"Karen did a great job working with our two children and captured us beautifully as a family."
"Working with Karen to capture our daughter's communion was wonderful. She captured our daughter beautifully and was a pleasure to work with."
"If you’ve been searching for a talented and professional photographer to capture all the special moments in your life, Karen is the ONE! . . . or should I say, the only one! We are so thankful that a friend referred us to Karen to take our son’s newborn photos! They turned out so beautiful-more than we could ever have imagined. We are looking forward to many more family sessions in the future!"
"Karen has taken numerous photos for our family. The images have been absolutely breathtaking. Karen has a keen eye and her photos capture light in different ways which make each picture a masterpiece on its own. The senior pictures of my children were unique and we received many, many compliments. With her photos, she has also created the most beautiful holiday cards and invitations for our family. Karen is a gifted photographer who can take the simplest setting and turn it into the most beautiful picture. I highly recommend Karen and promise you will not be disappointed. She is 'the best'."
"We got the album and portrait today. It is absolutely beautiful. I can't stop looking at it . . . such a great album of amazing images of our girls. We look forward to working with Karen again later this year."
"We loved working with Karen twice this year. We met her over the summer when we photographed with horses at the Brighton Equestrian Club. I was so taken by the portraits that they moved me to tears. I chose a large framed canvas of my daughter, which I will treasure forever, along with other small pieces. I immediately booked a second session with our extended family at the holidays. The entire family loved their portraits and we have special memories of the day. We will all treasure the portraits. Karen connects well with clients and captures in a way that is nothing short of 'art.' We can't wait for the opportunity to work with her again."
"Every time I see the lantern in my daughter's portrait, which we have as a beautifully-framed print in our home, I think of the light Karen gives to others through photography. When life rushes by in a stressful blur, moments slip away before you realize they are gone. To have a moment in childhood preserved so beautifully is a rare and treasured gift. Karen makes the world a better place!"
"We discovered Karen as part of a special horse session through the Brighton Equestrian Club. We had heard from other parents how beautiful her work was and how fun she was to work with. We loved the portraits so much from tha session that we worked with her again not long after to photograph our whole family. The session was fun, stress-free, and Karen captured our family beautifully. My husband was skeptical that she could create a beautiful portrait with everyone, including the dogs. She succeeded and then some. The documentary lifestyle album is a keepsake and I smile every time we look at the canvas on the wall. We will definitely work with Karen again."
"We loved working with Karen. She created beautiful family portraits and portraits of our daughter on a gorgeous fall day in early November. She chose a perfect location with lighting and color. She posed our daughter in a way that captured her energy and joy. We love the box of matted portraits we selected and enjoy it all the time. We can't wait to work with Karen again soon."
"We adored the portrait Karen created of our four children recently. She worked with them at the Brighton Equestrian Club on a beautiful, summer day. The session was filled with laughter and fun with Spot the horse. She captured the spirit of joy of each child individually and a perfect one of all four of them together. We enjoy the beautifully-framed canvas every day and can't wait to work with Karen again."
"We loved the portraits Karen created of our daughter during our modeling session. The day of the session, the wardrobe stylist cancelled shortly before we were due to arrive. Instead of panicking, Karen improvised and dressed my daughter in studio wardrobe pieces, including a long swath of beautiful tulle fabric and a flower headpiece. My daughter looked angelic. We had a very difficult time choosing our portraits because they were all beautiful. We so enjoy viewing them every day and look forward to working with Karen again."
"We had a great time working with Karen during our recent visit home to metro Detroit. We photographed on a bone cold day in late December but she assured us the suffering would be worth it in the end. And it was! She created beautiful portraits of our extended and immediate family and surprised us with images of our daughter that we didn't even know she captured. What a fun surprise. We love the portraits and would work with her again."
"Karen was able to create an atmosphere where magic could happen, even with children who hadn't met her before. I can't thank her enough for capturing this wonderful moment between my twins and creating a cherished work of art."
