Studio M did our wedding photography, a lot of the pictures looked like they could be magazine covers. The most fun people to work with, and they take some very creative and gorgeous photos. I still can't believe that some of the pictures I have seen come from a real wedding let alone mine.
I cannot describe how happy I am with Marvin & Mary. On one of the most important days of my life, I had absolute faith in them to capture my wedding day, and they exceeded my expectations. It was so important to me and my husband to have skilled photographers, and if you feel the same way, I highly recommend Studio M. They captured every moment beautifully, and I didn't even know they were there.
I purposely did not go and read the other reviews for Marvin Hall’s photography. I am sure that all the reviews are proclaiming all the wonderful virtues of his work, and so I am just one more. However, I wanted to post and tell others who might be looking for a photographer that every penny they spend on choosing him would be well worth it – just look at his portfolio online!
Derek & Allison
Derek and I really enjoyed working with Marvin. A few months before our wedding we did our engagement pictures with Marvin. That served as a great way to get to know him-and we were so pleased with the pictures that it only made us more excited for our wedding. Marvin and his assistant were excellent at our wedding. I got lots of compliments from friends and family about how they were in not your face and intrusive like many wedding photographers can be. . .
Mark & Laura
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. . .
Kayte & Colin
Thanks again for your fabulous work at our wedding! You made the day perfect 🙂
Lindsey & Darrek
Marvin, we LOVE our Wedding Album you made for us! It looks phenomenal! WAY beyond our expectations! I have showed it to pretty much everyone in our church, I think they’re getting sick of me asking if they’ve seen it, haha. Thanks so much for all the hard work and making it look beautiful!
Chad & Lauren
Marvin, Coming from myself, Lauren, and my family, we would like to thank you so much for the incredible photography you have provided us with. We could not be more pleased with every single aspect of our experience with you. You were very easy to work with, communicated with us regularly, and captured amazing photos! We are soooo glad that we decided to go with the higher of the two packages we were contemplating. . .
David & Lindsey Williams

Mid-Michigan’s Family Portrait Studio
Because nothing matters more than your family.
Families are like trees – each branch grows in a different direction, but the roots remain as one. At our studio, we would love to hear your family story and help you create memorable portraits.
The little moments you share with your loved ones turn into memories much sooner than you realize. Time flies! Looking at photo framed on a wall is like retelling a favorite tale. Picking up the family album is like replaying a movie … and that movie is your life. We invite you to turn a family photoshoot into a tradition: every year, on the same date, come to our studio for annual family pictures. Custom photoshoots with matching outfits, scenery, or just a casual one .. there are so many ways to showcase your family’s love and personality.
Check out some of our other popular family photography options below!
Choose Your Family Session
Experiencing pregnancy is probably the most delicate period in a woman’s life. As your belly grows, the excitement of meeting the love of your life will grow too. We suggest taking pictures monthly, just to be sure that you will not miss documenting anything. Or, you may choose to wait until the last trimester. If you like, your partner can accompany you too. Celebrate this transformative stage in your life with beautiful, professional pregnancy photos. You can also choose to do your pregnancy photoshoot outside of a studio, in an environment that represents your family’s lifestyle. We can come to your location and make it happen.
A homecoming shoot makes an amazing gift for your parents. When you and your siblings grow up and move to a different city, it can be challenging to get everyone together for a photo. But when that moment happens, make sure you get a good one by coming into the studio for a professional shot! Then frame the final product for your parents to hang on their wall as a treasured memento. Bring as many generations as you want, and we can get photos of cousins, grandparents with grandchildren, and any other combination you can think of. Our 1500 square foot studio in Holt means we can accommodate large families!
Wherever you go and whatever you do, be sure to spend the holidays with your beloved family. No one should spend this time alone. Why not document the holidays you cherish together with a festive family portrait?
We welcome portrait sessions for holidays and celebrations from all cultures and religions. Feel free to bring special props or decorations to the studio to create the right atmosphere!
Have an upcoming family reunion? Whether you’re hosting it at your home, in the park or at another venue, we can be your official photographer for the day. We’ll capture the fun, candid moments between family members during this special day and ensure that everyone in your family has an equal opportunity to be photographed. No one has to be left out of the pictures because they’re too busy taking them!
Remember to Have Fun During Your Family Photoshoot!
During a family photoshoot, it is important for everyone to have a great time. But this can be a little tricky when your children are little and can get easily bored. So, we try to make it fun and fast. Also, we try to help kids to feel comfortable and have a pleasant experience. It helps when the parents move, play and laugh a lot. Someday, when you’re digging through old mementos, you’ll want to see photos that will bring a smile to your face. The photos also represent the memory of the photoshoot itself, so we aim to make it a good one!
Sessions start at $250. For any questions about the sessions or packages we offer, please contact us!
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!
Talented and fantastic people to work with. So happy with our shoot and know the final product will be top notch!
I can’t even begin to express my love and gratitude to the Studio M team! I bought my daughter a just-for-fun photo shoot as a gift and I am beyond impressed. They were creative, scientific & imaginative … true artists. They coached her beautifully through the poses, had her music of choice playing and did everything possible to make it a special day for her. By the time we got back to Grand Rapids and sat down to dinner, they even sent us a couple preview shots, which was a wonderful (and certainly unexpected) surprise! But, seeing the way her face lit up when she saw them is a moment I’ll never forget. Thank you, Studio M!
