The Gestring Family Portrait





Can You Feel The Love?

We could!

It isn’t everyday that every member of your extended family can get together at the same time! It is a hard thing to do it requires a commitment from everyone involved. Generally this happens because one or two people realize how much everything has changed. They value the connections.  Grandma and Grandpa announced prior to Christmas they would like a family portrait as their gift for the following year.

What a great idea it was! We were honored to be selected for this family event.

Family is something that we value too. Our mission has been to create images that will last for generations and be created to become family heirlooms. The images are a way to tell the story about the people who lived before you or, even more simply, that is how dad looked when he was younger. This is Great Great Grandma and Grandpa!  I get it!  Our desire is to give families the ability to share their story through the images we create.

These days are always fun, sometimes these events are planned, other times they can be more spur of the moment. Either way, take the time to create memories that will be enjoyed for generations!






We usually get together before the main meal, everyone arrives early and we create the images. We’ll have a consultation with you about colors, and ideas. We often check out locations in advance when we are not using one of our studio locations. We want your family to be as comfortable as possible.

The Gestring Family was awesome! They’d planned in advance, everyone was prepared and while we broke out into smaller groups, everyone else could hang out and catch up on what they had been up lately.

What groups do we do?  That is completely up to you.  We are there for you!



When your family is fabulous, you really love being together!  Everyone’s family is growing, this year this is how their family looks!  Next year?  Well, it is sure to grow!  What fun!

You’ve really got to enjoy the journey and create memories along the way!  There is nothing better than being around people who genuinely appreciate each other.






Hugs and kisses bundles of joy, these young families have many things to look forward to over the years, they will be able to look back on these images and remember when!  What beautiful young families!!








Families are always active, even though the nest may be empty, it was quite evident that there is always no place like home.  Mom is always the heart of the home.  In this family it is certainly true!



When you love someone, be sure to hold on tight and enjoy your journey, life has a way of passing by and the next thing you know, everything is different.  We really like taking as much time as we can to make something special.  This couple is adorable!



Even though they are different, you can still tell that they have fun together, brothers are only young once.  They’ve each got their futures unfolding before them!







Can you say Legacy!  What a beautiful Legacy the Gestrings have created!  I am sure they never imagined all of the lives that would be created because of their love.





Great Grandma, Grandma, Mom and Me!  Four generations of family.  It doesn’t get much better!




When you’ve got sisters, there is nothing better in this world than always knowing that someone has your back.  This mom loves her girls.  I wonder when the last time was that they had their pictures taken all together?





The family that plays together stays together!  This family is super fun!  Can’t you tell?  We sure enjoyed our day with them, and we feel so blessed to be a part of making something special for them!  We really believe that family portraits are so important.  The unexpected is right around the corner.  You’ll always be glad you did when you get together with us.  Give us a call so you aren’t later wishing you had.

Moments Make Memories!  Our creations will live for generations, and your story will be told.

Thank you to Brenda who found us and put her faith in our abilities to create just what her parents had in mind.

I think the thing we are most excited about is when she handed her parents the book she had us create for them, that her dad started to cry.

So happy!




Thank you! <3
