Child Photography in Minnetonka, Minnesota

Why should professional photos of your child be reserved for birth, graduation, or special occasions? At CLIX, we believe all of life’s little moments are worth capturing. One day that little boy who needs to hold your hand to cross the street is going to tower over you. Imagine how much you will treasure photos of him as he is now when he gets older.

It’s true; professional photography is an investment. But it’s one that preserves your memories. Our team has been perfecting our child photography skills for over a decade, and we always seem to catch something magical. Have a look at our gallery of child photography below, and if you like what you see, give us a call! We’ll work closely with you from the get-go to plan and execute a session that captures your child’s unique personality and interests.

  • Schedule your session around nap times, and make sure your kiddo is well rested and well fed.
  • Set your expectations and then go “lighter.” Toddlers, in particular, have a mind of their own and sometimes do not want to cooperate. We can always schedule a reshoot if necessary.
  • Bring multiple outfits; if the session is going well, you may want to try more outfits and backgrounds.
  • Discuss “bribes” with your photographer. If there is a special treat or reward you’d like to use when needed, please let your photographer know so it can be pulled out at the best time. (Food/treats are not a good bribe during the session, as it can be messy and ruin that outfit!)
  • Share any “favorites” with the photographer. For example, if your daughter loves Disney princesses, the photographer can use that to get smiles.
  • Don’t yell “Cheese” during the session or coach your kid on how to smile before or during the photoshoot. Children are very good at expressing emotions; it’s our job to help them feel relaxed so we can capture natural smiles and expressions.
  • Stay calm and have fun. We all know kids can sense our stress, so keep calm and photograph on!
The standard studio appointment at CLIX is one hour. We plan for approximately 20 minutes in the studio camera room, and then about 40 minutes in the private viewing room. Of course, this can vary, and we certainly will book more time as needed.
The standard studio process at CLIX:
  • Schedule an appointment – CLIX has many backdrop options, please share any preferences when making an appointment so that we can have your backdrops ready to go for you. But, if you do not have any expectations, you can discuss ideas with your photographer upon arrival.
  • Arrive for your session – meet your photographer and discuss expectations
  • Capture great images in studio.
  • Move to a private viewing room to view and order prints. In most cases, images can be available same day or next day. We print all photos onsite!
  • Don’t have time to view/order? With a deposit, images can be loaded online for viewing at home.
