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 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!
