We’ve done senior pictures and family pictures twice now with Marvin through Studio M Portraits and both times we’ve been very happy with the results. I cannot imagine having anyone else take our pictures!! Thank you so much for capturing the many different looks of all 8 of us and I look forward to having you do senior pictures again next year!!!!

Our family had an amazing time taking our Christmas photos by Marvin! He made us feel comfortable and free to be ourselves. He accommodated our diverse family by posing us in positions that were complimentary. We are so grateful to have found this gem in the Lansing area, and will be returning!

Marv, nothing less than I expected. Laura and Mark shared wedding photos with us over Thai food shortly after leaving your appointment this past Saturday. Needless to say they were very good, or I would say exceptional. Both Laura and Mark were very pleased. You and your assistant were right on the ball. A photographer is always big part of any wedding. This was made extra special maybe because we were work partners and better yet still considered friends. I do not think they could have asked for anything more. Thanks for sharing your expertise and making our daughters dreams come true.

I went to the Studio M mini session last week because I had not had professional pictures taken of myself in 6 or so years and they turned out GREAT! Very happy.
