the matulonis family
It is always a pleasure working with this adorable family. The kids were all smiles and so well behaved. It's so wonderful to capture pure, genuine joy! They chose to have photos taken at their family home to create an extra special backdrop for their captured memories. Here are a few of my favorites from their session. Enjoy!
the combs family
The Combs family wanted to have their photos taken with all the beautiful natural fall elements Michigan gives us. We met at Independence Oaks Park in Clarkston 2 hours before sunset so we could utilize the beautiful golden tones of the sunset. Here are a few of my favorite images from their session. Enjoy!

the kirk family
This is the second time I have had the pleasure working with the Kirk Family. It has been fun watching their sweet baby girl grow. We met at the Clarkston Family Farm and had a great time laughing and enjoying all the beautiful backgrounds the farm provided for their shoot. Here are a few favorites from their session. Enjoy!
No two families are exactly alike… each family session is planned, taking your style and preferences into account.
Every session starts with a conversation where we will discuss your vision for your photographs and that is where the planning begins. Every last detail is considered to create a one of a kind boutique photography experience so you can treasure the memories of your family for a lifetime.
The ideal time to photograph families is two hours before sunset. It provides a warm glow and gorgeous sky colors from the setting sun.
My studio is located just a few miles north of Historical Downtown Clarkston. I serve Southeast Michigan and the Metro Detroit areas. I have clients that have traveled from all over the state of Michigan for their customary family photo sessions.
Contact the studio today for more information. I cannot wait to be your family’s photographer. Together we will create one of a kind piece of art about the people you love the most.
WHETHER YOUR FAMILY IS GROWING IN NUMBERS OR THE KIDS GOT A LITTLE TALLER THIS YEAR, PHOTOGRAPHY IS THE PAUSE BUTTON ON LIFE… CAPTURING YOUR FAMILY AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME IS SO IMPORTANT.
Let's get the conversation started! I am excited to hear all about your family! Who is the goofball of the group? What do you like to do for fun? Does the dog want to join in on the fun?
Based on your preferred method of contact, I will reach out to you via email or by phone to chat with you about my sessions and the experience you can expect by hiring me to be your photographer. I will also ask you some questions regarding your preferences to make sure I am a good fit for you and your family.
1. Say Hello
2. Design consultation
After our initial contact we will schedule a virtual meeting to get the fun started. During our consultation together we will start designing the perfect session for you. No detail is left out and all your preferences are taken into consideration.
During the consultation I will show you all of my product offerings and go over all investment information with you. My goal for this meeting is to leave no questions unanswered so we are both prepared for your shoot. Let's get you booked!
Your big day has finally arrived! Nervous? Excited? No matter how you’re feeling, I am going to be there guiding you and posing you in the BEST that feature your most amazing characteristics. When you arrive, we will take about 15 minutes and pick your wardrobe from my client closet. Then it’s time to shine! Sessions usually take 90 minutes to an hour for maternity and family sessions. Newborn sessions usually take 2-3 hours depending on how baby is settling between poses.
3. Let's Make magic
This is arguably the most exciting part of the experience (other than receiving your final images, of course!) This appointment is scheduled for a date within 2-weeks of your session and is where you will view your soft-proofed images for the first time, choose your favorites, and place your order! While I do not fully edit all images for this appointment, I do fully master retouch a few images so you will have an idea of what your final images will look like!
During this appointment, we will narrow down your images together and you will decide if you would like to purchase a collection of images or a piece of wall art created specifically for you or both!
4. Viewing and ordering appointment
The day is here, you get to take your gorgeous custom artwork home to display, enjoy and share with family and friends. I will send you home with all the information on how to care for your artwork to insure it lasts a lifetime.

A photograph is the pause button of life...
Our photography session allows you to preserve special moments forever! Together we will create amazing photos that you can enjoy for many years to come. And pieces of art that can be passed on for generations. My goal is to provide a custom boutique photography experience for you and your family. Each session is tailored to your requests and preferences down to every last detail.
I would recommend Kat over and over again. She made the whole maternity and newborn picture experience so special and comfortable. She even endured my whole family with our suitcases of clothes...which I realized I didn’t need! She has an amazing set up. The photos were phenomenal and even the way she delivers them to you is so special. I can’t wait for my little guy to grow so we can plan our next shoot!
I highly recommend Kat Figlak Photography! She did our family photos and I am SO in love with them. She made the whole family feel so comfortable and was even able to get my very serious 2 year old to smile in all the pictures!! They are seriously the best photos we have ever taken and I will cherish them forever! I'll be using Kat every year for family pictures:)
For 8+ years me and my husband had dealt with infertility and loss. We decided over a year ago to start our journey with IVF and by the grace of God we were blessed with a successful transfer on our first try. I never imagined I would get to experience every milestone from the little kicks, the growing bump, to the crazy cravings.
I found Kat on so many platforms with so many people recommending her work and when i say I needed her I really did! This pregnancy is so important to me and my husband and i wanted someone who I knew could capture my journey perfectly.
Let me start by saying she is very thorough and explains in detail her work, packages, and pricing. There is nothing left unsaid, So you know what your investing in. The day of the shoot she had such a huge selection of dresses to choose from that whatever you envision she has or will make it happen! During the shoot she makes you feel comfortable and safe. She always checked to make sure I was ok with the different position as well. As coaching me. And I loved how she was willing to do whatever to make sure I was satisfied. She’s so sweet and nice and truly cares about her clients. We’ve also hired her for our newborn pictures because i know they will be just as amazing work! Thank you so much Kat! She’s more than a photographer she’s an artist capturing important moments in everyone’s lives.
I want to offer an enjoyable experience and to showcase a gorgeous part of your life's legacy. I will be by your side each step of the way, let's chat! I do my best to contact you within 48 hours Monday through Friday.
