I am passionate, an endless optimist and maybe a bit sensitive too. My life journey as a woman, wife and mother has truly taken me to places I never imagined in my never-ending journey as a photographer. My children have been the inspiration for much of my work. It is for this reason I chose to specialize in mostly children and families. There is nothing I would love more to than to capture the true essence and special bond within a family.

One thing that has become so evident is that our children grow wings and fly before we are ready to let them go. I hope you choose to allow me the privilege of documenting, that which is most special to you. - Your family. Your story.
In addition to being a full time photographer, I also homeschool our five children, three boys and two girls. I am determined to learn how to crochet in my spare time too (Yeah, right!), but that hasn't happened yet.
I hope to hear from you soon!

Hi Friend!
My name is Vanessa Horning, and I am the owner of VBH Photography! I am a firm believer that life is beautiful and I absolutely love photography and all it has done for me as a person. I have such a love for the art, I don’t think you can ever “arrive” as a perfect photographer and I know that I will be working to grow in my craft always.

I was born and raised in Petoskey. I left for 8 years as my husband and I served in the military but relocated back home in 2008. I love what I do, but above all, I love my family. I spend most of my free time chasing my five wonderful children and spending time with my husband. I am a true homebody, but I love to explore and travel to experience new cultures, sights, and sounds.
