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 Family Portrait in Breckenridge

Lynda called to say that she was going to be in Breckenridge with her family and asked if I would take not only some new portraits of her family, but some individual portraits of her. She proudly announced that she was turning fifty and said she would like some new portraits of herself taken on her birthday. She also plans to write a blog about being fifty and wants to use the images for that website as well. I met the Oliver family at One Ski Hill Place and drove them to a nearby, outdoor location for the photography. I was a bit worried because when I left my house, it was -15 degrees. However, by the time we were ready to shoot, it had warmed up to a balmy 10 degrees. They did an amazing job of looking fairly warm on such a cool morning!

A Family Portrait near Copper Mountain

Chrissy called to say that her family would be staying at Copper Mountain and asked if I would find the perfect, outdoor location for a portrait session. They have never had any family portraits taken and she was very excited about this. Chrissy did mention that she wanted a view of the mountains, some aspen trees and preferably some water in the images. I am happy to say that I managed to incorporate all of these requests into one really fun photo shoot.

A Family Christmas at Copper Mountain

Joe moved here to ski for the season and ended up with his entire family visiting for the holidays. They had always wanted to rent a big house together and had not been able to coordinate such a gathering in the past. However, this year it all came together as Joe took the initiative and found an amazing home to rent for the entire group in the gated community of Lewis Ranch above Copper Mountain.  He then called me and asked if I would come to the house and photograph some new family portraits to commemorate the occasion.  After we checked the more formal group photos off of our list, Joe suggested we head to the billiards room for some fun, candid shots. They all had a blast with the photo session, applauded my efforts and thanked me endlessly when I left.

A Holiday, Family Reunion at the Bella Monte Lodge in Breckenridge Colorado

Beth called to ask if I could come to the Bella Monte Lodge over the holidays to take some portraits of their group while they were here in town celebrating her parent’s 50th anniversary.  When I arrived, I was greeted with a family that was excited to be together and ready to have some fun while getting new family portraits made.

Her dream was to have a "winter" shot for her senior portraits!
