Family Portraits with Summer Street Photography -

Minneapolis and Saint Paul


Our goal while photographing families is to include just a little bit of the chaos and unpredictability life with kids can bring, and to fully capture the incredible love and joy children bring to our lives.

Someone wiser than us once said that the phase of having babies and kids in your life is the longest, shortest time. In the thick of it days go on and on, but the years zip by in a blink. This is why we value yearly professional photography sessions of our own family and why you should too.

Technology and camera phones have come a long way in quality, but how often are you *in* the photos with your children? We love capturing how your babies look at you when they are scared or shy, and the embrace you give them day after day to show them how loved and safe they are.

We offer traditional family sessions which last about an hour and always include some play time to warm kids up. We also offer a 'Grow with Me' package which makes for a fantastic gift for new parents and includes a Maternity, Newborn, 6 month and 1 year shoots and hardcover Album of all the photos. A few times a year we also offer Family Mini Sessions which are short and sweet and give you a few images to update the frames in your house or send a nice Holiday Greeting.