"We had the privilege of working with Karen on a Fourth of July themed shoot with our son, Sullivan. Karen has a vision and actually came up with the theme. We were so happy with all of the photos and it was very difficult to pick and choose which we wanted to keep. Karen worked so well with our son, keeping him engaged, yet making it fun for him as well. We couldn't be happier with the results and we love the precious moments she captured!"
"Karen photographed my son in a majestic setting in the woods on a beautiful summer day. Everything was perfectly planned, from the setting, the light, his expression, and the final portrait. It was fun seeing my son's portrait hanging as a huge framed 40x60 piece of art on the studio wall. Karen's work is beautiful and we enjoyed working with her."
"We so loved working with Karen during her recent trip to the Washington, D.C. area. We so enjoyed working with her and the girls had such fun. The images are vibrant and breathtaking. We will treasure them forever."
"I was blown away by the professionalism, expertise and skill that Karen used to capture my daughter's senior portraits. I will always treasure that day. Where someone sees a field, or a tree, or a piece of fruit, Karen sees the beauty in every angle, expression and texture. I've never been more thrilled to share photos of my daughter."
"If you're looking for a photographer, use Karen. You will not be disappointed. Karen is creative and professional. She was friendly towards my daughter and really took her time with her. I ca't say enough about the good work she does. Even though we have had only one photo session with her, we have remained friends over time."
"Working with Karen was fun and the finished piece was amazing! She captured my daughter beautifully."
"Karen has the unique and complex ability to capture not simply the beauty, but the genuine personality and soul of her subjects. I recall her vibrant persona, unmatched professionalism, and evident joy in the photographing process. I am elated to work with her a second time!"
"I absolutely LOVE the finished portrait. I'm amazed at what beautiful images you were able to create in such a short amount of time. We're so excited to work with you again soon."
"We loved working with Karen to photograph our daughter so much last summer that we worked with her again recently to photograph our son. She did a beautiful job capturing their spirits. She had fun with the kids, provided beautiful styled wardrobe for them, and of course, captured terrific smiles and looks. We will enjoy both of their framed portraits for many years to come."
"Karen creates images that truly capture the joy and love of your children.
Working with her is always fun and worry free. We can't wait to work with her again."
"When my mom told me I was working with Karen, I was so elated I gave her the biggest hug! Karen orchestrated the most beautiful scene complete with wardrobe, a vintage bike, an old gramophone, flowers, and shot in breathtaking rolling hills. Having hair & make-up and wearing the beautiful clothes made me feel beautiful. The image and the experience were both unforgettable."
"Working with Karen was easy and fun. The day of the session was stress-free and she captured so many amazing images in a very short time. She knew exactly how to position us to capture the best shots. Karen communicated the true value and importance of creating beautiful portrait art during our design consultation. We are excited to enjoy our beautiful framed wall portrait for years to come!"
"Karen created an amazing experience that was personalized to me and my interests. She listened to what I wanted and brought it to life. My passion is water. Karen created a water-themed sessions on the coastline for me that included the perfect wardrobe, locations, and hair & make up. The portrait is stunning and we had a blast working with her. If you're looking for a high-end, 'boutique' experience and product, Karen is it!"
"My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Karen five years ago. After the wonderful experience we had, I always said I would want her to photograph our children. When we were blessed with our first child, I couldn't wait to call her. We've worked with Karen five times. She simply the best!!!
"Karen has the most amazing gift of capturing the beauty in children in so many unique settings."
"Karen's work is gorgeous. She captured the spirit and beauty of my daughter on a beautiful autumn day. Her command of lighting, posing, and connecting with subjects creates vibrant portraits that tell a story. I still love the portraits to this day. She's worth every penny."
"I couldn't be happier with my senior portraits. It was a fun day working with Karen. She saw so many great opportunities for beautiful a photo and the results did not disappoint. My family has worked with Karen several times through the years and we look forward to working with her in years to come."
