FFTC’s Guide to Family Photographers in the Twin Cities

I love looking back at photos of my littles when they were teeny tiny.  And I  love pictures of them now, too.
We know you feel the same way, so we’ve collected a handful of our favorites from the Twin Cities to share them with you.

This post is brought to you by participating photographers.

Ashley Elwill Photography

Ever since we met her at Amy’s Cupcake Shoppe Grand Opening, we have discovered how much fun and how special Ashley is.  We highly recommend this talented lady.  Super easy-going, laidback, and serious about her work.

Photographer: Ashley Elwill | Minneapolis, On Location
Weddings and Portraits • $200-$300

MinnesotaHelpful Tips in Choosing a Photographer
  1. Look through different photographers’ portfolios  and decide your favorite styles.
    There is a plethora of techniques to choose from.  How do you want to remember your family?
  2. Meet with your photographer before you schedule a photo shoot.
    Do your kids warm up to them quickly?  Do they communicate in understandable ways? Are you smiling when you leave?  Do you have a good feeling about this?
  3. Use price as your final decision-maker, not your first.
    The prices are fairly comparable.  The more expensive packages include more in the session or in the package.
