Family Photographers In Minneapolis

Portraits Your Whole Family Will Love

Between busy schedules and seemingly endless to-do lists, most families these days could benefit from a little more time spent together. Let us help you create memories and capture this moment in time with a fun family photo session in the Minneapolis area!

At CLIX, we love capturing families just being themselves – in or outside our studio, or on location at a nearby park! Our skilled photographers make the experience fun and relaxing, while giving helpful direction and coaxing out natural smiles in order to capture everyone at their best. A lot of the families we work with tell us that their family portraits are among their most valuable and treasured possessions. Make the time and call us today to book a session! We are confident that our team can deliver gorgeous, meaningful images your family will cherish for generations.

  • Plan ahead! Book your appointment and determine your outfits at the same time. Do not wait to decide what you are wearing an hour before the photo session.
  • You do not need to over-engineer the matching outfits. Yes, some families like coordinating outfits, but even then you don’t necessarily have to be in the same color. Greys, blues, whites, and neutrals all mix well together. And if matchy-matchy is not you, just don’t wear a lot of bold patterns.
  • Make sure babies and young children are well rested and well fed. Plan your session around nap times.
  • Manage your expectations. In most family sessions, the adults are actually the worst participants because they want everything to be “perfect.” But the truth is, oftentimes the casual “outtakes” turn out to be your favorite images.
  • If you have small children, let your photographer know of any agreements or “bribes” so that they can use them when needed.
  • Adults: Once posed, please stay focused on the photographer as they will work on getting the children to look at the camera with a great smile. It is your job to keep smiling and looking at the camera – not at all the goofy things the photographer is doing to help the children.
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 for on location family photo sessions.
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 or on location.
  • 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.
