Family Sessions | Carmel Family Photographer

Whether you are a local family or just enjoying a vacation on the Central Coast, Mint Portrait Studio has a Family Session option for you.

LUXE Sessions at Mint Portrait Studio are ALL photographed and artistically designed by our principle photographer, Rachel Lambert. Rachel is typically assisted by an intern or associate to ensure the highest quality session for your family. LUXE sessions are designed for the client who wants only the best in custom portraiture, and their goal is to create timeless artwork for their home and/or a family heirloom. It is custom photographic art that is specially designed for your space. This can mean a wall piece, a keepsake folio box, an heirloom album and/or any digital negatives you desire to preserve.
