About Us

Mom-Owned Photography Business

Our story began in the early 2000s when Sandy & Michael Pawlyszyn were searching for a new opportunity to create a fun, family business. Long-time Minneapolis natives, they wanted to use their skills to build something that would make a positive impact on families and the Twin Cities community. In the summer of 2007, they found CLIX Portrait Studios, a national photography franchise, and opened up shop in Maple Grove.

More than a decade later, CLIX is proud to be a leading “Mom-owned” photography business, with a team of experienced professionals and an updated studio in Deephaven. We specialize in volume youth photography, working with many child care centers, dance studios, schools, and sports teams to provide friendly on-location and in-studio photography services.

We are in the business of capturing life’s moments. Whether it’s a child laughing and playing or a senior in high school getting ready to leave the nest, our job is to capture the memory in a photograph. It’s the best job in the world.
