About Kara Zylstra Photography

Hey! I 'm Kara. I have been doing photography for 9 years. I just love capturing all these special moments! I specialize in maternity, newborns, babies & families. I also love capturing all the happiness and love of a wedding day! 

I have a studio on main street in Lake Odessa as well as farm land outside of town I use for most of my outdoor sessions. I am willing to travel for sessions & love coming to your homes for sessions. My studio is a perfect space to capture your little ones or for an intimate maternity session. I have a cozy bed space I love to use for any studio session. Mom & me sessions are adorable on it! I have a small collection of gowns available for maternity sessions as well as outfits for babies between 3 & 12 months old. I have props in every color for newborn sessions. I have taken many classes on newborn posing & safety.


Now, a little about me. 
I am married to an amazing husband (prop maker) & we have 5 adorable (but really loud) kiddos. Our life is a bit crazy but we wouldn't have it any other way! We live just outside of town on a small farm. We have horses & chickens at our place & my husband raises beef cattle at the family farm. I love biggby coffee & diet pepsi, staying up late & sleeping in, cuddling babies, my great pyrenees (giant) puppy is my best friend & Ludington is my favorite place to be. I love grey's anatomy & any chicago show.
