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

Our studios glow with soft window light
in any weather and all year long.

of each studio, bathing our subjects with

studios of master painters.

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.
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)
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.
