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 takes the time to understand who you are and when you see the results it will blow you away how she captures your children and family. We went in with three girls, and to be honest my kids weren't in the best of moods. I left the session wondering and hoping she had something to work with. When we saw the images, we couldn't believe what she showed us. We now have beautiful portraits hanging in my home that will be treasured forever. — Ashley

I couldn’t be more pleased with not only the portraits, but the kindness, positivity and all-around family feel we experienced whilst going through this whole process. Connie is such a good human being and I just really appreciate her soul! Your work certainly reflects who you are as a person and that means YOU ARE AMAZING!! Thank you for everything you did for us and for capturing our family for a moment in time! – Beckie

What an amazing experience! Connie guided us every step of the way, from our outfits to posing. She was so great with the kids. It’s so great to capture the kids as they are at this age. Connie captured their personalities! A big thank you for including us in your motherhood project. — Cristina C.

Connie takes very lovely family portraits! She takes the time to get to know your family and takes a lot of time going through the photos with you, to pick the best ones. She is thoughtful in her posing and truly has a no-pressure attitude in the studio (this is especially helpful when you have children who may be less-than-willing participants.) I haven't seen the finished pictures yet, but even the proofs are fantastic, and really show something about everyone in the pictures. We would be happy to come back and use Connie again for our portrait needs! —Rachel A

My family was lucky enough to take part in Connie’s Motherhood Project. From the first phone call, she made this experience easy and fun. She helped with every detail of what to wear and helped keep it very low stress, even with kids running wild. Our time in the studio was so much fun, and the way she captured our family laughing and connecting reflects that. We recently had our preview appointment and are beyond thrilled with the variety of images she was able to capture in a short time. Connie’s work is beautiful, her kindness and open spirit set her apart, and I can’t recommend her highly enough. —Stephanie S.

Working with Connie was great. She has an eye for portrait composition. The final products were beautiful and will make great heirlooms for our children. These are NOT JCPenny portraits—these are art portraits to be framed and displayed prominently in a home. — Mara O.

We had such an amazing experience here! They made us feel beautiful and special. Hands down, the best experience I’ve ever had, taking family portraits. The value of having these lasting memories, I can’t even convey. Connie and her assistant were so fun, and we had so many laughs with them. I highly recommend having them capture photos of your family. — Elizabeth R

We are in love with our family portrait with Connie Mintz. We had a wonderful in studio experience and they were great working with our toddler and infant. Despite some whining and crying, which was to be expected with two little ones, they worked their magic and captured a beautiful moment in time that looks perfect - everyone looking their absolute best. I requested a couple small modifications when we received our proof, and they were addressed very efficiently. I recommend Connie Mintz Portraits if you are searching for a family keepsake that you will cherish forever! — Alyssa S

Connie was such a delight to work with! A complete transformation with hair and makeup, one-on-one styling and direction, and the overall studio experience truly made me feel like a “model for a day”. I could hardly believe the before and after pictures… I have never looked so glamorous and powerful at the same time! I wanted a photograph that captured both the feminine and strong aspects of my personality, and she really delivered. Her warm nature and enthusiasm combined with her expertise with lighting, composition and posing brings the best out of her subjects! I purchased several prints and I will cherish them forever. — Grace S

Why has it taken me so long to leave a review? I guess I assumed everyone already knew this! Connie and her assistant are amazing. Sweet people that really take the time to understand who the people are that Connie is photographing, and when you see the results, it blows you away just how well she has captured each person. I especially want to recognize her portraits of our family. We went in with our 3 girls, ages 5 and under, and I'll be honest-- my kids were not in the best moods. Connie of course takes wonderful newborn portraits (just look at her portfolio!), but to be able to capture such wonderful moments of my family with a newborn, a rambunctious 2-year-old, and a 5-year-old needing a nap? That was extraordinary. I walked out of the session wondering (wishing, hoping, praying) if she would have anything to work with. When we came back to see the results, we found a portrait that will hang in my home for the rest of my life. Phenomenal. — Ashley F

Connie is amazing! Everything from preparing for the pictures to purchasing was easy. I was provided lots of information and help to make sure our clothing, hair, makeup etc., would look great in the photos. The day of 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 Y.

We learned about Connie's work through the Evergreen School District fundraiser. We had a family portrait session and now have a beautiful keepsake of our family. She also took amazing individual pictures of the kids. Connie took the time to get to know each of us and made suggestions for colors and clothing, etc. At the studio, she really made us feel comfortable. Her lighting and posing is phenomenal and our entire family had a wonderful experience. It was a lot of fun. We couldn't be happier, and we are so impressed Connie's talent and organization. Thank you! — Wendy

I highly recommend Connie Mintz Photography. 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.

