We Love Engagement Sessions:

Engagement sessions are a unique offering at Boldly Told! Your engagement session will have both Emily and Mike present to create perfect photos and get to know you and your needs better. We have been photographing engagement and family sessions together since 2016. We want to make sure you leave the session completely satisfied with any and all photo ideas. Come with a Pinterest board or other examples saved on your phone!

What to Wear and Bring:

We recommend dark, earthy tones like black, navy, brown and gray. We don't want super bright clothing that might reflect colors onto your faces. Avoid harsh patterns and graphics. You can always bring an extra set of clothing! If you would like any of Emily's vintage furniture or a wooden bench, please speak with her to coordinate.

What You Receive:

Unlike many photographers who set a limit on what they deliver, we simply photograph every location we visit during the session, edit them and send you the JPGs in an online gallery. You are free to share and print them on your own. After your session, we would love to see you again for wedding videography or family photos. To learn more about Emily's maternity, birth or newborn photography, contact her directly at the Dutch Mama Doula and Photography.


A location that we have visited or used before is ideal, but sometimes new locations work too! We often use a quiet park with tall grass, orchards, walls of pine trees and fields. We have several in mind in Kentwood, Caledonia, Wyoming, Grandville and Grand Rapids.
