Three Generations Newborn Photography

Nicholas came into the studio for his newborn portraits with Mom, Dad and Grandpa and Grandma.  It was such a privilege to photograph three generations in this newborn photo session.  Grandpa and Grandma were so in love with Nicholas and it shows in the tender images.  The beautiful connection between baby and grandparents really shows.

We had so much fun with Nicholas.  We used a neutral pallet of grays and creams to show off his rosy skin and silky dark hair. Plus, we used a Christmas theme to show the time of year he was born.  His adorable cheeks were almost too much!  We wanted to try something new, so we put Nicholas in a wreath of greens and mom and dad were so happy with the images.  Truly stunning!!

Mom and Dad are so photogenic!  The photos really show their loving bond as  a new family. And how cute is the name Nicholas for a Christmas baby?

Grandparents and Newborns

Three generations were photographed in this session. Grandmother and Grandfather were so excited to be part of it. It was Christmas time and what an amazing gift!

Baby Bump Photography

Pregnancy is the most unique and intimate experience of a woman’s life. You have created life inside of you and will spend the next 9 months nurturing both of you.  It’s filled with tremendous highs and much emotion. It’s an incredible journey with the most amazing result at the end of the road! Baby bump photography is an amazing way to capture the essence of your relationship with your unborn child, highlight the beauty of pregnancy, and document the journey of creation.

That’s why it’s important to find a photographer that will make you feel comfortable yet confident during this photo session. Connie Mintz Photography would like to work with you! We would like to make you look and feel beautiful! We provide our services in Portland, Oregon; Vancouver, Washington; and the surrounding areas. We understand the needs of our pregnant clients. We strive to create a comfortable and welcoming environment in all of our sessions so that everyone can feel fresh and relaxed. I believe that a pregnant body is nothing to be shy about; it’s one of nature’s most unique and beautiful creations and a joy to photograph. We even offer beautiful maternity dresses, skirts and props that we can incorporate into your photographs as well.

Elisabeth came into the studio for baby bump photos. she is the mother of two small children. It’s very exciting that they don’t know the sex of the baby. She told us how she has very little time for herself. She had never had professional portraits taken of her other two children or while she was pregnant. Since this most likely will be their last child, she decided to hire a professional photographer for baby bump portraits. And doesn’t she look radiant and gorgeous?

This beautiful mother to be, came into the studio for Baby Bump Portraits. Already a mother of two little ones, she decided to have professional newborn portratis and maternity photos. She hadn’t done either with the first two and considering that this might be her last, she wanted to record the memory of her gorgeous baby bump! We used maternity gowns, dresses, high key photography and fans to create the images. So happy to make this awesome mom feel and look gorgeous!

You can find me by searching the web for Baby Bump Photography or Newborn Photographer in Vancouver WA. Please visit my image galleries at

If you would like to schedule a baby bump session, it’s best to contact me a few months in advance.  That way we can work together to schedule a time, usually 28-34 weeks into your pregnancy. This is the perfect time because you should still be feeling good, you can use your cutest maternity outfits, and your bump will be beautifully round!

If you have any questions or want to schedule an appointment feel free to call me at 360-606-7313, or send me an email through my contact page.

Baby Photographer Vancouver Washington

This little guy came to visit us in the studio for his pushing up milestone. He has the cutest smile and most beautiful eyes. It didn’t take much to get this guy smiling and we got so many cute images. We will be seeing him again at his sitting up milestone, since we are so lucky to have this cutie on our baby plan.

Babies are the cutest subjects to photograph. Babies bring joy and dreams to our hearts and proud parents want to forever keep these moments!

As a baby photographer, nothing makes me happier than capturing baby’s  unique personality and beauty. Photographing babies energizes me because the possibilities are infinite. When you see the photos I take, I want you to remember how little they were with their tiny toes, silky tuft of hair, and heavenly smiles, which will be the memories of the new life you celebrate.

Your baby’s photographs are a journey into the past, so make sure you choose a baby photographer that will document these special moments, capturing every detail. Because I know the importance of this phase in your life, I celebrate you, your baby, your love, and your milestones through my lens.

I always aim to capture genuine connections between my subjects, so my sessions result in a unique mixture of both classic portraiture and more lifestyle-based imagery. There is nothing I enjoy more than bringing out a baby’s true personality and to convey that in photographs.

My studio is the little haven where I capture and create your family’s cherished moments, but I also photograph on location. Vancouver, Washington has a plethora of gorgeous locations.

In July 2015, I started working as the photographer for, “Felida Fine Living” – A Social Magazine for the Residents of the Felida/Salmon Creek Area. I was asked to be the photographer for the, “Meet Your Neighbors” article, featuring one of the Felida or Salmon Creek neighborhood families each month.

Little did I know how rewarding it would be meeting my neighbors! Felida/Salmon Creek is a small neighborhood in Vancouver Washington. Our kids go to Felida or Chinook Elementary and Skyview or Columbia River High School. It is truly a small well connected community and I feel so fortunate to be meeting these wonderful families!

August 2015 Issue- Felida Fine Living

My first assignment was the Foote family. Even though they live a few short blocks from my home, I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting them before the photo shoot. The Foote family started, The Trey Foote Foundation, in memory of their son Trey, who lost a battle with cancer, in hopes of bringing awareness to childhood cancer. The foundation helps fund an annual college scholarship for a chosen Skyview High School senior.

September 2015 Issue-Felida Fine Living

The September issue of Felida Fine Living, featured the Millers. The Millers have lived on the same property for six generations! What started out as a homestead and an orchard of Italian prunes, ended as an upscale planned community. Still to this day, there are four families, the Millers and their children’s families living on the property in four homes. In the middle of modern development, the original barn that was moved to be among the four homes is now a gathering place for dinners and family gatherings.

January 2016 Issue – Felida Fine Living

The January issue is one of my favorites! I met Bob and Jonelle on a sunny Fall day  when we got together for a photo session. Janelle is very active on a dragon boat team and Bob enjoys landscape photography. It didn’t take long for us to start talking shop. Bob and I have already been out shooting landscapes at the grist mill with amazing fall colors.. The most fun was heading to Vancouver Lake to take photos of the dragon boat team. I went out on the boat to capture the excitement of an early morning dragon boat ride.