"Clients in Michigan are fortunate to have Karen Lippowiths, a top notch artist living and working locally. My family portrait with her was outstanding. Not only did Karen meet us on a day which was most convenient for my family (my husband often travels for work and we are not all in the same place at the same time), but she spent literally hours with me after going over the images and making a selection. She is knowledgable, professional, creative, warm and has her clients best interest at heart. I would most certainly recommend her. If you do not work with her - you are missing out."
"Karen photographed our two boys having so much fun on a beautiful day in downtown Birmingham. She truly captured them in their element and we love the portraits!"
"Karen truly captured the personality of my children. The portraits are amazing!!! Working with Karen was fun for both my children and myself. We are grateful to find such a talented portrait artist to capture moments that will be cherished for years to come! We smile every time we look at the sweet face, as well as the funny face she had him make during his session. We look forward to Karen photographing our family through the years."
"Wow! What an amazing experience. The session was loads of fun, and produced a portrait that was amazing! Karen has the ability to capture the subject's spirit. My entire family is so thrilled, and we will continue to use Karen to capture us all. . . thank you!"
"Karen created a beautiful portrait session for me, complete with fantasy wardrobe, picturesque location, and at perfect time of day. The 'golden hour' lighting was amazing. We had fun laughing and exploring through open fields, finding perfect little spots along the way. I loved the way she styled me. I treasure the box of portraits that we chose and I recommend Karen to anyone looking to feel and look beautiful."
"We've worked with Karen several times over the years and she is awesome. She always makes us feel like her most important client. She's brimming with creativity and goes to great lengths to execute her vision flawlessly. She's well worth the investment."
"I have worked twice with Karen with my two girls. She was extremely easy to work with. The portraits were amazing-nothing like what I have seen before. Can't say enough about her work."
"Karen was truly a pleasure to work with. Most sessions with three year olds can be tricky, but Karen made it fun and captured some amazing moments! I love our portrait!"
"I have to say that I am not a huge fan of getting my picture taken. But what Karen produced of the family is amazing! I knew that the girls would be great, and Karen captured some very sweet moments of the two of them. The location was perfect, and Karen made us feel comfortable yet gave us super-star status. The product offering is of the highest quality, and the framed piece looks wonderful in our house. I can't thank Karen enough for the wonderful opportunity to capture our family!"
"Karen was such a pleasure to work with. The session was a relaxed and a fun experience. We also had a great time with the proof review, Karen is very creative and easy to work with. Our portrait is very high quality, letting you know it came from somewhere special. Friends and family have commented they will use Karen."
"The portrait of my children brought tears to my eyes they were so beautiful and so full of my personality. I've never used an independent portrait artist and wasn't sure what to expect. I am beyond delighted and will cherish this piece of art for life. My husband was also so delighted with the outcome. He's hard to impress, so that was huge! Thank you again so much!"
"As a friend commented on our recent portrait, 'You didn't buy a picture, you bought art!' Karen delivers an unparalleled experience. From the beginning of the engagement providing guidance and setting expectations, to dealing with weather, children, and life situations, Karen is a consummate professional. I love looking each and every day at the portrait of my family and can't imagine not having captured the memory of my family so beautifully!"
"We had a wonderful experience working with Karen. The portrait of our infant twins are beautiful. Karen took her time to capture their individual personalities and their bond as brothers. Also, the portrait of our 7 year old is priceless. Karen captured the complete essence of her personality. The joy in her eyes said it all. She still talks about how much fun she had with Karen. These works of art really are a moment of this period in their lives. Our friends and family are still talking about this! Thank you. We look forward to working with Karen again."
"Karen captured communion portraits of both of our daughters. We were truly blown away with how beautiful she made them look. It was such a thrill to visit Karen's studio a few years later to see this portrait large and on the studio wall. Karen's work is divine."
"Working with Karen was such a pleasure. She made the experience fun, relaxed and enjoyable for my four-year-old. The portrait is exquisite with vibrant color and clarity. We will treasure this work-of-art forever."
