Welcome to

Kinderling Studio

At Kinderling Studio, we believe that portraits are meant for more than hard drives and holiday cards.

That’s why our portraits are custom framed using strict archival standards.

Because we want to make sure they look as good in thirty years as they do today.

Because it’s not about us. It’s about you.

Because you deserve to have a breathtaking portrait of today protected and preserved for tomorrow.

Your future self will thank you.

The Portrait is Only the Beginning

Art Finishing

Trends come and go. Personal styles change. People move all the time.

That’s why Kinderling art is simple, modern and timeless. Just like your love.


Each work of art is printed on luxurious, artist-quality fine art paper with a beautiful texture that perfectly absorbs the ink so that no detail is lost in production.


Kinderling art is custom framed using strict archival standards. We use only 8-ply 100% cotton rag mats. These mats beautifully showcase your art and help protect it for generations to come.

If a mat’s shade of white is not carefully chosen, the art can look muddy, washed out or strangely colored. That’s why we hand select each mat to ensure the proper shade of white for every work of art that leaves our studio.


When visitors walk into your home, they should be blown away by the art, not the frame. A frame’s job is to enhance and finish a work of art, not to overtake it. Our beautifully crafted, minimalist, modern frames perfectly complement the art we create.

Currently available frames include natural walnut, black, and white.


UV glass protects your art from fading or yellowing over time.

For an even more remarkable finish, upgrade to museum glass, which also provides a nearly glare-free viewing experience.

No session fees.
No minimum orders.
Money back guarantee.

Our prices reflect our commitment to quality and consistency in everything we do. From our extensive session prep to our image selection and editing process to our print quality control and custom archival framing techniques.

We’d rather sell you just one beautifully finished breathtaking work of art than 35 images you have to figure out what to do with on your own.

We don’t require you to buy anything.

AND we offer a money back guarantee.

Because we know that if you don’t love your images, then we haven’t done our job and that’s on us. Not you.

When you book your appointment, we’ll collect a $200 deposit to hold your spot. This deposit will be deducted from your final purchase price. If, for some reason, you are unhappy with your images, your deposit is fully refundable.*

How can we possibly do this?

Because we believe in our product so much that we know you’ll fall in love with it, too.

*The deposit is not refundable due to appointment cancellation.

Our Studio

Clean. Bright. Modern.
Kid Friendly.

Our studio is clean and modern and bathed in natural light.

There is room for children to run and jump and be as wild and free as they please so that natural smiles happen, well, naturally.

Because those are the ones that lift your heart.

And that’s what we care about most.

Our studio is located in the Fisk building in Northeast Minneapolis.

When you book an appointment, we’ll send you complete directions and session prep information.
