Family Experience

Our Family Photo Gallery is a great source for Family Pictures, Headshots, Pet Photography and Fashion Photography. 2014 Twin Cities Photographer of the Year.


Welcome to the Family

We create family heirlooms, precious memories, and images that are truly timeless.

The Importance of Family Photography

We all have times in our lives that we look back on and think “I wish…" Think about how fast children grow up... We ask every high school Senior we photograph if they have ever been professionally photographed and the answer is overwhelmingly, "no." With the hustle and bustle of modern life, an occasion that brings an entire family together is a rare event. We can’t stop the clock but we can capture this moment and create a lasting memory! But for us to do this, you have to decide that the time is now, not in an ‘I wish’ moment! You’ll be glad you did!

Family Frequently Asked Questions

What if we have no time? What will we wear? How do I coordinate my crazy family?

Family portraits shouldn’t be stressful. When you book a session with NP Design & Photography, we will assist you with wardrobe consultation, location ideas, and finished product selections that will be displayed in your home. Whether it be a traditional or formal in-studio look, or a contemporary location style, we’ll work together to fulfill your vision.

When do you typically take family photos?

We do family portrait sessions throughout the year so plan around your favorite family activities. Sessions can include immediate family or extended families. We even photograph your family pets!

How long will this take? What if I don't know what to expect?

Most sessions last about an hour or so. We are with you every step of the way, from the initial pre-consultation, to capturing the images, and through the final selection and order process. 

Remember...wall portraits are personalized home furnishings.  They will be worth more to you as the years pass...more than anything else you can purchase for your home.
