Photos Forever LLC, was established in 2006 as a formal company but the photographer, John Bartos, has been taking amazing portraits for over fifteen years. Coming from a family of artists, John has an eye for catching that unique moment, that unique memory with his camera that will touch your heart. While he enjoys taking photos of landscape scenery, his passion has always been photographing children, families and high school seniors.
Our goal is to provide our customers with a customized portrait session in a casual, relaxed and fun atmosphere. The studio sits on 10 acres of one of the most breathtaking properties in Chanhassen with lake access. This provides us the opportunity to take unique and gorgeous photos onsite at the studio. The studio itself has a comfortable cabin like feel to it. We have many props and back drops to utilize and we encourage you to bring anything that is special to you that you would want in the photograph. For example, a favorite toy or blanket for an infant or small child, equipment from your favorite sport or activity. Love your car or motorcycle? Bring it for a unique and specialized portrait. A typical session wont be more than two hours but know that we are willing to take as long as necessary particularly for small children. Sometimes it'll take longer for small children to warm up and become comfortable with the photographer before we can get the smile that is unique to that child. We're willing to wait for it!
