Hi. I'm Connie, owner of Mintz Portrait Studio. I am located in downtown Vancouver, Washington. and serve Southwest Washington, Portland, Oregon and surrounding areas.
Your family portraits aren’t just about you — they are about your family's legacy, too. They are for the people that haven’t been born yet. Your future family will see how everyone looked, what they were wearing, and enjoy seeing their smiles and expressions. When your children get older and have their children, they are going to want to have these portraits to remember their loved ones. These portraits are a part of their legacy.
After I lost my mother, I found her photographs in old wooden boxes along with her wedding album. The wedding album portraits were mounted to wood and bound together in the most stunning album I had ever seen. The black and white photographs included pictures of her parents and grandparents and family. It was amazing to see and think about their lives. I was so excited to show these to my family. It’s hard to explain how deeply moved we were view these photographs together, as a family.
Printing your family portraits is really the only way to preserve memories. When I first started photographing, I delivered images on a CD, and now you can’t even purchase a laptop with a CD drive. So if you didn't backup your images or print them, they would be gone forever. But if you have prints or an album, your family can enjoy the photographs and your family's history forever.
At Mintz Portrait Studio, we specialize in capturing your family's story, and creating beautiful legacy artwork. Portraits displayed in your home are reminders of your love for each other, and will live forever on your walls as masterpieces.
We care about our work and create each portrait with a true artist’s passion. Everything we offer for display is carefully chosen and crafted with life-long protection to enhance the beauty of your family portraits.
We look forward to being part of your story!
There are very few things in life that you will invest in that will become priceless over time. Surrounded by the people you love, your family portraits will hang in your home for many years and become treasured keepsakes.

Connie and her team were amazing! Everything from preparing for the portrait session to purchasing was easy. I was provided with lots of information and help to make sure our clothing, hair, makeup etc would look great. The day was perfect. Connie was amazing with my three kids. They felt so comfortable with her and she got the most amazing photos of the kids and family. The process to preview the photos was a ton of fun. We got to go through all the photos and narrow them down to our favorites and discuss any edits. The entire process was easy, stress free, and a lot of fun. You will not be disappointed! – Shannon
Connie’s work is unique, vivid and beautiful. Our favorite part of our experience was to see our daughter blossom before our eyes. She grew in her beauty and grew in her confidence with Connie’s coaching throughout the entire session. –Mary O
Connie’s work is of exceptionally high quality. She is aware of so many extra details that make her portraits beautiful and unique. Connie was focused on bringing out my personality. I loved having the professional hair and makeup done! Connie is a master at giving clear instructions on how to pose so that the photos look great. Her lighting was perfect. Connie is genuinely interested in you and who you are, so she can capture your real personality. –Deb
I highly recommend Mintz Portrait Studio. Connie took our family portraits outdoors and spent time before the appointment scouting out the best spot and time of day to do the photo shoot. She also offered suggestions for coordinating our wardrobe and showed us some examples. During the photo shoot, she came up with some posing options that made the best of the light and location. Connie did a great job engaging my sons so they were relaxed in the pictures. I am very happy with our session and prints and recommend Connie for any of your portrait needs. – Kari F.
