nine years running

Generations of thoughtful families have shared their lives with us since we

opened in 1973. Right now we boast the best team of creatives, assistants

and printers we've had in 45 years as a studio.

Recently, we lost our founder, father and grandfather Don Busath. Every

day our team pursues the same goals he did, to create honest, beautiful

portraits that stand the test of time.

We take immense pride in knowing and serving you. Please accept our

sincere thanks for the loyalty you've shown us throughout the years.

From our "studio family" to yours,

Drake, Bromley and Richard

We have just created three new outdoor settings for families and children.

window light


Our studios glow with soft window light

in any weather and all year long.

Illumination comes from the entire wall

of each studio, bathing our subjects with

a flattering and dynamic light, just like the

studios of master painters.

A warm fireplace, natural window light,

and a myriad of backdrop choices, from

modern to classic, make our studios

truly unique.

Carriage House Studio

Studio family session $145

Warm, glowing light in any weather. Keep the style of your portrait simple and

timeless in one of our comfortable window light studios.

what to wear? busath color palettes

When you book a session, we’ll send you our Fresh Classics Color Palettes with samples of

over 20 families dressed in different color palettes. Each has three or four color swatches

and simple instructions to follow. Choose a palette you like and email it to your family.

This makes what used to be challenging, well... pretty easy.


wall portraits

Very few portrait photographers print their own

work these days. We continue to make each wall

print by hand, on the longest-lasting canvas and

fine-art papers known to man.

Our canvas portraits can be mounted to acid-free

art board, or stretched onto a frame, like painters

have done for ages. You can then choose to add a

palette knife or brushed glaze for a painterly texture

and a lifetime of protection.

nearby location session $245

Have a location in mind for your portrait? We’d love to see it. If not, let us help you choose from

our favorite mountain, canyon, or lakeside locations.

There is no reason to go anywhere else for your

framing needs. We carry dozens of frame mouldings,

carefully curated to suit our portraiture.

Shown 30x45 wrapped canvas print ($1900)

seamless familycomposites

The Busath Seamless Portrait is built for large families, even when you are not all in

town at the same time. We photograph families one at a time, and later,

artfully arrange them into a single grouping.

The framed and finished portrait (at least 60 inches long) makes a stunning

conversation piece and shows your family how important they are to you.

• Missing persons can be added later

• Calm, short sessions for best expressions

• Each person can be posed in a flattering way

• Closer view provides a more intimate feeling

• Superior lighting and depth

the eight-year-old tradition

The long-standing family tradition of eight-yearold

really begin to show in portraits.
