We truly love taking photographs. Engaging with our clients, creating amazing images, building bonds, making new friends and reconnecting with long time clients. Our greatest joy is being able to give you images that you can hold onto and treasure for years to come.

Every stage of life should be celebrated with wonderful portraits.A bright eyed infant becomes a toddler and that toddle turns into a run all to quickly. Then on to elementary and high school - college - you start a family...and so it goes.

There are so many special moments that can live on in pictures. Trust us to capture those moments for you and your family to keep and enjoy.

Our studio has been helping families make amazing memories in Bay City since 1948. Over our long history we’ve mastered all styles and techniques of portrait photography, from classic to lifestyle. Families, children, senior pictures or pets, we love photographing them all!

At Bradford’s we have a large camera room with a huge selection of backgrounds. If pictures outside are more your style, being located in the historic district, we can offer you many beautiful choices of setting right outside our door. Of course, location portraits at your favorite spot are a great option too. It could be your home, cottage, on your boat, at a park or beach. Count on us to make it the perfect choice for your portrait.
