Dexter + Ann Arbor Portrait Studio

Betsy Finn established Betsy's Photography in 2005, and has been creating portraits ever since.

Betsy's Photography features a dedicated consultation room where we can meet to plan your session, and ultimately view and order your portraits. We have a dedicated camera room for studio portraits. Outdoors, we have a spacious grassy lawn overlooking a pond and wooded area with mature trees. These spots are great for outdoor portraits.

The best part? We're located just 10 minutes from downtown Ann Arbor.

Our "Outdoor Studio" Option

If you would rather have your session outdoors due to Covid-19 concerns, we're happy to make that happen. Here's a short video about how your session will compare if you come for an "outdoor studio" sessione:

Virtual Studio Tour

Betsy's Photography studio is located in the lower level of my home. Some people call it a basement, but it's really 880 square feet of dedicated studio space where I do all things photography. You'll find a cozy and intimate consultation room, and a camera room that can be used to photograph groups of more than a dozen people (My record is 14 for a multi-generational family portrait).

The best part? The studio is climate controlled. Despite the hot and humid months in Michigan, we will have a comfortable place to create your portraits.

After ringing the doorbell, I'll welcome you inside, and you'll be able to see wall portraits of my family in the living room before we head downstairs to the studio. You'll enter the consultation room, with sample wall art and portraits, and a projection system for viewing + ordering your portraits. From there, we'll proceed to the camera room, which is comfortably sized for individuals and groups alike (we've photographed groups of up to 14 people).

This is the camera room, as set up for a traditional kid portrait session.

Behind the Scenes - On Location

Wondering how we work on location? Betsy takes portable studio lighting on all location sessions, ensuring you will look your best regardless of where your session takes place.

If your session entails any outfit changes, we also provide amenities such as a portable changing room (great for high school senior sessions) and a folding wagon to help cart things around.

When working on location, we bring portable studio lighting with us. For sessions with multiple outfits, we bring a portable changing room and a folding wagon to make life easier for you. Watch the video below to learn more.
