A Note from Tom
I developed an early interest in photography thanks to my father who shared his photographic hobby with me in the mid 70's. Our photography business is named in his memory. It is our love and dedication to family that inspires us to capture your story and preserve it for generations to come.

Creating a Family Heirloom

Family. Such a small word with a life‐changing impact. Our families teach us, guide us, inspire us, and are there for us our entire lives. A family portrait can retain those memories, even as life changes.

Whether it’s capturing the precious moments and anticipation of expectant parents, the innocence of a newborn, the precociousness of a child, or the loving embrace of a grandparent, a professional family portrait is an heirloom for all generations.  We will work with you to achieve the heirloom portrait that captures the uniqueness of your family.  Whether it is fun and spontaneous, or serene and formal, your portrait will be treasured for generations to come.


There are often places or things that have special meaning, and often become like a part of the family. Whether it’s your home, the family cabin, a special campsite or other favorite family location, why not bring that special touch into your portrait? We will take your portrait at the location of your choosing. (travel charges apply outside the Twin Cities area)
