyone who needs pictures taken. There is nothing to be nervous about for your session with her. It's such a fun time smiling, laughing, and cheesing at the camera."
