In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.

Rebecca Houlihan Photography opened its doors in 2008 and has been serving Lansing and the surrounding communities ever since.  We have specialized in senior portraits since 2012, and through the years have expanded our scope to add in families and personal portraits, including branding, women's boudoir and maternity.
There are a ton of reasons why people choose to photograph others.  Rebecca has learned through hundreds of sessions her greatest passion is to love and serve others by creating a portrait experience that enables them to walk away feeling valuable and beautiful from the inside-out.

Is there something special that would mean the world to you in your portraits?  
Do you have specific posing concerns or requests?
Have you had a bad portrait experience in the past?
Is there a specific "look" you're after for your final result?
Do you have certain requests for the portraits you display in your home?
No matter the questions or concerns you have prior to your session, we're listening and our top priority is to take care of you.

We listen to you

Have you ever felt unprepared for something but you just do it anyway, then you're disappointed after?  That's not how we roll.  We make sure Every. Single. Detail. is planned out and scheduled in advance.  You'll know what to wear, what props to pack, and your hair and makeup appointment will even be scheduled for you so it doesn't get overlooked.  There are some details to work out when having portraits taken but it's a special occasion and we want it to be as low stress as possible, and fun!

It's all in the details

When you work with us, things are taken a step at a time. 
Before your session, we want to meet you and learn all about you so your portraits are as unique as you are.  During your session we're not trying to get done as quickly as possible.  We make sure your hair is perfect, your outfit is great, and you're posed well with genuine expressions.  During your order, we give you the time to see and feel every single item.  You'll have these memories forever and we take the proper steps to make sure they're perfect for you, forever.

Our time is your time

I haven't had too much experience with other photographers, but what I have experienced from family portraits, school band portraits, weddings, and other occasions, I have realized that Rebecca has been the best one I've worked with, so I would 100% recommend her to everyone!

Rebecca- you captured the true essence of our daughter, Brianna Rose.  I knew for years that I wanted you to be her photographer for senior pictures.  The experience that day was everything and more!  You are so talented.  You made her feel at ease and she was able to to be herself.  What a gift you gave us.  It's one we enjoy every day looking at all the pictures in our home, made even more special now that she's off to college.  Thank you so much!

Why have hair and makeup done?
Experienced artists know exactly how to even out your skin tone and enhance all your best features.  They also know hair texture and how to make sure yours is at it's best for your session.  When we send you to the salon, we're not sending you for you to come out looking like somebody different, we're sending you to have all your natural, beautiful features enhanced just right for portraits.  We have a ton of confidence in our artists as they've worked with literally hundreds of our clients and know exactly the steps to take to make sure you're perfectly camera ready.
