Children’s Pictures are what we do!

Formerly Milly Houchins Photography, we are changing our name to Photos By Milly effective January 1, 2016.

Located in Troy, MI, I get a thrill taking children’s pictures and watching kids just being kids. I love their innocence and those giant sparkling eyes brimming with wonderment. Being able to capture a child’s true personality in a photograph and turning that into a memory that will last a lifetime is such a joy.
My favorite images are those captured during unplanned moments when they think no one is watching. That’s when I capture my favorite kind of images; ones that capture the funny way they bite their lip when they concentrate, how they hold their little hand just so, or my personal favorite is that string of drool running down a teething baby’s belly. These images are a reflection of my style as a whole…casual, real and candid. I love shooting kids in their own environment, outdoors, and in the studio.
My Troy studio offers a casual, relaxed, and friendly atmosphere for maternity, newborns and kids. I believe that a laid back, casual approach results in the most extraordinary images. I’m wild about props and color and a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my images. My goal is to make sure you and your kids have fun during a shoot while also providing you with extraordinary images that will last a lifetime.
On a personal note, my husband and I live in Sterling Heights, with our two dogs. We are grandparents to five adorable ones. We are very active in our church and in the homeless community. I enjoy volunteering for MCREST and running His Sandwich a food program for the homeless and poor in Detroit and all of Macomb county.
I hope that you enjoy my style and choose me to capture your family’s precious memories.
