Meet Okemos Studio

ROLAND & MARYLOU GIFFORD

Okemos Studio of Photography began as a small studio in the basement of a North Lansing house. Since then, Roland Gifford has built this small business into one of the leading portrait studios in the Lansing area. Throughout his career, Roland has photographed countless people, events, even animals on safari, winning several awards along the way.  His success is due in part to the support of MaryLou, his wife of 44 years.

MaryLou is also a vital part of Okemos Studio, helping with the studio accounting and offering valuable advice. Roland and MaryLou have five children and six grandchildren.

 

 

 

 

KATHI MITCHELL

Kathi Mitchell has been with the studio for over 27 years, after gradutating from Michigan State University with a Bachelor's in Mathematics. She is a photographer, but her time for sessions is limited, as she is also an owner and office manager, which as you can imagine, keeps her busy!

For over 25 years, Kathi and her husband, Ron, worked together at the studio, but now he has retired and gets his studio updates every day when she gets home. Ron and Kathi have been married for over 25 years and have a beautiful 18 year old daughter at college, and too many animals at home!