"Karen was the easiest person to work with for my daughter's! She made my daughter feel totally relaxed and helped her have fun and make her session a great life experience. Karen even helped her pick out outfits! Our session was wonderful. We captured so many great choices, it was hard to choose. Now our daughter is at college in Ann Arbor and we are thrilled to have captured her at this important time in her life."
"Karen is an amazing portrait artist. We enjoyed working with her and she was able to bring out the best in each one of us! She truly listened to our requests and created something that reflects both our family's personality as well as her superb talent as an artist."
"Our daughter modeled for Karen and a Michigan-based retailer this fall and the images were so beautiful. She made my daughter feel great and we all had such fun!"
MS. STACY CHATFIELD
"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! My husband and I had been looking for a portrait artist for our three-year-old daughter for awhile. Our regular family photographer had previously been unable to fully capture our child's outgoing personality and beauty. I was nearly in tears (the good kind) looking at the wonderful portrait. It is EXCEPTIONAL! Karen is an amazing artist and definitely worth every penny! We are overwhelmed with gratitude and look forward to working with her in future. "
DR. MONICA LEE-GRIFFITH
"The experience was truly one of a kind. The canvas brings a smile to our faces every morning and make our new house feel complete. It captures our daughter so well, that years down the road just one look at it will bring back the great memories of the "'playful twos'."
DR. IRENA ZMITROVIC & DR. HAMID GHANBARI
"Karen is such a pleasure to work with, she is professional and has an exquisite rapport with children. Her attention to detail is impeccable. Each childs' personality shines through. We appreciate that with her artistry, she was able to capture some of the milestones that pass too quickly in a child's life. We are so pleased with the the beautiful displays she has designed. We look forward to working with her again."
MS. MELISSA & MR. ANDREW RAE
"I've worked with Karen twice in the past two years and have the most beautiful portraits of my two daughters from these sessions. These pieces of art work on my walls and I continue to stop and look at them nearly every time I walk by. Karen was great with my girls, posing them, but not overdone. She was incredibly patient especially with my active six-year-old!"
MS. NICOLE FERGUSON
"Working with Karen has been a wonderful experience for my teenage daughter, and for my husband (a photographer, no less) and me. Karen has a great eye for capturing your child's personality â€“ all the while connecting with the child and making the session fun! The quality of her work is incredible â€“ and never fails to impress and delight my family and friends. Her professionalism, and elegant touches are communicated clearly in every part of the experience. We look forward to working with Karen for years to come!"
"Our daughter modeled for Karen and a Michigan-based retailer this fall and the images were so beautiful. She made my daughter feel great and we all had such fun!"
"We love working with Karen Lippowiths's images. We used her image in our latest ad.
Karen has the ability to capture not only a pretty face but the essence of her sweet subjects."
"Karen's work is like no one else's. She has a keen ability to create and execute a concept flawlessly. She made magic on our most recent editorial project for Neiman Marcus. I've seen her make models look more beautiful than any other photographer. Having known and worked with Karen for the last 10 years has been a true pleasure. She is a consummate professional -- reliable, collaborative, and personable. We love having her as part of the team."
"Karen photographed our daughter, a dancer, in the most eloquent way. She created natural but stunning portraits for her. We presented the images to our daughter for Christmas and she was so touched. We consider Karen family and can't wait for her to capture us again soon."
"The portrait is amazing. We love it, and the grandparents loved getting framed photos as keepsakes.'"
"Karen has photographed our family numerous times throughout the years, including both of our kid's senior portraits. We treasure each of them and love working with Karen again and again."
"It was a great experience working with Karen, she has amazing talents! I was treated with the highest respect and she knew how to get my 'good side.' I highly recommend Karen's work for anyone! She had everything planed out, and was ready to go. You could have the most sophisticated camera, but it's the photographer that makes the picture."
