We've had our annual family photo taken in Charlevoix by Aartvark for a over decade now. We like to mix things up each year and be photographed in different locations around town. The owner, Terry, works with us to capture a great series of photos in whatever setting we choose. He always gets our children to laugh and smile, too! The end product is fantastic and the prints are always completed before we head back downstate. We're very proud of the wall of Charlevoix family portraits in our home and have enjoyed working with Aartvark each year.

Photography services since 1974. You can't find that kind of experience and expertice just anywhere. Terry and Lynne Salmonson are as down to earth as they come... and great parents! I should know.
