The Experience

Light Garden offers stylish expertise in photographic wall décor. Based in southeast Michigan, we serve those who are passionate about energizing their homes with family photographs. We guide the creative process from start to finish so you and your loved ones can enjoy the production! After careful planning, we'll meet for a documentary style photography session to capture your family's natural synergy. A week later we'll invite you to a personal ordering appointment to view your gallery and create a portrait display to compliment your home perfectly. Our style at Light Garden is airy, clean & natural. We aspire to help your family roots flourish into heartfelt photography that delights you!


The Process

The Pre-Consultation

Friendship time! We're happy to come to your home to prepare for your creative experience. This is a great opportunity for your children (or husband, haha!) to warm up to Madison before the photo session. We’ll chat about your style, wardrobe and scenery so we yield photographs that you LOVE! We'll also review product samples and spaces in your home to propose a design plan that will guide the mood of the photo session.

The Photography Session

Smile for the camera! Just kidding actually just ignore the camera! Haha! Next is a 1-2 hour photography session with your loved ones. My favorite part! All sessions are held during the gentle morning sunrise, or the tranquil evening sunset. Since Light Garden utilizes dreamy, natural light, it's important that we photograph when the sun is the softest and most serene! We’ll play and laugh and create photographs that reflect your family's natural synergy.

The Ordering Appointment

Time to pick your favorites! A week after the photo session, we'll invite you to a personal ordering appointment to bring your design plan to life! We'll view your gallery and talk about all things pretty! With a warm, personal touch Madison will help create your very own work of art that you will cherish for a lifetime.


The Artist

Hi! I’m Madison.

I’m a fiery Aries, a dreamer, and a hugger. I love tea, plants, yellow anything, hammocks, and music I can dance too! I have an artist’s heart and my beloved camera is my paint brush. I’m passionate about documenting moments that make us feel things, and crafting them into works of art! Recycled barnwood frames for the rustic home, distressed linen wedding albums for the bohemian bride - yes please!

The beauty of photography has forever caught my eye. In high school my dear Papa gifted me his vintage Kodak film camera. What.a.beaut. I still feel the passion that set fire in my heart after developing my first negative… probably what Rose felt like when Jack taught her how to fly in front of the Titanic.

I studied photography at Michigan State University, then held my breath and dove into the photo world! I learned so much these crucial years. The industry challenged me to discover the artist within and define my creative purpose. And so - Light Garden was born. My proudest endeavor that I love to share with awesome people!

My style is earthy and botanical with a documentary flare. I’m most inspired by lush garden scenery, dreamy natural light, and tender smiles. As a documentary photographer, nurturing friendships with clients is always the first priority. Let's get cozy with each other! My goal to help clients feel relaxed in the presence of my camera so  we can comfortably share intimate moments - whether it be your wedding day or at home in the nursery of your first child. 

But enough about me... I’d love to hear from you! Drop a line anytime. New friends are the best!
