Engagement Photos – Spring 2015 – Grand Rapids – Michigan

Spring is a great time to have your engagement photos.  Grand Rapids, Michigan provided a great place to meet with Rachel and Corey.  Walking around downtown gave us plenty of great backgrounds to work with.  The Blue Bridge is a customer favorite and so is the Ford Museum.  Looking forward to a great wedding in July 2015.

Modern Photographics has gone mobile… What does that mean?

Modern Photographics has gone mobile… What does that mean?

Basically- We no longer have a retail studio space dedicated to studio portraits.

How does this affect our clients?- Well since 1976 clients have been able to find us in downtown Lowell, Michigan on Main Street.  For years we were anchored to a building, but times have modernized.  Dan and Brandon (our photographers) now work from offices outside the studio.  They both have the equipment and experience to photograph anywhere in almost any condition.  Instead of our clients having to come into the studio multiple times to complete the photography process.  Dan or Brandon will come to you!  Meet you at your residence, local park, or coffee shops.  Online ordering and proofing saves time and can be done 24/7.

What if it rains?- The studio was nice for when it rained, but Dan and Brandon have alternative locations available to photograph out of the weather.  For example, the Grand Volute is available upon request to photograph large groups or families, Santa promotions, or other indoor photos as necessary.  Our clients homes are also great places for portraits.  The baby’s room for maternity, or newborn.  A kids room for personality shots at different ages.  The creative limitations are no longer limiting!

What if the client doesn’t have any ideas on where to have their photos taken?- With over 15 years of experience, Dan and Brandon know of lots of places to photograph.  Local parks like Fallasburg  Park, old barns, farm fields, and many other unique places.

What if I have questions?- Call our phone- 616-897-5606 and we can help.

Brandon Mulnix and Family Update

Brandon Mulnix Family update

Mulnix Family update 2013

2013 was a huge year for the Modern Photographics Family.  In June the studio was purchased by Dan and Jodi Johnson of Dan Johnson Photography.  This was a huge answer to prayer for our family, because it allowed Emily and I to concentrate on the coming addition to our family.  The 10 month adventure to bring our son home from Ethiopia concluded in August when we were finally joined as a family.  Our son is adjusting well to our family.  He started school in late September and is quickly becoming Americanized.  He speaks almost all English, and any word he doesn’t know seems made up at this point.  Winter brought with it his first experience with snow and bitter cold.  Playing outside is what he enjoys the best, but winter is limiting his playful spirit.

Our daughter is also adjusting well to having a little brother after ten years of being an only child.  She is doing great in school and is looking forward most to playing softball in the spring.  Together they make a great team.  The fight a lot, but when they get along they are a tag team of silliness.  Our family is so blessed to be together and its even more blessed to be home regularly with the kids.  Dan and Jodi have taken so much of our burden off our shoulders.

Now just because I don’t call myself owner doesn’t mean I am not working hard.  I get the blessing of being a photographer for an amazing studio!  I continue to photograph weddings, seniors, children, and families, but now I get to do it with a lot less stress.  The team that Modern Photographics and Dan Johnson Photography is becoming is what photography is all about.  Trying to do everything on our own was tough, but together our family of clients gets blessed by the whole team.  Thank you for all your Prayers and support during the year of transition for our Family and for Modern Photographics.

Modern Photographics has a Photo Booth and its Booking Quickly!

Modern Photographics has a Photo Booth and its Booking Quickly!

Photo Booths add a new element to any event.  Your Guests can take home a photo of themselves enjoying your party.  With so many people relying on Facebook to store their precious memories, a 2×6 strip of 3 photos of them being silly makes their living or work space more enjoyable.  Being silly is easy when you have oversized Sunglasses,  face Mustache, Cowboy hat, or even an old frame to be creative with.  Laughter is a side effect of our Photo booth.  When your guests walk away with that silly grin of just “kissing” in the photo booth you can smile as well.
