Family Portrait Photographer

Leisa Gibson is a modern and creative family portrait photographer based in Breckenridge & Edwards, Colorado, serving all of Summit County and the Vail Valley.

Leisa specializes in the family portraits, large and small. Her love of capturing these fun moments for families shows in the images she creates. She is known for her unique posing of kids with their parents and for treating clients like she would want her own family to be treated - with kindness, patience & respect.

Family portrait photography, senior portraits, engagements & elopements in the mountains. Leisa works on location or travels to your home or rented home. She does use lighting for some photos when the bright, snowy backgrounds demand it, but she also loves to use natural light and produces an impressive combination of posed and candid images from each session.

She books up quickly because she only schedules portrait sessions when the light is the best which means only twice a day; either in the morning or in the afternoon.

Please see her portfolio below and check out her blog to see some fun recent sneak peeks from sessions.

Must Love Dogs

Dogs are a huge part of our lives here in the mountains and I love photographing people with their furry best friends so they will have professional photos that they can treasure forever! Goodness knows these sweet friends of ours never last as long as we want them to.  Here are some of my favourite shots taken recently in Vail and Breckenridge.

I’ve worked with this family for a couple of years now and really enjoy photographing their family portraits for their holiday cards each year.

A new addition to the family?

Often times, it is the Matriarch of the family that calls me for a photo shoot of the extended family. It is she who books the house and arranges for all of her kids and grandkids to come out to the mountains to celebrate a reunion – for any reason. “Give us a reason to get together and we will!” said one of my clients.

More often than not, there is a fresh face in the family that they are all excited to see. I can help to celebrate the new arrival with photos! With the multigenerational family groups, I begin the photography with the entire group first, then break down into the separate families, followed by fun shots of the grandkids with grandparents, adult siblings, all cousins etc. Finally, we end the session on the lawn with a blanket and baby. The proud Grandparents always love being photographed with the little one and I truly enjoy these moments as well.

I always offer a mix of black & white as well as color too since so I am a fan of both!!

Thanks for the portrait session, Grandma!

 

Just dreaming of summer…

I love this family! This was our 3rd time photographing together and it was a blast.  We caught the very last light of day in the Vail Valley with the Gore Range in the background.

A Sweet Family in Cordillera

The Cook’s are loving their new baby and their new home in Cordillera! I had a blast working with this couple, their adorable baby and two sweet dogs. I hope to continue working with this little one over the years as that has become one of my favorite things to do. It’s so fun to see the change in the children from year to year and how they handle the photo sessions as they grow up is so interesting. They allow their personalities to shine a little more every time we meet.

Sweet Valentina ~

This girl is one of my all time, favorite shorties. She was an amazing little model for my recent kid’s clothing photo shoot for “Magical Scraps” in Breckenridge.
