Capture natural and enduring family portraits with professional family portraits to be adored for a lifetime.

Children and young adults are curious, spontaneous, imaginative, energetic, and sometimes completely unpredictable. When planning your family portraits with a two-year-old that won’t sit still is a wonderful challenge to have. Our advice is to let go of any expectations of cooperation and think more along the lines of a family play-date. This does not have to be a formal family portrait session- your memories of our session should bring back memories of natural joy and beauty.

Don’t prepare your family for “family portrait day”. This expectation may result in unnecessary stress for everyone. Depending on the style of family portraits you want, children are sometimes encouraged to run around and play, jump, cuddle or get a little sandy on the beach. Our main goal is to capture connections, emotions, spontaneous expressions and natural smiles that not only bring back great memories of the day with your family but capture it to enjoy for years to come.

If your goals are less of a documentary style and more of a formal family portrait, Artisan Portrait will ensure your expectations are met with a formal session either outdoors or our indoor studio.  







" We had a great family portrait experience with Kibbee and Artisan Portrait, and I can't recommend him highly enough if you are looking to invest in quality work. We currently live in New York, but grew up in the Northwest, and when we were back to visit family recently, decided to get some outdoor portraits. Kibbee found the exact kind of location we wanted near a river outside Post Falls, and got to work on lighting and background. Kibbee's humor and knowledge of what he was looking for got my daughters smiling and relaxed, and he took his time to get a number of poses/locations so we had many options to choose. We picked a number of portraits (both solo and family shots) and Kibbee had them framed and shipped directly to us in New York. Enjoyed the experience Kibbee. Thanks! "

" I hate having my picture taken. My wife loves family pictures and I will always oblige. That being said, Kibbee was great to work with. He worked wonders with my 5 year old and 15 month old, and even more challenging, he made me comfortable and I may have even had some fun.

Even more is the rest of the services he offers, even helping you create a display for a specific area of your home. I'm a manager in customer service, and not easily impressed. With a new "photographer" popping up all the time, Kibbee and Artisan set themselves apart as true professionals and gifted artists "

"Highest level of professionalism. He really spends the time to understand who the subject is, and what they want, BEFORE he starts shooting. Then he is a master at capturing the real essence of people through the camera. A true Artist."

"Hands down best commercial photo shoot I've ever had done for my company. Kibbee is an extremely talented professional."