>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. –Dee

Connie did an amazing job with our two sons!!! Our newborn was a little restless but his pictures came out prefect and she even got great pictures of our two year old with his baby brother!!! She is a “must”, for a photographer for your family!!! — Nicole M.

>We couldn't have picked a better photographer for our newborn photo session. Connie and her assistant made my family feel comfortable and relaxed as she took her time making sure to capture the essence of my newborn son. Her professionalism and focus was reflected in the amazing photos she took of our family. — Kristina J.

Reasons why I loved Connie as our photographer:
1. Super nice lady. She made me feel very comfortable from the moment I showed up at her house.
2. She was very flexible about finding a way to make the two different photoshoots (maternity and newborn) work within my budget.
3. Her eye for photography is amazing. I hate pictures of myself and I love both my maternity photos and the baby and family photos we took after that baby came.
4. Willingness to work hard: She hosted my family of 5 for four hours while we did the family and baby shoot. Never did she make me feel like a bad mom even when 2 of my kids were being terrible listeners and fussing like crazy. And she spent countless hours re-touching a family photo where my son was smiling but had tears in his eyes. She saved the amazing shot with photoshop but it took a LOT of work. And she just kept at it until I was happy.
I would highly recommend Connie and Opal (her assistant who was fantastic) for a maternity, baby or family shoot! — Elisabeth D.

We chose Connie Mintz Photography since we were interested in quality family portraits and saw the opportunity at fund raising event. Connie is a caring personable artist who takes great pride in her work and in pleasing her customer. She has a special quality with lighting and outdoor colors. She spends time catching the right lightings and moods. My favorite part of the experience was getting into the moment and allowing it to be captured. We truly value her work and will enjoy our portraits for years to come! — Joy B.

We have been nothing but impressed with Connie's work! We had our first session when our son was 10 days old, and not only was she patient with us (a family learning to balance life with two children), but she was also very good with our children and gave us some of the best pictures we have ever seen! Now that our "baby" is now three, we again reached out to Connie to get more pictures! They were stunning! The lighting and personality she captured so effortlessly! We are so blessed to have had her take our children's pictures! She is so talented and we will cherish her pictures forever! Can't wait for another session with Connie Mintz Photography next year! Highly recommend using Connie Mintz Photography if you want amazing pictures! — Annie D.

There are many options when choosing a newborn photographer in this area. I spent time looking at the photographs of a variety of photographers in the Vancouver/Portland area. I chose Connie because it was obvious in her work that she is not justanother photographer with a camera, she is an artist. She has an eye for composition and knows how to set the stage. Her newborn and fine art images also show incredible attention to detail and a strong editing ability. She is also creative and likes to try different things. Our son's photos turned out beautifully and we were so pleased with the outcome. It can be a risk when you select one person to capture a time of your baby's life that you won't get back and we were not disappointed! We recommend her whole heartedly. In addition, the time we spent at her studio was comfortable, professional, and very relaxing (she leaves out snacks and allows new parents to lounge around during the photo shoot. How many new parents get that chance 10 days after their bundle of joy enters the world?!). — Kristen E.

Connie does family photography for my magazine, Felida Fine Living. She takes great pride in her work and I am never disappointed in the beautiful cover shots she does for me every month, as well as a few for the inside story. She is a whiz with Photoshop and can make anyone look great! — Laura M.

Connie is more than a photographer; she is an artist! She is truly a master of the lens and does the most adorable baby pictures possible! Not only can she manage babies with apparent ease, but she can also photograph all ages and make you feel like a superstar in the process. Her sweet personality just adds to the fun of the photo shoot. I highly recommend — Sue S.

We've had two photoshoots with Connie. We love our pictures, and she was great to work with! Our baby can be a little shy and she was great about giving her the space she needed to feel comfortable. Highly recommend!" — Gina G.

We couldn't have been more pleased with our portraits. Connie is an expert on how to get baby portraits to turn out perfectly. The time and attention they took to get everything just right was over the top and we will definitely be back again. Our experience was a night and day difference compared with the last photos we got, and I would definitely recommend Connie Mintz Photography to my friends and family! The photos Connie took for our holiday gifts far exceeded my expectations. She was able to capture my boys at their best -- not always an easy task! Our images had an almost magical quality to them, and our family were absolutely WOWED by them. We will definitely be using her again next year. — Jenn S.
