Auden has grown up with is cousin Toby who has always been a big fan of trains so it only makes sense that the love rubbed onto Auden. Because of his interest, why not have his two-year session take place where there are plenty of trains and tracks to go around!Read More

Autumn and Tierney had the pleasure to get to know Ali and Ken more during their engagement session back in May. They are truly "two peas in a pod"! All four of us couldn't stop laughing the whole time.
The one thing that "We" The People Picture Company strive for is having clients to really connect with. By the time the wedding comes we like to feel more like a family than just a business/customer relationship. Having clients like Ali and Ken really makes all of us love what we do and is a prime example of why we do what we do!
Autumn and Tierney cannot wait to photograph their wedding on October 6th!Read More
The story of Hunchback of Notre Dame isn't quite a happy Disney movie as one may think. Quasimodo (played by Jack Reeves) fell in love with a gypsy Esmerelda (played by Gabrielle Rabon) which in turn was a three-way crush between the guard Played by Jacob Kenney). Frollo, Quasimodo keeper set the gypsy on fire for not following his orders which ultimately led to her death. In the end, Esmerelda was held by Quasimodo until their last breath.
Watching these highschoolers preform this Remarkable play was worth watching again and again!
We are so thrilled having the pleasure to get to know these amazing kids and watching their acting grow!Read More
One year ago Hobbes was introduced to the world.

This past Sunday, Bri traveled to St. Joseph, MI and captured their session in the comfort of their home. Elyse had shared a mood board with her and the first photo that caught Bri's eye was one where the momma-to-be was sitting on a counter in the kitchen. Elyse told Bri that each morning her and Kevin make coffee together. Also, Elyse and Kevin are coffee connoisseurs. They'd even talked about opening their own coffee shop one day. So, that's where the session started, in their kitchen, re-creating their morning coffee routine.Read More
This month we had the privilege to photograph triplets right before they made their debut on the news!
Gold Coast Doulas contacted us since we partner with them on many things and told us how one of their clients had triplets. We were excited to be a part of telling their story and incorporating why it's such a great idea to have a little extra help when you are raising triplets.
Post-partum support is a big part of Gold Coast Doula's mission. Many of the doulas offer support to mothers who have just had one baby, but it's extremely essential for those who have had multiples in making sure mom gets some time to rest as well as coordinating feeding and naps for more than one babe at once. Take a look at our fun triplet photo shoot and see what the doulas help with in the home!
December 30th, 2017, Aaron and Jessica said "I do"
While we got to watch their love transpire through these powerful photos, we were also able to document their day using the power of video production, something that we are now offering!
This day could not have gone any smoother. From the very beginning, Jessica and Aaron were thrilled to be married in less than 6 hours, each of them shared incredible moments between their friends and family and you could feel the love in the room.
Take a look at these photos and see for yourself just how amazing this day was!Read More
This year we tried something new in order to make our studio stand out. Adam built a wall for us to use during our trade shows, but we are thrilled that it will also be doubling as a studio background as well.
This is something that we have wanted for a long time and now Adam has made it a reality. With this reality came many challenges, but we wanted to share his step by step process and his accomplishment.Read More
As I am sitting here looking out the window, I am gazing out at the snow looking back on when days were longer and the weather was warmer.
This session was such a joy! These two married a year prior to this shoot and since they never had great photos taken they wanted to have the engagement session experience. This was a chance for Sarah to get all dolled up in her wedding dress once more. The amount of love and silliness that these two have is undeniable, it is no wonder that their son is the same way.
I wish these two, nothing but happiness in their future endeavors.
Congratulations once more Sarah and Santiago!
This year we decided to try something new for our family Christmas minis. We created our own take on Santa in order to make it more fun!
We finally celebrated our Hipster Santa event at 6.25 Paper Studio! Families, children and a hip hound named Zada showed up to take their photos in some of the most eclectic outfits. Even the Mayor Rosalynn Bliss came out to have her photo taken with hipster Santa.
Everyone had so much fun and we could not be happier with the results from this years Christmas minis.Read More

We look forward to more events at the Women's City Club in 2018.Read More
The Solt Family contacted Bri for their family session as soon as they moved to Grand Rapids. Amanda knows Christy Brown, whose family Bri has photographed since she started at The People Picture Co. Bri suggested Reed's Lake as the location for their family session and it was one of the days in December that was 70 degrees! It made for a good session for their little one, Emilia and their pup.Read More
At only two weeks old Charlotte was wide awake during her session. Typically when that happens time is very limited for the baby before they start to cry, however, Charlotte was truly amazing and barely fussed at us. We were even able to get some great shows of her all dressed up in her Christmas outfit, just in time for the holidays!
We are so excited to show off the images from her newborn session!Read More
Everyone knows the story of Buddy the Elf. Buddy found out he was not an elf working in Santa's workshop, but instead, he was a human that had a father back in New York City.
When Buddy finds his dad, he is not as welcoming as Buddy had imagined. However, Buddy meets an amazing woman named Jovie, whom he falls in love with.
Eventually, Buddy's family grows fond of him and together they save Christmas!
Now, this is a very short version of the story, but what was truly incredible was the show that these Stagegr kids put on. For two weeks the cast had put on four shows and they had a blast doing it.
Take an inside look at the show and see for yourself just how much energy that these kids have.Read More
Alyssa Perez is a senior! Bri has known the Perez family for a couple years. She photographed their oldest daughter, Isabel, for her senior portraits. She then photographed the Perez's family session this winter for their Christmas cards. Alyssa's session was held right in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. Alyssa, Mike & Kristy (her parents), and Bri walked around downtown in search of fun backdrops! They started at the Commerce/Cherry Parking Ramp and then they moved around downtown in different areas along those two streets. Alyssa has an infectious smile and laugh that makes anyone want to be cheery. Congratulations on your senior year, Alyssa!Read More
Arielle and Kyle had their session this fall in Kalamazoo when the leaves turned colors and it was absolutely beautiful! They brought their two dogs along and Bri and Tierney had a lovely time photographing their family. At the end of the session, Bri suggested they climb into a tree if they were up for it and they totally did! It made for a very adventurous session!Read More
Erin and Ralph had their engagement session this fall in Kalamazoo. We hiked through the trails of Lillian Anderson Arboretum.
