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.

A Senior Portrait Session in Breckenridge

Michelle’s father called to ask if I would be able to fit in a portrait session for his daughter. Full time residents of Arizona, they had a specific day that they would be coming through Breckenridge on the way to their second home in Woodland Park. Michelle spent a lot of time playing at the Riverwalk playground as a child and requested that we take some photos there in addition to the scenic location.  She even loved that the trees had been painted blue (for the international art festival project) and asked for some shots with the blue aspen. I had a ton of fun with Michelle and the whole family! Together, with my ideas and theirs, we ended up with a huge variety of great photos from her senior portrait session.

Laurie M. called to say that she simply wanted a nice family photo taken with the word “Breckenridge” behind them. Her plan is to use the image for Christmas cards! Her family recently relocated to Breck from back east and had the idea of sending holiday cards with the name of their new town right behind them. While we were at the Highline Railroad Park, we also took some fun shots of the kids and a few of Laurie and her husband as well. What a gorgeous autumn day!


Senior Portraits in Breckenridge

We’ve had a lot of fun photographing senior portraits in the last few months. As usual, we’ve worked with a lot of local kids, but this year we had several families who were here on vacation and worked senior portrait sessions into their busy schedules. Check out some of the interesting locations where we shot… all right in Breckenridge.

Family Portraits in Breckenridge, Colorado.

We had a great morning session with this family and their twin girls in Breckenridge. I always recommend scheduling a photo session in the morning so the weather is better and the kids are not hungry or in need of a nap! I also work quickly with children as their attention span is limited, especially when parents are expecting them to be on their best behavior. These little ones hung right in there though and we ended up with great new summer photos of this family.
