Portrait Sessions

Session Information

Portrait Session

Party Crashers Photography offers portrait sessions in our studio, at one of our locations or at a location of your choice.

You will have a large variety of poses to choose from, depending on the type of session you choose and who you include in your session. Look through our session suggestions on this page and our portfolio area for ideas. Then call the studio to discuss your session with us.

All sessions require a minimum print order of $200.00 for one family. Additional families will increase required order by $100.00 per family.

Minnesota Landscape Arboretum

If you are interested in a session with only your children, your family or a family reunion, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is a great location all year long. Enjoy the Crabapple trees and the spring flowers in April and May. Summer time has colorful annuals in the gardens and tall grasses in the fields. The colors during the fall is spectacular!


Baby Photo

Capture the changes as your baby grows. Typically, the times you want to capture are- newborn, three months, six months, nine months, one year and 18 months. You may want to look at the “phases” your child goes through: infant, holds her head up, sits up, stands while holding onto something and walking.

If your having you're child photographed for his/her first birthday, you may be interested in having your baby photographed with his/her birthday cake. We provide the cake that is just the right size.

City Lakes

Get the gang together and let's get shootin'. Family sessions can be done in our studio or at any location. We will also photograph your children together and separately. Don't forget to include Grandma and Grandpa in your session.

Mississippi Trail

Located on Nicollet Island in Minneapolis is where you will find our Mississippi Trail. Trestle bridges, cobbled streets and just enough greenery for that urban style. Perfect for a family or older children.

Murphy's Landing

Located on the Minnesota River in Shakopee, this is a unique outside location with a real Minnesota flair. Murphy’s Landing offers turn of the century farms, log cabins and historic homes.


Pet Photo

If pets are part of your family, include them in your session. Furry, feathery or slimy, we love them all. Please notify the studio before bring your pet to your session so that we can be prepared. Note: Some of the locations do not allow pets (MN Landscape Arboretum, Murphy’s Landing, ect.).


Apple Blossems Photo

Spring flowers and the flowering Crabapples at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum looks as good as it smells!

When the Apple Blossoms are blooming, we spend the few short days in the apple orchards. Note: Relying on Mother Nature to have the Apple Blossoms bloom on certain days normally does not work. It is best to contact the studio to show your interest in the Apple Blossoms so that we may put you on our list. Phone or use our Calling Plan.

2017 Session Dates

  • Starting mid April - Spring flowers
  • Late April - early May - Apple Blossoms


Studio Photo

If the great outdoors is not for you, then the studio is the perfect place.

Wayzata Beach