"From the moment I saw Karen's work, my heart started racing with excitement. Weeks later after viewing the artistic images she produced, I was honestly in tears. The memory she created for us goes beyond my children dressing up in the cutest outfit or having a big smile. Karen is pure talent. I cannot begin to emphasize the gratitude and appreciation I have for such talented work , professionalism and patience. I have had the privilege of working with Karen and she has given my family and I a priceless treasure we can cherish and look back on forever. I appreciate perfection and, honey that's exactly what Karen stands for. I look forward to every memory Karen creates for my family."
"Oh my goodness, Karen is insanely talented. She made us look so beautiful! I'm beyond excited. [My husband] was delighted, too. She should be sainted."
"Karen and her team have the ability to make anyone feel as beautiful as she makes them look. We had a fabulous experience and the image made an impact."
"Karen is wonderful to work with. Top notch. Well worth the money spent."
"Karen is very professional, approachable and patient! She has a great eye and produced gorgeous photos of my girls. I especially loved the period costume pieces she did. Highly recommend!"
"I've worked with Karen twice in the last year to photograph both of my children. The pictures are amazing. And the way she presents everything is beautiful. Makes me feel special! Everything is so pretty!"
"Karen has an eye like no other, and lets no detail go unnoticed! She has an ability to capture such beautiful photos that are equally full of personality and character! We will cherish the photos she took of our son forever!"
"Karen was amazing!! The pictures were beyond what I would imagine! Very easy to work with. Beautiful outfit options. Highly recommended!
"We took pictures of our daughters with Karen. It’s an amazing experience with the professional! Pictures are stunning!"
"Everything about our experience with Karen was perfect. She was amazing with my 5-year-old, somehow getting her to move her chin or hands just right for the perfect shot. I'm not one to normally recommend people or services, but I would literally stop random people on the street to tell them how wonderful Karen and her work are. If you want heirloom quality portraits look no further. You will LOVE everything about the experience!"
"I can't thank you enough for capturing these perfect moments!"
"Karen brought tears to my eyes!!! My daughters pictures are stunning!!! Karen was amazing to work with and I hope to do it again sometime!!"
"We worked with Karen to create images of our daughter to promote the Brighton Equestrian Club. She captured her so beautifully that we worked with her again a few months later. Karen has an ability to connect with clients and make them look and feel wonderful. We hope to work with Karen again soon."
"We so enjoyed working with Karen. She made every step of the process easy and fun. She photographed my son on a very cold day in February, but she assured us that it would be worth it . . . and it was! I had such a hard time picking my favorite poses, they were all good! In the end, Karen helped me chose three wall pieces. I can't wait to share them and enjoy seeing my beautiful boy every day. We look forward to working with Karen again."
"We can't say enough about the maternity, newborn, and family portraits Karen captured of our family this year. Love them all! Such a treasure. Thank you, Karen."
"Karen captured my whole family beautifully and was wonderful to work with. We love our canvas and will treasure it for many years to come."
"The Best! I could not be any happier with our session with Karen! I was headed in to our session rather giddy, as I have followed Karen for many years now. I am in awe of her artistic eye and creativity.
I was even more excited when she planned an amazing session for my daughters. She thought of every last detail!
On the day of our shoot, my girls were a little on the cranky side (every parents fear on picture day). But Karen was wonderful with them - patient and kind and on their level. She let my strong-willed girls be themselves and she all but disappeared into the background while she shot. When some direction was needed, Karen would kindly ask them to turn a certain way or look in a particular direction, and those same strong-willed girls listened without missing a beat. Karen knows just how to capture the perfect moments. She's always in the right spot and the right time capturing the right moment. Amazing. So beyond the great communication planning the shoot, the well-thought out stylized shoot itself, her extreme professionalism during the shoot, I was excited to view the end results! Having been a fan of Karen's work for some time, I knew I would love what she created. And the images she captured did not disappoint. Wow! I'm in love with our finished result. Simply put, she created something I will treasure for ever.
Karen is amazing, creative, and certainly has a gift as an artist. I am very fortunate to have had her capture my girls. My family and friends could not say enough positive things about our portrait as well.
Hands down, I would highly recommend her. Thank you, Karen for spending so much time with us and making the entire experience so memorable."
