We create art for your walls that happens to be your family! With a unique blend of authentic expression and dramatic artistry, your portraits will become family heirlooms to be handed down for generations.

Connie Mintz Portrait Art is about bringing families, friends and couples together. That is why we plan your photographic experience with you from the beginning to get a true understanding of what you value and enjoy the most about each other. 

Indoor studio sessions takes place in my downtown Vancouver WA Studio and can be scheduled during business hours.  Outdoor sessions are usually scheduled during the Golden Hour, which is about one hour after sunrise or two hours before sunset.  Each session typically takes about an hour or two, depending on the session type.  Sessions are limited during Spring, Summer and Fall so if you're thinking about a family session this year, contact us right away to start planning and to reserve a time for you.

Where do we start? 

Are you ready to book a session? I want your family portrait session to have a sense of fun, relaxation and a true representation of your family. Before the session, we will meet to get to know one another, and discuss your expectations, ideas, and goals. Preparation and communication are the key to a successful portrait experience. We want to learn what is important to you for us to capture... your family, your children or your child's imagination (please see different session types below). Then, we will find the perfect collection for your home. Finally, we set a date for the photo session and the reveal & design consultation!

Together, we plan the location, clothing, style, and the places in your home where you would like to hang your portraits. We decide on the best time that fits with everyone’s schedules and to assure you have well rested children and gorgeous light. We work hard to put together a portrait plan that captures your family and showcases its unique personality and emotion.

We offer much advice on clothing and style. We have an in depth "Getting Ready Guide", that assists with styling your session and we also have an informative PINTEREST BOARD with some great ideas.

Where are the portraits taken?

The studio is a great place for classic portraiture with amazing lighting, while the outdoors for family sessions can preserve memories of the home where you raised the children, others want their images to be at a location that would make a great backdrop for your family’s portraits.

Family sessions are typically held outdoors, in the early evening golden hour, or first light of dawn. There are plenty of locations that would make a great backdrop for your family’s portraits – woodland areas, a park, an urban neighborhood, a friend’s farm, even an old junkyard! Since every child and family is unique, I am happy to help you choose a location that suits your family’s personality.

What happens after the session?

This is where it all comes together! We have a reveal & design appointment where we use our state-of-the-art projection system to show you the images large enough so you can see everyone’s expressions, compare similar images and preview what they will look like at various sizes in your home or office. At this time, you will pick your favorite images and we will be there to offer guidance and make sure all of your questions are answered. You’ll place your order and leave the studio with excitement and confidence about your order!
