Minneapolis Family Photographer

Your babies need portraits with you and of you in the frame. Your babies may be brand new, little munchkins, or close to adulthood. Every stage of life deserves to be documented in a beautiful way.

Custom Family Photography

The value of a photograph grows with time, for never again can that moment return. Every stage of life deserves to be documented in a beautiful way, and that’s what I’m passionate about.


Families In The Wild

Outdoor sessions are a beautiful way to incorporate a special place your family visits, like a favorite park.


Candid Family Moments

Let’s capture your family where the memories are made. I love these sessions because they create a snapshot of life in this moment. A little bit messy, a little bit imperfect but one hundred percent, you.


Tailored To You

hey hey! This is what I’m talking about! Does your family love to boat together? Do you play pond hockey in the winter? Do you have a favorite ice cream shop? Do you love to go up north together? I love to travel- let’s plan something fun!




We’ll explore your vision and expectations for your family session. I’ll assist with every detail from wardrobe to location!



The big day! Family sessions typically last 1-1.5 hours. We’ll share lots of laughs (and a little bit of chaos too) but rest assured, we’ll capture amazing memories of your family.


Ordering Appointment

Two to three weeks after your session, we'll meet to unveil your gallery in a beautiful slideshow. At this time, you may purchase albums, wall art, prints or digital files. Once your order arrives, I’ll deliver it directly to you and assist in hanging your wall art.
All sessions are custom. Collections start at $500. Please contact me to receive your family photography guide with full pricing information.


Matted Linem Album

Your family’s memories deserve to live on your coffee table or bookshelf where they can be viewed and enjoyed together everyday. Choose a luscious handcrafted linen or leather Luxe Album or a linen Storybook with beautiful eggshell paper. These albums are made to last and will be handed down over generations. Duplicate grandparent albums are a beautiful gift. Luxe albums start at 975.

kind words from happy families

- Stefanie H.

"Lauren is an amazing photographer with great attention to the small moments. She did our family session and we have some of the most memorable, beautiful photos of our family. She captured so many great moments that we didn't even know she was photographing. Lauren took the time to get to know our family and story. She was so great with the kids and getting great photos of them. This was the easiest picture taking we've ever done according to my husband! You will love the pictures you receive from Lauren Engfer! They are stunning!"
