Thanks so much for requesting more information on family portrait collections!

Whether you are having a family reunion or just spending a weekend together, there’s no better way to document this time in your life than with Enjoy the VU Photography as your family photographer!

What you purchase is entirely up to you. There is no hard sell; what you want is what you will buy. My job is to take beautiful images that you love so you want to buy them all!

I cater to busy families who want beautiful family portraits without any confusion. By keeping things simple you can get back to what matters most – your family!

“We were taking a trip back to the UP and Veronica helped us with family photos. She is very professional and did a great job engaging my two young daughters. We had a great time. Highly recommended!”

What to Know

Where I Photograph

I almost always photograph on location, whether that is in your home or at one of the many fantastic locations available to us here in the Upper Peninsula. From sandy beaches to rocky overlooks to rolling hills, the Keweenaw Peninsula has a little bit of everything to offer! If you have a place in mind, I’d love to hear about it, as well. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your session location to make sure it’s the perfect fit for your personal style.

The Process

Before Your Session

After you review the collections below, go ahead and click the scheduler link to find a time for us to have a brief 15-20 minute call. This can be by phone, FaceTime, or Zoom – whatever’s best for you. I find that these calls are SO beneficial to answer all your questions at once and select a tentative date, versus going back and forth over email twenty times 😉

After our call, I’ll send over what’s called a “Portrait Proposal.” This allows you to officially select your package, sign your contract, and pay your retainer all in one place. Don’t have a printer? Pen run out of ink? Not a problem! Everything can be done right from your phone, tablet, or computer for your convenience!

Please note: I place a “soft hold” on your date for 7 days after we talk to give you time to talk with family and finalize your plans. The Portrait Proposal expires after 7 days, and I will open your date as available.

Additionally, I’ll add you to my email list. You’ll receive tips and tricks leading up to your session including a what-to-wear guide, information on what I look for at your location, and more.

During Your Session

Depending on the collection you select, we’ll shoot anywhere from 30 minutes up to 2 hours on location. This includes the time it takes to set up equipment, change outfits, and move from one location to another.

I always take more images than simply what you select in your package, so you’ll have plenty of options when you go to review your final gallery and select your favorites!

“Some photos capture a person in a moment of time, and then some photos capture the very essence of a person. Veronica has managed to do both with my family photos.

During our vacation in Michigan, we decided to do a family photo session which we hadn’t done in 20 years. All of us were nervous, but Veronica and Rob got all of us laughing and my father telling sea stories. When I look at the photos of my dad telling a sea story, I can picture how beautiful the day was and how much fun we had, but I can also see all of the times my dad has told a story and made the family laugh. That is a rare thing in photography.

Everyone loves the photos that hang around our home now, but everyone’s comment when they look at them is how much life was captured in each and every photo. People are stunned by how much the photos show our personalities, and who we are as individuals. Most importantly, the photos show who we are. We are not glamorous, or flashy, but we don’t need to be. We came to the session as the people we are on a day to day basis, and Veronica captured our best side.

When I look at the photos, I see myself, but also I see the best version of me. A snapshot on a phone doesn’t capture that. There is no greater joy than walking up our family stairs and seeing our gallery of pics. The photo session brought such joy to everyone, and the pictures demonstrate that on a day to day basis.

My only regret is that we don’t live in Michigan, and so can’t have Veronica do pictures once a year. Although there is talk that we should find a way to do photo sessions with her as often as we can go up to Michigan. For all those looking for a photographer who can capture all of you, please go to Veronica. We have never had pictures that brought us as much pleasure as hers have. Thank you Veronica for bringing my family to life.”
