I'm Hillary Rees, Northern Michigan photographer, wife and mother of 4.

At HR Photography, I like to get to know my clients so that I can make sure you experience something unlike any photography session you've had. So, lets have coffee, or donuts, or coffee AND donuts and you can tell me about yourself and make fun of my donut/coffee dipping habit!

I think its important that we all have fun during our time together, especially the kids! The first studio job I had was at a kid-centric mall studio where part of my actual mandatory uniform was a hat with a propeller on the top. If our session includes kids, expect me to be at least part goof-ball. Making fun connections with the people I photograph yields such dynamic moments and expressions that I can't resist being my silly self to make it happen!

So, if you're looking for full-on stiff traditional portraiture or beautiful images that you've seen 100 times before, by all means let me help you find another photographer who will produce that for you. But, if you want something a little bit different, something tailored to YOU, lets have coffee!
