Deborah Ouellette is simply amazing! Her experience and warm personality guides you into creating the perfect image. As a model, dancer, and pageant competitor, Deborah is my ‘go-to’ photographer because I know the outcome will always be phenomenal! I have won and placed numerous times in photogenic competitions at pageants and dance competitions both regional and national! I recommend Deborah Ouellette Photography to anyone seeking a friendly atmosphere to capture life’s moments.

– K. Pitts (Coldwater, MI)

Deborah Ouellette is an amazing artist. Her subjects may be our children, but the images that she is able to capture represent their truest selves, it’s like she’s know them their whole lives. Deb doesn’t just “take pictures”, she has the ability to know the exact second when the deepest layer of my child’s personality is about to shine through, and that’s the image that she is able to get.

Anyone can yell “say cheese” and click the button on their camera, but Deborah is the first photographer who can see my girl for who she is and reflect her back to me as I see her. My daughter is multi-layered: she is happy, she is silly, she is serious, she is so many things and Deb gets it. My daughter connects with her because she is loving, kind and sincere. Kid’s know when they have a met a “good soul” and anyone who has had the pleasure to meet and work with Deborah know, that she is one in a million.

Deborah always takes the most amazing photos! She really has “an eye” for catching that perfect shot every time. Her professionalism and patience are second to none. Thanks to Deborah my daughter has won countless photogenic competitions.

Deborah Ouellette’s photos of my daughter, Christina, are always a winner. Christina has won numerous photogenic contests with Deborah’s photos. Couldn’t ask for a more professional photographer who knows her stuff!! If you want quality photos, Deborah is the one. Plus, you always have fun at the session which makes both the photographer and subject so comfortable. Keep up the good work!!

– T. Zitkus (Northville, MI)

Deborah, we can’t thank you enough for the outstanding work you have done capturing the beauty of our daughter. The expertise, passion, and persistence you demonstrated during the photo-shoot with Lydia brought out her charm and confidence. Your ability to capture just the right smile with just the right “twinkle” is amazing.

The photos you took of Lydia helped her to win the National American Miss 2016 Pre-Teen Photogenic competition and the Top Model competition. Lydia credits the time spent with you during her photo shoot that allowed her to be so confident in the Top Model competition. You are truly a gifted photographer and we can’t wait to see the beauty you can capture and the creativity that you bring to the next photo shoot. See you soon and thank you!

Best pictures ever taken of my daughter! Deb got her best smile! With Debs pictures my daughter placed for the first time in photogenic! Worth every penny spent to have these pictures take! My daughter progressed in her photo shoot like a little model! Deb is the best!

 – A. Dailing (Lincoln Park, MI)

Deb is an amazing photographer. She is so much fun and energetic to work with. I love how she is willing to travel for an outdoor photo shoot as well.

– D. Cole (Lansing, MI)

Deb has photographed my daughter for the past three years and her photos have always won or placed in the photogenic category at every national pageant! Deb also took the pictures for my daughter’s comp card. As always, Deb’s work makes its mark! My daughter just signed on with an agency! My daughter also dances, so we’ll be headed to Deb when she needs pictures for dance auditions.

On top of her exceptional work, we truly enjoy the time spent with Deb in the studio. She makes it fun, and is always mindful of my daughter’s feelings. Best of all, she provides her professional opinion on clothing and accessory choices, yet is great about letting my daughter pick out what she wants to wear for the shoot. From selecting clothing choices to choosing images … we love collaborating with Deb!
